Beautiful Spring

Here’s the third page I’ve made using Paintshop Pro x4.  I can’t wait to get into the more advanced features but gotta walk before I run! I’m glad I registered for the class to learn the software because I was getting no where on my own.  I downloaded the “free trial” so I need to decide within 30 days if it is what I’m looking for to be able to design some of my own elements.

Beautiful Texas Bluebonnets

A facebook friend just shared this photo taken by Linda Long Goodman of Texas bluebonnets near Ennis, TX.  I love spring in Central Tx when our landscape is blanketed with Bluebonnets & Indian Paintbrushes.  I have some pictures of my own that I’ll post another time but this one was just so beautiful I wanted to share. The kit I used is Bring May Flowers by DigiCyberScraps.  Check it out at


83 and counting!

This past Wednesday was my mother’s 83rd birthday.  Three years ago my sister & I threw her an 80th Surprise birthday party.  It was not easy making all the arrangements when neither one of us live where she does.  But it turned out great & I think she was surprised!

Is it time yet?

My grand-daughter is ready for Easter.  She has her personalized easter basket all prepared with grass in it. Her mommy & aunt have a monogram shop so she has a lot of personalized stuff, including her basket and dress! Now the waiting starts, which can seem like a lifetime to a four-year old.  Her only question now is ~ “Is it time yet?” Only a little over a week to go!

Last nights Speed Scrap

Well we got to do a speed scrap last night after all.  One of the ladies in the group stepped up & filled in for our regular leader since she’s still in the hospital.  Here is the scrap I did last night.  I hadn’t expected to do one so I didn’t have much prep time but I think it turned out great.


We didn’t have a Speed Scrap tonight. Our leader just had a baby a few days ago & she’s still in the hospital.  I’m posting one from a few weeks ago.  This photo is from the Corpus Christi Aquarium.  They have some beautiful creatures there.  This page was made with “Funky Fishtank” A Saxon Creation from  If you’d like to give digital scrapping a whirl use this code STMMMS57865.  You’ll get $10 off the software & $10 worth of merchandise from online store.  I know you’ll love it!


Cowboys & Cowgirls

Here is a photo of my niece & her husband.  They got married last year & blended their families.  Her son is in the black hat.  He has 2 sons and a daughter.  They’re a very cute couple & seem to do great parenting their children.  I pray they’ll live happily ever after.  This page was made using Denim & Daisies Pack by Just So Scrappy from
