Birthday Party!

Here are some pictures of my granddaughter’s first birthday!  She didn’t feel well that day but she rallied round.  The kit I used is Birthday Party from Digi Cyber Scraps available at

Today's Challenge Word – Signs

Today’s challenge word is signs.  I love going to antique stores and looking at all the goodies.  This kit “Southern Magnolias” by Touched By A Butterfly has so many great elements I just had to make this page.  One thing you can always find in an antique store is signs.  I love ’em.


Today's Challenge Word-Finger

This was not a “let’s finger paint” moment. My sweet, creative granddaughter work up before daddy.  I guess she didn’t see the need to wake him up so she got into her mommies oil paint and got busy. When daddy woke up she was asleep beside him (I guess she wore herself out) and blue from head to toe!  Freaked him out, lol!!  It was a very smurfy day!

Today’s photo challenge word is building.  We have a lot of building going on in our small town.  The interstate is being widened and taking out half of our town.  It’s out with the old and in with the new.  We no longer have a bank, we have an ITM!  We’ve gotten a new shopping center and a Dollar General store now. Woo Hoo!  Ch-ch-ch-changes all around.  For this layout I used Southern Magnolias by Touched By A Butterfly.


Wedding Day!

Last year my niece and her boyfriend decided to get married in Las Vegas.  It was a second marriage for both of them and I guess they wanted to have a little fun.  “Elvis” serenaded her as he walked her down the aisle then he married them.  It had to have been a hoot.  The kit I used here is a new release called Wedding Day by Touched By A Butterfly.  It will be in the mymemories store early next week.  I think this kit is absolutely beautiful!

Template Challenge

Here are a few of the pictures from our reunion a couple of weeks ago.  We had an awesome time and I wanted to capture a few of the activities.  This layout is a template by Lindsay Jane.  I really love the layout of the photos on this template.


Happy Garden Freebie and Challenge

Touched By A Butterfly is giving away this cute little freebie on her facebook page.  Once you get the freebie your challenge is to make a layout with the kit and post it on her facebook page for a chance to win the kit of your choice in her store.  WOW! It’s a win/win/win some more. Here’s the layout I made using Happy Garden.

Favorite Color Challenge

Today’s challenge is “favorite color”.  This one is very difficult for me.  I have a lot of faves and favorite color combinations.   At the top of the list is RED.  If I’ve got red, yellow and green in a layout I’m going to be very happy.  This combo rocks as far as I’m concerned.  Here’s one example.


Did you say Honey Bear?

Here are couple of layouts of my favorite little honey bee!  They’re almost 3 years old now but priceless to me.  I used another new kit from Touched By A Butterfly called Honey Bear.  I just love this kit!  The font on “Queen Bee” is Curlz MT.
