LM #267 - Someone Special

Our theme this month at Lasting Memories is "Thankful" and this weeks challenge was to create a layout about someone who is or was special in your life. This past Wednesday was Rememberance Day and I was sent some photo's of my grandparents who met in WW2 so I did a digital layout. Been awhile and I couldn't remember how to access it after I saved it! 

My grandparents are both gone now, but she was a nurse and he was a soldier in WW2 and from there they went on and married, had 6 children. It's neat to see these photo's but also to have that piece of history in my family. 

Come on over and visit LM to see some more special people and hope you can play along

Remember me?? A lot of changes have been happening in my life and unfortunately, blogging really fell on the back burner. I could hardly keep up with life period! But I've made some changes for the better and things are settling so hoping to get back to crafting. I miss it!

At Lasting Memories, this month's theme was "Together" and one of our challenges was to create a layout based on the theme and I thought this was perfect - my grandma and one of her sons. (this is a repost) This was actually a Halloween kit, but I'm not big on Halloween and neither are my kids so I had to get creative and came up with a more heritage look! Love the way it turned out!

We have one more week of challenges till we kick off August with a bunch of new challenges and theme! Hope everyone is enjoying their summer and thanks for stopping by!

LM #242 - Strength

Hey all! I know, long time no see right?? This working thing really cuts into my style! I'm so behind this month at Lasting Memories but I am spending this week catching up! Our theme for May is "Life's Affirmations" and each week we have had a theme which I'll show you throughout this week! But this week, our theme is "Strength" and I chose to showcase a 2 page layout from when my daughter was 6 - she had never played ball and she was pretty scared about the whole thing but she conquered her fear and ended up playing all positions and had a blast!

Thanks for stopping by!

Fun Mini Photo Shoot w/Andrew and Caitlyn

On Friday my son brought his girlfriend home from University and asked me to do a little photo shoot down by the lake. Unfortunately it was windy and freezing so we had to figure something else out. I love how these turned out - they look very happy and HE is asking me to take pics!!! If you look close, you can even see the snowflakes falling .. yes, it is STILL snowing and STILL cold here! UGH

Time to Travel!

Morning all! This week starts a new theme at Lasting Memories and our theme this month is TRAVEL! Very cool! Our challenge this week is "Mystic Mountains" which doesn't mean it has to be about mountains - check out the challenge to see how we did different takes on this one! For mine, I decided to showcase this page of a trip we took in 2009 to a place called "Palmer Rapids" and while we weren't in the middle of actualy mountains, to us it felt that way with all the rocks, climbs etc. Was very cool! Kids learned to kayak and body surf that weekend! To me, they moved mountains just by taking on those challenges :)

LM #232 - So Happy Together

Morning! As you know, our theme at Lasting Memories this month is "Friendship" and this week, our challenge for you is "So Happy Together" and I thought this layout was perfect. This is a page from the wedding album I did for my friend. I actually LOVE this page. I think it was one of my fav's from the whole album. The flowers were all bunched together in the package, which gave me the 'bouquet' idea! Love it!

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you can join the fun!

LM #228 - Sweet as can Be

This week at Lasting Memories, out challenge is "Sweet as Can Be". If you really want to challenge yourself, try to use food somewhere on your layout to keep with our food theme. This wknd was our annual winter retreat and I had one goal - to start and finish a wedding album as a gift for a friend. And I did! So today's layout is one of those pages and is perfect for this weeks challenge!

I have to look, but the overlay is either from Cricut's "Paperlace" or "Artbooking" cartridge and the cake is from the "Sweetheart" cartridge. I tried to make it match her actual cake, not bad!

Come on over and see what everyone else did!! Gorgeous work over there! Thanks for stopping by!

LM #225 - Life's Lesson "Chocolate Pizza"

Morning all! Happy Sunday and guess what! Time for a new challenge at Lasting Memories and this week we are challenging you to create a layout showcasing a "Life's Lesson" .. I hope you can take a moment and pop by the challenge as well because there are some awesome layouts over there and some great life lessons too! Here's my take on this weeks challenge:

A few years ago, my cousin and I took our girls on a crafty road trip and we stopped at Boston Pizza for lunch. After lunch, the waitress asked the girls if they would like a "chocolate pizza" to which they both said YES PLS! Well!! When their 'pizza' came to the table, we all burst out laughing! It was the size of a toonie!!!! Life lesson??? Things aren't always what they seem!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fabulous day!

They Call It Puppy Love

So life in the Wilson household is settling, slowly (lol) and this little guy has certainly got a hold of my heart strings. Ashleigh loves him to pieces and he's crazy about her. With his crazy antics, his "i'm not tired" face, his "i'm grumpy and tired" growl before he crashes .. his 5 laps around the table to see who will catch him first to cuddling up on the couch beside you when he's had enough .. hubby took these today, but I didn't realize I was actually in the photo's so when he sent them to me I was surprised as I actually love the pics!

I think this last one if my fave

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you're having a fabulous weekend and cya back here tmw with a new challenge at Lasting Memories and a pretty funny layout :)
