Apple pickin' time

Love this photo and decided to go old school for this page.
There are times when you just gotta!
 I didn't want typical fall colors - mostly because I
didn't have any in my stash.
 Therefore, keying of the kidlets clothes found
a sort of autumn match.
 Love how it turned out.

Finding forgotten kid art

Favorite youngest son came home for a few
days this past week and it was sooooo
good to see him.
He had previously dropped a ton of stuff he had
at the house since he became a truck driver
and had nowhere else to put his possesions. So when
he was home we went went through stuff in order to clean
up the spare room.
 During the clean up we came across this gem that
was in my mom's stuff as we were putting things up-
(he had one of her scrapbooks and we were putting it in one
of mom's many trunks for safekeeping).
 Shane brought to my attention to this card he made for
his memaw and of course she kept it laying in plain sight
in her trunk. (I need to get in those trunks more)!
 I really didn't want to put the journaling on the actual card
but I couldn't figure out where to put it but
I think it worked out.
Shane would draw things anytime, any place, anywhere
and some of his drawings were kept.
In my journaling, since I didn't really know, I think memaw
at the time was scrapping and gave Shane something to do so.
He loved cars as all boys do, drew the car, fussy cut it out
and placed in on a map and gave it to
Memaw as a card.
If you look close the map is Hawaii. 
Love it!
Of course it needed to be scrapped and the story told.
I just wish he had time to keep on drawing.

Halloween cards

And for once I'm ahead of the game.
Anyhoo, instead of making the cards exactly the same this year
I used the tons of stuff leftover from prior years;
 a mix of Echo Park and K&Company stickers
and cut aparts.
I'm hoping that I can do that for future cards as well.
I also tried to keep in mind that the age range of grands
is from 3-15 so I'm trying to make
cards age appropriate-sort of LOL!
Now to remember to mail these badboys out in time!

Rearranging things - last photo

 This photo was in the master bath and was replaced by the Crater Lake
that finally printed correctly.
 As a matter of fact, this is one of my all time fav pix that came out just right
so I wanted to keep things to a minimum.
I adore that moose.
Thankfully, Holli made a bunch for me LOL!
Put Yellowstone on your bucket list
(put all the national parks on your list actually).

It was fun replacing the old pix with the new.
I also replaced (while I was getting carried away) the pix of
the grandkids that are on the shelf above my scrappy desk.

Recollections, M's alpha stamp, punch
and masking tape and some netting underneath.

Rearranging things - Another purple photo

Another 8x10 backed on by 8.5x11 kraft paper
that replaced a lighthouse hanging in our kitchen
and yes, another printed purple picture
that I couldn't toss.
 I had a lot of space in this photo and some
stuff that wasn't necessary so I covered it up with a tag
that holds some journaling.
You might remember this photo from our trip
this year and its also in my road trip album.
 Found some oversized title too
and why not.
Also those cute little whale stamps (gifted from Holli)
and seriously when and I'm gonna ever gonna use a whale stamp.
