Rashes and Rain - Making Memories Passport

Loving Making Memories stuff right now. They seem to be getting it just right on all their products. And my revamped Michaels is awesome! Picked up the Making Memories, Prima and K and Co. there for this one.

This trip was ridiculous. The first time we took the boat out, it rained. The first time while we were out in the middle of this huge lake, getting used to figuring out the boat, of course! The fog and rain clouds obscured the banks and it was a nail-biter trying to find our way back to our campsite dock, thinking the whole time, "WHY did I let him get this friggin' boat?" :) Our RV spot was a muddy mess and getting the dogs in and out was a pain. But! We hung around and waited out the rain. I like the pictures we got, though :) So it's all good. Never did figure out what that nasty rash was that Sara got.

Chloe's Closet

Love the new Chloe's Closet from Making Memories. It will be perfect for all the outdoor pictures we take at Matt's parents. Love the mix of patterns and colors and all the embellies.

Cute stamp from 3 Scrappy Boys this month!

Love these pictures of Emily and John Luke, her cousin. We went to visit John Luke's dad, DH's brother, when he was home on a visit from Iraq, on his way to Afghanistan.

A Couple More ...

Hating my scanner for sure! Totally blurs my layouts. I'm glad to have tons of pics of when the girls were younger that I've never had the time to scrap. Now that they're getting bigger, it makes me happy to go scrap events from a few years ago and makes me smile :)

Sara's friend Rebecca cracks me up. She's very cute and very bubbly and very dramatic. As they were doing last-minute studying for semester exams this week, Rebecca shouts out, "You're such a NERD, Sara! You know all the answers!" LOL! We laughed about it on the way home from school and I had to scrap it that night. Using some of that cute Colorbok in my stash. I love all the bright colors and fun patterns.

Snow Joy - White Challenge

My friend Donna at Happy Scrappin came up with a cool idea that really got me inspired to play around with this layout. It was do one in all white, off-white, clear and/or bling. It even made me pull out some vellum for cutting the flowers :) They have a contest going until the 15th, I think, if you want to give it a shot!

I'm going to use it as my stash challenge this week at 3 Scrappy Boys and see what those ladies come up with.

My packrat ways came in handy. Used a piece I'd tossed into my scrap things from an old frame. It was great for some dimension and putting the white UTEE on the glass edges.
