A couple new pages

I have been going through my mom's old photos. Hoping to discover who all these people are lol.

I am having a great time scrapping them!

this one is My Aunt Carol. My mom's sister. On her wedding day.

I have no idea who these lil guys are.. but aren't they cute? I'd say it's from the 50's..

some new pages

I've been working on getting my scrappin done, now that 31 days is over.. I can catch up a little..
I will NEVER be caught up, since I have drawers and boxes full of photos.. and constantly taking new pics..
but it will be nice to get a few more books filled up with our family memories.

I am going to start a new book of "me"
all about me.
it's going to be hard I think. to open up to even myself.. but I think it will help.
my hubs is always wanting me to talk to him.. to open up.
this may just be what I need to get going.

I will have pics soon of those new pages..

but for now..

I'm working on lots of stuff. :)

Quality time with Gramma

I made this scrapbook page for Scraps of Darkness Round Robin challenge.
I admit, I was late.
but I suppose I had a good excuse..
my youngest's b-day
I'm sick
I'm lazy

not lazy so much..
but yanno?

I sprayed a paper with some green ink and tore it..
added some pics of my girls decorating grammas yard when they were little
lots of Scraps of Darkness embellies from my OCT kit and papers..

I made it simple because.. well.. I was short on time.
as usual

does someone want to work for me?
or exercise for me?
or clean my house?
or raise my kids?
or sleep for me?
or luff my hubby?

ok.. no to the hubby.. that's all me baby!

but the rest..
any volunteers?
I'll pay ya in scrapbook supplies!
I am totally loving this kit!
I truly love the quality and coordination of the scraps of darkness kits.

hopefully I can get my workout in tonight.
I tried last night.. but couldn't breathe much.. so cut it short..
and today is worse..
so maybe it's a hot tea and scrappin night!
