Today’s technique challenge was to use a grid design. I decide to do a layout about the day I took my niece to lunch on Mars (by way of NYC of course!) Page designed using Artisan 6 software!
When asked to scrap about something mundane that I do, feeding the family came to mind — specifically, Sunday breakfast. Most of the time my family doesn’t eat breakfast together – we all grab something: an egg, a cup of coffee, some cereal, or maybe just a banana. On weekends, for as long as I can remember, we’ve gone out for Sunday brunch. Covid-19 changed that and we were stuck home eating anything that was easy to grab like any other day of the week. At some point I “flipped the switch” and decided to be more grateful for my wonderful kitchen and the fact that I had my entire family with me. I thought about ways I could make Sunday brunch enjoyable again. I just needed to change my mindset. Now waking up early and baking the family a nice brunch has become something I really enjoy and look forward to as much as they enjoy eating it.
For the technique I used basic colored cardstock and added some textures to it.
I may be enjoying the Florida sunshine but I’m sure my pup misses all the snow. I was thinking about the weather across the country today and decided to make a page about Chloe’s first big snow as an “adult” dog! Layout created using Artisan6 software
My layout today is all about my beloved dog, Chloe, who means the world to me. There are so many words I could’ve used to describe her but wanted to limit this to a one page layout. She really is the best dog ever!

It’s easy to scrapbook older photos and events when I create my page layouts. Now and then I am challenged to create a page that’s more of a “slice of life” moment describing things in real time. This is one of those pages that focuses, specifically, on where I am in life right now.

As you probably know (or can easily guess) I am obsessed with crafts and have been since I was little. What you may not know is that my best friend since high school is as craft-crazed as I am! Luckily for me we have had the opportunity to take many craft classes together over the years. This page is just a nod to some of our projects! As you can see we have done everything from lamp making, jewelry design, hand knitting, painting, altered art, scrapbooking, etc. If it’s a cool craft you can assume we have either done it or hope to take a class in the future!
One of my favorite spaces in my house isn’t technically indoors. We have a lovely lanai and I think it’s one of the most beautiful and peaceful places for me. It’s where I spent the most time relaxing and a great space to just … breathe.

Rome had always been a city I dreamed of visiting. My husband felt the same way. We almost went there for our honeymoon but the cost was a bit steep for us at the time. We both agreed that “someday” we would go there together. It took us twenty years but we finally made it to “the Eternal City” and it was as spectacular as we had hoped. We may have had to wait two decades but it was definitely worth the trip!

Today’s layout challenge from Scrap Happy was to find inspiration in a magazine cover. The recent issue with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell inspired me to “scraplift” the cover and design a page with my guy. Designed using Artisan 6 software.
When my two sons were little I always called them my boys. When they became adults I called them … well, my BOYS. Yes they’re both grown adult men now. I was recently asked what I call them since “boys” makes them sound like they’re still little. Honestly I can’t imagine calling them anything else. Am I crazy?
