Doing this Layout brought back happy memories (although as much as I loved the sketch, this LO isnt my fav!) of this past June.  My whole family went up to the Finger Lakes in New York for 4 days to celebrate my twin nephews graduation from college.  I found The Memory Nest as Leslie was kind enough to leave several nice comments! Thanks for taking a look!

It's just been a scrappy day!

This is the last one for the day, it's been fun but I am done!  My brother (and now his daughter for sure!) is an avid Philadelphia Phillies fan; they even had their daughter's name put up on the board for her 1st birthday as you will see here!  I did this one for My Scrap & More Sketches.  Thanks once again for popping in!!!

It's a DUSTY ATTIC kinda day...

Hi!  This is for the monthly sketch over at Dusty Attic.  The other requirement is that you use Dusty Attic's chipboard product on your page.  Well, that is easy because it's so pretty in addition I am totally into chipboard right now!  I used the tiny butterflies, alphas, the wire, the small crown, the 2 arrows and I even cut the edge off of a 12 x 12 sheet of gears to make a straight border mid page.  Thanks for taking a peak today!

My niece Marrah, 16 mos, all proud of herself!

Brian, 5 on 10/4/14, 1st Karate lesson.

I run some challenges over at  (Also an ATC swap if you're interested!) So, I did this LO for the monthly 5 Ingredients +Yours Challenge  over there. It is the thank you note my twin nephews sent me after they both graduated from (different) colleges this past May 2014.  They are both 22 now and were only 11 when my brother (their dad) passed away from brain cancer.  We have stayed super close to them since then are just SO PROUD of them...I KNOW my brother is watching over them....Congrats Brian & Michael!...oh...and they both got good jobs!!!!!

Thanks for taking a peek-I really appreciate the visits!
