See you later alligator...PICTURE THIS!

I just cracked myself up when I chose this title word bubble for my sleeping grandsons Brian and Talan.  We  had just left the zoo when they went out like a light! After all--it was a busy day there!!! LOL...This is a design team layout for PICTURE THIS! (<---click and go right there!)  The challenge is to use 2 photos, dots, stars and layers.  Hope you will get a chance to join us!

Here is my Layout:
I was inspired by a sketch by *kim* on although
 I turned it and changed it up quite a bit-her sketches there are wonderful!

Thank you for visiting and for your nice comments!

Who doesn't love PIZZA?

Hi Everyone!  The photos were from August 2014.  I took my grandsons Brian & Talan to a PIZZA PARTY at the local library. I used sketch #1, week #1 in the monthly sketch challenge along with another challenge to use food pictures, BOTH at, to make the following layout...instantly the idea of these pizza pictures came to me and I created my own pepperoni pizza out of circles-easy peasy!  The title (PIZZA) I did on the silhouette cameo along with the pizza slice,  which I then tucked under the word PIZZA.  I had so much fun doing this layout. 
Thanks for taking a peek!

I know it's SPRING-but this is WINTER!

Hello!  This is my niece, Marrah.  She is almost 2-this was March 2015.  It is such fun to see the little ones having so much fun in the stuff we don't like so much anymore! LOL!  This is a Design Team LO for THE MEMORY NEST.  There was some inspiration from a LO by Tara on called Pride & Joy; I liked the way her pictures were lined up and I expanded on that...Hope you will have a chance to join us!


Thanks for your visit !

Hi Everyone!  I am here today with a new sketch from STICK IT DOWN (click to go there!) and my corresponding Design Team Layout.  In the sketch that follows, the hexagons were so prominent I just had to use them!  This is my step daughter at 7 and her future significant other; at a time that they didn't even know each other!  Thanks for stopping by and if you get some time--join us!

just little young me...PICTURE THIS!

Hello!  It's May!  Is it me or does time fly by faster every year?!  Thanks for popping in-it's the 1st of 2 monthly challenges at PICTURE THIS!  This is the challenge:  2 pictures, Black & white & yellow and a doily. I RARELY use yellow but love the color!  I used original undated photos of ME-I appear to be around 3 or 4 (was I really ever 3 or 4?!! LOL), so it is the late 1950s.  Hope you will get a chance to join us!
