Everything ABC's Blog Hop ~ Letter 'D'

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter 'D'.
 This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. 
Whatever the crafter has chosen as their 'D' element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at 
Linda's blog ~ Scrappy Therapy 

If you came from Janna Grey of The Creative Princess then you're on the right track!

The first is a card I made for my Darling Husband ~ we have been together for 30 years on the 13th of February...

This is a Frame I gave him as a gift...
I just Love creating Home Decor Items

This is a Layout I created ~ we had a great day at Homesteader Days in Kingston
Mom & Dad LOVE their Ice Cream... 

For my card:
I used colonial white & grey cardstock 
Colonial white grosgrain ribbon
Bitty pearls (30th anniversary is Pearl)
I used several stamps to get the sentiment on the front and on the inside I use 10 Things & substituted 30

For the frame:
Matt is white & Lagoon Blue Cardstock
Stamp is from

For the 2 page layout I used the workshop on the go
Hopscotch (one of my favorite)

Now head off to the next stop on our Everything ABC'S blog Hop ~  The next stop is Catherine Nowak of Catscrapbooking 

In case you get lost along the way…go to Scrappy Therapy for a complete list of participants!

Keep on playing with paper

Scrap Booking layouts

I have been helping Dad with sorting through some of mom's stuff in her craft room ~ her very full craft room...

I came across some pictures that she had ready to put in their scrapbook ~ so I am finishing off all the albums so dad can enjoy them

Here are a few of the pages:

First is a 2 page layout using Florentine (previous paper packet).  There is space on the first page for a large picture that we are getting printed.  the 2nd page shows a beautiful rainbow & the evening sky afterwards ~ there were 4 oictures altogether, so I used flip flaps for the additional pictures and there is a place for journalling inside (I have left all journaling blank so Dad do this)

2 page layout
Flip Flaps open, showing pages for journalizing the event

I have taken the page out of the page protector so you can see it clearer

Happy Anniversary ~ this was from Mom & Dad's 50th Wedding anniversary in 2011
Again I have left the Journal spots for Dad to fill in (or let me know what he wants written)

This will be a long process, and Dad is looking forward to all the albums being finished to enjoy ~ I am enjoying spending the time scapping for Mom!  

Keep on playing with Paper!
