Happiness

Happy Sunday,

Hope everyone had a fantastic week. It went by pretty fast for me but I was able to get a layout completed.

On Tuesday my daughter stopped by and so did my son with my granddaughter. It's not to often that I get all three of them in the same place at the same time so this was a real treat for me.

I'm on a mission to use up all my old stash so I have no idea of the names and brands. I'm just pulling pieces of this and that that I like and going with it.


Hope everyone has a fantastic week.

Sleeping Beauty

Happy Sunday!

This week I'm sharing a quick scrapbook page of my granddaughter. what kid doesn't fall asleep in the car? I know mine used to all the time. But when we got home they somehow got their second wind. I wonder what's going to happen when she gets home.

I found this paper from my stash that matched with her clothing, had the flower pack from the dollar bin I think from AC Moore, paper strips came from a 2x12 paper pack and the journal sheet came from a book that came with a scrapbook kit I got when our local scrapbook store was going out of business.

Saratoga Races

Happy Sunday,

My daughter is home! YEAH!!! She still has months, maybe even years of therapy but she is home and much more comfortable. With that said, I want to thank everyone for all the well wishes and prayers you have been sending. I think they have made a tremendous impact on her recovery.

I went on a bus trip August 12th to Saratoga for the day. I didn't bring a camera or anything but I did have my phone with me so I used that to take some pictures. Nothing spectacular, but enough for me to make a scrapbook layout.

Just a quick layout so save my memorabilia. There were 10 races with race one being cancelled. I won 4 of the nine I bet on. Still lost for the day but I had a great time. I plan on purchasing tickets for next year as well.

RAK

Happy Sunday,

For my post this week I would like to show you some Happy Mail I received.

I came home from visiting my daughter at the hospital the other night and there was a package addressed to me. I knew I have not done any shopping online since her accident so I was very curious as to what it was. I thought maybe my husband purchased something. But once I opened it, it was a RAK from Joan Borgelt. Joan's gift put a huge smile on my face. I actually sat down opened up the packages and looked through all the little pieces. Now I'm excited to start using some of this ephemera.

I want to send a huge THANK YOU to Joan for her kindness. Because of this little RAK, I think  I also got the little nudge I needed to get back into my regular routine.

I did use the eye chart and eye glasses that was part of the ephemera in my journal page that night. Tammy actually had a procedure on her eyes for the second time that day and it was successful, so I thought that would be appropriate to put in there.

 
 
THANKS AGAIN JOAN!!!

Whale Tale

Good Morning,

I missed my Sunday post this week. Guess I had a lot going on. I did have a relaxing Saturday. I took a bus trip and went on a whale watch. We had perfect weather and the water wasn't to choppy. The boat was a high speed catamaran which helps break some of the choppy water. It was a bit over crowded and hard to get a good spot next to the rail. I did squeeze in a bit and got a few decent shots. There were two whales we were following and they did breach but I didn't get to see that. One of the drawbacks of being short. After the whale watch we made a quick stop at Quincy Market. We had about two and a half hours to spend there. It was hot being off the water. So we decided to find a restaurant and go sit down and have something to eat. It's a good thing we sat down when we did because by the time we were done eating we only had ten minutes to spare to get back to the bus.
