Our Story

Our story began on a beautiful morning in early September 1989.  I remember the day like it happened yesterday. I was worried about the weather it was cloudy but the sun was shining and rain or shine I was marrying my best friend.   We celebrate 27 years of marriage this year. 

I have used this paper collection recently for my Niece Aryanna's Wedding Scrapbook and decided I wanted some of my Wedding Pictures in the same collection.  Here is the sketch I used from Stuck?! Sketches. 

I am also using this page as an audition for Shabby is Chic Boutique.

Look at those young kids.  They followed their hearts and six kids later are still in love.  I have to admit I am glad I waited for the supplies you can get today are much different than in 1989.

Karrah Pretty Cute

There has been so much going on in my household.  Renovations and getting the kids ready for school.  I found this treasure of Karrah on her first day of Kindergarten. She had been on the ketogenic diet almost a year and was leaving her Special Education class for the mainstream Kindergarten.   

I used the sketch from Stuck?! Sketches
