Two Page Scrapbook Layout - "Outback"

One last zoo layout to share. I can't believe how much these babies have grown in the last two years.
 I silently struggled with the color combination on this layout until the person in charge of the crop I was at stopped by and told me how much she loved the combination of colors and how well they worked together! That really stuck with me. Maybe sometimes we overthink our choices?
 These cuties are my favorites!! Love the time we spend together.

Two Page Scrapbook Layout - "Zoo Day - Fun Day"

Here's another zoo layout from a few years back. Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
 My sweet Scarlet tickling the orangutan's chin. She's so adorable. It was a fun way to spend time as a family before Jacob (and girlfriend Katie) went back to college.

 We have a great zoo in Fort Wayne. It ranks up there as one of the best children's zoos in the country. #FWproud

Two Page Scrapbook Layout - "Wild About You"

You would never know that I'm fairly caught up in my scrapbooking. The problem is the posting...I seem to struggle to keep up with it. I'll get on a roll and them just forget to post!

So, here's a layout from a few summers back when our family went to the zoo here in Fort Wayne. If you've never been to our zoo, you definitely to come and visit!
 This is one of my favorite zoo layouts. I love the paper and the animal silhouettes. I feel like if the animals were layered in color, the layout would just be too busy.
 And the beautiful humans in these pictures are my favorite! Family times are the best. We sure do have fun together...well most of the time. ;)
 The grandkids had a great time too. :)

Two Page Scrapbook Layout - "Fort4Fitness"

My husband and son participated in Fort Wayne's Fort4Fitness Spring Cycle a few years back. The morning started out a little bit wet, but they had a great time pedaling through the city and beyond.
 Jacob rode farther than my hubby, but the important thing is they both pushed themselves and finished strong.
 And...most importantly, I got some great pics of the event so that we can remember the event for years to come.

Two Page Scrapbook Layout - "Darling"

Our granddaughter is the sweetest! She's such a blessing to our family. She's funny, spirited, and sometimes even feisty, but she is and always will be my sunshine.

These pics were taken of an outing with just her and PawPaw and I. We had a fun breakfast and time at the park.

Wow! How was this two years ago, already??

One page Scrapbook layout - "Smooth"

This is my son, Jacob! He's my youngest and will be married to his sweetheart next weekend!! Such a rush of emotions when I think about him moving out...
I love this picture of him. This was a professional pic taken while he was part of an a Capella singing group.

Scrapbook Layout - "Sunset Views"

Here's a layout from our trip to Northern Michigan last year. The sun was setting while we travelling up the coast, so we stopped at the nearest harbor we could find to catch the last rays fading behind the horizon.

 It was a gorgeous night! I'd never heard of Bowers Harbor until that day, but it was beautiful!
 I love the silhouettes of my son looking out towards the lake. This was his last vacation with us as a single guy. He's getting married next month! We hope to take a trip there with our kids, their spouses and our grandchildren in the next few years.

Two Page Scapbook Layout - "Up North"

Northern Michigan is one of my favorite "happy places". The west coast of Michigan, Traverse City, Mackinaw...I love it all! Here is a layout from our stay in Traverse City.

 The pics aren't the most flattering of us, but we had fun taking selfies...

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!!

Two Page Scrapbook Layout - "My Sunshine"

I'm enjoying posting some layouts again. I have so many that I'd like to share, so I'm trying to stick with the blogging.

This layout is just me and my granddaughter being silly and having fun. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. I sure do love this sweet girl!!

Two Page Scrapbook Layout - "Tin Caps Baseball"

Who doesn't love a good home town baseball game? Well, me, actually. I am not a fan of baseball, but I do love to go for the sole purpose of spending time with the family.

Here's a layout from a night at the ball park with my family and my coworkers from Brotherhood Mutual. It was a great night, even if the fireworks are my favorite part.

Two Page Scrapbook Layout - "My Life in Legos"

This is a fun layout that needs some explanation. One of the guys I work with is a Master with Legos. He wins competitions around the country with his awesome creations. This is a replica of the Second Temple of Israel. It was amazing!

More to the side story...The insurance company we work for planned an incentive trip for our agents to the Holy Lands to commemorate our company's 100th year in business. He and I both work hard to plan the trips, so he built this replica of the temple and brought it in big pieces to work. It was on display in our cafeteria for a few weeks. He added lego people to the top and around the perimeter of the temple wall to depict several of our co-workers, and of course, one of them was me! How fun!

That's me in the upper right picture holding the light and the clipboard! I love this so much!
 Everybody had a great time finding themselves on and around the wall! He picked out features, hobbies, and distinctive characteristics of our co-workers and it was pretty easy to figure out who was who.
 He painstakingly wrapped and tied robes around each of the lego people inside the temple to look like the people of Israel!
I love that this layout is where our hobbies collide. Since I scrapbooked his lego creation, I think it's time for him to create a lego piece depicting one of my scrapbook layouts! :)

Two Page Scrapbook Layout - "Cake Smash"

This is proof that time really does fly. This boy is now 3 years old and here he is smashing his first cake when he was only one! He's now officially completed his terrible twos and running headfirst into his troublesome threes! I love this boy with all of my heart, though. He can be very sensitive, loving, and he's extremely polite!! :) It sure doesn't hurt these he's adorable either!

Anyway, back to the 1 year layout...

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

College Graduation - two page scrapbook layouts

It's been so very long since I posted! Thanks for hanging around long enough to see another post. Life has been good to me since April, and I hope it has been for you as well.

My "baby" graduated from Ball State University a few Decembers ago. Here are the layouts of this major achievement! What an exciting day!

I like the way they both turned out. I really can't pick a favorite...Can you?

 I'm a multi-photo layout kind of girl! I put a lot of work into all of them, and I can rarely tell the whole story in just one photo.

It's good to be back in the blogging saddle! Life has just been very busy lately, but very good!!

Two Page Scrapbook Layout - "Adorable"

Look at these two lovebirds! This is my youngest and his then girlfriend. Now, they are engaged and planning to tie the knot in October. I'm very proud of these two and happy they've found each other.

This layout is from Easter 2015.  It was a beautiful day for photos!
 I believe the title and bunnies are from Kate's ABC's. The little white cotton tail ball fringe was perfect for Easter.
 I'm a bit obsessed with the blue and green color combo! So fresh and springy!!
A little bit of Washi helped to Anchor it at the bottom. One of many more layouts to come with these two cuties! It's been fun to watch their relationship grow.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!!
