This layout is a picture of Olivia under a hosta. If any of you are hosta lovers out there you will know what I am talking about when I talk about “Big Daddy” A large blue hosta that takes forever to establish and is a bit fussy, Ok a lot fussy.  I have moved it multiple times through out the years and it finally found its home.


This is a panorama picture of the “house garden”, one of many gardens. “Big Daddy” is the huge blue in the middle.

Suzie had come up to take some pictures of the kids and this is one of my favorite pictures she took.

Beautiful 12x12

This layout was done for the Flying Unicorn’s Riddersholm’s Challenge this month. I used “Blossom” from the Vintage Venture collection. Needless to say that wasn’t the one I started with. I had so much stuff on the first one that you couldn’t tell what kind of paper it was or if it was even paper. I like this one better.

There were some faint flowers sprays on the paper that were fairly the same color so I went with that concept on my spray.

BEautiful left side

Added some Chippies from Creative Embellishment and some of the Adornments from the store. Which I think I am addicted to.

Beautiful word

 I stenciled the word “Beautiful” and Painted it. I ended up finding a better color after the fact. It’s amazing how that works out. So I went over it again. Much Better

I hope you enjoy the layout and have a great day!!! Thank you for stopping.
