Feeling Silly

I am feeling a little silly because I made this layout several days ago and totally forgot to post it (anywhere!). LOL It is a scraplift that I did for Stacy R's Monthly Challenges at Sketches4you.

It was a nice little break from Fall/Back to School/Halloween. That is all I have been scrapping for the last few weeks.

Stacy's original layout is really pretty and so summery (don't you think?) My subject matter is a little different.

It is about a time my two oldest boys, my goddaughter and I were stranded during a snow storm in a tiny smoking room at Motel 6 in Santa Rosa, NM for 4 days with 2 of us sick and 4 dogs (one of which would NOT go to the bathroom #2 - and didn't for 4 days!) (TMI - I know! lol) We only had snack food and water although this little town is used to snow storms and keeps its Main street plowed so we did try to get out to eat once a day. The highways around us were all closed. Miserable!

I used paper from My Minds Eye Glitter book Signature Christmas. (all of that paper is beautiful!) And a gorgeous flower strip from Bo Bunny. It is so yummy I could just eat it up!! lol Ribbon from my stash, crystal Stickles, random snow flakes from my stash.
I also made this next layout for the Sketch A Thon at Sketches4you (link on the sidebar). It is for challenge #13. I really liked this sketch a lot. It was such a fun layout to make. I used some old Halloween pictures of my youngest son. He is wearing his older brothers Halloween costume. My older son never got to wear it because he was too sick on his first Halloween to bother dressing him up. Anyway, I think Riley looks adorable in these pictures (if I do say so myself! lol).
We met with Realtors yesterday to try to decide which to work with and to get this house selling started! Wish us luck!!


  1. oh wow these are just wonderful layouts hun,the pictures are so super cute hugs cheryl xxx

  2. Seeing these pictures of Riley sure bring back memories....He was such a sick little boy when you got him. And also so sweet. I have not seen these pictures so it made me smile.
    Is that LIvvy that is asleep? Where was she?

  3. The layout on the bottom is not mine...it is the layout that I had to copy, made by Stacy R. who puts out the challenge each month.

  4. Wish I had found you sooner. Loving your LOs.

  5. Awwwww what a cute little guy you have there! I love the Halloween layout and the stranded one....and don't those dogs look totally fed up and bored! I have never made a scrapbook page in my life and would not know where to start but you obviously have this down to a fine art as your work is amazing.
