happy...


This layout is chock full of Studio Calico....


About half the paper is from the Studio Calico May 2012 kit, 35mm, and the other half is from the Studio Calico HeyDay 6x6...available at Paper Issues!  

Remember to use Amy12 for Paper Issues purchases for 20% off your order!!!

I adore the grey, aqua and orange combo....

Check out the close up of my momma's pic from circa late 1950's:


The cardigan...the skirt...the shoes....sigh...so very sweet:)

The picture was taken in front of the Seattle Asian Art Museum.  

I know...I know...there isn't any journaling.  I need to interview her about this pic and I will add the journaling later...I may tweek it a bit too...I think it needs some paint spatters:)

I've been on a mini vaca...

Darin and I managed to get away for a couple days.  We took the Clipper up to Victoria....Canada, my homeland:)  We had a ton of fun and managed to walk alot...averaging over 15,000 steps per day {that's a ton for my short legs!!}....

  9. Love that pic of your sweet mom!! I don't journal on every page, either. Over 15k steps a day-that's good exercise! I need to put my pedometer back on, I haven't worn it all summer.
