Modern Day Warrior

I honor the many brave men and women of the armed forces who put themselves in harm's way for the sake of freedom. I am very proud that my nephew is one of them. He is currently in Afghanistan, and took the background photo I used in this layout.

One Third of the World!

I get a big kick out of keeping track of all the different countries from which I have received hits. Currently, that number is 69 of the approximately 203 countries in the world, which calculates to 34% or

one third of the countries in the WORLD!!!!

For a small scrapbooking blog with only about 12,000 total hits, that is pretty amazing to me.

Thank you for representing one of those countries. You have blessed me by stopping by.

Seeing Double Twice!

Steven sat gazing at the baby in the mirror, rocking back and forth with a big grin on his face. It was so fun to watch!

This is one of my favorite photos, so it was one of the first that I scrapbooked. I wanted to do an updated version. Which page do you like better, the first one here or this one?

A Tribute to Bill

I made this layout as a tribute to my brother-in-law, Bill, who passed away last month from brain cancer. He was a special person. I am glad he is in heaven with Jesus, free from pain, but we miss him here on earth.
