Black & Cream layout with CTMH color added

I received two pieces of black and cream paper from my friend Kimberly, there were some patterns on these sheets she didn't think she would use. Well I started coloring with my sweet leaf and cranberry CTMH markers and the pages took on a new look. These were fun pages to create using odds and ends of things I had in my "unused" pile. Do you have a pile or drawer or box of things you can't throw away? Just wanted to share my pages...the pictures are of Don and I, and then Shane and Jennifer with me when they first starting dating a couple of years ago.I also added some chipboard letters, doilies and buttons and ribbon from my stash. Who knew this all started with two pieces of paper someone else gave me. There were no markings on the paper, does anyone recognizize this design?

The second double layout was paper I found in my large stash of paper that I "collect". The layout is from this past Christmas, Jennifer made me a scrapbook of her and Shane and their life together. There are pictures from when they were both little and some of their favorite things.If you can see in the picture I am crying, I am a very emotional person, this is one of the nicest gifts I have received and was so touched that my future daughter-in-law would take the time to make it for me. Don likes to tease me that if there were a fire in our house I would go back for two things
1. my cat Pippie
2. this album!


  1. your pages are beautiful, as always. Blogger's taking forever. I'll be glad when we have my good ol' cable internet again instead of my husbands cellular internet card! lol It's worse than dial up almost!

  2. Thanks ladies... I appreciate the nice comments. I was a little nervous about putting up these layouts.

  3. Really, really nice SB pages! Now if only I could get my family to quit being so goofy I could get pretty pages too lOl!
