Falling for You

Thankful Heart

I love Autumn!  The colors, the weather, the smells in the air, the crisp fell of the mornings and the chill at night. Perfect for a campfire!
 I know all you Granny's, Maw Maw's, Nana's or whatever your grandkids call you, 
just love spending time with them.  They are the perfect decorations to your life. 
I am a Nana and my grandkids have taught  me so much. Everyday I count my blessings
 that they are in my life.  They grow so fast, so enjoy them every time you get the chance.
We usually do lots of outdoor things in the Fall. Pumpkin patch, corn maze, football, hikes and cookouts. 
I made these pages with the "Falling for You" paper collection (one of my favorite).  Lots of Cricut cuts on my page. Used the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge for most of the cuts. Added some brown splatters, enamel dots, CTMH accessories and added my journaling on a leaf.  
Don't forget to count your blessing everyday, spend time with the people you love, 
learn something new from your grandkids, (maybe how to take a selfie)

Mal Child

My youngest granddaughter at 13.... teenage years coming up.  Mallory is such a beautiful child full of energy and mostly happy (for now).  Her sister gave her the nickname Mal Child . Just had to do this page to share her "sassy" picture. Selfie...selfie....and more selfies!

I wanted to try some mixed media for the backgound. I used CTMH white daisy card stock, added some white gesso and then used the package technique with CTMH inks. Just smooched them on.  added some black splatters and all done with the background, l Love how it turned out.
Added some "scrap papers" from my stash, some doilies, CTMH complements, and accessories, a little stamping and it's all done.

Can't wait to see how this lovely lady will grow and changes over the next few years!

Redneck Gardening

My Garden

At our new house, we have so many wild critters that we can't have a garden.  So I garden in pots, stumps and hanging baskets in trees. Our watering routine included loading water jugs on the back of my husbands truck. (of course Loki had to Help)  My hubby would backup under the pots and I would water the plants.  We called it the redneck garden!  Of course I had to scrap it, sure the grandkids will get a laugh out of this long after we are gone.
All products are CTMH except the title stickers. Lots of fussy cutting the flowers,
 some stamps, some gesso and some distressing, gold splatters and enamel dots.
I also added some butterflies and a bird from my stash. I loved making this page 
and telling my story.  
I really enjoyed my cucumbers and tomatoes. The flowers in the stump were beautiful buy the end of the season.  Tell us, in comments below if you have a garden and what is your favorite thing
to eat from your garden.

How Happy are You

My youngest granddaughter is happy most of the time. She had been trying to get this kick/jump of clicking her heals just right.  This day we were just hanging out and I was luck enough to capture this picture.  Wish  I had got the picture of the expression on her face when she finally did it!
So of course I had to make this page.  Used some old Close to my Heart supplies and my cricut to cut out the clouds.  Just added some embellishments  and our memories of that day are preserved for her grandchildren.  I love telling everyday stories, they are what make up our lives.
