Je t'aime beaucoup

I just have to say I am seriously loving the Graphic 45 Curtain Call line. It has been out since last year but par for the course, I have just found my stash. But of course I needed more. Lots of fussy cutting needs to be done with this paper. Hidden gems if you really look.

This is an old photo of Housni & I from 2006 but I figure it went with the paper. I had to combine 2 of my loves & while it may be too busy, I like it a lot.
I called it Je t'aime boucoup...I Love You very much...

I hope you like it as much as I do. only have one life.

Yes Virginia, There Really Is a National Scrapbooking Day

Yup, really. If there are Nat'l Star Wars, Girl Scout, Pig name it, then why not a Scrapbooking day. I thought people scoffed at the fact that there were actual conventions. But when I mentioned NSD oh boy, they had a field day.

Well, I did not let anything deter me. I did 2 layouts yesterday in honor of NSD. Both in honor of very special people.

The first was a sketch challenge on BASF. I am sorry to say I do not know who did the sketch.
It is my Mom. The challenge was not only the sketch, but to make it into Mothers Day. Mine is in honor of my Mommy who is only in my heart now. The paper is my new obsession by My Mind's Eye "Sunshine". The photo was taken in Gloucester in 2001 when my Mom came to Boston for my 40th birthday. We were walking along & there was this boat named she sat in front of it & said "Take my picture in front of this boat". Her name is Beverly. She loved it.

This LO is a photo taken in 1961. I am being loved by my Grandmother Doughty, my Mom's Mother, I wish I remembered her. Another done with the MME Sunshine line. Who knew I would like yellow? LOL

I started on a couple of other things but did not finish.

So remember, the first Saturday in May next year...I will.

Celebrate Something....One Life.
