OUAS January 2014

I am back again this afternoon to share with you my layout made with the theme and sketch for this month at Once Upon A Sketch (OUAS).  I channeled my inner Jo (The Madcook) and used lots of green on my layout.

My journaling reads:
"Another One Bites the Dust
I have learnt-
Small plants need a lot of tender loving care and regular Watering."

And this is the OUAS Sketch for this month:

Catching-up on some projects I forgot to share

It's bad when you forget to share projects you have created, but I'm not that forgetful considering I am over 73 and pretty active.  So here a quite a few projects that just didn't make it to my blog last year (or maybe some did and in that case here they are again).

Scrapbook Fantasies - Weekly Scrapbook Challenge #1/2014

Today I am sharing with you all my interpretation of the first Weekly Challenge for 2014 at the Scrapbook Fantasies Blog.  I just found out that this will be the 8th year of these challenges, and yes I have participated in nearly all of the previous 364 challenges - that is a lot.

This is my layout that has a number in the title:

My layout is about my wonderful son in-law - who is actually more like my guardian angel.  The journaling reads:
"I could search the world and space and never find a friend so helpful as you.  Every person should have a Quentin in their lives - thank you for coming into mine.  I have to be your number 1 fan."

Prima BAP - February 2013

My daughter was cleaning out her computer files and found this page image that hadn't appeared on my blog yet, I don't understand what she was talking about so here it is.  This was my take on the February Prima Build-a-Page Sketch, which was featured on the Prima Blog.

The Color Room #165

I wanted to share a layout I created using the Color Palette #165 from the Color Room.  I did this layout because I loved the colour scheme and I had the perfect photograph.  My photograph is of Pudding/Maddy the cat who has adopted my daughter and her family.  I recently had the pleasure of looking after Maddy whilst the family were away and she is an absolute pleasure to spend time with.  I will also admit that I spoilt her with special food, and lots of attention - she knows just how to get what she wants from you with her love and affection.
