Wow, where has the time gone!?! We finally moved to southern Illinois in October has taken us two years to do it...we have lived in some type of disarray, on top of and/or out of boxes since October 2009. My poor husband painstakingly emptied the four storage units, has been building storage space for his workshop like crazy. It took nine months for the house up north to sell (closed in April yay us), and we are at long last getting settled in to the new (much smaller!) house. The scrapbook room is coming along and I am determined to be finished and working again by June 1st. We'll see how that goes!!! haha

Veranda WOTG Layouts and Cards

Well, I've been naughty about updating again! Too many places to add pictures, am going to have to streamline it somehow. Regardless, I'll try to get caught up here...I have been scrapbooking and cardmaking here and there. I'm anal about adding them here until all the layouts and cards are done so that they stay together, that's my story and I'm sticking to it! I also detest trying to add photos here, for some reason they never format the way I want to, grrrrrrr

Here we are with the Veranda Workshop On The Go from the Spring 2010 and created four layouts and six cards. I had completed the first layout a while back but now finished up with the other layout and all the cards. I still have paper left. I really love this paper!

Layout with My Pages Talk Voice Recorder

This was the first chance I've had to use the My Pages Talk Voice Recorder from CTMH. Wow! I absolutely love it. On this layout, I covered it with some patterened paper (from Back Country). I recorded my husband playing harmonica. How special it is to hear him play while looking at the layout! I rarely do a one-page but this was made to be in the front of my husband's photo album.
