Cookie Monster

Not feeling too well. Not well enough to get out and about but enough energy to play around with MDS.  I used the Downtown Grunge Designer Series Paper and coordinating embellishments for the theme.  I created the Cookie Monster embellishments with punches.  A fun project for a cute photo.  I can say it's cute because I (Grandma) didn't have to clean up the mess.

Last but not least, Jayne & Mary


This is my page.  I opted not to use any of the Island Oasis designer series paper because my top was pretty busy by itself.  I do love using the eyelet border punch, half pearls and ribbon for embellishments so that's what I did.


This is my daugher Mary who is the mother three precious little boys.  They are smart, handsome and congenial.  I am so richly blessed to have them in my life.

This is the last of the 26 pages of our scrapbook for Jenna.  All of the embellishments were hand-made using Stampin' UP! Sizzix dies or punches.  We did a lot of layering to create color without taking away from our focal photo.  The Digital Design Studio came in handy when we had multiple photos on a given page.  

My next big project will be the Family Cookbook.  Any ideas?

Generations Above


This is my Aunt Ruth who is the last living sibling of my mom's generation.  She lives in Branson, MO.


This page is dedicated to my Grandma, Mom and Aunt Polly who were the best of our family.  They were our role-models in every sense.  A real tear-jerker to everyone who sees this book.  If they were still with us, they would be bawling their eyes out too at how awesome our family is today.

Susan & Her Girls


Susan is my first cousin and Chuck's sister.  Her last visit to St. Louis was also about 25 years ago.  We also keep in touch with on Facebook.   She is one busy lady with 5 kids and 2 grandchildren. She takes the best pictures so we get to see a lot of what's going on in her life.  I really, really enjoy family pictures.

Want to know a secret?  All these years our family in St. Louis has called Susan "Susie." 


Susan's girls are beauties aren't they? 

Note:  These pages were created using Stampin' UPs My Design Studio digital software.  I'm getting better at it everytime I use it.

Sharon & Morgan


Sharon is a lovely lady that our family just adores.  She recently came to St. Louis on business and all of the first cousins here in St.Louis met her at Union Station for dinner.  I treasure anytime our family gets together. 


Morgan is Mick & Sharon's daughter who is going to be a beautiful young lady some day.

Debi & Ashley


Debi is my first cousin Chuck's wife. The last time Chuck and his family were in St. Louis for a visit was about 25 years ago.  Through Facebook, we get to keep in touch so I feel like I see her all the time.


Ashley is Chuck and Debi's daughter.  I notice in this picture that she has her hand on a Vitamix which gives us something in common.  Love those fruit smoothies–yum!!!.
