Tyler James. 

Every baby is a gift. 

This baby boy’s arrival was epic. 

His parents have waited for him for a long time, and now he is here, and so worth the wait.

Apparently he is not as impressed with me as I am with him.

Love this family. Ty is a huge blessing, but I think he is also a blessed baby boy. He is loved so much. 

His grandma kinda likes him too. She happens to be my home assistant and my dear friend. So close, she’s like a sister to me. So thrilled for her and the whole family.

Welcome Tyler James.

God bless.

I posted this image on FB saying that this is the kind of photo you really can’t put a price tag on. So much love.

God bless you and yours today!

When I shared a few peeks of what I made with The Underground kits from Studio Calico, I mentioned how busy this time of year is for me, but yet when I opened my SC box, I was instantly inspired and proceeded to crank out 5 layouts in very little time. 

Most importantly, I enjoyed it. 

Something that I want to mention because it’s on my mind right now….

print your new photos. 

I can’t tell you how much I’m inspired by fresh new photos. 

I do love revisiting older photos too…but there is something about a new image that stirs up recent memories. 

Here are my October projects:


gentle//the undergroundpiccadilly & labels

My mission recently is to take more photos of our older grandchildren. 

This shot of Grif, taken with my iPhone is my new favorite everyday shot of him. 

I had to make a layout to document his gentle giant qualities. 

I love simple layouts. 

Over the years of scrapbooking, the simple ones are always my favorites…and in my opinion are timeless.


you are loved (color)//the underground, piccadillynottinghill & labels

This girl. I love to photograph her, because she always has something that is uniquely hers when the camera comes out. 

Here’s the thing, I love this photo….but couldn’t decide whether I wanted to print it in color or black & white….so I printed it both ways and made layouts. 


you are loved (bw)//the underground, piccadillynottinghill & labels

Black & white version.


and the living is easy//the underground & labels

Again with the handcut letters. I can not stop! 

Love the look. 



so much joy//the underground & labels

Documenting my goofy, but lovable Scooter dog. Another simple one, with a granny chic vibe. Love that floral paper and vintage book page!

If you have never ordered a Studio Calico kit, I think you should give it a try! I am completely sold in the concept of kits…and with SC I have never been disappointed. That’s huge.
