I haven't posted on here in a long, long time. We moved in June to a new city in Alaska. It is my hometown and I love it! I am glad we moved here! The winter here has been fairly mild compared to what we were used to in our last town. I have been really busy with our new life in the bigger city. The girls have adjusted fairly well to going to public school for the first time. Our youngest daughter recently made honor roll and they are making new friends. I have been taking college classes, it is something I really wanted to do again. I got an A in my last class which was an English class and I am now taking an Art class which I really enjoy. I will have to post more pictures next time. We went to Hawaii in December for Christmas vacation. It was our first trip there but it will not be our last. It was Kaylee, Isabella and my first Christmas out of Alaska. The weather was nice but I do love Alaska better. I will post back soon with more recent news and some new arty creations soon. Aloha!

This is my newest layout. I made it for the Color Room Challenge this week. The colors were blues with white. I love blue! I used some acrylic paints and gesso and a dark Sapphire blue Tattered Angels glimmer mist for the background. The picture is taken from the beach where I live in Alaska. I have lived in Alaska all my life and I still think it is beautiful. I have been to a lot of other places but none can top Alaska for beauty.Here is a close up of the details. I love the texture in the grungeboard letters from the gesso and paint and a bit of modeling paste. Thanks for looking! P.S. This is one of the featured layouts this week at The Color Room! Too neat!

Back again with another older layout. The pictures are from last winter. We got a lot of snow where I live and my husband made the girls a snow fort out of the pile of plowed snow. They loved pretending they were in an igloo. I made the layout last year with an old kit. We have snow coming down right now. I thought it was Spring already!:)

Hello again! Here is another older layout. My mom gave me some slides a few years ago. I had them made into pictures and this was one of them. My middle sister and I were on the ferry going somewhere in Alaska. I am the oldest of three girls. We are still pretty close but I miss the days of being young girls sometimes.

Here is another older layout. I love this picture! I was a thumb sucker when I was a baby and my youngest was one too. It was hard to break her of the habit as she got older and part of me wanted her to still be my little thumb sucker but I am glad she quit for her teeth's sake.

A new day and an old layout!:D It is another sunny day in my part of Alaska. I can see the ground in some places and I am excited to start my walking outside again instead of inside on the eliptical. The layout above was made a few years ago. It features Isabella and I used her favorite color, pink. My mom bought the cookie monter outfit for Kaylee and I passed it on to Bella. I thought it was cute! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are enjoying the day.

Day three of the old layouts. The picture is of my oldest daughter, Kaylee when she was just 2 months old. I really like the colors on this layout. I made this about three years ago. The hardest thing for me to finish is the journaling. I have a lot of layouts where the journaling has yet to be done. Maybe some day I will finish it. Another sunny day in my part of Alaska! Thanks for looking!
