The hubs and I are going to WDW again this fall with friends, so I decided that I better scrap more of my thousands of photos from past trips before I come home with a thousand more!
So lets get to it!
A PERFECT DAY
This photo was taken by my dear friend, Susan Stringfellow, in 2007 when we were in SoCal for the Craft and Hobby Association annual conference and trade show. We took a day and went to Disneyland and California Adventure. SOOOOO much fun!!!
For this page, I used buttons from Dear Lizzy and Basic Grey. Wood stars are from Studio Calico; background paper is Basic Grey and Lily Bee; other papers are Crate Paper and Echo Park; embellies are Basic Grey, Freckled Fawn, and more Echo Park.
I LOVE combining different manufacturers' products like I have here!
To me, that is where the challenge comes in. Each manufacturer has products that always match and are designed to just go together. Trust me, after being on just about every kind of design team out there, matchy match products can get a little boring.
I love the challenge of combining product in new ways and styles.
So I feel that I need to share the reasons why I have been MIA for so long.
Let me explain:
Due to health issues, (I was diagnosed with advanced stage Hashimoto's Disease) I stepped away from the scrapping and blogging world and tried to focus on my health and family.
It was also Ashley's senior year, which meant she was crazy busy, and knowing she was leaving for college this fall, I wanted to spend as much time with her as possible.
THEN, when I was feeling a bit better this past spring, the blog experienced some major "technical difficulties". It took about a dozen phone convos and lengthy e-mails with the Typepad support team to get all the kinks worked out.
Thanks goodness everything is back to normal and the blog is up and running once again.
I truly do appreciate those who checked up on me during my months away from the blog. Your love and concern truly touched me. Your friendship and support over the years is truly the reason why I am back and better than ever!
