Sweet Home Alabama

Hey yall! How is it goin'? Good I hope. Well, the hubby and I drove down to Bama this past Saturday and I have been busy busy!!! The 13 hour drive was not too bad. Actually, it was probably the easiest so far. It feels so good to be home!!!!!!!! I am enjoying spending time with both of our families. Me and Mom have been scrappin' up a storm!! LOL. I wanted to share all that we had finished. Mom does not have a blog of her own, but we are going to make her one while I am at home visiting. So for now, I will share her beautiful creations along with mine.

First, my mom's (Carol) layouts. This one is called '2 Hearts That Beat As 1.' These are pix of her and my Dadddy when they were tiny tots. Mom completed this challenge for our crop over at Just Scrappin'.

"One Happy Child"
Look at that chunky face!!! That top photo cracks me up each time I look at it! ROFL!! Mom did this one for the weekend crop at Treasured Scrapbooking.

I love her use of Storybook on this one. That owl is too cute! One of my faves. I can't remember what challenge she did this one for, but is sure turned out cute!

Yall, my nephew is such a hoot. One day, he decided to take my mom's velcro hair rollers, put them together, and make a telescope! This picture cracks me up as well! Mom did this layout for Cherrie's challenge over at Just Scrappin'. She made the star herself. I wish yall could see it in person. It has so much dimension and is so cool.

"Baby Blues"
Mom and I both did a layout like this. It is for a 'picture repetition' challenge over at Treasured scrapbooking. This was the first time either of us have done this and I love it! I will definitely do this one again. The flowers are cutwork and she also incorporated some circle glass tiles.

Me and Mom also both did a layout like this next one. It is one of my own sketches. Whoo hoo! But we each changed it up a bit. I just adore the way she did her butterfly.

Ok, and here are my layouts. This first one was for a challenge over at Treasured Scrapbooking. This one was pokin' fun at my Daddy. I call it "Manboobs." LOL. He really doesn't have them, but we always like to pick on him when he is laying by the pool. I was trying to mimic the 'Hooters' sign with my title. I also incorporated some really cute, goofy looking owls. Yall know I love owls!

Aren't these owls too darn cute???!!!!

"Dig In"
I did this layout for the one hour sketch challenge Saturday night at Just Scrappin'.

Look at him! What on earth was he thinking??? LOL
"Love Bug"
Here is my layout for the 'picture repetition' challenge. This has got to be one of my fave pix of Carter. I will be scrapping it again. LOL
We each got 2 of the pix printed in sepia and then one in color. Yall gotta try this technique! Too fun!
"Cheek To Cheek"
Last, this layout is for a challenge on Treasured Scrapbooking. You had to choose from a list of Ella Fitzgerald's song titles. I chose 'Cheek to Cheek.' Whenever Carter is out playing, especially on a warm day, his little cheeks get so red. This layout is not a fave of mine, but I guess it gets another one done. LOL.

I told you we were busy! Ha ha. We had such a ball. I will be staying here for about a month. We already have a crop planned for all day Friday! I can't wait!
Also, I would like to say Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband, Brandon! He is 28 years old today! Happy Birthday Baby! I love you and hope your day is filled with joy!!!
As always, thanks for stopping by. Take care of yourselves and enjoy the rest of your day
Pin It!
