Little Boys are so much fun and I love to scrapbook pages for them. Walker is my nephew and he is very loving and dependent on his sister. He becomes just a little shy when you start takng his photo. He has 3 older sisters and this is what he told me. He loves, trucks, motorcycles, tractors and lipstick. TFL

This is a small altered box, with photos of a wedding that my daughter was in. Really fun and intimate wedding, bride and groom paid for thewedding, and did not hire a photographer. My Daughter found out they were doing their own photos and ask me to go to the wedding and take pictures. They wanted alot of fun photos, she actually told me that it was the most fun she had had up unitl that point. They finally got to let loose and create funny poses. TFL

1. weird- I ate lime with salt and tomatoes with salt when I was pregnant with my daughter. Oddly enough I met my neighbor( she also was pregnant and had 2 sons), we lived in the Redlands in Miami and were walking over to the tomato fields and lime groves ( right by our house) to get the tomatoes and limes. We both had girls 2 months apart.
2.I started making porcelain dolls and progressed to reproduction antique dolls.

This is Damian my youngest son with his new puppy Bogey. I especially like the bottom photo with the smirk on his face. It reminds me of him when he was a little by. He could never lie to me about anything, because when he told a story, he would get this little shy smirk on his face. I would tell him haven't you learned that I can read you like a book.
Not enough time
I have to admit, I have been following the One little Word Blog for almost a year and have never posted. I love your blog and the fact that the work submitted is so varied and creative, so I guess it is time to get started.I have had an idea in my head for a couple of weeks involving photos that I had of my mom ( now and then), so the challenge of time was perfect. I just saw your post on Tuesday night, so time was very limited. I worked on this last night late, since I had a headache and could not sleep. When I got up his morning it was raining very hard, tornado warnings all over town. I actually lost power for a while, and it is still raining. Local news is that the tornado hit an are of my town and several blocks are closed off. I have heard that no one was injured . Great News!!
Have my photos for the challenge, had to take them on the back porch, but still had to use the flash. There is a little glare on the layout but... the challenge was accepted and I had to deliver.
My layout out is called:
Not Enough Time...
Time flies when you are you and there is not enough time when you are older.
The hidden journal says:
My mother has been sick and she was in the hospital about 2 weeks ago. She was adamant that she was not going to the hospital even though her doctor told her to go. My sister was visiting for the week and she did not want to miss the time she could spend with her. After much prodding she was angry about it but finally went to the hospital, and was admitted. I am sure she felt she was wasting precious time with my sister and the family, she actually told us " I hope you all are happy."
At this point we no know that there is not enough time.
I am greedy, I want her here for more time. More time for I love you, kisses, hugs.
A couple of days after she got out of the hospital , her 12th grandchild was born. This time the baby was born a month early, it was my brother's 6th child.
Right now we all value any time with each other.
I look at these photos and see how much time has changed for my mother, I see her hands with arthritis,I know the pain she endures and I still want more time and she does too. I love you mom- Gayle
Scrapbook page was completed using the New K and Company paper, I love the vibrant colors. We have a group that meets monthly and we challenge every one to try a different technique or product. The techniques is demonstrated and you have one month to work on a project incorporating the item or skill that you were shown. This particular month we had to hand or machine sew on our project. I also created alot of dimension on this page, I really like this process on my pages right now. I even use it on my hybrid layouts.

I love my camera, it helps me take great photos. Thank goodness for digital photos I can delete the evidence that indicates anything else. Look at the detail on the stems of this poppy. I received a Nikon D70 as an anniversary gift in 2004, and I take it with me every where I go. Photography allows you to focus on one moment in time.
