Our annual trek to Kent Falls!

Once a year in the fall we take a drive up to Kent Falls which is about an hour from here. The weather was perfect today!! Last year we froze lol

Here are a few pictures I took with Instagram~





It was a bit of a bummer not to see a ton of color like we hoped. We seem to be too early or late each year lol. One of these years we will get it right! I did take several pictures with my camera and hope to scrap them soon.

Time for me to go watch my Red Sox in Game 1 of the ALCS!!!!! So excited!! Go Sox!!

Scrap Your Story Challenge #5



This week’s challenge at Scrap Your Story is to use CORK on your layout!  Click HERE to enter your page and check out the DT pages!


I have had some cork sitting in my craft drawer for years now, so glad to have the push to use it!  Originally I wanted to die cut some flowers but then I decided to scrap these old pictures from a trip up north to visit Mike’s cousins.  I used a border die to cut the cork in my Cuttlebug.  It’s really thin and I ended up breaking one border.  Had I realized it was so thin I probably could have used it in my Cricut.  Maybe I will have to try that with some of the other sheets that I have left.




I didn’t add any journaling yet since I need to look up the dates that we were visiting.  I still have plenty more to scrap from this trip too…although I realized when looking at these vibrant pictures that some were rather dull in color. I think I can take a pass on scrapping those.



Front Row Seats…SYS Challenge #2!



So happy the weekend is almost here!  Scrap Your Story’s Challenge #1 was a success, let’s see lots of entries again this week!  Our challenge is to create a page with the theme of ANIMALS – whether it be your photos, papers, embellishments, you get the idea!  Link up your page HERE!  You can see the DT pages at the site or via the DT links on the SYS tab at the top of my blog.


I chose to scrap pictures from our safari in December at the Animal Kingdom.  It was SO COOL to be in the front row.  Mike and I had the chance to see the animals up close and take some awesome pictures!!  We really lucked out!!

No plans set in stone for this weekend…hoping I’ll get a chance to create!  I know I say that every week but I really think it will happen this weekend!!


Thanks for visiting!

Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter

My husband and I are packing to go home from a most wonderful vacation at the Happiest Place on Earth. I don’t want our time to end so I am typing this post instead of packing.

After breakfast at our resort’s food court, we took a leisurely stroll so I can take just a few more pictures (because the 4,000 we have already wasn’t enough lol)










I plan to recap our trip more in depth soon. I need to figure out how I’d like to break it down (by day, park, dining, etc.) Expect to see a lot more posts once I figure it out…and sort through all the pics!
