Finally finished Mom's calendar for 2011

I hadn't been back to work on the calendar for a while, but I was able to complete the designs with some layouts I had already completed.  Not sure what I have shown you, so here are a few of the pages I did for this calendar:

I created a card for BJ

My nephew Bryan will be 38 on Sunday, and he is a new daddy this year!!!  I made him a birthday card (actually a 12 x 12 scrapbook page) which I will post on my Facebook page a little closer to time for his birthday!  I used Mad Genius Designs "Mister" which I bought last weekend at the iNDSD sale!

The photo was taken by poki on July 9 at Great Grandma's house.  Gaby was just 15 days old!

Another Forum - Ginger Scraps

One of my favorite kits that I have collected is called Beach Glass by Ginger Scraps.  I was looking at old links and discovered I still had a link to the Ginger Scraps Forum, although I hadn't been there in a long time.
I discovered that there had been a re-work done of Beach Glass, so I had to have it.  Then I started exploring the Forum, found the challenges ... and I'm hooked on another forum.  All these challenges are a great learning experience ... I'm really stretching myself. 

Paper to Digi Scraplift:  Here is the sample

And my version:

Of all the lighthouses I have visited, none rival Cape Hatteras for beauty - truly the Jewel of the Outer Banks!
