still scrappin'~

I'm still scrappin'... I did a page of my Dear Hubby Slim and his brothers ~

The Donner Brothers
JD, Slim, Duke, Rod

Slim is the oldest of the four guys ~ they are all two years apart from each other.  The birth order is Perry (Slim) to Rod, Jeff (JD) and Tim (Duke).  Poor guys ~ they never experienced what it was like to grow up with a sister ... just boys in that family ... until I came along and became the wife and sister in law!! Life as they knew it was never the same after that. lol

I also did a page of our daughter Staci ~

Spread your wings and let the fairy within you fly!
Staci is such an outdoorsy person ... and when I saw this image on the internet of a fairy in the trunk of a tree I just had to try transposing her into it.  I just wish I could remember where I found this image and could give credit for it to whom it's due.  I think it worked great for my page.

Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.


  1. Oh several of those Donner boys could pass for my brothers... The big burly and bearded boys. Love it! You're pretty creative with those scrapbook pages! :)

  2. Well well, I just lost my first comment here in the hospital. I was saying before I was so rudely interrupted,

    Do I see JD as being bigger than Slim? Wow.
    and I know thou art tough, and you can keep Slim in line (Even though the way is devious), you didn't have to mess the playground up for all the Donner boys. hahahahahahha

    What do you use to play with photos? Staci being outdoorsie doesn't surprise me one bit.

    Love you girl and try to be good!
    Sending Love from over in YPSI

  3. Love your blog look and that is cute with your daughter in the picture of nature. Have a great week!

  4. Ha Mel---I'm sure you had those four brothers all lined up with a 'new' sis in charge!!!!! Great page... AND--I love Staci's page also...

    You are great!!!

  5. I'm sure you were well capable of keeping those boys in line! Ha! Neat how you were able to do Staci's page.

  6. Very nice picture of the boys...but, how, ever, did you get them all to co-operate...nice.
    And I love, Love, LOVE the Staci page. I saw her today, and she sure is hanging in there. She moves just like me with that pinched neck.
    Love that picture. Did I say, I love that picture? So very Staci.

  7. Love the photos you created...4 sons...boy their Mom had her hands full...*smile*

  8. Those fellows look none the worse for wear having the feminine touch in their lives. Would love to see a before "you" picture.
    Loved the fairy in the tree.

  9. Great pic of 'the Donner Party' and I must say I L-O-V-E the woodland fairy! Like you; I just love digital scrapping!
    'love & hugs from afar'
