I had the opportunity to attend a U2 concert about a year and a half ago. The company I work for gave me 2 free tickets, so I couldn’t refuse them! It was on a Friday before a holiday weekend, perfect for an outdoors concert. We drove about 4 hrs to get to the stadium. WELL worth it!! Muse opened the concert and played about 45 minutes. They were great! U2 came on after a short intermission and really rocked the house! They played a long set list of new and old music. What a show!!

Last year was a great year for lots of ice in Western Massachusetts according to my Aunt. She loved sending pictures from outside her window and around her house. This was one such incident that caused a major crippling for moving around the town and for going to work. I think she even lost power for a short time with the ice build-up on the power lines.

If there was a question on why I moved to Florida, take a gander at the pictures and put it together. 🙂

Using digital stamps is quite easy to use for scrapbook pages as well as cards. For the layout below, I printed the images on white paper and colored them with Copic markers. I then trimmed them out so that they were more of an embellishment for the page rather than a main focus. If you’ve ever heard of a “hybrid” project, this can be considered one as it combines both traditional scrapbooking with digital elements.

Today’s project also works for The Stamping Boutique’s Digi Day challenge on Scrapbook News & Review! The super cute Bride Audrey digital stamp coupled with AJ Wedding meets the “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue” challenge. The “old” item is the paper that I’ve had for years, the “new” item is the sheer butterfly embellishment, the “borrowed” item was the Sizzix alpha to cut the letters with, and the “blue” items are the sheer flowers.

Join in on the fun at SNR with TSB!

DB took a trip a couple years ago to attend his high school reunion. While there, he was able to drive around his old stomping grounds on the coast of Maine with his Mom and Sister. He got some beautiful shots of the scenery around Acadia National Park. Enjoy!

I’m doing some catching up on my scrapbook pages, so here’s one from early 2010.

This layout follows a Becky Fleck sketch and contest over at PageMaps. Thanks for the challenge Becky!

Debby Schuh made a visit to the local scrapbook store a couple years ago and I took a cute class of hers. We did some mixed media work to create a mini album using mostly Cosmo Cricket products. It turned out super cute! I’m holding the album in the picture. I have no idea why I had my head like that, but oh well!
