Washington, DC

I made this LO for Scrappin-n-Chattin's Torn Paper Challenge. I torn the edges of the red/gray background paper. I attended March For Life January 22, 2002 when I was a student at Mid-Atlantic Christian University (Roanoke Bible College). I took my camera along and took pics like a typical tourist! I have hidden the journaling under the diagonal paper on the right in the middle.  I'm not sure what the building in the middle is. If anyone knows and comments that would be great! I don't have a prize, but looked online and couldn't find it anywhere! I believe the top picture is the Paul Revere Memorial, but I may be wrong. The bottom picture is of the US Capitol in the background. I chose the "dare to be different" tag since I attended the walk to stand against abortion. The journaling states basically what I have already said about the walk and what I know about the pictures. I have one more pic that I took that day so I may do another LO of just that pic soon. TFL and have a good weekend!

Bear Town Bears & My New Glasses

 I made this LO for Scrappin-n-Chattin's Home Town Challenge. We had to include something our home town is known for on our LO. The journaling states that "these are 3 of the 50 bears that Bern Town Bears has placed around New Bern. The bear is New Bern's symbol. Paw prints like the ones on this paper is how they are spotted around town." The bears are from top to bottom: Diverse Flag Bearer, Bearon de Graffenried, and River Ben. Baron de Graffenried is the founder of Historic New Bern & that's who the middle bear is named after.
I finally got my glasses yesterday, July 12! I have posted this pic on Facebook, but am not sure if all my followers are on there. I had to go in there to get them. They couldn't find them at first. They were in a different spot and hadn't been processed yet. I'm just glad I have them and can see again!

Balloon LO

I made this LO (layout) for Scrappin-n-Chattin's Balloon Challenge. The challenge was to include either balloons in your pic or balloons as an embellishment. I did both! The pictures are pretty much self-explanatory. They are all pictures of Tyler's 1st birthday party. He's in the bottom right corner playing with some toys.
I've been going without my glasses for almost 2 weeks now and wanted to scrap. I lost a screw in my glasses June 26 and have gone without them since. I went to the eye doctor June 29. I hope they call me tomorrow to let me know my glasses are in! They told me that they would take 7-10 business days. I didn't realize how much I rely on my glasses until now! I'm nearsighted so even the screen is blurry to me unless I sit almost on top of it. TFL!
