Fast Friends

Posted in 2 page Layouts, Basic Grey, Our Dogs! at 11:45 am by Michelle

I’ve been cleaning up some of my scraps and came across this patterned paper which was all left overs from the Basic Grey POTM. The layout was inspired from a website I recently came across called “Sketch Support by Scrapbook Generation Publication“.

A number of months ago we decided that Cassie needed a playmate as the boys are just too old and don’t want to play anymore… So we decided to get another Golden!

These pictures were all taken the evening we brought Mia home – March 1st, 2011! As you can see Cassie & Mia became “Fast Friends” (hence the name of the layout!). Cassie even let Mia play with one of her toys – something the boys sure wouldn’t get away with doing!! We sure are glad that they get along so well!

Till next time… Happy Scrapping!! 🙂

Golden Gate Bridge

Posted in 2 page Layouts, Family at 11:13 am by Michelle

One thing you will notice about the way I scrapbook, is that I don’t do it in any sort of order… I don’t do it by date or even by event… I pick out my paper & see what pictures go with it! This means it takes me longer to complete an album but that’s ok with me… Besides, this way I can go back, sometimes years after an even and re-live that day again… such as this one…

Just over 2 years ago, for my 40th birthday, we went on our 3rd cruise. It was a repositioning cruise up the west coast, starting in LA & ending in Vancouver… although we got off in Victoria as there really isn’t any point in going over to Vancouver, just to turn around & take a ferry back here!!

One of the ports we stopped at was San Francisco, California! This was one day we made sure to set our alarm as we didn’t want to miss seeing the Golden Gate Bridge! This meant getting up around 6:30am but it was worth it! By 7am we were passing under the bridge! What a great start to our very busy day!

FYI – the colour of the bridge is called International Orange & was choosen “because it complements the natural surroundings and enhances the bridge’s visibility in fog“. Sure Glad there wasn’t any fog the day we arrived!

Well till next time… Happy Scrapping!! 🙂
