Layout Series

My Cover Page

Billy and I in high school; he came into my life 30 years later

Billy was a jockey and rode racehorses for many years

Hello my friends!  I am sure many of you have made resolutions for this year that you hope you can fulfill and complete.  I am no exception to always having great plans at the beginning of every year and losing sight of those goals within a few months.  One of my goals this year is to keep some type of journal expressing all the things that I am grateful for.  Since it is difficult for me to write, I decided to journal my gratitude through pictures that was self explanatory.  It took me awhile to figure out how I was going to make this happen.

Initially I thought I would purchase one of those smash books that is the current rave...but when I saw how small they were....I decided to make a 12 by 12 album.  I have not purchased the album yet, but it will definitely be "cutesy"!

To aid me in "staying the course and going the distance", I determined that I would start a Layout Series....I have discovered that if I have a deadline of sorts that I am more inclined to want to keep at it....

I really enjoy making layouts and when I got back into crafting in intention was to create layouts for my son's as-yet-unfinished baby album.  Then, I discovered YouTube, Blogger, Facebook, Design Teams....and my son's album is still "one" of my projects!

Hope you enjoy this series.


  1. So lovely! You will cherish these :)


  2. Great layout! I still am in a working progress mode on my boys albums :o) Heck, I'm still working on my wedding album from two years ago also, lol. I have some pics on my blog of the recent layouts I have completed :o) Hugs!

  5. Great layouts! The stories that go with the pictures are so important!

  6. This album is wonderful! I've never seen pictures of you and Billy when you guys were younger, just current pics you post on fb. That blue dress is SHORT and beautiful. These pages really made me smile. Thank you so much for sharing such personal pictures and info. I feel privileged to have been a part of your layout experience.
