Survivor at Tally

Survivor challenges are back at Tallyscrapper. These are so much fun! The challenge is posted on Thursday and you have until the following Wednesday to get your layout done. There is always a little catch in the challenge. This week it was to use something you would need to survive if you were in the middle of nowhere. I used twine and wire. Jim has had to survive in the middle of nowhere and he said to use wire. So, in the tradition of "Save the Fork" at Ciao2, I tried making a fork from wire. NO LAUGHING.

My bff, Kim was here from AR with her boss and a co-worker. We went to Ciao2 for dinner. They were very excited and pleased with Chef Patrick's food. These are the desserts he made for us.

Another one of Adeline.

This is for the challenge at Scrapfit. I am starting to love this blog because it gives me mojo. It was to use a solid color cardstock, 3 pattern papers, at least 2 photos, 2 different ribbons and a star. The tree is a scrap cut from pp in the layout of William. The most important part of the challenge was hidden journaling, which I never do, but it was fun! It is behind the box cardboard and reads, "Jim reading and Adeline in our new travel trailer. Not sure the little stinker liked it." lol Couldn't really tell by the photo if she was doing thumbs up or thumbs down.

Great Grandson

Adeline is so cute, but William is alot of competition for her. Here he is at the Zoo in San Antonio. He is so cute! I have only done one other monochromatic layout. It was for a challene on Tallyscrapper and I really didn't know what I was doing. This time it was fun!
