Four Generations

Hi you all. I found out yesterday to stay busy to keep my mind on something else, grieving a dog can be just as hard as grieving a good friend. Every time I thought about him the tears would just well up. So I got some cleaning done before finally sitting down and getting this layout done.
I was involved with a 24 hour challenge over at Scrappin N Chattin yahoo group and the sketch that was chosen for me was perfect for the layout. I've been waiting a bit to find the perfect sketch.
This is my husband and his son (my stepson), his granddaughter and our first great grandchild. Waylon is just so precious :) The pictures were taken during the Campbell Family reunion in July 2014. I have to thank my neice Robin for getting this accomplished it was her that talked John into coming in for the reunion from South Dakota. It certainly was a blessed event, a treasured memory.
The point of the challenge is you choose 3 scrapbook collections and the host matches you up with another person and they choose the collection and the sketch to work from and then you have 24 hours to do the layout. Chosen for me was DCWV Mary Jane paper pack and this sketch:

I used a book binder cutout from the one piece of paper for the border, the key was cut out from a page of cutouts, The title and the heart were cut out with 2 different papers from the pad and cut with the cameo. I also cut out some journaling strips from the book page.
 Close up of the 4 Generations photo. I used my brother labeler for the white printed journaling strips
 Picture of the proud Great Grandpa. Waylon's red hair must come from the father's side of the family
 Love this picture of Sabrina, mother and child :) The heart is a cameo cut, I cut out a few different ones and this one worked. One nice thing about cutting out a full page of cuts there are all kinds of extras for upcoming layouts. I did the same thing with the brown paper too.
 The journaling says it all, it was a joyous event. Looking forward to the 1st birthday party.
So I've got some birthday cards to make today and get my old home embroidery machine working, if it happens you just might see some interesting things happen on my scrapbook layouts.
Have a fantastic Sunday.....

I'll be entering this layout in the:
Lasting Memories Layout Challenges: Anything Goes challenge


  1. I love all of the beautiful details on your LO - what a fabulous family memory to scrap.

  2. Tina, so sorry on the loss of your pet...that's a difficult thing to go through. It's losing a beloved friend. Glad you were able to keep busy and keep the tears at bay just a bit. Your layout is precious. What a treasured time that must have been and how lovely that you are able to preserve it with this pretty layout pictorial. Will be looking forward to seeing your embroidery at work here. Been so long since I used my embroidery machine, I doubt I'd remember how to thread it! Would be nice on cards though, huh? TFS & hugs.

  3. Tina, when you lose a pet, you are losing a life long friend. Dogs are so loyal no matter what, they love you unconditionally. So you cry if you need to because you lost a very good friend. I know keeping busy does help but we still need to grieve to move on. Your layout is beautiful!!! I love the papers you used and the die cuts. The pictures are so precious and Waylon is just so precious, he would fit right in with my grandchildren with the red hair! How exciting it is to have 4 generations together this past summer and to have a great-grandson to boot!!! This is indeed an exciting time for you and hubby. Now I'm excited to see what you do with your embroidery machine. I sure wish my email notifications would come back to my in box! Hugs, Brenda

  4. Gorgeous page, Tina! LOVE the colors!!! Sorry I have been MIA! Hope to be visiting more often.
