Moments

Hi you all and welcome to our second January challenge over at Lasting Memories, is all about captured moments. I have found, through going back and looking over my photos that some of the best moments captured is when your not aware the picture is being taken. Then, there are my favorite moments captured intentionally or not the moments usually involved the grandkids. Here are 3 of my favorite moments:
Dave holding Avery (Albert's oldest son now 11 years old) for the first time, gathering of the kids and grandkids for the 1st Easter Egg Hunt we had, Dave had to explain the rules :) it was a funny moment. One of my favorite moments with Zachary he started doing the clapping as with the chicken dance, brought a big oh smile to my face. I'm really enjoying this month at Lasting Memories with their fun theme and challenges. We hope you will play along with us :)
This layout was made using the sketch over at Sketch N Scrap twistback thursday ( a fun new challenge for their blog) here is the sketch:

 their TWIST: Out with the old and in with the new in 2015: use something old that is a year or more old on your layout as well as something that is new.  Make sure and tell us what you used that was old and what was new! Old: the lace, the circle brad, the pink doily, the metal button. New: the paper is Simple Stories Homespun which I purchased with my Christmas giftcard this year when I went to Michaels on Jan 2. 

 I cut up 2 3X4 cards to get the pennant action here in the corner. Picture of Dave and Avery 11 years ago.
Moments was cut out with my cameo it was a file I purchased for the store. (this past week was Silhouette week for cutting for this and some other upcoming projects) Most of the embellishments came from my current counterfeit kit and so glad to use up that other half of pink doily and got it out of my stash :)
The lace border was a fun addition and was not the original plan for the layout but the other border was way to wide, but I do love the lace and texture of it on the layout. The journaling block was a cut out piece for a tag that was in my journal tag pad. Cherished moments through the years from the time we met Avery to now. Scrapped 2015
Thanks for stopping by today to see what's happening in my little corner of the world and I hoe you all join us over at Lasting Memories and show us you captured moments
