Liz is challenging us to create a layout with the following parts: P is for patterned paper A is for alphabet - R is for ribbon - mine is a tied ribbon T is for tab - my tab is part of the readymade strip by Kayleigh Y is for yellow - I chose yellow brushwork, paper and a button I've going back to my photos folder for the year 2005, the year that Designer Digitals started. This has to be one of my all time favorite photos of my first grandson. I feel so lucky I had my camera handy when this spontaneous hug took place on Mother's Day.

Also, be sure to read this blog announcement about the other challenges and activities starting today and continuing for the several days of the party! Lila Bleu is one of my all time favorites because I love the color blue. It's been a favorite of mine ever since I was a young girl. I decided to create a new layout using Lila Bleu and a photo from 2005, the year Designer Digitals started. You can see my other picks in the thread for the 10 favorites I started.

So many possibilities! Thank you! Next month is Austism Awareness month so I am sharing that I am connected to the autism community through my son, daughter-in-law and grandson. My son and daughter-in-law started a school called the Holland Center for children on the autism spectrum and also organize an annual 5K Run for Autism in Minneapolis in the month of May. TFL *The top photo was taken by a photographer from the Minneapolis Star &amp; Tribune and appeared in an article in which my daughter-in-law was interviewed about the vaccine controversy after the recent measles outbreak. She is not anti-vaccination, however, she is a strong advocate for increasing vaccine safety since our grandson is vaccine injured.

One idea was all about ampersands, so, that is where this layout started. The ampersand is from the Heartwell Italic font. Then, when I went to Katie's new Blendable Layers Kit, I got the idea for the theme Bloom &amp; Grow. I love experimenting with the blendable layers kits. It's a fun surprise! I highly recommend this series. :) New in the store by Katie Pertiet: [b][u][url=]Blendable Layers No. 24[/url][/b][/u] [b][u][url=]Collageable Pieces No. 02[/url][/b][/u] and [b][u][url=]Painted Spot Dots No. 01[/url][/b][/u] [b][u][url=]Childhood Clusters and Stamps No. 01[/url][/b][/u] [b][u][url=]Paint Swirls No. 02[/url][/b][/u] [b][u][url=]On the Edge Flourishes No. 01[/url][/b][/u] [b][u][url=]From My Bookshelf Blendables No. 02[/url][/b][/u] [b][u][url=]Splatters Brushes and Stamps No. 02[/url][/b][/u] Font: Heartwell Italic TFL<br /><br />11 comments Wed, 18 Mar 2015 23:25:51 +0000 Saturday Scraplift Lynn Grieveson <a href=";title=saturday-scraplift-lynn-grieveson&amp;cat=702"><img class="imgborder" title="LynnLift7001.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="LynnLift7001.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: digigrandma<br /><br />Description}: Birthday Wishes We're scrap lifting one of designer Lynn Grieveson's pages today!

I got my idea from Lizj's page about one of her favorite authors. I have a favorite author I'd love to meet, too. I think he is witty, smart and funny and a wonderful story teller. His books are the only books I ever read parts of aloud to my husband because of the understated, subtle humor. He lives in Scotland, but, has also spent time in Botswana. If I could meet him for tea, I'd ask him to tell me more about Botswana, the setting for his No. 01 Ladies Detective Series.

She gives us wonderful examples and it encourages me to try something a little different. Great fun, Mel. Thanks! Did you know that the forerunner of the snowboard was the Snurfer, invented by an engineer back in 1965? You can google it to read about it and they are still for sale. My DH happens to have 2 of the boards tucked away in our garage, given to him by a coworker who retired and moved to Florida. This winter he brought them out for the grandsons to try. They were definitely a hit with them.

The boys went with grandpa on his daily walk down the beach. I was waiting for them to come back and took several shots as they approached. One grandson is running to catch up after stopping to look at something on the beach. The younger grandson is splashing his hands in the water. It was the end of a perfect day which included much swimming and playing. This photo evokes all these memories for me.
