Remember When...

I made this scrapbook for a lady that works in our department. Her name is Alola! She has been a head cook in our hospital for the past 40 years. She is retiring this week. The scrapbook has lots of photos that co-workers had from over the years. I love the photo of her taken about 30 years ago! She is a great person and wonderful cook! She will be missed very much! Our department purchased her a camera as one of her going away gifts...since she does not own a camera. My wish is that she will have time to take all the pictures she desires now.

Dawn McVey Color Challenge

UPDATE: I received honorable mention for this project in the Guest Star Stamper June contest at Papertrey Ink...check it out here. I'm so thrilled!!
I'm on a roll with these Timeless Templates from Lauren Meader! For me, they seem to get easier the more I do them;) Dawn McVey is having a color challenge this I made a lunch pail in her color scheme. I have to say, this color scheme really stumped me at first. I ended up with something that I really like! It feels good to go out of the comfort zone. I played around with differnt inks and glitters that I had available. I used the Palette pink to stamp on the bitty dots paper and it gave a wonderful soft look. The colors are a little more vibrant IRL...took the photos outside and the sun was VERY bright! Click on the picture to get a more detailed view. TFL!
