Flashback Friday

While looking through my scrapbooks, I realized that I really love to scrap about my scrap space! It’s fun to look back how where I create has evolved.  Here are a few of my favorite layouts of my scrap space.  
Enjoy!  🙂

Flashback Friday

Hello everyone!  Happy Friday!

For this week’s Flashback Friday, I thought I would celebrate birds- National Bird Day was actually January 5th! If you follow my blog at all, you will know that I love to scrap about my little birdies.  So… here are a few ‘oldies’ to help celebrate National Bird Day! 

Maxx– and this was the first layout I ever posted online (@ 2Peas.)!

Mom & Athena.  I made up a little cockatoo song & placed it over the music notes.  🙂

Maxx again!

I keep a lot of the feathers the birdies lose- it does come in handy as feathers are “in” right now!

Flashback Friday: Snow Days!

Hello everyone!!  
Well, Northeast Ohio is famous for its Lake Effect Snow, and since it is January, I thought I would share some layouts of winters’ past here.  You can never tell how each winter will treat you here.  One winter, it’s snowfall after snowfall.  Others, like this year (so far), it’s pleasantly mild!  I like when it snows and then melts the next day.  But, I guess when I was a kid, I didn’t have to worry about driving in the hot mess of snow, so I rather enjoyed it all.  
Anyway, enjoy these layouts- in all their snow filled and bundled up glory!  🙂

Happy Friday!!  It’s the first Friday of the year!  Yay!!
I’m here today to share some layouts I’ve created over the past 5 years.  I love to make a layout once a year that includes lots of my favorite photos of the year.  I have a thing for tiny photos anyway, so this is just another way to feed my addiction!  😉

Flashback Friday:  Bird Christmas Portrait Sessions
This is my favorite time of the year!!  I love the whole holiday season… and one of my favorite traditions now is the annual Christmas Portrait taking session.  In 2006, we started taking lots of photos of the birdies and include them in our Christmas cards.  I have so much fun with these sessions!  These are a few of my favorite Bird Christmas Pictures.
Enjoy!
Maxx, Ladd, Lily and Jake- all together!  At least for a moment. Photo taken by my dad.
My pretty girl Athena, with the Christmas tree lights in the background!
Athena. all dressed up!
Athena, dressed up again!  Probably one of my all- time favorite pictures.

Can’t wait to take this year’s photos!!!  Coming up soon…

Flashback Friday:  Some of my fave birdy pics!
Happy Friday everyone!  As I was thinking about what pictures to share this week…. I started looking through some old bird photos.  I love looking at their baby pictures and seeing how they’ve grown.  My pretty babies!  🙂
The 3 Amigos: Maxx, Ladd and Lily

Jake’s First Halloween- love those dark baby eyes!  🙂

My Ladd.  He was a sweetheart.  He lived to be 29. Oh how I miss him!

Miss Athena.  Wearing her butterfly barrette.  🙂

Look at my boys!  Maxx and Ladd.  Ladd about 25 when we adopted Maxx.  Ladd taught Maxx the ropes and tolerated Maxx’s youthful ways.  Maxx is such a sweetheart.  Ladd was a good father figure to him!

Thanks for stopping by!!  🙂
