My Babies

Shabby Garden by Rosey Posey
Layer Templates bundle 2 by Rosey Posey
Gardening is not my thing to do. I have to admit to having a black thumb. So why pick Geraniums to plant, because everyone says they are hardy and easy to grow.

I brought home one plant, and my dear husband made a statement about how long it would live. The next day I got another plant because the one just looked way too lonely in the pot by itself. My dear husband notice there was an addition and I acted surprised that it was there and said “oh look honey my geraniums had babies.....ha ha

Mother and babies are still doing fine...hoping to add more babies to the garden in the future...

Grandma's House

Memories by Rosey Posey available at Scrapbookgraphics

This was for the Heritage Challenge at Scrapbookgraphics

I have many fond
memories of my times
at grandma's house.
I remember her teaching
me to crochet, playing
games, such as Pokeno
and monopoly. I remember
the mint she grew in her
garden and her making
me mint tea with it. She's
gone now, but she left
me a heritage full of fun,
laughter and a feeling of being
Always and Forever Grandma!

This is me and my sister at grandma's house. We look like a couple of orphans,
but you have to remember those were our play dresses, we didn't wear pants in
those days.

**New** Just Say'n Challenge

I'm starting a new challenge called "Just Say'n". Each month I will include a word, a phrase, or even the words to a song. Your challenge is to use it on your layout in some way. it could turn out to be your title, subtitle or part of your journaling....

Your challenge for August is to use this line "Life in Black and White" somewhere on your layout. I've created some wordart that you may use if you want, but it's not required.
Here's the layout I created with the wordart for the challenge....
