A Rose Is A Rose **CCCB**

Hi ALL!  I'm back as hostess for this week's challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog.   I was inspired this week by the GORGEOUS papers from our sponsor, Digital Paper Shop. I just LOVE all the LOVELY roses that adorn them. There is something so romantic about roses.  These papers were just PERFECT for this romantic photo of my daughter and son-in-law.   For our theme I chose "A Rose is a Rose" and your challenge is simply to use rose(s) somewhere on your project.   Please check out the BEAUTIFUL projects from our Guest Designer, Kasia, and all our DT over at City Crafter Challenge Blog! I just KNOW you all are going to come up with some STUNNING projects and I can't wait to see them!  HUGS, Cheryl

Traveling Through Time

Hi ALL!  I don't know if you've noticed it, but I have made Thursdays my days to share los that I have done from the past.  This one was created three years ago when my youngest daughter turned 14.  She just had her 17th birthday last week.  I look at this lo and think...ohhhhhh my heck....I can't even believe this was THREE years ago!  I told her to enjoy her birthday this year because in no uncertain terms was I going to have my BABY turning 18!  I have a feeling that birthday will be here before you know it, too.  I better she enjoy EVERY second with her before she ups and leaves the nest, too.  Hope you are ENJOYING EVERY SECOND of this day!  HUGS, Cheryl

Stepping Back In Time

Hi ALL!  Just having another little blast from the past here.  Sharing with you today I lo I created I don't know even how many years ago.  I'm thinking I created it not too long after the photos were about four and a half years ago seems right.  These photos of my grandson eating a lemon just crack me up.  As much as he looks like he was being tortured eating these...he LOVED them and kept going back for more.  It was so hyterical!  It just makes me SMILE to think about it.  Hope you are SMILING from a memory today or maybe CREATING a memory to SMILE about later!  HUGS, Cheryl

Blast From The Past

Hi ALL!  Just felt like sharing one of my favorite los from the past.  I can't believe three years have gone by since I created it and how much my little grandsons have grown.  One of my favorite things to do is dye Easter eggs and it was so much fun to pass that tradition of to my grandbabies.  This year I ended up dying the eggs by myself...sniff...sniff.  Maybe next year I'll have those grandbabies over to help me.  Hope you are spending this day with those you love!!  HUGS, Cheryl
