Mini Phone Book

This is a little book I made for Ben back when he was trying to learn people's addresses & phones.  I haven't found an easy way to update it, as it has changed considerably.  A 3 ring might have been better?

He picked out all the papers that he wanted to use.











I think if I did one again, I would just have lined paper on the one side & let him write it, and in a 3 ring.  That way it can be changed/updated & capture his handwriting.

Thank You Cards

The image quality of these isn't the best, I was fooling around with my camera settings, but I think you'll still be able to see them OK.


Just some quick, fun cards using up some scraps from other project. I love being able to stretch out supplies & it is certainly nice to have a stack of cards ready to go when I need them!
Thanks for looking!

National Hot Dog Day

OK, so I'm a day late & a dollar short - again, but with it being Super Bowl Sunday and all, I figured at a least a few of these would be consumed today.  And just to get you going, here's a lovely picture for you....

A real life, honest to goodness old-fashioned Drive-Up in Peru, IN.  They have some of the best hotdogs, ever!


And yes, that is really their name.  Doesn't it make you giggle?!  So go scrap some food pictures, you know you want to, I dare you...

National Oatmeal Month - January

OK, I was going to get a video clip to stick in here, but I couldn't find one I like, so we'll just go without the music.....

I have a confession to make.... I didn't get any layouts uploaded last week.  I did get more of my mom's pictures sorted - found her old report cards from elementary school, her birth certificate, and a bunch of hospital stuff from my brothers' births - cool stuff. I did get the CheckBoxZ finished up, so I just need to snap some pics & upload them to the shop.  I did start a layout of my nephew's birthdays.  I think I'm doing 5 on a page.  Even grabbed a couple out of my parent's duplicates folder, how cool is that?  I did sing special music yesterday & have a nice long lunch with pastor Kay.  I did take a nap.  I did help my parents by cleaning out their closet.  Mostly.  My dad needs to give up some of his coats.  And I did proof some of my digital photos.  I'm down to doing about a folder a week instead of before.  But they are still getting done.  It's eating an elephant - one bite at a time.  But I'm sorry I didn't get any layouts uploaded.  I also did run out of time and energy.  The new schedule is kicking my hiney, but it will be OK.

OK, and since my mom has always said I'll be late for my own funeral, which means I suppose in this case that I'm a day late & a dollar short, it was national oatmeal month in January.  So, I think you should celebrate by having a big, steaming bowl of this yummy goodness.  And yes, I recommend this brand, and this kind of oatmeal.  Free your tastebuds from instant, it's worth it, trust me.  Now, in Ireland, they call it porridge, you know as in "peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas porridge in the pot, nine days old".  But whatever name you call it, there is only 1 word to describe it - yummy, hearty, delicious, filing, good for you... OK, maybe more than 1....


And yes, clementines are darling, and yummy too.  We each bunches of them, thanks to an old Spanish prof I had at IUPUI who turned me on to them.   They are so easy to peel, small & yummy!

So, I also challenge you to make a layout about your love of oatmeal (or clementines) and if you want, send it to me, I'll post it here, just email me benzillascrapping at gmail dot com...

Happy scrapping!
