Gardens of Stanley Park in Vancouver

The flowers in Stanley Park are so very beautiful. Here is a two page layout I did of the gardens. I still have lots of pictures to scrap but here are some of my favorite. These photos are of Rob, Sandy, Heather, Bob and Loretta (Grandad and Grandma) on our trip to Vancouver and Alaska last summer. The flowers were so gorgeous we all went crazy taking pictures of them! I made up this page on my own using the Studio Calico kit "Baker's Dozen" from last month.

Three Generations

This photo is one of my favorites from Vancouver. In the photo are my mom, Loretta, myself, Sandy, and my daughter, Heather. It was taken in the rose gardens at Stanley Park. It was such a lovely spot for a photo. While we were sitting on the steps we could smell the lavendar in the gardens which are in the photo. It smelled wonderful. Lavendar is my favorite scent. I used a sketch from Creative Scrappers #94 for this photo. The papers were by Melissa Frances. Thanks for checking out my newest layout.

Wicked Halloween

Heather, Joan, Andy, Ani, Robby and Christine went to a Halloween party this year and these are some photos of them in their costumes. Heather and Joan were both witches. Ani was a devil and Andy was "Phil" from the movie "Kickin 'n Screamin". Robby and Christine were survivors from the television show "Survivor". They all looked great in their costumes. The sketch I used was from Inspired Blueprints.

Tracy Arm, Alaska

These are pictures taken at Tracy Arm, Alaska. We were very lucky because it was foggy in the morning but by the time our ship got into Tracy Arm it had lifted. We were so glad too because it was beautiful. There were icebergs floating in the water, waterfalls and beautiful mountains. The water was a beautiful blue green. The icebergs were my favorite. Some were little and some were big. They had a blue tint to them in the sun but when the sun went behind the clouds they became a vibrant blue. Absolutely beautiful and we took lots of pictures of them. These are photos of Rob, Heather and I on the ship. Our cabin came with blankets and we used them when we were out on our veranda. We were so lucky to have a cabin with such a large veranda. Ours was especially large because my parents cabin was right next to ours and they opened the veranda so we had one large one. We spent a lot of time watching the icebergs on our veranda. The sketch for this layout was from Let's Scrap.

True Colors

These photos were taken at our hotel the River Rock Casino outside of Vancouver. There was a boat dock behind the hotel and these photos were taken there. We loved to go out on the dock in the evenings to watch the beautiful sunsets. I was so excited because one night we saw a beaver swimming in the water next to the dock. I took a short video of him swimming in the water too. We had a good time. The first layout was done from a sketch from Sketch Inspiration and the second layout I did myself.
