I am joining the DT for the First 2015 Challenge for Lasting Memories

Hello and welcome to our very first challenge for 2015 at Lasting Memories! We're celebrating the new year and new Design Team with a blog hop. Super fun right?! If you're just starting the hop, be sure to start at Lasting Memories so you don't miss anyone -
if you're last stop was Andrea then you're on the right track!
I am so excited to be returning to the Lasting Memories Design Team.  I have been so busy the last couple years with grandkids and with the scrapbook store where I teach and design.  I love the concept of Lasting Memories as my first love in scrapping is layouts so on with the first challenge.  

Our challenge theme this entire month is "Life's Moments" and our first challenge is "Life's Simple Pleasures" .. we want to know what one of your simple pleasure's in life is. Chocolate? Coffee? Adorable children, pets or grandchildren?? SO many things to consider
and we're excited to see what you create!
What's my Simple Pleasure??? Here, let me show you!

My simple pleasure for today is two of my four grandchildren Katie and Brittany.  There is nothing better than spending time with grandkids.  They make my heart so full and I love scrapbooking these lovely memories.  This shot was taken while picking blueberries this past Summer.    I think they ate more than they put in the bucket but a grand time was had by all.
Today is actually Katie's (on the right)  5th birthday.  So hard to believe she is already 5 and such a sweet girl.  She is hugging her sister Brittany who is just as sweet and is now 3.

The paper I used for the layout was Kaisercraft Happy Snap Collection.
 I love the graphics on this paper.
The Happy Little Moment title is from the Silhouette Design Store #43189 and the stripe pattern arrow is number #42421.

This is the second side of the double page layout using the same Kaisercraft paper.  
Closeups of my two sweet girls and mom and the blueberry patch.  




Your next stop is Lyne and when you're all done visiting the new Design Team, we really hope you'll have time to join the fun! All our challenges run for the entire month, so you have time to play! Thanks for stopping by today!
