I just finished a layout about my sweet grandparents. My "poppa" is gone now so my "nan" is the only grandparent I have left. I wanted to do a page that showed a long ago memory and a memory in my late twenties and then to date... wishing I could just sit with them both for one more dinner.

The Girls.....

This is the first time in more than 4 years that most of us could all get together! Two other girls that live out of town and state could not be here with us. We ran wild in our twenties, having a blast, we've been through weddings, divorces, babies and death of loved ones. We are now in our mid-thirties and still trying to keep up with each other which has been hard. But we've all joined Facebook and now keep up weekly with each other!! I love all of you and hope we can get together again soon. -Nikki

My Leep Year Album....

This album I made was from a class @ CKC-KC called "A peek into my week". I changed the title of my album to fit my need for a Leep Year mini album. I took pictures all day on Leep Day in February to document the day. So I had to make many changes to it, like the tap names, used with rub-ons. I love the little owls, so cute! Ali Davis taught this class and a couple of my CK MB friends, Steph and Christie took the class with me. We had a great time and enjoyed meeting Ali Davis too.

My name in CK!

I was so happy that I got recognized by one of my favorite scrapbooking magazines! Keeping fingers crossed that I'll get published soon.

My election day layout...

It doesn't matter what party you support, as women we should vote!
My journaling reads:
The first women's right to vote meeting was held in 1848. More than 70 years would pass before the Nineteenth Amendment was secured, and women voted for the first time in August of 1920. For my great-great grandmothers I proudly voted today and said a silent prayer of gratitude as I inserted my ballot into the election box.
