February 8, 2008 Sarah Coggins

A couple of weeks ago, I posted about my grandfather’s 86th birthday celebration. This week I made a digital 8.5×11 layout to share with the rest of the family. I used the sketch provided on Feb 9/10 of dw2008 for my inspiration.

Supplies: File Folder, Photo Frame, Label & Masking Tape from Rhonna Farrer’s Office Supply Tool Kit at Two Peas; Birthday Cake Tag from hapPEA Birthday Kit at Two Peas; Paperclip from Craft Jar Kit at Peppermint Creative; background paper from After Midnight Kit at Peppermint Creative; Two Peas fonts: Blocks – Birthday, Blocks – Happy, Flower Pot, and Old Type; Lucida Sans font.

With the nicer weather coming what is one thing your family looks forward to doing?
Trent & I are looking forward to various trips. The beach is one of those. Thankfully, his parents’ own a place a couple hours from here in South Carolina so we can get away for a weekend to relax. Another trip that will hopefully be in the next month or two is a visit to the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro. For Christmas, Trent gave me a year’s membership to the NC Zoo. We have free admission for the year as well as any zoo or aquarium that is part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. If we can squeeze it in, I’d also like to make a trip to the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores.

    Great Layout! Wow 86 - congratulations!

    I'm starting to turn digi,too. I've been over at RakScraps - and it's very convincing. I have too much paper to really ever give up traditional - but I am starting to see the digi way.

    okay, girl 3 things:
    1. I feel like that dude is MY grandfather sometimes, ROFL ROFL. Does he know how famous he is? winkwink

    2. lovelovelove it when calendar girls scraplift the specific layout. i bet someone could actually scraplift each layout and have just as much fun. if i ever scrap a layout again (sometimes I wonder), I need to remember to try that.

    and 3. i think you are a biologist or botanist deep down...some kind of science. cuz you love that stuff. i admire that, since it was like my weakest subject on school.
