Alaska book complete

Yeah -- I've finally completed my Alaska Scrapbook! (well, except for my title page that is). We took a wonderful 2 week trip over this last Summer and it has been so much fun reliving all the good times. Used my SCAL again to create the title from varoius fonts I have on the computer - love the welding feature. Also, above the totem pole pic are some 'wingdings' already loaded onto the computer that I tweaked, again using SCAL. Absolutely love this program! I 'roughed' up the edges of as many of the papers as I could to add to the rustic feel of where we were. I'm always trying to put as much as I can on a page (probably too much sometimes) and am fond of creating 'hidden' journaling - notice my totem pole pic is a flap that lifts up to reveal a few more pics and journaling. Enjoy!

Mom is continuing to struggle throughout her cancer treatments -- so ironic and horrible that something that is supposed to be getting rid of all the bad 'stuff' also gets rid of a lot of the 'good' stuff you need! She continues on though. As of last Friday, she completed half of her 34 radiation treatments -- whoo hoo! Will receive another chemo 4 day dose beginning the Monday after Easter -- we're both dreading that for her.

Our last Sunday at our current churches will be on April 11 -- so very hard to leave those you've grown to love! We've always been warmly welcomed in our new church homes and believe this new experience will be no different. Lots to do between now and then.


  1. Great layout! I love the hidden journaling.

    We'll miss you!

  2. Thanks Karen! I've practically moved all my scrapbook stuff to mom's to keep me busy while she rests.
