I live in the world of grandbabies. My world revolves around my babies. I am so blessed that 3 of the grandbabies (oh ya and their parents too ..lol) live on the opposite end of our house. They give Nana a reason to get out of bed in the morning! My other grandbabies come and visit too, and Nana loves having them visit too! Everyone that said grandbabies are more fun than your own children were right. All this time I thought they were crazy, until I got my first grandbaby. I am still in awe over how much you can love a child that you didn't give birth to. Of course I love my daughters too, but not near as much as my grandbabies! lol Nana loves you Kaylee, Allan, Clayton, Isabel, and Keegan!

Welcome to our FALL CELEBRATIONS BLOG HOP. The design team is thinking outside the box this fall to bring you some new crafty inspiration. Whether you are celebrating a fall birthday or anniversary - birth of a new baby or a Halloween celebration...and let's not forget those of us in the US celebrating our Thanksgiving...there are plenty of ways ...to celebrate in the fall. Please hop along with us as we show you ways to celebrate those special fall occassions.

 I made a couple simple cards with the pumpkin bear from the Beary Scary file, and a gift bag for a yummy pumpkin spice candle with the Fall Bears file.  However, My favorite project for this hop is the layout of my grandson Clayton's first birthday party at Great Grandma's house.  I used the you gobble up my heart file since he was gobbling up his cake! lol  I have to say though, he didn't get this messy all by himself!  Auntie Charli helped decorate him in frosting!  When Mommy bathed him at Great Grandma's house his bath water turned bluish green!  He still had a little interesting coloring to him after his bath! lol



  1. BARB - WOW!!! You totally out-did yourself today. I love those cute cards and the gift bag is AMAZING. The layout leaves me speechless and remembering my own "blue' birthday boy (32 years ago!) I absolutely love it! Thank you so much for joining in today!
