beth (a.k.a. lucy)

lucy- you got some 'splainin ta do..... ok- if i had a dollar for everytime i've said that to her, i could buy a boatload of elsie products. we are lucy and ethel. we always get into these "messes" together. you never know what is gonna happen. i could be amazing if i had one ounce of her talent. i admire her scrapbook style more than anyone. she has taught me everything i know in the sb world. when we crop together, a creative explosion usually happens. or maybe thats just the taco bell talking.

lori is dana's bff- thats how i met her, thru dana. she has this huge personality and has the ability to make light of any situation. she has an eye for color & she's a great person to scrapbook with. i wish my gf's and i could get together more often to scrapbook, or just to hang out- but it seems like life just gets in the way.

ruth & arold moon

these people are golden. i have so much respect for them. they have always been so encouraging to josh and i. we had the pleasure of serving in ministry with them for about a year at our first church. when i grow up, i want to be like them. what great people we have in our lives who are true examples of what we are to be.

brandi's had a hard knock life. i admire her strength and her ability to laugh at any situation. she is dependable and a boatload of fun. (is boatload really a word?) she's the kind of friend that would do anything for you. she makes me laugh anytime i'm around her.

my momma

this simple layout is of my mom- who is also my friend. we are fortunate enough to get to spend time together a couple times each week. she is the greatest gma ever & the best cook in the world. you haven't eaten true southern food till you've had a meal at momma's house. paula deen ain't got nothin' on her! we get along great and love pulling pranks on my dad. she is a patriotic nut, an elvis freak, she hoards bath & body works lotions, a germophobe, a secret agent for big brother, a scrapbook product collector, and a great momma.

yes- i paper pieced all those strips. mme & scenic route.
ok- so this is my bff. she is my go-to girl. we are addicted to text messaging each other. its how we can still stay connected in the busy scheme of life. since we both are working mommas with husbands who are ministers- we rarely have time to sit down to a nice cup of tea & crumpets together and catch up on our perfect little lives with our perfect picket fenced homes. yeah right- we are as far from that as possible. we always know the scoop on everybody. bring on the good stuff. and the snacks. one thing i love about ange, is that we share the love of scrapbooking. and i love our scrapbooking weekends together. she rocks!

these two layouts are of josh. he is a great friend and such a hardworking hubby. we get along "most" of the time. its hard for him to live with such diva, although he is overwhelmed by my radiating beauty and my compulsive cleanliness.
