Key West Sunset

Twenty eight years ago, on June 21, on a rainy Saturday morning in Guyana, Neville and I were married. Reverend Harsham came to our home and performed a simple wedding ceremony.

Last Saturday, on a rainy morning, my husband and I took a trip to Key West, Florida. We had lots of fun walking on Duval Street, taking photos at the Southernmost Point, and watching the sunset on our dinner cruise. It was a fitting celebration for our 28th wedding anniversary!

Thanks for stopping by and do enjoy the Key West sunset on the first day of summer!

Rookie Scrapbooker

I have emerged from the world of scrap-booking with renewed admiration for all the scrapbookers out there!

This project was conceived when we decided to write birthday letters for a special member of our family who celebrated her 60th birthday earlier this month. I was the project manager! I got most of the letters via e-mail and then I put them into word documents, created text boxes, changed the shape, chose cute fonts, auditioned the paper to see which ones will work best etc.

I also made several trips to the craft store. I scoured the internet for ideas. BIG MISTAKE. Everything I saw looked so professional that the “creative” ideas I had sizzled faster than butter in a hot pan. After willing the “what do I do now” feeling away, I resolved to work with my own inner creativity and I made progress. Thank goodness!

I enjoyed the creative process thoroughly! I am proud of my first attempt.

Here are a few photos:)

My Readers,

I’m trying my hand for the first time at scrapbooking and I am consumed by it at present. I’ve read a few blogs, but only managed to comment on three:) Here is what Pauline at The Contented Crafter had to say:

Scrap-booking you say? Well then, you have entered the gates of doom!! There is no going back and soon you will be engulfed in more and better and bigger projects and your family will never see you again! 🙂 It is a wonderful and addictive hobby because there is always something new to learn. I shall look forward to seeing some of your work featured on your blog 🙂

I will return in two weeks, if not sooner. Meanwhile, may the winds of creativity blow my way! I will be brave and share my project with you when I am through. I will also return to read and comment on your blog posts later.

I just heard the call of an unfinished scrap book page!

I’ll be back…later.

Here’s a photo of me when I was a little girl 🙂
