TBT on Mary Gunn FUNN for May 2008 - 2015

I'm getting in tooth even on the internet!
It is TBT to my own blog for some favorite May posts over the past 7 years.

TBT to earlier this week - one of the Blossom Pajama FUNN Party layouts!
Read more about PJ FUNN Parties here.
May I say, this PJ FUNN party is especially cute and the gals are LOVING it!

TBT; May 2014
I just loved these cards - still miss vellum!
Do you think I will ever get over the separation of vellum and CTMH?


TBT; May 2013
I love this layout - it was made with Cricut leftovers and filled with odds and ends photos of people I have been blessed to know. 
See how on the link.


TBT; May 2011
Studio J Layout Memory - I can't believe it has been this long since I made this layout!
Sweet Mo-girl has passed on now and I miss her snuggles.
Why don't I use Studio J more!?!?!?! I'm setting a new goal 4 Studio J layouts a month!

   
TBT; May 2010
This card was a personal recollection of my mom's "mom-isms"
What things do you say that make you go, "I sound like my mother!"?


TBT; May 2009
Drawing to Show Life - I've saved a lot of memories not with photos (who could get a cat to re-enact this), but with bad sketches. It's me and yes, these drawings are in our scrapbooks!

TBT; May 2008
This is one of my favorites.
Please enjoy this weekend, but I hasten to remind you of the brave servants of freedom who have perished for our freedom and their families. 
God bless you all and God bless America.

Beatles, Scrapbooks, and FUNN thinking

Did you grow up with the Beatles?
Here is a test....
Sing Julia (for you youngsters, this was a very popular song not so long ago).

How many of the lyrics did you remember?
It's OK if they didn't flow, it's been awhile, hasn't it.
Now, play the link and try again....


What's the Point?
Scrapbooks work like listening to the lyrics of a Beatles song.
They help you remember!
The photos, the journaling, the titles, the memorabilia, it all jogs your memory.

Scrapbook. 
Help yourself remember.

and now a FUNN thought...


been playing with a new blog feature.

TBT - Happy Birthday Week - Big Picture Classes


Earlier this month I took several Big Picture Classes
and this is what I did.

What I Did: Water colored the hearts with inks.
What I Think: I liked this look at the time, but I'm already a little tired of it.

What I Did: Cut shapes with scissors instead of trimmer or Cricut
What I Think: Well, hmmmm, it was fast.

What I Did:  Added some groovy clusters
What I Think: Yeah, I like the cluster behind the photo - very eclectic!

What I Did: Collected embellishments in a bowl to add at end.
What I Think: BEST tipp. Really liked this idea.

What I Did: Tried Something New
What I Think: YES! 
If you have been thinking about trying something new,
 like our Pajama FUNN Parties, please do!
We'd love to have you. 
Blossom Pajama FUNN Party - reveal is Saturday morning!
(word from the sneak peek is "CUTE"!)

What I Did: had a sweet baby boy 31 years ago today
What I Think: I have been a part of bringing a force of nature into the world.
HAPPY Birthday, T-Baby!

Mother's Day Cards - Personalized for Your Special Mom's Special Name


Not every mom & granny are a "Mom" or "Grandmother"!
Even on Downtown Abbey there is "Granny", after all.
Some of our moms are known as Mimi, Nana, Gaga, 
Abuelita, and Meemaw.
In my kids' world there is "Mamu" and "Am". There is also
a layout which should be made about these names.

But today it is alphabet stamp sets to the rescue for your
last minute Mother's Day cards (or pin for next year).

For-the-two-new-wedding-shower-card-stampin-up-pattystamps
This card from Patty's Stamping Spot was the inspiration - pretty, isn't it?
Thanks, Patty, for sharing such a pretty card.


I love how these alphabet stamps personalize these cards.
Can you imagine being on the receiving end of such a card?
Totally special touch for the special mom in our lives.

Learn more about making these cards 
and a secret BONUS FUNN card
when you are on my FUNN mail list!


Have a FUNN Mother's Day!
