Our Memories of Fredricksburg (clear scrapbook mini album)

Its a Sweet Life...the theme for

The pics don't do it justice. I wish I got a pic of the roomy comfy furniture in the living room. 

to the left I made mini flip card inserts of the wonderful murals. These murals were so realistic and gorgeous.

This funny lil' rooster was following me around at the Inn as I was attempting to take pics of the place. I called him the grounds keeper.

This is the front cover up close:
This months theme is Sweet Life at paperissues blog. I chose to do a mini clear acetate album using Dena designs kit.
Note: (I added some Prima notecards: flowers, Stamps from stampabilities:deadbeat designs, Papers other than from kit were scraps from: Me and my big ideas, Paper Studio, Stamping Station.  Punches: Martha Stewart, Ek success.)
Having 7 children over the years left very little time or money to enjoy each other as a couple. Now that the kids are older, we can take off for a mini vacation enjoying the Sweet Life together as we explore each other and our dreams. We love visiting old rustic bed and breakfasts or anything vintage. Our dream is to one day have a big barn in the country and convert it for rustic country wedding hall.

  3. Omgosh Joyce, So good to hear from you. YEah! I didnt remember that you scrapbooked. I hope that you enjoy the ideas and I would love to see your work! I see Kelly on FB everynow and then. She is a doll. Thanks for the compliments. Love you Joyce.

  4. Your album is Wonderful! I love the photos!!! The design of the pages are awesome!!! I'm glad you could get off to spend a special weekend together. Summer '09 I was in Fredericksburg for a wedding!!! I hadn't been there since 1981 and before that 1977. Back then it reminded me more of Calvert about five years ago. A town which had seen better days and is being rediscovered for it's older buildings. Next time your in Fredericksburg check out the Hanger Motel, a delightful inn. As soon as you walk in you are transported back to the 1940's in decor. Next door is the Airport Diner in the style of a 1950's diners. This is where we stayed for the wedding as the reception was held there. What fun to watch the planes land and take off. Roooms remarkably quiet!
