This is my Grand Canyon layout - I made it using the (appropriately named) Grand Canyon kit from Barbara ~ Just Passing Through. You can pick it up here. She does some pretty amazing work... Please remember to leave her some love. She is a very busy woman, who takes that extra time to give us some pretty lovely kits. Your thank you will mean a lot!

I am not extra chatty today. It looks to be a beautiful day. They say tomorrow an Arctic cold front will descend upon us... zeros for several days... and snow. Ummm Could you folks in Canada find a way to send that stuff back to Alaska and Russia please... LOL.


We seem to have had a large critter visit out porch last night... it marked the BBQ about 18 inches up - and is making the dogs bonkers... I hope it is not a coyote, wolf, or mountain lion marking its turf... and stalking our dogs. No, I don't like that idea at all! It has more of a cat smell - if you catch my "drift"... and they scare me the most.


So that is all the excitement in my world. I think today is a "shut down the computer - make some chili, clean some house..." day. Be well...
catch ya later

That critter really sounds big to me!! Scary!!

Your layout is stunning!
Wow, you do have to deal with such different things being out in the mountains, don't you? We, in the suburbs, just don't think about mountain lions or wolves coming on our porch. What does one do to deter them from coming so close? Stay bundled up!

WOW! WOW! WOW! What an awesome LO!
I love the way you placed the small photos around the focal point, the blending and the choice of kit is perfect! I guess I'm 'gonna have to break down and give the blending thing a try!
Keep those critters at bay and stay warm.
Big Texas Hugs,

That's a great lay out! Very effective. I don't do scrapbooking ... but I know what looks nice!

Hope that's not a cat ... they scare me too. We saw one in our area a couple of years ago now but it didn't hang around ... thank goodness. They have a huge range.

LOVE your layout! it's LOVELY!
oh i sure hope it is not a mtn. lion that is coming in your yard!! We don't have wolves, but we sure have the coyotes, mtn. lions and bobcats here in the desert! SCARY but beautiful! Have a WONDERFUL day! :)
