MDS Monday - ENJOY Every Moment

No, you haven't entered some kind of freaky time warp...it is indeed Wednesday. I was away on Monday, so didn't get a chance to post an MDS Monday and besides, this photo, which I swiped from my Dad, was only uploaded to Facebook yesterday!

However, since I (almost) always upload MDS projects on Mondays, I didn't want to mess with my post title - LOL!

At any rate, yesterday was a pretty crappy day and I wanted to work with something that would make me smile. The picture in this little 6 x 6 layout does just that.

I'm sure it'll make you smile too:


This is my GRAND Aunt Anne and her daughter Melodie. I know a lot of people say GREAT Aunt when referring to an Aunt of an older generation, the correct term is actually GRAND when referring to a sibling of your grand parent (in this case, Anne is my Grampy's sister). If I was talking about a sister of my GREAT grandparent, then she would be my Great Grand Aunt. Confusing enough for ya? LOL! Anyway, I still just call her Aunt Anne and I love her to pieces!

The photo was taken on Saturday evening during the 2011 Johnson Family Reunion dinner. The dinner was attended by at least 4 generations of Johnsons...there may have been five, but I haven't figured out the math - LOL!

You may have heard that our camera was left behind at the Ottawa airport yesterday, so I don't have any photos. It's beginning to look like our camera was NOT picked up by a good samaritan, so the only photos I'll have of the reunion are ones taken by others. This makes me VERY sad. Not that I took THAT many pictures, but it's the principle of the thing. What a horrible society in which we live. And it's not like it was a little point and shoot either...*sigh*

Anyway...for the layout I used the Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper. I just LOVE that nothing retires in MDS! All my embellishments, stamped images and text were done in Chocolate Chip with a few done Rose Red and Whisper White.

What do you think?

PAPERS: Springtime Vintage
ACCESSORIES: Buttons, Brads, Stitching
STAMPS: Enjoy Every Moment

Happy MDSin'!

P.S. I'm keeping the blog candy here open till Friday, so you still have a few more days to enter!
