{Adornit Blog Hop}

Hi and Welcome!
For those of you that are visiting my blog for the first time, I'm Mary Ann from sunny Southern California, my hubby and I have three boys ages 22, 19 & 8, and one little princess that's 8 months old. I love to scrapbook, and am excited to be part of the ADORNit Blog Hop
On my first layout, I used all Adornit papers and had fun tearing and shabby-ing it up a bit. (click on the layouts to see them up close!!)

On this next layout, I used more Adornit papers, and love how these modern 2009 papers go perfectly with photos of me from 1968. (I think my only question is why I have on the same outfit in the picture of me in Utah as the one of me in Virginia?? lol)


Thanks for visiting! The next stop on the Adornit Summer Blog Hop is Tammy Anderson, visit her blog here.

***also, my inlaws have been in town visiting, so I've been doing all the "touristy" things with them...I should be back to blogging a bit more regular by the weekend***
