We All Scream

I like the clean white background of this one, the colors, and the "stitched" paper. She really enjoyed her first few bites of this treat. Ice cream is a necessary dairy food,...

A Letter to O

I saw this idea long before I had kids and decided that I wanted to do it. The idea is to write a letter to your children each year for their birthday. I was a little late this year with Olivia's, but I did finally get it done. Soon I will have two letters to write each year, but I hope to continue the tradition to remind them how special they are to me.Another great idea I read about in the current issue of "Simple Scrapbooks" magazine is to keep a notebook handy to write things down as you think of them. I put one out on my desk today and so far have two things written down. I would...

PLAYDOH!

These were some of my favorite shots. I took these back when I was really working hard on my photography. Since becoming pregnant again, I haven't had the time or energy, but hope to one day get back to trying to create shots like these. I waited until just the right time of day and then moved her high chair in front of our large triple windows to get just the right light. I don't think the set-up ruined her enjoyment of the moment at all.She still tries to eat the Playdoh even at 20 months. Hopefully she will outgrow it...

A Favorite

I love the way this one turned out. I love the layout, the paper, and of course the subject matter.I should point out that all my scrapbooking is digital, and I usually use premade papers and elements from very talented designers. One of my favorite digital scrapbooking sites is www.digitalscrapbookplace.com. I am also a big scraplifter. I borrow ideas from websites and magazines, rarely having the time or creativity to come up with my own...

Some Autumn Pages

The trip to the pumpkin patch was a big hit with the entire family. It was also a tough page to scrapbook; I had so many good photos.Not sure what my goofy look was for on the FSU page. I am just a nut I guess. I love how she quickly got tired of the photo shoot and left.Click any page to make it larger and read the...

A post…

I have been searching for a way to display my latest scrapbook pages to a small audience without having to go public with them on the digital scrapbooking websites. I am testing out Blog This! to see if it will suit my purposes. So this is a test... I recently completed a Scrapbook Retreat weekend with three of my friends. We started at 9:00 Saturday morning and stopped at noon on Sunday. I was able to finish 21 pages in that time, bringing my grand total to 51 pages so far this year. (Yes, I did sleep some during that time.) This page shows O's first time on a swing. Obviously, it was a...
