Batter Up!

Here's a layout I created of Isaac from last year when he learned how to hit a ball with a bat.
Sometimes, my pictures don't turn out good, or I have my camera set on the wrong setting when I want to snap something real quick to capture the moment. So sometimes, all I have to show for certain moments is a blurry or less than perfect picture. And if that's all I have, I will use it to scrap! I've learnt (the hard way), to cherish (not that I didn't) each and every single picture I do have to show for my children's life. After loosing thousands upon thousands of photos, each picture I do have of them, mean SO SO much to me.

Beach Bliss kit

Hello everyone!
Here I am with a couple fun layouts I just created yesterday! From our recent trip up to Michigan we had a couple wonderful opportunities to head up to Lake Huron while there. So needless to say, I have lots of pictures to scrap! I had the thought that I would really like some new fun beach themed digital elements to compliment the beach pictures! So I asked my sister-in-law, Christina if she wouldn't mind coming up with something! And she got to work right away! And came up with this cool new kit called, Beach Bliss!
It's been lots of fun to play with! Thank-you, Christina!

I'm now on Christina's Creative Team. I am to create two layouts a month featuring her kits as they come out! Here are a couple pages I've done with the Beach Bliss kit.

Here is a page I created this evening. It was a lot of fun to create! Sometimes if I have an idea fresh in my mind I have to scrap it right away, otherwise I forget my thoughts on what I wanted to do and express in the layout.
I love this picture of Samuel. This is one of SEVERAL consecutive pictures I took of him on this lounging chair, I want to scrap the others... I'll have to figure what I'm going to do with those to have them go along with this page. Using the different words to describe his character was a lot of fun! I could have added more, but didn't want to overdo it. I really wanted to use the word "exuberant" instead of "energetic", but it didn't look as good as "energetic" looks in that place. So, unless I think of some other way to put it on there or maybe on another page, I'll just leave it as is for now.

Water Sand Sunshine

Over at the Creative Inspiration blog they posted a challenge. It was suppose to be for Saturday, but I uploaded my image anyway today on Sunday. I've never done it before, so I guess that was ok. You're suppose to base your layout from this one (which is totally cute!), and put it in their Saturday Scraplift gallery.
So this is what I came up with!

Silly sisters

Hey ya'll! Here's another page I created! I know, I can't believe I've been on a role with creating! Well, maybe not on a role, but at least my creative juices are flowing! :)
And when that happens I have to take advantage of it, before it goes away! Otherwise, I just can't create anything I like.
These were just some goofy pictures of my sister, Jackie, sister-in-law, Carrie and I back in April. It's fun doing something random. I used more of Christina's digi sets. Lots of fun to work with! :)

Beautiful Friendship

GASP!!!! It's me!! And YES, I created a page!!!! First one in MONTHS!!! Wow, it feels good! I wanted to use some new stuff I recently got. So I thought these pictures of my friend, Bekah and I, would be fun to do. These pictures are from our recent trip to Michigan.
It had been so long since I created anything, it kind of felt foreign to me at first. But it didn't take long for me to get the swing of things again. I used some fun digi stuff from Christina's Greener Grass Designs kits.
