Merry Christmas!

Just wanted to wish you all a very happy Christmas. Here is my Christmas card this year...many of you may have received an actual one in the mail, but for those that didn't I'm sorry...either I don't know you or I ran out =). Anyway, this is my first attempt at making somthing digital without a template of some sort. I think it turned out reasonalbly well...of course the two adorable children in the picture don't hurt. Have a lovely day!

A trip to see Santa

We went to see Santa this afternoon. Emma was talkative, Bella was not. Think that happens every year. Here is the lovely overpriced photo....

And for your viewing pleasure.....found this sitting around on my computer. This was from the Christmas of 2005 I think. They have grown a bit. Have a lovely day.

Lots and lots of layouts......

I have a bunch of layouts here for your viewing enjoyment. The first is day 3 of the daily december thingy....

Next, is a bunch of layouts from a book I started making this weekend about our little mini vacation to omaha. I'm probably about half done. I did all of this this weekend. Actually didn't take too long. We first went to the Omaha zoo...

Waiting for our table to be ready for supper.....

Taking a carriage ride....

Next day....went to the art museum since the children's museum wasn't open yet...

That is all for now...a few more at the art museum and a few from the children's museum and that will be my album. Still haven't figured out how I'm going to bind it. If you have any interesting suggestions, let me know. have a good day.

Daily December

Layout #2...stuff around the house. Not sure what I'm going to do for the next few as I'm not very good about taking pictures everyday. Maybe I'll cheat a bit. Anyway, I must run....I have to take care of my 3 fighting two year olds (who in all actuality are 17, 9 and 4....hmmmmmmm). gotta run.

Happy Sunday to all

Hello everyone. Been a busy week as usual. Work has been very busy, which is wonderful, but I think it just makes the rest of life seem even more busy than usual. I spent all day Saturday going through every scrap supply that I own and purging what I didn't want. The girls were so excited tonight to see what they inherited. They are feeling like they hit the jackpot. My room looks fabulous, which I don't know if it ever has been so clean. We will see how long that lasts. Anyway, here is a layout from the Scrap Faith website. The challenge was to share what your last words would be with your family. Here is my take on the project. Go check out the other scrappers layouts on the site.

That is all for now, have a great day.

doing some digi

An attempt at digital scrapping. I this is a template, but oh well, it was super quick and easy and doesn't look too bad. I like this halloween pics. I've also been practicing my digi skills (or lack of) by making a christmas card. I have practice card no. 1 done and it doesn't look too bad. Anyway, that is all for now, had 4 lovely days off from work and enjoyed it immensely. Cleaned, organized, slept in, put up christmas decorations, bowled, ate too much, exercised too little...that about sums it up. I needed a few days, could use a few more, but isn't that always the case?

Oh...and here is that layout from the scrapfaith website if you were too lazy to go over there.

Have a lovely day.

If you'd like to see a recent layout head on over to the Scrapfaith website to check it out. Hope everyone has a lovely Thanksgiving, hopefully I'll be back in action soon.

A quick layout

Here is another quick layout I made last week....about my lovely emma.

Don't really have too much to share...just been busy with work and such. Also trying to learn a little digital scrapping. Coming along nicely. The main reason I wanted to learn was to make some Christmas cards. I think I will be able to accomplish that. Maybe I'll share sometime. Have a lovely day.

Hello all...we carved some pumpkins last night. Had a good time, here is the one I did. More later. Going trick-or-treating tomorrow evening. It is called "beggar's night" and it is the night before Halloween...kind of wierd but I guess that is the way it is done around here.

Had a good weekend, once again too short. Went to IC to watch the Hawkeyes was a good game and we finally won, about time. Went ice skating, ate ice cream, those would be the highlights. Anyway, going to run now. have a great day.

Senior Pictures

Here are some "senior pictures" (in quotes cause I think you have to be a professional or something to take senior pictures =) that I took of Tonya this past weekend. I think some of them turned out pretty well. That is all for now.
