Vegas Dolphins

I played in my Scrapbook room yesterday instead of facing the stores. I did a whole 2 pages whoo hoo:)

I also bought myself a new camera and printer online at Best Buy. I picked it up today and so far LOVE IT I got to play a little with it today while celebrating my brother's and his son's birthdays. I would have taken a lot more pictures but the battery wasn't fully charged.

Rain Forest Cafe'

Had a little time today during laundry loads to do a LO. Here's my take on Creative Scrappers sketch #25
While digging for green cardstock I found scraps of the 2 patterns so I punched out circles and this is the end result. Jonathan helped with the placement of the journaling circle, he decided he liked it with the lines not matching up.

Need to Read

Okay before you go see the movie Twilight you need to read the book. I know it's a tween book but I loved it. It's very PG. My DS who's 10 is reading it now but DD who's 11 won't have anything to do with it. I think it's because I told her she could read it. She's very happy reading her Dear America books. So glad she's finally reading those. I tried to get her to read those 2 years ago, but she wouldn't touch them, then this year her English teacher tells her to read harder books and now every couple of weeks she's got a new Dear America to read. THANK YOU MRS. ALICE. Did you know that if you read for an hour a day at your reading level you can actually gain 2 reading levels in 1 year. crazy.

This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.

My Girl--Now My Girls

Here is my take on sketch 33 for Triple the Sketch. The background paper is actually 2 sheets of Li'l Davis' Endless Summer line-Sand and Surf paper. The flowers were only on 1 side of the paper, so I cut 1 sheet and pasted it on so it now has a border on the top and bottom. The flower cut outs are also from Li'l Davis' Endless Summer line called Sand Dollar. I've changed the LO since I took it's picture yesterday. I didn't like the title, so I changed it to My Girls and had my DH do the journaling on strips, since he's the one who took the picture.

Here's my take

Nuts about sketches challenge #30. Mine still seems unfinished but I don't know what else to add. I tried a title but none of them looked right. ribbon didn't seem to look right, so it's done for now.

Words to live by

Creative Therapy's Catalyst 35 is "Words to live by".
Here's mine. It's mounted on wood and sits in my office.

Yeah I had time 2 play

Well yesterday I added some music a new backround and a Layout ticker. I want to try and do 365 scrapbooking layouts in 2009. I'm so behind I really should do like 1000 but I'd be sad if I didn't reach my goal so 365 it is. Today I'm doing a LO with pictures from the 4th of July from 2003. Yikes, that's more than 5 years behind.

Halloween was fun. the kids were Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. I'll uplode those pics when next time.
