Off to a Crop..

Hi All!  I've been very busy here and haven't had time for posting.  I've been preparing for my weekend long crop in the mountains!  I'll have three days of scrapping without any interruptions.  I'll be back Sunday.  I'll have plenty of work to share with you!  Enjoy your weekend!

Happy Valentine's Day

Just wanted to wish you a Happy Valentine's Day.  My kids have eaten their way into a sugar induced coma.  Not really, they're actually wild like animals from all of the sugar.  But, tomorrow, I will be throwing out all of the candy so I hope they enjoyed it.  My life is so full of love, and I am blessed.  I'm wishing the same for you.  Happy Love Day!

This Boy...Revisited (in a layout)

Papers:  Cosmo Cricket, Jenny Bowlin, Ticket:  Tim Holtz, other supplies: from a Recent MW Express kit (can't remember...January?)

Some of you may remember this post.  Talk about a bad day.  But I knew I wanted to put the photo of Maddie in timeout into a layout.  I finally did it.  Maddie is doing so much better since he started Kindergarten.  We haven't had any repeat episodes of this proportion so maybe he is finally catching on.  This year, he has a really good teacher.  His teacher and I worked together in first grade for a long time, and we also went to college together.  I think having a really good teacher makes such a difference in your child.   

On another note, it's finally getting warmer here.  Next week it will be in the 70's.  I am so excited.  I'm so over cold weather.  I hope you all enjoy your Saturday.

Sketchy Saturday

For a 12X12 layout.  The large green square is 11x11.  Pictures are 2x3.

Here is a sketch for you today.  I'm going to be off to the store in a few minutes to stock up for Super Bowl snacks.  We're not doing anything special, but I live with 4 boys (including my husband).  They eat like animals.  My refrigerator was decimated this week with the bad weather.  I wasn't expecting  three days at home.  I was going to go out for lunch yesterday, but didn't have any car seats.  My husband took two of the kids to work last Friday because they were sick, and we forgot to put them back in the car.  So we had to settle for Ramen Noodles.    

So that is all for this post.  Enjoy your day.  And, if I don't post tomorrow enjoy the Superbowl/Your Crafting time :)

Another Newborn Photo Shoot

I just wanted to share a few pictures of this cute little baby I took.  If you want to see more pictures, then go here.  (My Photography Blog-there are tons more).  On another note, we are having freezing weather.  So cold.  We've had not had school for three days because of electricity shortages, water lines freezing, and natural gas shortages.  I cannot remember it ever being this cold here.  Well, enjoy...

Snowed in...So How about a layout?

American Craft Papers and Letters, Stickers:  Pink Paislee?
Cute little drawings:  Maddie

Maddie drew some little characters last year.  I saved them all so I could put them in his scrapbook.  I decided to incorporate them into the Christmas Layout rather than do a page for just them.  It was a timesaver.  And yes, Christmas, I know.  But it is snowing here, and the temperature is 18 degrees up from 9 degrees this morning.  BRRR...very cold for us folks here.  So it's sort of like Christmas especially since we got a snowday!  I created these photo collages with Layer Masks in Photoshop Elements 8.  And, I've been thinking recently that I might do some tutorials for using Photoshop Elements and Photoshop.  And, maybe some tutorials for shooting in Manual Mode.  If you are interested in this, please leave a comment on this post with what you would like to know.  

I will share some pictures that I took today, maybe tomorrow.  It just depends if I can get them edited.  There aren't too many because it is FREEZING outside.  I mean COLD.  So I only snapped a few until I was too frozen.  The kids last about 5 minutes at a time.  We have no snow clothes.  It's really cold when  you go out in flip-flops.  Yes, yes I did.  I think the neighbor who was walking his dog thought I was insane.  But hey, you can't please everyone.

Don't forget if you're interested in the tutorial idea.  Please leave a comment at the bottom of this post.  Thanks Guys!
