I Heart Faces/A Touch of Whimsy

This week's theme at I Heart Faces is A Touch of Whimsy.  This is one of my friend's daughters.  She wasn't feeling well and I caught her in the hallway on her way home.  

On another note, I was in Colorado last week visiting relatives.  I'll post a few pictures later in the week.

I Heart Faces/Let's Hear it for the Boys

This week's theme at I Heart Faces is Let's Hear it for the Boys.  This is my husband and his father wrestling in the garage.  You would think that at 31 years old, my husband would be ready to grow up and stop wrestling with his dad.  Apparently not.  Do you know how much furniture and vases have been broken over the years?

Another 12x12 Layout

From one of the Memory Works Express Kit

Our summer is in full swing.  The only thing that is missing is rain!  It is super, super dry here.  Our state is on fire, and so are the neighboring states.  I just wish we could have some rain.  Other than that, I've really been enjoying this summer so far.  This is the first year all of the boys have been old enough to take around easily.  I did it in years past, but they were small and hard to keep in control.  Plus there was that one occasion I took all of the boys out for the first time ever and Maddie broke his collar bone.  That sort of scared me from attempting lone trips with three boys for a while.  But alas, that was almost four years ago.  

My husband is almost six weeks into his new job.  He likes it, a lot.  He is so much happier.  It's funny how it has made such a difference in our life.  I like that he gets to come home for lunch everyday.  If he didn't, I would probably be insane...with him not home until 7:00-7:30 at night.  

So far, this summer, I've been reading like a maniac.  I'm very entrenched in the Anita Blake novels.  They are soooo good.  I'm on book 10 now.  There are 20 in the series.  So, I'm halfway.  If  you don't mind blood and guts, vampires, and magic then I recommend these books.  The writing is excellent and well researched.  

Well, I guess I should be going.  I have so many pictures to edit.  Tons, and that reminds me I haven't posted any here.  Maybe I'll do that later in the week.  Anyway, enjoy your day!

I Heart Faces/From a Distance

This week's I Heart Faces challenge is "From a Distance."  This was my first photo shoot of someone else's  family.  I caught this picture from a distance using my zoom lens.  The baby was crying, and big sister scooped her up.  I caught it, just in the knick of time.  No posing, no awareness of the camera.  Just a big sister loving and comforting her baby sister.

A "Slimy" Layout

American Crafts:  Cardstock, BoBunny?:  Patterned Papers

I have done so little crafting that I am beginning to forget what manufacturer's products I am using.  I am anxiously awaiting some pictures so I can begin my beautiful friend's album.  I know you've heard me talking about it before.  I'm excited to do something girly and "unfrog" related.  We got rain again last night.  It's a big deal to us desert rats.  Facebook was lit up like a Christmas tree.  Everyone was posting about the rain.  It's that big of a deal.  People seem to underestimate the power of Facebook.  I, however, have found some very important information on that site.  All of it has not been good, some of it sad.  Very, very sad.  But, I digress.  I wish you a great Monday.  I promise to post more crafty stuff.  Hey, 2 crafty posts in a row.  That's something.  I'm patting myself on the back right now.  Just kidding.  Have a wonderful day!

How About Something Crafty

Supplies:  American Crafts, Basic Grey, and some from the May 2011 MWExpress Kit:  Bird, stickers, and flower paper (?)

It's been a while since my last crafty post.  Sorry about that.  I'm officially on summer vacation!!!  Yeah!!  It's so nice to not wake up at 5:20 a.m.  We got rain last night!  It has been 115 days since we had it.  It was so nice.  (Sorry I had to add that in.)  I made this card for a friend who had a baby.  A girl, of course, hence the pink card and flowers.  I'm going to make an album for her as well.  Ali Edwards shared a beautiful album she made for her daughter.  I love how she used different sized page protectors in her album.  I think I might have to try that.  I wish you a great day, and stay tuned.  I'll be sharing more projects as I have more time to craft :)
