Last week of summer is here...

0
We just got back from Wisconsin visiting with Aaron's family. It was very good times. We spent time at the lake, boating and swimming. The kids had LOTS of 4-wheel riding with Grandpa Red. They were very sad to go.

Now we are on to the last week of summer. I made Sophie a backpack tag for school (since she is riding the bus)

Summer Almost Over...

0
I can't believe that summer is almost over. One more week until BOTH Sophie and Gabe start school. What am I going to do. Boo hoo.... Well, it might be nice right away to have a little time to myself; but I'm sure that will get old fast. Well, I am going to get one go field trip in next week with them before school starts...what should I do?

Here's a layout that I did last night at ScrapMatter's Speed Scrap (you have to following instructions and finish a layout in an hour)Turned out not bad! It is from when we went to Chicago, last spring.

Here one of Soph I took at the park. Sophie LOVES her freckles! Especially since I told her, that my grandpa called them angel kisses. If you've guess it, I have millions of freckles. So with that in mind she is delighted to have a few sprinkled on her nose....she keeps waiting for more

Been sick...

1
Most of you know that I've been sick for while now... about 3 1/2weeks now. Yep, still have that crazy tiredness and hacking cough. I just can't seem to get over this. Went to the doctor AGAIN they gave me stronger meds, an inhaler and I got to sit in LABS for over an hour to take a chest xray that I never got too (I eventually had to leave to get Sophie to an appt) Anyways, here are a few layouts I've done over the past few days (in between coughing). Good thing they aren't paper layouts! HA!

Family

0
I just LOVE my family. Sometimes I just need to say it outloud! We had the BEST time yesterday at Valleyfair, and the kids were SO delightful! They had no meltdowns, no moments of tiredness...they just plain old enjoyed themselves, which in turn makes me enjoy them ALL the more!

All that LOVE just inspire these great pages.

Ready 2 Learn? Lets make pictures better...

0
I always thought you have to take AMAZING pictures to be a good photographer. And although my photography skills are not that bad, PHOTOSHOP is an absolute dream! It is SO easy to make horribly dark pictures better. Almost all of them, including the ones that my hubbie, Aaron takes. HA! Here is an example of one that was rescued:
Photobucket
Open your picture. Then make a duplicate copy in your layers palette by right clicking on the layer of the photo, then select, duplicate layer. Then choose the top layer of the photo and move up to the scroll down, select SCREEN. Do this once or twice till your photo is amazingly lightened. Then continue with your color correcting. EASY, right?


Here is my layout that I did with these incredibly HORRIBLE photos.
Believe me ALL of them were pretty terrible. Pretty cute, huh

OK, not really. But it feels like it. Just get a few pages done in the last couple days and organizing some photos.

The new addition in our house... a piano!! $100 baby! Sophie is SO thrilled!

Over 4th of July, Gabe's friend (who is 5) started riding his 2-Wheeler with out training wheels. Well he had to do it too. He did SO wonderful. In about 5 minutes he was off on his own. Big Boy!

Getting on with REAL Life!!

0
Trying to get back in the swing of things since being back. It still seems crazy though. I started shopping for fall clothes for the kids and we registered Sophie for school today. A 1'ST GRADER!! Ahh, so weird.

Things have been busy scrapping of course. There is a grand re-opening at ScrapMatters. So this week will be a crazy scrapping week. Which is good, more pictures done and stored away!

Here are a few that I've done recently:

I have to tell the story behind this one: We just got up north and we were walking on the shoreline. DH and the kids were picking stones to 'skip rocks'. Well my DD slipped on the slippery rocks and fell in. She was SO upset that she thought she was bad and ran off... After I calmed her down and told her it was an accident I decide since she was wet already, her and her brother might as well go swimming. So I know this is going to forever be a cherished memory. "the time when they got to swim in their clothes'

I'm BACK!!

0
We are offically back! I bet you missed me right? Woow, what a week. I have been sick for the last 2 weeks now, not always the best time to take a vacation but alas that is what was planned. We spent the last week and gramma and papa's, playing with our cousins, and a couple trips up north as well.

Heres a pic for ya, we had our first family bowling night on this last rainy Friday night. OMG the kids LOVED it! Gabe asked tonight, if tomorrow we could go bowling. HA HA That would be the life to go bowling every day!

Ah, it was SO awesome!!! The kids had a blast... we had a bounce house, golf game, balloon pop game, face painting, parade!! How much more fun can you get?!?
