Oh, baby!

A page to share:  This is one of those old favorite photos of my little girl that I somehow have never gotten around to scrapbooking. She was just one year old here…seems like such a long time ago! (Now barely 5, she just lost her first tooth! My, how time has flown by with my

FAQs: Digital Scrapbooking

Yesterday I was responding to an e-mail from someone about getting started with digital scrapbooking when I accidentally navigated away from the page and LOST the whole thing. I about cried. It was a long e-mail, and it was suddenly floating out in Cyberspace. The thought of starting over left me dreary even before I

Perhaps my simplest layout ever

I know, there's not much to it, but for some reason, I love this page. I think it's because it really focuses on the photos and doesn't cover too much "real estate" with the fluff (scrapbook elements) I normally love so much.

Journaling: You sure are a shy little girl. You usually hold onto Daddy’s or my legs—or our necks if we’re holding you—when we walk into school or any other new place. You don’t often answer people when they say hello or good-bye or compliment you on something, even if you know well the person talking

Maybe I’m just hopeful…

…but I'd love to see my kiddos grow up to love photography.   It's a hobby in which I have fun lots of enjoyment, especially when it comes to capturing our lives in little snippets in a way that no other hobby can.  Journaling: OK, so you haven’t shown a strong interest in photography yet,

Pets with personality

Here's a recent layout to share. This is one I've been meaning to do for a while. Our pets are a significant part of our family, and I don't give them much play in the scrapbooks that document our lives. So…here we go. I'm very aware that I do not take enough photos of our

Road trip! (We thought we were crazy, but we survived)

This summer, we packed up the car and spent 23 hours on the road over two days to get out to my dad and stepmom's house in Colorado. With two young kids, many people thought we were nuts—and admittedly, we wondered about that ourselves. But we survived…and even had a little fun! Here are a

Bowling…good times!

Click on photo for larger version. Journaling: This was our first time bowling with E*** for sure, and we’re pretty sure with G***, too. We laughed, cheered and had a great time as the kids used all of their might to launch the six-pound ball toward the pins what seemed like a mile away. E***’s

A page to pass the time

Things aren't looking to quiet down soon enough around here, so I thought I'd post a recent layout to pass the time.   These photos were taken back in December 2007. (I've been revisiting some old photos lately.) G & E used to love getting buried in a mound of stuffed animals. I love the

Playing in the Rain

Photos from June 16. Journaling: Leave it to kids to make the best of a dreary situation! We were supposed to be celebrating the end of G’slast pee-wee baseball season with his teammates. Chad was coach, and we were treating everyone to Dairy Queen. The game scheduled for this night was rained out, but we
