Digital scrapbooking: Getting started

Ever thought about giving digital scrapbooking a try but didn't know where to start? I hope that my new series of posts here will help! I absolutely love digital scrapbooking, and I'm so excited about the idea of getting other people (in addition to my friend Michele, who is already) hooked, as well! So let's

If at first you don’t succeed…

Here is a long-overdue spread! I have been wanting to scrap these pictures for some time, but the thought of weeding through dozens of photos from this day held me back. I finally got over that, though, and made the plunge. This page took me two nights, only because my computer crashed mid-layout last night.

A day in Shades

We have been quite busy lately, and I have lots of events and little things happening that I want to scrapbook and/or blog about. Here is one of those. Last weekend, we went to Shades State Park and thoroughly enjoyed a creek hike. I absolutely love creek hikes; they remind me of lots of enjoyable

101 Things I Love

Remember this topic? A while back, I started listing on my blog 101 things I love and don’t. It was a working list that I never quite finished here. But I have been, here and there, adding to my “things I love” list offline, and I finally finished it last night! I figured if I

10 years!

Ten years ago today, we did this: (My apologies to Madeline Price, the photographer, who retired a while back. Don't know how to get a hold of her for permission, so I'm saying a prayer she won't mind that I posted this!) Anyway, this is now — or at least, it's what we looked like

A little bit of chaos

The lower photo on this layout just makes me laugh. It is a pretty clear representation of the chaos that ensues when you mix five young kids, two adults, four animals (at the time) and a small space. (This was last year. When we get together now, there are four kids and five animals!) I'll

Summer rides in the bike trailer

Another page to share! And it's another from 2007. Not sure why, but I've been in the mood to scrap some older pics of the kiddos lately. Enjoy! Journaling:One of our favorite summertime activities is going for a bike ride. Daddy often goes on long rides (sometimes 20 miles or so at a time), but

Stretching with Daddy

Just another page to share. Not much to say about this one, other than the kiddos decided to stretch with Chad before he went out for a run. This is back in 2007. A fun little memory. Enjoy!

Flippin’ out

A new page to share: Yesterday, the four of us participated in Outrun the Sun, a fun run/walk to benefit melanoma research. We were there to support a friend of mine (and the sister of my best bud, Michele), who was diagnosed with malignant melanoma at the age of 32. (Wear your sunscreen!) Anyway, at

Going under cover

Ah, building forts. I'm sure you probably did it as a kid, as did I. There's something about hiding and playing in one's own personally designed hide-out that appeals to little kids, and mine are no different. Wanted to share my newest layout. Enjoy.  Here's the journaling: There is something about building a fort that

A day part crazy and part lazy

Here's a recent page I did about an old topic I blogged about back in July 2008. I'm trying to cover some 2008 topics before moving onto more of 2009. Otherwise, I might never get back to those! Anyway, a page to pass the time. Enjoy. Here's the journaling: There wasn’t much special about this
