Pirate on Parade

For the school's fall party, the kids got to dress up in costumes and walk in a "parade" downtown. My daughter chose to be a pirate.

Squeaky Clean

My son has always loved bathtime and will stay in the water to play as long as I will let him!

Ohio Caverns (Son's Album)

This was my son's first trip to Ohio Caverns.

Pray (Son's Album)

When my son gets mad and throws a tantrum, he sometimes folds his hands like he is praying. It is so funny!

Pumpkin Cleaning (Son's Album)

Here is my son and daughter cleaning out the inside of their pumpkins. They were trying to get the seeds out to bake them. My son was scared of the inside of the pumpkin so I put some "slime" on his hand to show him that it was ok. After that, he stuck his hands in, but was never too thrilled about it as you can tell by the look on his face in the pictures.

Chuck E Cheese's (Son's album)

My son loves to go to Chuck E. Cheese's and this is a layout of one of our visits.

Chuck E Cheese

This layout is for my daughter's album. I took her and my son to Chuck E Cheese and they had such a great time. The closest one is almost an hour away from our house so we don't get to go very often, but when we do, they always have so much fun!

Play (Daughter's Layout)

Here's my daughter's layout for when we went to the playground. Her and her brother had so much fun!

Play (Son's Layout)

I took these pictures while the kids were playing at the playground during the summer of 2007. The playground is one of the biggest I have seen. There is so much to do and they *LOVE* to go there!
You can't tell in the picture, but the circles are stuck down with pop dots and stick up off of the page and "Play" is glittered.

Project 365 Challenge

So, I have made up my mind and am going to *try* to participate in the 365 Project challenge from start to finish. For those of you who don't know what this is, basically, you take a picture a day of anything you want, for 365 days and scrap them. You can make 365 layouts (one for each picture), a weekly, or a monthly layout. The choice is up to you. I will most likely be doing daily and weekly layouts. I took my first picture of the New Year last night at 12:01 am of my 2 kids to start off my album in the right direction. I still need to get them developed though. I think this is going to be a fun but very challenging project. I may give this album to my parents as a gift when I am finished. I think they would *love* it!

Also, before I forget...Creative Keepsakes is also selling a kit that include everything (well, almost everything) to get you started. The kits are sold out right now, but more are supposed to be on the way. I personally didn't buy one since I have enough scrapping things in my stash to start my own scrapbook store, lol, but I think that it would be a great buy! If you are interested, here is the link: is the link to a very sweet lady's blog. She is offering the chance to win this kit for free! Please check it out and leave her a comment or 2!

Poor Me

Here is my son with his "I didn't get what I wanted! Oh, poor me!" face. Doesn't it just break your heart, lol?


I love this picture of my son. I based the colors for this layout on the shirt he is wearing. It has a red clam on it so I used the sea theme also.

Dandelion Seeds

Here is my son in our back yard blowing dandelion seeds. I just love these pictures of him! Once I showed him how the seeds would float away if you blew on them, he ran to each one, picked it and blew the seeds as fast as he could. It was so funny to watch him. I especially love his lips in the middle picture.

Cards for Card Swap

Here are 2 cards I made for a card swap that I am in. The first card had to contain black and bling and the second one contains scarlet and scallops.

Christmas 2005

Just a simple layout of my daughter at Christmas time, 2005.
