it's been a busy weekend. as most are in the month of may i suppose. with all the end of the year stuff and all. we spend our weekends at driver's ed (gulp), swim practice, youth events, church, soccer games, play dates, play practice and doing laundry. which isn't an event per se, but it sure takes up a lot of my time!
this weekend was also the all day chat at designer digitals. i was lucky enough to host a chat as well as to get a few layouts done. and they use photos from mother's day. how's that for current grandmas?? all pages can be seen here if you are having trouble reading them.
my new favorite photo. i've taken to telling the kids on every holiday that they need to pose for me. as a gift. it's worked well! i got great individual shots on valentine's day and more than one good group shot on mother's day. i'm going to start pulling out random obscure holidays like national cheeseburger day or something so i can keep getting good pics!
also a shot taken on mother's day. the page is a total scraplift of this one. no credit for the design of it but i will take credit for the photo and 1/2 credit for the cute kid.
keeping with the mother's day theme, this tells the story of my spa day. i hate the photo of myself, but of course, the girls thought i looked beautiful with my hair combed out and pulled back off my face. funny, i have several favorite photos of my mom and she isn't wearing any makeup in them and doesn't like them....but yet they are faves of mine. too bad we can't see ourselves as others do.
this was for an itunes challenge. not a recent photo but i love it. i made the swirls match her lipstick. hee!
in my spare time, i also created a 28 page retirement album for my yoga instructor this past week. i am pleased with how it turned out and hopefully there aren't too many mistakes. everyone sent thank you notes and photos and i compiled it all. we're giving it to her tomorrow night. i think she will love it.
i was hoping to update the blog banner tonight but i need a garden photo i think. it's 9:30 pm and raining. so that will have to wait until tomorrow. but hopefully this update appeases the family (and mel)
