Welcome to the blog!  Here you'll learn more about me, my photography, my family & a little bit of everything in between!  Grab a cup of coffee (heavy with tasty cream because drinking it black is gross) and spend a little while getting to know me & my work more.

My final layout! :)

June 10, 2007

I still can’t believe I am one of the top ten finalists! Voting has begun and will continue until Friday. I can’t thank each of you enough for your support through all of this! Remember…your vote will cost $2.00 but you’ll get a huge download of digital scrapbooking goods. Even if you don’t scrapbook, you’re vote will still go towards me getting to donate $500 to charity and then getting $1000 to start up with photography. I am seriously so grateful for each and every one of you that has voted for me so far. Thank you!!!

Here’s this week’s layout:

and you can vote for it here (just click on the word here! 🙂 )

Thanks again!!

Let’s see…what’s been happening in our world here lately.

I turned 28 on Monday. (only 2 more years until 30…I still feel like I just turned 20, how can this be?) We attempted to do some shopping, which is easier said than done with a 1 and 2 year old! I picked up a few new shirts and then we went out to eat at The Beach House here on the lake. It was yummy!

Millie is finally crawling normally and will pull up onto her knees. She’s starting to put a little weight on her legs when we try to stand her up in our laps. She’s such a happy baby and loves to squeal at her brother. She follows him around wherever he goes and loves to play in his room with him.

Mason has kept us busy! He loves to play outside and pushes his little lawnmower around everywhere. He figured out how to blow bubbles on his own today…quite an accomplishment! He also jumped and made it a couple of centimeters off the floor with both feet & of course we all clapped our hands and he thought he was big stuff!

Tyler has been busy with church and the youth group. He organized a youth group water activity (lots of water ballons/and tons of games) and a bonfire that we had last night. The teens LOVED it and I am always blown away by his creativity. We had our church luau tonight to kick off VBS (our VBS runs all summer long on Wednesday nights) and we really had quite a few people there. It was so much fun!

Want to see some new layouts I’ve been working on? I’m lucky enough to be a guest for Angela & Emily Powers this month & I’m getting so spoiled by their yummy goodies! Plus, each of the designers I create for have been cranking out so many wonderful designs here lately, I’ve been in scrapping heaven! (I’m hoping none of these are repeats, but if they are I’m sorry! 🙂 )

First…this is a layout of me and Laura & Mary. I miss getting to hang out with them and they are always on my heart. I love you both so much & want you guys to come and hang out with me one day soon so we can catch up. Life has dealt us all alot of rough bumps, but us girls need to stick together! You two mean more to me than you’ll ever know!

I hope you all have a wonderful week! Thanks again for your love and support!
