Awful blogger!!!

Ugh, I have been a horrible blogger!!

What have I been up to lately? Not too much!! We've started going to the gym several times a week, either just the two of us or as a family. It's been fun! I think I can finally say that Jack has outgrown his separation anxiety! He begged to go with me to the gym today, to play in their kid area! So, I gave in, a little worried, and he was wonderful!!

My friend, Tracy asked me if I could take some pictures of her and her family for their Christmas cards. So, on Sunday, the kids and I went to do that. We stopped at Daniel Boone Homestead first but they were closed because of it being Veteran's Day, so we hit our local park instead! Little did we know that the area we spent at least an hour in was private property. We got the hint when they sent 2 dogs out after us! LOL Nice dogs, at least!! I took 518 pictures!! All on AV priority mode!! Go me!!! We got some good ones! I can't take credit for the posing, Tracy did that, but all the camera settings were mine!!

Yesterday, she sent me some of her favorites, so I picked my fave and scrapped it! It was nice inspiration to scrap something or someone that I don't normally scrap!! Change is good!


She has such a photogenic family, doesn't she? Very patient too!

I did this one for my LSS as well. It's not my favorite, but the mojo was seriously lacking at that point!


And, I just did this one tonight. That cool circle felt trim is from the new Creative Cafe from Creative Imaginations! Fab stuff!
My layouts tend to be left sided dominant lately! LOL


Thanks for reading!! I've got a lot of catching up to do with my blog hopping!! I am seriously behind!! Hopefully I can do that within the next few days!!

Beautiful pages, girlie! And you took a wonderful shot of your friend's family too...and wow, 518 pix?! Can we see the other 517? Lol!

They're beautiful! And, no, the other 517 would have tongues sticking out, dresses being lifted, and hineys shaking towards the camera! This is by far the best one! Thank you my friend, for your time and talent!!

The way you use black to frame and highlight parts of your page is very effective
