Today - Tomorrow - Forever, My Friend

Today Paul and I are celebrating our 15 year wedding anniversary. I decided to do a page about it. The design of this layout is inspired by some of Megan Klauer's recent layouts. I love how she has used so many different patterns of paper on one layout - - so I gave it a shot.

We celebrated our anniversary by doing what we do best, spending time as a family - - outside. We didn't do what most people do to celebrate an anniversary. We didn't go out to eat or to the movies or spend money on unneeded gifts. We went. . .froggin'. We took Skyler and two of her friends on a frog hunt and had the time of our lives!! We haven't laughed that hard in quite a while. A lot of mud and laughs later we walked home and hosed off. I have some pretty good pictures I will have to scrap some time later.

Supplies used: AC (American Crafts) Thickers (letters and numbers), AC cardstock, Maya Road ribbon, We R Memory Keepers and Basic Grey (papers), vintage buttons.

We Won!!

Skyler and the rest of her team were SOOO excited when they won it all!! I tried to capture their excitement in the pics, but some of them were running around so fast I never did get a good picture :-)

Whoo's Your Daddy?

Since Paul got to help coach Skyler's team I have a few pages in mind I want to get scrapped. This is the first one - was super simple and quick - but get's the job done.

You Grow It - - We Mow It

The other day when Paul and I were doing our weekly in-town mowings, Skyler took the camera from my purse and snapped some pics. Paul and I used to mow at least 3-4 nights a week from the time we got home from work until dark. Now that we are in our mid-30's, we have decided to cut back so we only mow one day a week for a couple hours. But when people ask how I got the muscles in my arms and stay in shape even though I eat a lot, I guess this is one of the reasons.
Materials used: Megan Klauer Felties (mushroom and center of sun), Cosmo Crickett papers, My Mind's Eye papers, Thickers, metal letters, Maya Road ribbon, notebook paper.

Way To Go Taylor Ridge Girls

Got to watch and cheer last night as Skyler's softball team kept their undefeated record and won 1st place!! Skyler had another home run last night and finished off the season with the most home runs on her team - a whopping 14 home runs including 2 grand slams - she is an awesome hitter and when she runs it is hard to keep track of her. It didn't hurt that Skyler had her own Dad to help out coaching the team!! The fact that I got to watch them both in action made it that much more fun for me - - I can't wait to get all these pics scrapped. . .

Photo Art Initials Order

Here is my latest photo art order I filled. This is for my friend's son's room. His initials are "CDH" as you can see in this order. She wanted to try a red matte and some more sporty letters.

7-8-9 @ 10:11:12

Decided to participate in Elizabeth Kartchner's challenge - thought it would be a fun little break to my work day. Not a very "fun" pic, but that's all I got. Thought I should clarify that I wasn't able to post this at the right time as my work frowns on me updating my blog while at work. . .party poopers :-) Had to wait till I got home to post this.
