Lots of scrapbooking in the last few days...saw a football layout at Designer Digitals by Grantlauren's Mom and loved it, thought I would try it with Mitchell's soccer pictures. Happy to use Tiffany Tillman's  Masters Templates and it made them easy to put together. I am still practising taking sport pictures and  need to keep working on them ......

Rebecca at 16

Had great fun with this page celebrating our Rebecca's 16th birthday! Rebecca and Mitchell are our babies in the family but on days like this, we realize that they are not babies anymore. Rebecca has just graduated from Grade 10 and she is our HAPPY girl. She is lively, fun and always has crazy stories for us. Things always seem to happen around Rebecca, she is like a sparkler and gets the party going!!! We sure love her and are grateful she is in our family....

Loved this picture of Everett looking back at me when I was taking pictures of him looking out the window. He loved to see who was going by and to watch the buses at the bus stop but his favourite was to watch his Uncle Mitchell playing basketball! Of course he would rather have been out there but he wasn't quite big enough! When I saw a picture masked with a frame around it, I knew I wanted to do it to this picture and then I even found a tutorial on adding a radial blur to give it more light so that's what I did and was so happy with how it turned out. Doesn't Everett just look like he's walking out the window into a new adventure?

Sure makes me miss him though!

I am hosting a baby shower for a new little Mom that I know! She has a darling baby boy that was born a couple of weeks early and so little Aidan wasn't even 5 pounds. When Vanessa and I went to visit with them it sure brought back memories! My Danielle and Melodie were that size and they were so darn tiny...I remember being scared to bring Danielle home, not sure that I would know what to do with her. The lucky thing about Kelsey is that her Mom, Coral lives a few streets away and that must be such a comfort. I know that Coral loves having her new little grandson close especially because her other daughter Lindsay and family moved away a few months ago. I would have been thrilled to have my Mom around but I lived in Lethbridge, AB and she lived in Moncton, NB!

So I made the invite tonight for the baby shower and found a super cute invite on Pinterest. I then used some baby stickers from Crystal Wilkerson for the design and I plan on handing them out tomorrow.

I  was happy to be asked to do another wedding invitation for a lady I know in Kelowna, Debbie Card. Her daughter Allie was one of our happy kids on trek so lots of good memories there. This is a second marriage for Debbie, she is so happy and it shows in the pictures. We had some fun designing this and I learned a lot! Each one gets a little easier.... this is the final copy!

Stay posted for another Lamb one coming up!!!

I had so much fun with this page and it was much easier to put together than I thought! I used the contact sheet option in PS CS3 to make a picture grid and then made it into a wall. This was lesson 4 in Jana Morton's Blueprints: Angles of Photoshop. I knew it would work really well with all of the pictures we took in Peru.

This page brings back so many memories of our trip to Peru to bring back Melodie from her mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Thank goodness we had her as an interpreter or we would have been so lost although Don did quite well! He really practised his Spanish before we left. It was definitely the adventure of a life time! We learned so much and met so many wonderful people. It was pretty amazing to experience just a little of what "Hermana Mathieson" went through in the 18 months she was gone!

Time goes so fast, crazy to think that she is now home and happily married to her sweetheart Kevin Smith. We are so grateful for the work she did but so happy to have her home!!
