Faith Sisters Speed Scrap Schedule

I'm loving speed scraps lately, and I've been really enjoying the speed scraps at Faith Sisters. Pushing me out of my scrap box. Here's the schedule for the entire month of July. I'm gonna try to attend as many as I can to get some pages done quickly. Hope to see you there!

Olivia reading on a Sunday afternoon when our power went out . . . the moral of the story here is that you CAN be entertained without the computer or the television. :o) Love that my girl loves to read!

You Rock

At the lake last week, Daniel wanted to play in the sand and it was burning my feet. He was oblivious. He is hard core. I just stepped back into the grass and snapped a few pics. Whew!

My layout "Beyond Borders" made the DST GSO . . . check it out here: Digi Shop Talk.

I also made the Gallery Standouts Blog on June 23rd with my "Day At The Lake" layout: Gallery Standouts Blog

And finally, last but not least, my layout "Heart of Summer" was featured on Jessica Sprague's site: Birthday Bash Day 4.

It's been a great scrapping week! Just had to share!

Ahhh, this is me, nearing 16 years ago. In some ways, it seems like just yesterday, but in other ways it seems like another life ago. It's hard to remember life without children. :o) I'm slowly but surely working on our wedding album . . . so you'll see these older pics scattered in my layouts from time to time.

tough guy

This is Daniel in the car on the way to go swimming last Monday. He thought he was so cool because not only was he wearing his Spiderman sunglasses, but he got a Spiderman float for the pool as well. That's how he rolls . . .
