I apologize! I have been a very bad blogger this past little while. In my defense…I haven’t actually been home all that much. We’ve been spending a lot of time out at the lake and camping and such. Last weekend was spent at my family reunion, catching up with aunts, uncles and cousins and having a total blast. Thought I’d share a few pics!

Relaxing on the beach. I always mean to take pics like this and usually forget. Now I have one!

Enjoying the water!

My brave little 3-year-old took a stab at water-skiing! I think I was more worried than he was!

Hope you are having a great summer!


My baby’s three! October 22, 2009

Hard to believe that it already been three years. I remember this day as though it were just yesterday.


And today, he is no longer a baby. Now he is a little boy…getting bigger every minute. It makes me a little sad, but at the same time I am so excited  to keep watching him grow.


Now, if only we could get the potty training thing down!

One more photo to share! I promise to return to layouts soon 🙂

life is

Heading out to the lake tomorrow for our family reunion this weekend. Today will be spent in a mad rush trying to get everything organized. Actually, the packing will be easy, but I am also going to be taking out some scrap stuff, which takes awhile to decide on the whole ‘what to take, what not to take’ debate 🙂  Hoping for great weather and lots of photo ops! See you in a week!


at the lake July 14, 2009

One of my favourite places to relax in the summer is at our cabin on Shuswap lake. We spend a lot of time out there and the kids have so much fun digging in the sand and playing in the water. I snapped this photo over the weekend…and of course used a few of the new techniques I’ve learned from Jessica Sprague! I’ve been spending so much time editing my photo’s I haven’t scrapped in a week!


More photo play… July 10, 2009

On day 5 of Frame-ups and Special Effects with Jessica Sprague. Todays lesson is playing with textures. Here are a couple of my edits.

this pic was taken using the colour select feature on my camera, so only the orange is in colour and the rest is b&w.

I finally sat down to do the first few lessons from Jessica Sprague’s class Frame-ups and Special Effects. Such simple techniques that make such a big impact! Here’s a few samples:

I love how SIMPLE it is to do this!! I honestly don’t think I would ever get into digital scrapping, but I can see myself editing my pics a lot more before I send them off to the printers 🙂
