Birth Announcement Photo

Our challenge that was issued was to use the blue on blue stripe paper in the layout. I decided to do a page for Parker --- he is rather short on the pages that I've already done.

Cutest Quote

Im thinking this will be a good daily moto:

Bad Hair? Natures Gift?

So Fridays' challenge was about Bad Hair Days - anyone that knows my poor boys they know that their hair grows straight out.... like their father's. Anywho.... I decided to not do an embarrassing photo cause oh boy do I have alot of the mad scientist photos, I thought it would be better to remember the positive out of spiky hair!

Revised Weekly Schedule

So last year I came up with something that I could put on my Fridge to remind me of the things I should do during the day. Decided to do a face lift. Change things up alittle. I'm going to start on my family "notebook" too - which will have a more detailed list of things for the day. Plus important things concerning the house, phone numbers, paint chips, meal plans, coupons.... just a Central place for all my stuff!

Bradens 3rd Birthday Layout

Yeah so dont judge me lol... I'm finally getting some time to get some pages done that yes I so should of already done. Life gets in the way sometimes!
Anyways this is of Bradens 3rd birthday party! He is so freaking cute, sweet, adorable, ornery...
ALL BOY for sure (well except his scream --- goodness me it is horrible).

Easter Egg Hunt - Play Date

We got together last week for a Play Date easter egg hunt and lunch. Went very well! This was parkers first time to do the easter thing! The is the only photo that the majority of the kids were looking at the camera!

Prairie Dogs

So... you might be wondering what is going on with Jill, these are obviously rodents. Well, in Ponca City out towards Kaw lake there is a Prairie Dog Preserve. These little guys are so fun to watch. They are entertaining, active, curious, and well ADORABLE.
With the move approaching next year (we think) I thought it would be smart to scrapbook those things we enjoy doing as a family.

Easter.... Layout

Here is the second page to go with the first easter page I made earlier last week. I enjoyed putting this together - the boys had so much fun at Grandma and Papa Bentleys. We decided to do the easter egg hunting on Saturday since Easter Sunday was RAINY all darn day.
And yes... you will notice we are serious OU Fans --- ha ha ha ha...

Rainbow for Young Womens

So as some might know I am serving in the Young Womens Presidency here in Ponca - and was doodling around trying to learn how to use some tools - I found a tool that will bend things... and I started thinking.... the rainbow for YW's needs gold now. So I put together some different papers and then embellished it and added something GOLD =-) now there is an up to date rainbow for the YW's Program.

Parker the Vegetarian

Okay so todays Tuesday (yes i know it is wednesday at 2 AM) Freebie Scrap Challenge was to use this brown paper. I was really puzzled on what to do. Lets face it I have a crud of things to scrap about. 3 years of Bradens life, almost 2 years of Parkers life.... what did I want to do, what did this paper inspire. VIOLA .... my stick chewing, leaf eating son. He does like salad... though I think my kids will eat anything with ranch on it at the moment. Enjoy and let me know what you think!

Spring 2009 Layout Challenge

Well I'm trying to get myself back into scrapping on a regular basis so one thing that has always helped me is on messageboard they post up daily challenges.
Today it was a Spring Layout using Yellow and Green... how do you think I did?

Please forgive the mess

Sorry everyone I'm trying to teach myself how to do these darn html backgrounds and make it spiffy so bare with me for a while.

I need sleep as it is 2 am - and the kids will be up in 6 hours (if I am lucky).

So at least things are readable and functioning right now. I'll be back to dabble with things once I figure out how I want things to look.... there are so many choices when it comes to backgrounds.
Okay got the banner and backgrounds up for the Spring and Summer cause I am so not in the mood to mess with this stuff again.
Next on the list - Side Images!

4x6 Easter Layout

Here is another layout - this I think will be the easter card that gets sent out... what do you think?

Easter Scrapbook Page

So here is my easter page so far... How do you like it?

Easter Picture

Which one is your favorite?

I think this is my favorite "together" photo.

So the plan is.... take a few of these photos and make an easter 12x12 layout and a 4x6 photo card. First to send out to family and second to showcase at Oh My Heavens (.) Net
