  1. This is my husband and son while they were mucking out houses that flooded during Hurricane Harvey. I'm so proud of them, for the hard working, strong, capable, service-minded people that they are. This layout is part of THIS recoloring tutorial.

  2. Isn't this girl the cutest thing you've ever seen? She had such a fun summer at the lake surrounded by cousins.

  5. I have been known to avoid them on occasion as well! But once you get going, they really are fun to play with. I like to just use one or two to alter premade papers mostly. Here's a tutorial with the easiest method for recoloring that I've found: https://scrapgirls.com/all-posts/quick-color-schemes-for-templates. Let me know if you have any problems following it!
  6. I just love blending different papers and Scrap Simple templates together. The music/vellum/painted teal background is actually a combination of 3 different papers. You can see how I came up with it HERE.

  7. I had never seen fireflies until we traveled back east last summer. And then this spring while camping just a few minutes from our house in Houston there were swarms of them! It was the coolest thing watching the kids chase them through the woods. If you want to learn more about the cool photo frame/mask check out this tutorial HERE.

  8. I never thought I'd have an athlete. Band, orchestra, theater, debate club, academic decathlon, chess club...I was prepared for any of those. But when she announced one evening that she was going to try out for basketball, I was shocked. She had always refused to play sports of any kind. When I found out that practices started at 5:30 AM I thought she would quit. But the first time I saw her play, I saw things in this child that I didn't know existed. Grit. I always knew she was stubborn, but that deep down determination to pick herself up off the floor and get right back in the mix of things - that was new. Basketball was never something I would have picked for her, but it turned out to be one of the best things in all of Junior High.

  10. William got several shots at his last doctor visit. When the nurse was done, he asked for 2 extra bandaids - one to put somewhere visible so everyone would know he got shots (they were in his thigh so no one could see those bandaids) and one for me to wear so I wouldn't feel left out. If you want to see how I put the little pictures into the View Finder slide, you can find that tutorial HERE. I used" Effortless Collection Biggie Scrap Simple Tools - Styles: Shadow Me 6301
