LOAD #3

I went classic style for today’s Layout a Day!  The challenge was to focus on photography and create a layout with a photo that tells the story…no journaling!  As I’m in a bit of a journaling mood, this was actually a real challenge.  Yet, once I remembered this photo…I’ve been wanting to scrapbook it since […]

1st Order as a Studio J Member!

I’m so excited about my Studio J Membership!  I just ordered four layouts (8 pages total) for 1/2 off with FREE shipping, FREE page protectors, and FREE JPG files for the web and for printing.  Studio J membership seriously rocks! Although one of the main goals of Studio J is to do layouts quickly, I […]

Family Photos

We had a fantastic family photo shoot in Moscow at the end of July, and the CD with all the photos arrived today! I’ve been having fun playing with Photoshop and then importing the photos into Studio J. My 12-month Studio J membership starts next month, and you can be sure that I’m going to […]

More Studio J Layouts

I completed another batch of Studio J layouts and they are waiting to be filed away into albums. I love how quick and easy each layout comes together. The quality of the photos I used on the “Love Story” layout were really bad–complete user error–but the layout still looks great. I did journal about the […]

Zippidee-Doo-Da!

I finally had a chance to sit down and scrapbook some of my spring break photos this weekend! My sister and I took our mom to Disneyland in April, so I couldn’t wait to use the new Zippidee Workshop on the Go! I wanted to make this a more traditional Disney layout, so I covered […]

Live Out Loud!

We had such an incredible time doing this photo shoot in Seattle in July of 2006! I made poor Katie jump in front of the Space Needle over and over again until I got the perfect shot. I would have preferred if she had been slightly to the right in the photo, but I wasn’t […]

Celebrating Christmas

I hope you had a wonderful and relaxing holiday! I certainly did. Neal and I had a leisurely day at home with our little old fur babies. Thanks to our moms, we did have gifts to unwrap, so that was nice! My gift to Neal is doing the litter all week and cleaning up after […]

Wolf Haven

Our second day trip with Kyle was a quick visit to Wolf Haven. We arrived a few minutes prior to the tour, so it was perfect timing. Wolf Haven is a sanctuary for many wolves but only 14 are on the guided tour. We didn’t get to see all of them, but the ones that […]

Mt. Rainier Hike

I thought I was being kind by letting the boys sleep in, but it ended up being a bad move. By the time we got up to the mountain, the parking lot was full. I couldn’t believe how packed it was during the middle of the week; I would hate to see what it is […]

This is a Graduation Trip?

When Katie graduated from high school, I took her to Disneyland. We had a wonderful time, and I knew that I would do the same for Kyle when he graduated. Well, fast forward six years to Kyle’s graduation…he doesn’t want to go to Disneyland! Not want to go to Disneyland? I couldn’t believe it. So, […]
