Confession: I'm taking Karen Russell's Photography Workshop, and it's seriously cutting into my scrappy time.

I have learned a ton, but I think I might be the worst photographer to ever take her class. I guess that means I could be the most improved, no? :)

I highly recommend it if you want to improve your photography skills.

Have a lovely weekend!

My newest nephew was born in June...

I made this for a Scrapdango challenge last month and realized that I hadn't yet posted it here!

Our hometown

Since I made one of these layouts for my DS, I needed to get one done for my medium DD as well!

Parent Swim Meet

I created this one about a very fun backwards swim meet where the parents competed and the kids ran the event. Our whole family loved it!

I used the July 2011 Sugar Scrapdango kit.

SCY: Student of the Month

I loved this Sketches: Creatively Yours design, and I'm still loving this Pink Paislee paper... I'm going to miss it when it's gone!

Hop over to S:CY to see the other designers' work!

SCY: Bye, Bye Baby

Ali has a special sketch this week at Sketches: Creatively Yours.

My baby is growing up so fast I can hardly believe it... she'll be two on Wednesday!

You can play along to win a guest spot... just link back to this sketch on the main site.

Have a lovely weekend!

Sketches: Creatively Yours

I am so honored to have been asked to serve another term at Sketches: Creatively Yours. Ali's designs push me to think differently about my pictures on hand than I might otherwise (and that's a GREAT thing). I hope you'll be able to play along with us soon. You can read the announcement here.

Journaling Junkie: Favorite Cartoon Character

Loved this JJ challenge... I had been wanting to get this down for a few months!

Journaling: Phineas and Ferb is by far your favorite show at the moment. You generally choose to "be" Phineas. I think you can relate to how smart and creative and fun he is. It's fun to imagine all the what-ifs of their adventures. Yes, we're all a bit P+F obsessed... watching the new episodes, even though they come on LONG past your bedtime, and listening to the songs in the car. If only summer lasted forever...!

P.S. PLEASE ignore the messiness of the room in the pic! LOL.
