well, here is a new page I did for the cover of an "about me" album. I haven't decided if it will be 8x8 or 6x6 but we shall see, Love , love , love these colors.
Anyone watching me take these pictures must have got a good laugh. I was in my van waiting in a long line up of cars to pick up my daughter from school and to be honest, I was bored, so I picked up my little nikon and started making all kinds of faces to the camera ( yes, I'm a nut, but a happy fun nut) I'm actually glad that I did, even if the other parents think I'm bonkers, cuz I've got to try to make sure I am in my girls books too so that I am not just the voice behind the pages, but actually the face of a kind, caring ( and sometimes goofy) mom.
I used a safety pin from Michelle Coleman and a cool new alpha by Gina Miller, everything else on this page is by Kim Christensen. The cool embroidered flowers are a freebie on Kim's blog, and there is another goodie there as well! Just beautiful stuff.
I just want to thank all you guys for the nice compliments on the blog. We're pretty excited about it and it's so nice to have others share that excitement. Sounds like I may need to rent out my man to do some customizing ...LOL! I don't think he wants to be "for rent"
anyways, we've had a pretty quiet weekend around here, everyone's been taking turns with an awful cold ( fever, headache, drippy noses...) so we've been fairly housebound actually for the last week, somehow I've managed to be the only one to dodge it, so I'm just praying that I can stay healthy. Mom's aren't supposed to get sick!!! too many hugs to give and too much to get done. It looks like it may actually be warm enough outside for sticky snow today so I'm hoping to get the girls outside for a little snowman building! I'm such a big kid, I think I love that more than they do!
