QuickPage Exchange Challenge.

I came across a GREAT new Quick Page Exchange over at Pillow Girl Scraps.

What a FUN idea.

Anyone who creates a QP using her designs, and ONLY her designs, will be given a link to download ALL of the QP's created in the challenge.
WHAT A FUN IDEA. (I can't stop saying that...lol)

I have never made a QP, but I think I am going to try it.
Go check it out......

I am so EXCITED for my good friend KELLY.
She has been chosen as a CT member for ksharonk at Artistic Musings.
You can read all about it HERE.

Kelly and I got our start in the digital world around the same time when we were creating custom signatures for the wonderful ladies in our Mommy Group. I have to say we have come really far. When I look back at our first works, it amazes me how much we have learned.

I am really proud of Kelly, she does BEAUTIFUL scrap pages, they are always touching, and she puts a little bit of herself into every page she does.

Stop by Kelly's blog to see some of her beautiful pages, or check out her DST Gallery.

....and now I am off to work on my blog header challenge.......

I have been CHALLENGED : Update with RULES

While admiring my lovely Blog header, my BEAUTIFUL friend KELLY asked me if I had made it myself.
I had to respond honestly that NO, I did not.
I purchased a blog banner quick page kit designed by Laura Deacetis.
You can pick these up HERE at Sweet Shoppe Designs.
They are a fun little set, and I plan to use every single one of them.
Here is a preview....

Then Kelly put me up to a CHALLENGE to make my own header.
I know that I CAN do it, and I want to but I just have limited time, and these little goodies were too cute to resist, as well as SIMPLE.

I have ACCEPTED Kelly's challenge gladly, and like she said "A Challenge is a Challenge".
I have until August FIRST....YIPES......Better get BUSY!!!!
This will give me the practice I need to improve my scrapping.

Kelly has been an inspiration to me in many aspects of my life, and this has inspired me to get out there and actually USE all the wonderful digital goodies I have been hording. lol

I am awaiting specific instructions for my personal challenge and will update as soon as I have them.

I have received my instructions and now must get to work.
Wow - Kelly is GOOD at making up challenges, but MAN...She is trying to KILL me.
This is very difficult.....See you all in a few days...lol
  1. Header must have a Summertime theme
  2. Use two pictures, 1 color and 1 black & white.
  3. Use two items from 5 of your favorite designers
  4. Use a Summertime Quote
  5. Colors must be Bright and Cheerful
  6. Do a "Style" you haven't done before.
Whew! Wish me luck!

My New Brand...lol

I came up with a watermark for my Photography "business"...lol
More of a way to brand my photos so as not to have them SNAGGED....
So, what do you think?

Here is what it looks like on the photo....

Company Dodger Game Outing

Our company bought us tickets to a Dodger's day game, gave us 20.00 spending money AND paid us for the day at work.
We had such a blast!

I need MORE TIME!!!!

It saddens me that I just don't have ANY time to scrap my photos.
Between being a full time working Mom, a Wife, trying to go to the gym, and have some semblance of a HOME LIFE....I have no time to fit in my scrapping and photography....Where is the ME time???

Beach Day

It has been a while since I posted, and nothing new is really happening.
Today we are going to the beach with Grannie, Auntie Lori, and Cousins Tyler and Gillian.
It should be alot of fun, I know my Bug will have a GREAT time.
He has only been to the beach once, LAST YEAR...lol
I am excited to snap some pictures of him on my new camera down by the water.
I will update later on with pics.

OH YES....My Backdrop came in the mail yesterday, I can't wait to try it out.
I have so much to learn, but LOVE photography and have found some GREAT forums with wonderfully helpful ladies.

Here my two faves....

I will leave you with a pic I took of my Bug playing in the sprinklers at Grammie's house last weekend.

He LOVES water.

EDIT : Monday July 9th, 2007
The Beach turned out to be HORRIBLE.
It was windy, and cold, and the sea mist was ANNOYING. I got a few shots of Dylan and his Granny, but they are not very good.
I was too afraid of messing up my new camera. lol

Here are a couple of Bug with his Granny...
