Double Trouble

This layout is of my daughter and her buddy who had fun playing with ashes on our camping trip...what a mess! I used a sketch from 52 sketches, 52 weeks for this one since I had lots of photos, it worked nicely.

I am also trying to use up my ever-growing paper stash so I broke out some old scenic route for this one. I just put in a HUGE order from Close to my Heart from the new catalogue - so much fabulous stuff - so out with the old - in with the new.

I made this card using a sketch from 2 sketches 4 you...though I did stray a bit from the sketch:-) And seriously though, I don't know why I keep making cards, they take me almost as long as a layout does:-) This card is going to my brother in law - he GAVE me a zoom lens. Still can't get over that. What a guy!

Most supplies are from CTMH!!

Photo Shoot

I did a my first "photo shoot" for a friend of mine of her family and I wanted to share her little guy with you here. Isn't he adorable? Please feel free to leave me any suggestions too! I love trying to improve my photography on my own but secretly I dream of some amazing photographer taking me under their wings and teaching me everything they know...sigh...wouldn't that be super?

Happiness is .... Family

I used sketch #32 from 52 sketches,52 weeks for this one. I was asked to take pictures of a friend of mine's family down by the river so I got thinking how my family doesn't have any recent photos sooo I brought my family and used the timer to take a few of us too:-) I am NEVER in my photos since I am always the photographer that I am really trying to hand the camera over now and then! As always, click on the image if you want to see it bigger:-)
