No Design Team for me . . . yet!!

So . . . I didn't make the 4SS Design Team, but don't worry folks . . . I haven't given up hope yet. I'm planning on applying for two more Design Teams, and in 6 months, if I haven't made any other DT's, I'll try out for the 4SS DT. I was kind of bummed, but its okay. It was good practice for me. I've been trying to keep up with everything around the house, with the girls, summer school, and at the same time trying to spit out some more pages!! Some of them have been pretty good . . . some of them like the one I'm going to post . . . not so good. I love the picture, but the layout just didn't turn out the way I wanted . . . oh well!!

This, as you can tell, is a picture of Sophia checking out the sunflowers. I think this is going to be a 2 pager because I have a couple more pics that go with this one but I haven't finished that page yet.

Well . . . sorry this post was so BLAH . . . until tomorrow!!

Cleaning Mode

Today I've been in a wild clean mode! The kids' toys were driving me crazy, so I decided to put them in a small room under our stairs!! Don't worry . . . I didn't put the kids there!! Hee Hee!! I cleaned out, 5 boxes and 3 bags of stuff to be delivered to Goodwill . . .mostly baby stuff. I picked out some outfits to give to Mary for her new baby Kelisa. Now it is all sitting in the back of my car waiting to be delivered. Then I took the toys from the craft room and living room and put them in the closet room that is under our stairs. Emma thinks it is totally cool . . . I love the fact that we can now just shut the door and the toys are behind it! Yeah . . . that's for the advice, Mom!! I am currently in the process of getting a layout down featuring Sophia and Pa. This was a great one to do but I am sad that I'll have to let it go! I'm using it as my original layout to be turned into Memory Makers {a scrapbook magazine} for a contest that I'm entering. When I get it finished I will take a picture and post it for all to see.

Until then . . . have a very relaxing weekend!

Patrick took this picture in Waldport, OR during our Summer Vacation Trip.

Sophia & Papa Layout!

This is my layout that I finished tonight of Sophia and my dad!! It was kind of difficult for me to decide on the patterned paper to use . . . so I just decided to stop stressing and decide already! Enjoy!!

I had to take the picture off . . .it's going to be one that I' m entering in the contest . . . it can't be in any public domain . . . I'm guessing my blog on the World Wide Web would be a public domain!!

Sophia and the Sunflowers

So today was a little crazy . . . the kids at summer school were hyper . . . talkative . . . a little on the wacky side . . .it felt like an off day! I don't like days like that! But as I promised . . . here are the pics of Sophia and the sunflowers . . . they aregigantic and I love them!! She looks so small next to them, of course the majority of them are 6 ft + . . . it rocks!! The pic of Em I love . . . it looks like she has flaming red halo on!
Soooo big! Nice leaf!

Red headed monster "dusting" the sunflowers!!

my flowers in my garden

So . . . I was out in the yard the other day . . . armed with a camera . . . and shot these close ups of some flowers that Patrick planted around one of our trees. They aren't quite as close as Joshy can get with his camera . . . but I still think they are pretty good!! I also caught one of Soph standing next to the mammoth sunflowers . . . she looks quite small . . . I'll save that photo for tomorrow . . . until then . . .
