{ethan}

Got to take pictures of my friend Shantell's little Ethan this morning! It was so much fun! We ended up with SO many awesome shots!!















The little munchkin just started crawling!! He's only 6 months old! It's so crazy to see this little guy crawl! He's so tiny for that.

Hope you like the pics Shan. I think we got some good ones. There were like 20 more cute ones I could post! HAHA

It's my mom's b-day today! The big 5-0! Tell me this woman looks 50! WHATEVER!!


If anyone in this photo looks 50 its me. Or the lurker in the background! HAHA Happy Birthday Mom!!! I love you so much! I'm excited for dinner tonight!

That's all for now!  Peace out.

{fun things}

Tangie Baxter's CT blog has a challenge going on where you have to scrap some sort of To Do list. As I was scrapping a long list of actual things I have to do, I completely scrapped that idea and decided to scrap this:




Fun challenge! Nothing I would have scrapped on my own, but it will be fun to look back on it and see if I really got to see all of those places in my life.

I'm also hosting a "quick hunt" on the SM team blog. Just go check it out.

And last fun thing of the day - I've started a Disney Digi-Scrappers Flickr Group! This is a group for all digi-scrappers who love Disney and love to scrap their Disney Pics. My hope is that it will become a place to go and look for inspiration when it comes to scrapping your Disney LOs. The pool of LOs is already filling and there are so many cute Disney creations! Warning: browsing that gallery will make you want to go to Disneyland, Disney World or on a Disney Cruise SO BAD!

Anyway - come join and post your Disney LOs!! I really want to see the group grow!!!

National Scrapbooking day is this coming Saturday. I'm planning on spending my day playing games, doing challenges and having a total scrap day at the computer! I've already warned Josh!! ScrapMatters is going to have a TON of great stuff going on! It's going to be an awesome, busy, fun day! Plan on playing along! There are tons of prizes and things to be won!! (not to mention there may be a nice little sale . . . )

So, my SIL and niece are flying out tomorrow to Indianapolis for the summer. My brother is already out there. He does summer sales every summer so they leave every summer. I hate it. We're not going to see Eden learn to walk! She's going to do it out there. :( I'm so bummed. She's going to be so big when they come back in 4 months. Boo. They have a couple visits back to Utah planned (for Marci's Dr's appointments) but still. Boo.

{new photos, new project, new LOs}

Ok first off, many of you asked what new camera we bought. I swear I posted this earlier, actually I know I did but its ok! :) We got the Canon Rebel XSi, or Canon 450D if you live outside of the US. We also bought a Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens. But man we're poor now! hahah

Ok - just a few of the pics we took today. We HAD to have an impromtu photo shoot when Eden showed up to my mom and dad's house today wearing this dress!!













Having a good camera is awesome!! Worth being poor! haha

So my new friend Ashley does this awesome "52 Blessings" project on her blog and I'm totally joining in. Every Sunday I'll post a simple LO featuring a photo of one of my many blessing. Then in 1 year from now make it into my 52 Blessings book! Isn't that fun?! My first blessing had to be my one and only . . .


I just love how positive and uplifting this project feels.  I'm already so excited to do next week's blessing.  If you want to learn more about the "52 Blessing" project click here.

Ok - let me post some of the LOs I've done this past week. I was missing my little brother this morning so I scrapped this. (he's on a mission in Chile)


Me and Eden 1 year ago on her blessing day.








Hope everyone had a nice Sunday! See ya!!

{i love our new camera!}

** If you came looking for pirate stuff, scroll down.**

4 of the 115 pics I took learning how to use the new camera this afternoon. I was so pleased that I had a few good ones. Thank goodness I have a cute niece as a test subject.

I'm proud to say this first one is straight out of the camera!



These however obviously are not!



Can you believe this young thing is a Gramsy? Love ya mom!!





I'm still fairly clueless. But its fun to try and learn.
