I prepped the boys all week, especially Easton, about getting pictures taken - they both had too much fun in the water to stop for mom to snap some shots. Luckily, the few I got I really like. Matt and I both saw the yellow sign and immediately knew that had to go in the picture! Perfect warning about our boys!
We spent the afternoon at the beach - photographing one of my best friends and her family! Kirsten and I met in college and have been friends for 11 years this month! I can't believe it has been that long. Despite the rain, we were able to get quite a few pictures!

One of my tables of guests...
Here is Margie, a Longaberger basket weaver, putting the handle on one of the eight baskets she wove at the event.

This is Jody Ferlaak - she and her family have an amazing story...I recommend to everyone to take the time to read about her! She is fairly new to the scrapbooking world, but was a SOY finalist! She has a real spunky style that totally matches her personality!
This is Becky Higgins - I tried about 4 times to win her new idea book(a Sketches book), but had no luck (I think maybe someone very close to me won, and I entered her name!!).
I was thrilled to meet these two great gals! I first talked to them at the Creative Imaginations party, and then was honored when I won their new organization book (me? need organization??). This is Aby Garvey and Wendy Smedley - so friendly and sweet, and just down to earth gals!! Be sure to buy their new book - it is AWESOME!! Hopefully, it will help me out!
This is Christy Tomlinson...she was once with Chatterbox and now is a part of the Making Memories design team as well as Better Homes and Gardens scrapbooking magazine. I have bought some awesome class kits from her! She is a mom with lots of kids!!! Awesome personality and just sweet as can be!
I was also fortunate to meet CD Murkowsky (Creating Keepsakes SOY - scrapbooker of the year), Kelli Crowe, Rebecca Cooper and Jennifer Ditz-McGuire. All so nice and each took the time to talk to us! What a blast! It's amazing all the talented women out - and just so sweet!
Have a good one!

This is the cover of my American Crafts album. It is a 3-ring album, and I love that I can mix up the sizes of my page protectors within the album (for this one, I used 12x12, 8.5x11, and 6x12).
One of my favorite rubber stamp companies is Fancy Pants - the large stamp in the top right corner is from one of their big sets!
This page also has stamps by Fancy Pants...
This is one of my favorite photos from our entire trip - my little guy did not like the ocean at all - so he and I spent the entire afternoon building sand castles together! It's hard to see, but he sat on a towel the entire time with his feet wrapped up under him - he was unsure of the sand as well!

I've always enjoyed photography, and last winter, I shot my first wedding! I was so nervous, but the pictures turned out great (and the bride loved them, which is always good!). Since then, I have done numerous senior photo shoots and family shoots.
I will post some sample pictures later!
Thanks for stopping by!!
