I did a layout! Finally. Life with 3 teenagers and one 7 year old just sucks up every free minute that I have. I have this great scrapbook room and all the supplies but at the end of the day when I can actually sit down, I'm too tired. So, I'm determined to get back into scrapbooking which is a passion of mine. I also got a new camera--a Canon Rebel. I'm have a long way to go to learn how to use it and I invested in Photoshop. I can't wait to jump back in. So, the other night I was sorting pictures and I came across the two from Emily's birthday breakfast. We car pool to the middle school with another family and whenever someone has a birthday, we take them to McDonald's before school. This is actually her birthday from last April. The pictures were taken on my phone because stupid me forgot my camera but at least I had something. I thought I could do this page pretty quick since it only had two pictures. The title was made using my Cricut machine. I know it's a pretty simple layout but I am just thrilled I got it done and I can't wait to do more. I've been working on Liz's high school album so it will be done in time for her graduation. Right now I'm sorting all the photos that I have never organized before. I've got a long way to go but I'm getting there!
Elizabeth is up at the University of Florida right now "shadowing" some gals from a sorority. Her friend's sister just joined a sorority so they are hosting Liz and her friend for a few days. It was weird dropping her off and going home without her. She will have a blast though.
I'm hoping to finish the kids closets before Spring Break is over. Greg is begging me to drive him over to Clearwater to eat at Skyline Chili. It's a restuarant that is big in our hometown (Cincinnati) and is all decorated with "Cincinnati Things". We really miss having it close. Now if there were a United Dairy Farmers (another hometown favorite) life would be good! We went to a few Reds Spring Training games last month down in Sarasota and they served Skyline so now we are all just craving it.
Well, it's time to get my day started. Mt. Washmore is growing by the day. Happy Thursday.
