I went to this wedding in December.  You guys sure made it a tight squeeze at the end of the year!
 I did this LO of the boy from a picture when he was 5.  He just had a fresh hair cut.  He would let the stylist put gel in his hair, but he wouldn't let me...and still won't!

 The picture of the two kids is from a picture I took for a Mother's Day gift.

Bikes!  Here is K when she got her first bike in the U.S.  Photo was taking outside of our rental in Illinois.

This is me and my dh from our last military ball.

This LO is of my current craft room, caught in the unnatural state of cleanliness.

I'm trying to expand my playground and attempt new things with out relying solely on the kit of the month club items that I receive.  I just finished a LO for a challenge at a website called CSI: Color, Stories and Inspiration

A challenge is called a Case File.  Here is what you need to follow:
Here is what I made:

For the EVIDENCE: I  chose to use a paper rosette, book papers, circles in my design, and a bird.  For the TESTIMONY: the inspiration word, READ; a top 10 list, and journal in a circle.  I figure they meant for me to write my journaling in a circle, but I took it very literally.  It was fun trying out something different.  CSI: Color, Stories and Inspiration

This morning I found out that two of the lay outs, that I did with the Scraps of Darkness March kit that had the fantastic Graphic 45 papers, will be published in the online magazine: Scrapbook News and Reviews.  This is my first time being published!  These two images will return in a month.

I haven't posted any thing again.  Let's see what I have done since the eyeball!  This is the last Lay Out that I did using my Scraps of Darkness April Kit.  I was going for dramatic.
