I love my creative friends

I just have to say thank you to Lisa (and Amy) for being so brilliant and creating this spread. Sometimes my brain just doesn't function and that is when "scraplifting" comes into play. I had done all of Ava's "month" pages from 5 mo. to 12 mo. except this one. I just didn't love the pictures and so had no motivation to scrap it. But now, thanks to Lisa and Amy, I love this spread. And I now love the pictures too. Thanks my creative friends! What would I ever do without you?

So what do you do with all the "random" pictures you take? Well, I decided that I would just do one spread of my favorites. These were from our time in Hawaii, 2002-2003. I think that these pictures paint a very clear picture about how life was when we lived out there. Obviously I had total and complete control of the situation.

I liked it so much that I will probably do something like this for every year. Not only of the kids together but one spread for each child. Sometimes there just aren't enough to do an entire spread...but I think this way you will get a snap shot of them for the year. So, we'll see how it goes. I do have plenty of random pictures that need something done with them.

Ava - just born

One of those pages that is SO important that I never want to do it. I'm happy to have it done, and to like it. Amazing. Simple and sweet. We didn't have the best pictures from the hospital - so not bad considering the pool I was choosing from.
