Fun Night w/ Friends

I had to sneaked a few things home. Jeanne will never miss anything! Just kidding.

I want to give a great big SHOUT OUT to Jeanne Pellerin. Jeanne and I go way days. We were sorority sisters (AOII at UL) and we actually live next door to each other at our apt. complex. Anyway, we met up back at Janet's old store when Jeanne moved back to town and she is such a fun and crazy gal. She was on the TM design team this past year and she had a get together at her house and all I can say is OMG!!!! Her studio is fabulous! Equip with everything possible that you would need to scrapbook and more! I want to Thank her for including me in her group. I had a blast with her and the other girls. We laughed so much and I even drank a Lemon Martini (thanks Lisa for the introduction) and guess what I even cranked out a whole 4 layouts. A few of them were very simple, but I think that is way okay every once in a while, or all of the ever you feel like scrapping.

Happy Thanksgiving

To all of my Scrapbooking Friends and Family
Thanksgiving Friends
Thanksgiving is a time
For reviewing what we treasure,
The people we hold dear,
Who give us so much pleasure.
Without you as my friend,
Life would be a bore;
Having you in my life
Is what I'm thankful for!
By Joanna Fuchs
I haven't posted any pictures of Drew lately, because he's really not into taking pictures right now...going through a phase I guess(which I'm sure will last well into High School!)
This is a little ham when he's not being a little devil! I always have to take a million pictures just to get one of him smiling. Oh Happy Day! My next layout is going to be one of him titled "Complicated Order" for the ones of you who have seen Bon Qui Qui you'll know what I'm talking about...for the ones of you who have not then you have got to go to You Tube and check it out!

This is the one and only layout that I have done for myself in a really really long time. I had tons of fun using the Crate Paper line, everything on the page except for the ribbon is Crate Paper. Enjoy and I hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!

Marbles Anyone???

Okay, as you all can see I am so bummed that I didn't get to take Karen Russell's class. So bummed that I had to try out my camera and see if I could do anything cool with it. I have never taken a digital photography class and from my pictures you can probably tell. From one of Karen's comments she said she wasn't into photo editing (she is def. my kinda gal!) Though the things that you can do in editing is awesome...I just don't have time to fit that into my schedule.
Tell me what you think. I like the way that the camera is not focused on Dax but the marbles. Kinda cool.

Calling Connie...Janet...Melissa...Monica can't wait until we get this support photography meeting on our books!

What a Beautiful Time of Year

Dax and I took the day off from work and school to spend some quality time together. We went to the pumpkin patch, which was Dax's first time and he had a pretty good time picking out a pumpkin. As you can see with the help of mom he picked a nice, bumpy pumpkin.
Here it is the one and only pumpkin that stole our hearts!

Well, I wasn't able to take Karen Russell's photography class, which I'm really bummed about that....but look ...I somehow got it right, whatever I did. I blurred the background. I love this picture of Dax!

In just a few days I will be teaching the November Calendar/Sketch class. I am so excited that so many of you are able to take the class. I know that it filled up quickly, but I promise if you are on my waiting list I am trying very hard to fit everyone in. Thank you all for the exceptional response to this class. I am enjoying each and every month with you all!
