My first circle layout

Okay, so I always do your normal 12x12 square layout and I've been wanting to try a circle layout and found this paper that I thought would be perfect for one of Abby's graduation pictures. It was a lot of fun to play with and I'm fairly pleased with the way it turned out. I'm not too sure about the title down the side ( since Scott said - let's hope they don't read it from the bottom up!) but I think I'll leave it the way it is. I haven't decided if I'm going to journal on this one or save it for another layout. I have lots of room in the red area if I decide to. Now, I've conquered a circle layout... maybe I'll try a 6x12 or some other shape or size!!

Here's my prize

I went to The Skrappin Barn and picked up my prize today. I think it is a pretty awesome prize! It is a printer/scanner/copier all in one. A pretty good thing to have when you are a scrapper and you take lots of pictures! I can't wait to get it out and see how my pictures look printed out with it.

I won, I won!!!

I got a phone call today from The Skrappin' Barn, and I was the winner of the printer!!! They had their grand opening this weekend and while I was there Friday I bought some raffle tickets and told Abby maybe I would win me something for my birthday! I am so excited and looking forward to picking it up this week!

Something scrappy to share

I finally got a scrapbook page done! It seems like I hardly have time anymore to actually get a page made! But, I had taken these pictures of Shane in the pool and wanted to show just how much he loves to swim. The minute he sees the pool up he has to be in the water. It doesn't matter to him that the water is freezing or that the outside temperature hasn't yet made it into the 80's, he has to be in that pool. Everyone, including me, is always so envious of his tan. It seems like he tans the minute the sun hits his skin!

Baseball season is in full swing!

Last night was the first chance I had gotten of taking some pictures of Matt playing ball. It was the only double header of the season for our team. Matt did a great job (as usual!) in the field and with the bat. He is doing a great job at hitting this year. Some of the pitchers can throw really hard and fast. He may have even scored every time he was on base last night. We wound up winning both games and the last game we shut the other team out. Kenny was doing a fantastic job pitching and I think Scott said he only allowed two hits. Pretty good stuff! Baseball season is so much fun!

Happy Birthday to me!!

Yesterday was my birthday and it was such a wonderful day! It really started on Thursday afternoon when I got home. Scott and Matthew had gone and picked me wildflowers and made me a bouquet and Matthew had made me a card. Then, yesterday I got up and Abby gave me a beautiful homemade card, I got to go scrapbook shopping, Abby made me a beautiful birthday cake, the family took me out to eat, and we finished up the evening going to Matthew's baseball games. Last night was their only double-header of the season and they won both games! It was the best birthday!

Abby is officially a college student!

She and Scott spent the last two days at MSU registering and scheduling her classes. The first day was pretty overwhelming for her, but she made it through it and now has the rest of the summer to sit back and relax before starting class again in August. This has been quite the experience for all of us!
