Disney World 2009

I just posted this LO over at Let's Scrap based on their sketch that posted for this week. It came along just in time to do a layout of our weekend trip to Disney World a couple of weeks ago. Here are some details:

I kept it simple and linear which is more comfortable for me (more my style), but in the interest of growth, I will stretch and reach out of my comfort zone from time-to-time like with the LO I did for "We Are..." posted below.

A New Layout!

I finished a layout today that I call, "We Are..." Scrap the Girls website is devoted to layouts of just the girls, and was the perfect place for me because we have an abundance of women in my family (the very strong women in my family outnumber the men by a wide margin). So I decided to do a layout in tribute to the women who have been the greatest influence in my life.
Here are some details.

That's my Mommy!!!

I used my August Studio Calico kit to do this LO and it had some great rubons in the kit. Look at the bird above!

I was also diggin' the metal sayings from Making Memories, also included in the kit!

Temple's 1st Day of 1st Grade - A Digi LO

I am so proud of my girl. She is funny, sweet and so very smart. She loves school and eagerly waited for the first day. I'm taking a mini-breather from scrapping, but I had to at least do a digi LO of her first day.

Best regards and Happy Scrapping!

The Sprecher Project!

On my left side bar is the other project that I did for my other co-worker, also named Steve. He had this project done for his wife who was celebrating her 40th birthday today (and he was throwing her a surprise birthday party). When I presented Steve with the finished product yesterday, it actually bought him to tears! He then had to tell the stories behind the pictures--and that is the reaction that preserving memories through the pictures is meant to do. I, of course, included journaling spots on all of the layouts so that Lori can record her memories and feelings behind each of the events. I really felt my job was done because scrapbooking should evoke strong memories of the special moments in time, and this definitely includes the everyday moments as well. He felt that this gift was the very best gift that he could give his wife! He also felt he would not be able to wait until this evening to give it to her at the party--I told him he had to, but I'll find out on Monday if he did wait!!!

Best regards and Happy Scrapping!

Catching Up!

OMGoodness, I have been super busy in the last few weeks. I spoke about a project that I was doing for a co-worker who'd just undergone emergency surgery and whose wife was having a baby around the same time. Well Cooper is here and he is beautiful! Steve is also fine and is back at work. Remember this kit that I talked about a while ago? Check out the baby scrapbook album on my left sidebar that I did of Cooper. You'll notice that there are no pictures, save for a few because we simply didn't have any--The ladies that I work with asked me to do it for Steve and Kathy, so we will leave it to Kathy to add the pics! It was a great project and this kit made it easy because everything coordinated! Though Steve is back at work, he still has not seen the album because he's been traveling for work. He's back on Monday, so we will be able to present it to him then.

I also worked on an album for another co-worker who also happens to be a Steve. His wife is celebrating her 40th birtday today and he is presenting her with the album that I did for him. This time I had pictures! He was quite moved by the finished project. I will be posting those pictures tonight when I have a little more time to make a slideshow for it.

Yesterday was Orientation at Temple's school. Her new first grade teacher is Mrs. Polen and she told Temple that she'd heard a lot of good things about her, one of which is that Temple was quite tall! Mrs. Polen was told that Temple wasn't much shorter than she--they say a picture can speak a thousand words!!! I also had to get a picture of us at Temple's Desk!
Work has been interesting as well. The bank I work for has just acquired another bank. I work for the Regional Bank Manager for our region in North Florida, and this purchase has doubled the number of branches that she will manage. This will also double our workload! I think it will all be exciting!

Well, I gotta go--it's already after 12 noon and I got a girls' afternoon date with my good friend, Valerie!
