The Big 2

Well, I talked to my sister on the phone last night and we were totally missing eachother. She knows that my boys are growing, especially Parker, so I told her that I'd post these pictures of his birthday from last month. We had so much fun with his birthday this year because he actually knew what was going on and dug into his presents! So here he is.....the big 2!

Fair Time in Montana

Here is the other layout that was up for Best Of Show at the fair. It so happens that the final two were between myself and myself. I love this layout too. Fun stuff!

Fair Time in Montana

Well, we had a busy week this past week. My husband's (Jeff) brother and sister-in-law and their family came to visit for the week from Utah. We had a wonderful time together and wish that they would move here so that we could spend more time together. Geri (my sister-in-law) and DiAnn (my mother-in-law) and I went antique shopping. I found tons of things that I'd love to have but can't afford (big sigh) but we had a great time anyway.

On Wednesday, Geri and I went over to the fairgrounds to watch the judging on the scrapbooking. I had entered 7 layouts in the fair and I wanted to see how sat with the judges. Well, I ended up getting 5 first places, 1 second place, and 1 3rd place PLUS I won overall BEST OF SHOW! Yea! Here is the layout that won best of show.

I made this layout as part of a monthly challenge. This was the first layout that I've ever made of myself! It was tons of fun and I think I'll have to make more of my childhood. The title refers to the fact that my parents had tried for years to conceive until finally I came along! I used all Close To My Heart products including the Boom-Di-Ada paper packet and dimentional elements letters. Fun stuff!
Well, I'm new at this blogging thing so I'm not really sure what I'm doing but I'm going to give it a shot! Today we have all of the boys here at the house. Needless to's been a rowdy day! I just put Parker down for a nap so I have a bit of time to play around on here before I get to my other household duties!
