december daily: 25 days of advent 2 page spread

{left} Completely the idea of Shimelle.com. {right} Just after I got done saying that Santa isn’t the reason for the season…we have him at our house. I am using pieces from an Ali Edwards freebie {love her!}. 25 days of Advent: Day One. I am not sure I can come up with 25 actual days. I am working on it though…

Why Believe in God? Freebie

memories of summer

I got the idea of “memories of summer” from Ali Edwards except her version is “stories of summer”. Yeah, I scrap-lifted the idea. I love her blog. Her layouts are so sophisticated in design. 

Summertime is the quintessential season for being a kid. Carefree days of running around bare foot, playing in the sprinklers, riding a bike, swimming, staying up late and eating ice cream on a hot day…that’s the stuff of sweet childhood memories. If I think hard enough, I can conjour up memories of home-made ice cream as a kid in rural Missouri. We had one of those old-fashioned ice cream makers. Our arms would tire and our muscles ache from cranking the handle, for what seemed like hours, before the creamy-cool goodness was ready to eat. But when it was time to dig in…it was oh-so-good!

When  I was a kid, we had 2 tire swings in the backyard. Shannon and I would spend hours on the swings during the summer. Of course, there wasn’t much else to do living in the country… So, when my van tires finally gave out I saw the opportunity to turn one of them into a swing for the girls; much to the delight of my girl of summer, Alexandra! I am sure this tire swing is going to be a favorite of her and her friends this summer.

digilayouts and logos

This last few months have been so crazy. I haven’t had time to update my blog. Here is a few layouts I have been working on and a logo I designed for Alex’s school for the Elementary level. The concept is to promote their slogan for the Elementary kids. I also designed the Middle School version (although it’s not my favorite).

The girls and I always bake cookies for Christmas (just like about everyone else does this time of year!) but this year was each got our very own apron! Alex got hers when she went to a baking birthday party, I got Parker’s at Target and a client made mine. So cute!

Yep, Alex using my digital camera without asking. She should know better than to leave the evidence on the camera! Can you guess what she got for her birthday? Now she just has to learn to use her new camera.

This is a freebie template I found. I am framing it to showcase some of my favorite pictures that I took from 2009.

Years ago I would take 20 pictures on Christmas Day but now I take very few. This year I only took 4 pictures…I just sat back and enjoyed the chaos!

My little figure skater. She hasn’t decided how far she wants to go in the sport yet but she loves it any day she can get on the ice. Olympics 2018? Who knows. And we are so excited about the Olympics next week…Go Team USA!

My little ham…Grandmaster Parker-P!
