Couple New Layouts

Here is another set of layouts that I did this week.

They are both from the New Collab Kit called Fruit Loop by She Creates and Jen Yurko at STO


Kassi started on a fast pitch competitive team this summer. She is on the small side and so her pitch zone is almost nonexistent which makes it very hard for people to pitch to her. 90% of the time she would get hit by the pitch instead of get a ball that she could hit. She soon got the nick name of "Target" by her team members and they had a chant that they would yell everytime that she got up to bat that said she had pee wee power and to watch out because even though she was small she had the power to knock it out. 

Logan Canyon
Zoe and T.J. had a blast playing in the river in Logan Canyon last weekend. T.J. thinks Zoe is a pretty awesome friend to have around and won't let her out of his site.

Hard to do...

These two layouts were some of the hardest ones I have ever done. In memory of my brother, Thad: This is a picture of my brother, Thad. I don't have very many photos of him especially in the last part of his life. I really love this photo though and cherish it. Thad chose to end his life after a battle with addiction and it has been one of the most difficult challenges of my life. 21 years later I still struggle with the many questions that are in my heart. Suicide is the hardest thing for a family to live through. I will always love my brother and remember him before the addiction started but I will never forget the hurt and pain that so many of us still deal with. I love you Thad. Credits: In this Moment, Inspired by Dominic Empty Spaces 3 Template, She Creates: font is Bradley Hand ITC This layout shows some of the feelings that I struggle with each day now that my brother is gone. This page is chaotic and emotional as it is that way in my heart and mind. I did two different pages to express the feelings that I feel due to his suicide. I miss him still and struggle with his decision even though it has been 21 years. Credits: In this Moment, Inspired by Dominic

School Zone

Back to school means back to a routine. As much as we all enjoy the kids home and the freedom to do a few extra things with them, it's always nice to have a little organization to your day. This little kit will brighten up your ordinary school mug shot or even your creative shot. Snap the picture of them now and then again at the end of the year and see how much they've changed right before your eyes.

T.J. taught Sierra how to play in the mud today. He painted her face and legs and arms. She was very proud of their creation!! Of course, I had to get pictures! Credits: Sept Collab Kit, Teachers Pet, GDS

Blended Templates and Paris Bistro

I did both of these layouts with the blended templates by Dana's Footprint Digital Designs at GDS and Paris Bistro by Pizzazz Pixels at HSD First is a layout called Oregon Falls: A photo of one of my most favorite things in the whole wide world..waterfalls.. aren't they truly amazing! I could search waterfalls around the world for my job if that was a possibility! This one is in Oregon. Next is a layout called Sierra: Sierra watching my son Josh playing football.. She was very intrigued!! but then, watching football is a very intense job!

Finding Treasures

T.J. absolutely loves the ocean we have discovered. He spent every minute he could discovering the treasures the sea brings to shore. He asked each day to play in the ocean while we were in Oregon.
