Pure Admiration

My girl just loves this girl. In skating, the older girls help out the younger girls and the younger girls help out the even young kids. Well, my girl simply adores this girl and she is not alone. I admire her dedication to the sport, her dedication to our club and her dedication to the other members.

I was taking the group photo and I saw her reach down and give O a little hug. I snapped this pic and my little has it as the background on her iPad. Complete and pure admiration.

Here's the sketch, I'm too late to enter the challenge but I'm sharing it anyway!


She loves this dress and I think she'll soon outgrow it. We have lots of pictures though and she wore it for two years. I'm hoping it will fit her sister next year!

It has been FOREVER since I last scrapbooked. I went on a weekend retreat and got so much accomplished!

Sketches in Thyme: summer love

My husband travels a great deal for work. He had a scheduled week home and he booked it off for vacation. I had the great (yes, great!) idea of keeping our sitter for three of those days and having him take one of our girls out each day and have a daddy-daughter day.  He, and they, were all for that. These are a few pictures of the day he had with the middle girl. They went for a long quad ride, did some fishing and had lunch at a nice little restaurant. They really enjoyed their time together!

I'm sharing this as my layout for Sketches in Thyme this week! Head over to the blog and play along for your chance to win the prize!

Let's Scrap Sketches: Snowlicious

Happy birthday, Canada! It's lovely outside today, not like the snowy day featured in my layout. We are having some friends over for a BBQ and swim later on today to celebrate our nation's birthday. Fireworks tonight will finish off another wonderful holiday!

Now on to my layout for Let's Scrap Sketches. I chose to use the left side of the sketch and make it into a quick and easy single page layout. I love that my kids love to spend time outdoors, the pictures are so much fun to scrap!

The Memory Nest: Pouty Girl

This is my last share with The Memory Nest design team but I will keep using their sketches to create, because they are so easy to use! Thanks again ladies for having me. 

My oldest recently turned 10. Wow! Double digits! I took the picture below of her and her sisters and when I zoomed into her face I was immediately reminded of a picture taken shortly after her birth. My pouty girl still makes the same face, 10 years later! 

She also approached her dad and I yesterday saying that most 10 year olds have a cell phone and could she have one. When she figures out a way to pay for it, she can ask again. She's pretty smart so I'm guessing she'll have a proposal presented soon. 

Here's the sketch! Go play!!!
