My husband surprised me with a date at home on my birthday last week. The kids went to bed early and he cooked me a scrumptious dinner, complete with red wine, flowers, candles and some wonderful adult conversation. Just what I needed after a rather difficult week :)
I used Ju Kneipp's Some Inspiration 3 templates as well as Lisa Sisnero's Sweet Nothings collection. Everything is available at Catscrap - and the layout is linked for full credit :)
This is the reason we bought our house :) It stands higher than most other houses in our town and it gives us uninterrupted view of our glacier to the south, the mountain range to the east and the ocean to the west :) If we ever were to sell our house, I'd add at least a million $ to the price just for the view LOL
I did this for the brand new Snapshot 2012 Time Capsule Project at Scrapbook Graphics. This is for Snapshot #4. I used a lot of different Scrapbook Graphics products on this layout - it's linked for full credit :)
My younger daughter feeling like the whole world is against her. That usually happens when she doesn't get her own way :) Thankfully these moods of hers don't last that long and her beautiful smile returns :)
I used Designs by Helly's fabulous new kit Fragility ~ available at Scrapbook Bytes.
My daughters got to choose new shoes when summer rolled around last year. My older one chose pink and shiny shoes, with a pink bow, a slight heel and an ankle fastener. They are not comfortable at all, but so very pretty. She is 100% female :)
I used Ju Kneipp's amazing new Et plier...et elever ~ available at Catscrap.
My son after he managed to open the green pen he logged around yesterday - and after he got hold of one of the chocolate chip cookies his dad was baking :) He was very proud of himself, very colorful and very messy. He was not so happy when we started to clean him up LOL
...or an attempt at one LOL There aren't that many photos of my husband and I together. We decided to remedy that, and took quite a few. These were the best ones. Tells you a lot about the rest of them :)
My son has been sick on and off for the past couple of months, and coupled with some very bad weather, lots of snow and ice, outdoors time has been very limited. At the end of January the snow had gone and he was feeling good - so we went out for a walk. He had SO much fun, couldn't wipe the smile off his face the entire time :)
The first day of our summer vacation in July 2010. We were on our way to a summer cottage on the other side of the country - and, since it was a long drive, had hoped to be able to stop a lot. However, the first half of the road trip, we drove through wind and heavy ash fall from the recent volcanic outburst, and for the second half we drove through wind and heavy rain LOL At least the ocean was gorgeous with all the wind - but only I and our daring au pair (in the photo) risked going out of the car to play a little on the beach and take photos :)
I used BCD Designs' fab new Fresh Air kit ~ available at After Five Designs.
This is an old church, out in the countryside, close to where I live. We were there on a beautiful fall afternoon in 2010, and I took this photo when the sun was about to set and the moon had already risen. I love this photo :)
