Scrapbook Monday- Good thing there's digital...
I think I am slowly getting things back in order from our vacation. The laundry is almost caught up (if that is really possible), there is once again food to eat in the house, and the lawn is mowed. Of course there's still some weeding that needs to be done and the house never stays clean for long, but there's always tomorrow!!
I spent several hours Sunday evening working with MDS and my vacation pictures. Since I am making pages for three separate books, I was not about to do this the old fashioned way...
Today's page features the very first pictures I took. Now, I knew I would have hundreds of pictures by the time the week was over and that the girls would be pointing out things that they wanted photographed. I did not however, plan to take many pictures before we even left Indiana! We left around 7:30 in the morning and we were almost out of the next county when the girls noticed the cooling towers from the power plant. They both thought it was a nuclear plant, so we explained that this plant burned coal and the huge towers were cooling towers and the white puffy stuff was not smoke, but steam. They needed a picture of the tower. Less than 15 minutes later, I was getting the request for the cool bridge we were getting ready to cross. Hmm... not even an hour on the road and I had already taken several pictures! Thank goodness for my digital camera and a rather large memory card!
I am keeping the pages rather simple at this point. While I like the pictures I took, they are merely reminders of our surroundings on the road trip. Plus, there's not a lot to be done when they are rather random pictures. I may still go back in and add some embellishments before I get them printed. I am still on the hunt for some wonderful digital Disney things and will attack those pictures at a later date.
On a side note... I have to share my recent mishap. We spent an entire week in Sunny Florida. Lots of time outside in the sun and thanks to our precautions, we didn't get burned. Actually, you couldn't really tell that we got much sun at all. I repeat...A WHOLE WEEK IN FLORIDA...with a red head and an older DD who is fair complected. Get where this story is going yet? Well, Sunday, my youngest DD was walking with the Girl Scouts in a local parade. The rest of us sat in our camp chairs to watch her...in the sun... She had sunscreen, we did not. Guess who is now a lovely shade of red... Yep! I will have the most lovely farmer's tan in a few days. So now we are doing the whole aloe gel routine and from now on I am carrying a tube of sunscreen with me in my purse. Doh!!
Well, I hope everyone has a great week and hopefully I will be back later this week with another post! Happy crafting!!
