My latest projects

So, I have been slacking in my scrapbooking for a while.  Only putting out about a page every two months... terrible I know.  Anyway, I have been trying to catch up with some old pictures I already had printed out.  This one is of my son, he got a police man playset for Christmas but he put the handcuffs on himself along with the guns and badge hence ...  "Smooth Criminal"  :)
Now this second one is from Halloween of '09... I told you, I've been slacking.

I drew the spiderweb in the corner with a opaque marker, and cut the one overlapping the picture by hand, along with the cloud.  The rest was done on my pazzles.

Today's photo..

So today was pretty uneventful.  I did manage to get most of the way through a scrapbook page, and I hate to say it took me ALL DAY.  I have yet to finish it, but after taking a break for a few hours I am back at my desk to see if fresh eyes can finish it up.  Anyway, as my husband and I were sitting here watching the news we noticed the dog... ah the dog... fly hunting...  one of his favorite pastimes.  He literally stood staring at the sofa for 5 minutes watching this fly go around and around the cushion, and when it got close to him, he snapped... and missed.  Then he proceeded to follow it around the room until he lost it.  So funny, anyway I snapped this photo on my phone when he went to see if it landed back on the couch.  I wish I had caught him before he snapped at it the first time...  :)  Good times.
Well until tomorrow.

Really wanting to get things going....

So it's been a while since I've been on... seems like I start every post with that... well it's true.
I want, no... need to get my crafting under way.  I am behind about 2 years on my sons scrapbook and am not even done with my daughters 1st year and we're almost to a year and a half old now, so again not a good start to her book either.  I have been thinking about ways to get things going... I found a few things I am going to do....

First is the 365 day challenge.  I found it on a group post on cafe mom.  It basically consists of taking a photo every day, or every week... for me it translates in taking a photo every day (in theory) and scrapping them monthly for my scrapbooks.  I do a monthly one for my kids for their first year, but there's so much that happens after that that's worthy of being put in the book.  I think we as parents get lot in the importance of saving memories in the first year we forget about all the milestones that come after that.  Their hobbies, the changes in their personalities, and events.  Things we take for granted in the every day but are still special and important.  So, I am going to do this challenge, I started today in taking these photos a few minutes ago.  Granted the day has just begun here.  The first is the storms rolling in, we can just hear the sound of thunder in the distance.  My son riding his scooter around the fire pit on the patio, complaining because it's about to rain and ruin his playtime outside, him and I taking a quick shot of the two of us.  I love to take pictures with him... he still has his squishy little baby cheeks...  :)   I tried to take one of the dog with his stick but he wouldn't be still enough for my cell phone.
