Kids checkup

Took all 3 kids to the doc yesterday. Girls needed physicals to start soccer in September and Daniel needed his 6 month checkup. It is amazng to me every time we go in how much they grow!! Katie is 5 foot tall and 112lbs already. It shouldn't suprise me so much considering she is one shoe size from wearing my shoes, but it does! Laura was pretty much a pound per inch of height. She is 48 inches and 49 lbs. And then there is the growing baby, Daniel. Babies grow way to fast, so it is no shock to see the change he had in 2 months. He grew another 2 inches to reach 28 1/2 this month and weighed in at 18.4lbs. He as only 15 at his 4 month check up. Need to sit down this weekend and get a new photo of him for his 6 month pic. I will post it soon!

Guest Design Team

I was so tickled last month to be approached by Dora, the owner of Scrap Street, to be the guest Designer for August. It was so hard not to let it slip about what a YUMMY kit she had sent me to design with for my August commitment. Have to wait till next month to share the pages on here, but you can go and check them out at http://www.scrapstreet.com/magy2/itsaug/other/contents.htm

News in reverse

Sine I am so bad about posting on here, there is loads of exciting news for me to share! June was an especially good month here. With the photos I had taken of our friends wedding in 2006, I had scrapbooked a few pages that I absolutely fell in love with. Eventually I want to scrap all of the photos I took, but that is going to take a while at the rate I am going. I have only done 5 pages in a year. That is the besides the point, though. So far 3 of the 5 pages for their album have been picked up for publication. The first one made the cover of Scrap Streets Monthly electronic zine. Here is the e-zine coverwith the first layout.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
The next 2 pages are part of a double page layout and will be released in August by http://www.memorymaniac.com/
The last 2 pages were submitted for publication to Scrapbook Trends but I won't hear back until after August 15th if they want them for publication.
I also had a second 2 page spread chosen for the memorymaniac publication. It is a page of Laura playing soccer last year.
I am really looking forward to gettin a copy of the book in my hands!

Sketch team

Joined a sketch team to go with the Digital Design team I am on. I am trying to make myself remember to post here most often so maybe this will help. I am also hoping that I will become more motivated by sharing the cards and layouts I create for Close to my heart. Fingers Crossed!
