I took Jovanna over to our senior portrait studio on Sunday and had a blast doing a photoshoot with her. I think this is really the first time I have done this with her. She had a great time being the center of attention and got to wear fun things. I got some AWESOME pictures of her...layouts coming soon! I will give you a bit of a tease though - here is my favorite...o.k. I lied, I have several favorites LOL!

Every year we all reflect back on 9/11 and somehow we all tend to remember what we were doing and where we were on that awful morning. I was getting ready for work and turned on the local news as I always do while getting ready and there it was, on every station - the images of the first plane making contact and as I was watching, the second plane. I didn't even care that I was supposed to be at work or even think to make a phone call that I was running late. I continued watching the television and watched in horror as the towers fell. I couldn't speak, I couldn't move. I didn't have any ties to anyone I loved in the areas that were attacked but somehow I had feelings of deep sadness, fear and so many other feelings that I am not sure there are words to describe them. When I finally was able to peel myself from the television and head to work, it felt like such an inconsequential thing to have to do - to go to work. The office was in complete silence, everyone was speechless, unable to find words to say. We had meetings on that day and no one was in a space to be able to talk about things that now seemed so unimportant.

I created a new sketch! I am really enjoying learning this new skill and practicing new things in Photoshop that I have never done before. This is the first time I was successful at using a brush! Here's the sketch and a layout to accompany the sketch!
I have really been enjoying the featured Spice Kit this month. This layout, "Cherish all your happy moments" was created using the September Scrapdango Spice Kit.
