Sketch #3

Here is the newest sketch I have for you this year. I am always looking for ways to use 8x10 photo's on my layouts and so here is a design using an 8x10 but you could modify this sketch to use different size photos. Have fun and remember to send me your layout using this sketch and I will load it here. Send it to

Here's the sketch...

Toot One and Toot Two!

I just got word that Memory Makers would like two of my layouts that will appear in the upcoming July and August issue! Two layouts that are incredibly meaningful to me and I am just jazzed that they were picked up. They feature my children and very special moments. Watch for them!

Too Cute!

Jovanna has been participating on a special needs cheerleading team for about the last 6 months - the only one in the Pacific Northwest. They are just way too cute! They performed today at a Cheerleading Competition and will do a half-time performance at the Portland Trailblazers Game on January 28th! I have to tell you, these girls have the ability to turn an entire gymnasium full of people into tears when you watch them perform! Here's a really bad picture of Jovanna at the performance today - I was videotaping and asked another parent to take pictures for me so unfortunately, I didn't get very many good pictures but the experience was amazing!

And one more...
(I have tried to blur out the images around Jovanna so the other girls have some confidentiality)
