Big Adventure

Everyday with Miles is a big adventure and a big blessing! I have to say that two and a half is just the funnest age, very trying at times but oh so fun!  Treasuring this age is very important to me because I know that in a  blink of an eye, Miles will be starting kindergarden!  It goes by so fast.

This LO was made with My Big Adventure from Chaos Lounge. Available here at Enchanted Studio Scraps.

One more thing...I got Gallery Stand Out at DST with this layout!  What a thrill but really Jen's (Chaos Lounge) kits are so fabulous, it's hard not to make a great page with them!

Fix-it Friday

ime for fix-it Friday over at I heart Faces!  We get to work on this photo of such a little sweetie.  Her face is in the shade so my goal was to lighten her up without loosing the pretty blue of the sky.

Here's the original photo:

And here is my edit...what do you think?

 I probably should have cropped it in some interesting way but I thought the original had a great tilt to it, so I kept it.  Head on over to I Heart Faces to see some really great entries for Fix-It Friday!

Jessica and LJ...Belly Pic

I tried taking some belly pics of my daughter, Jessica, the other night.  Makes me wish for some backdrops and good lighting! Oh well, maybe someday!

Show me your hands!

This week's theme at I Heart Faces is hands. No face required this time! I've had quite a time picking a photo for this week. I could go with baby hands, mommy hands on preggo belly or so many things! But in the end, I went with a photo of the person with the most impressive hands I husband, Seth. He's a very talented professional guitar player and it's amazing to watch. After a decade, I'm still totally impressed! Though part of that may be due to the fact that I don't have one iota of musical talent myself!

Head on over to I Heart Faces to check out all of the many incredible entries!

Okay...I'm back. Almost!

I've decided that I need to get this blog back up and rollin' so that I can post my weekly I Heart Photo entries here instead of just on Flicker. So by next week I hope to have done just that! But for now, here's my photo and flicker link if you'd like to comment.

This week they are bustin' a move over at I Heart Faces! The theme is "I Wanna Dance".

I have SO many photos of my Emma dancing over the years because my husband is a musician and she's been to 100's of gigs. This photo brings up some bittersweet memories for me...Emma was 10 here and still totally uninhibited, childlike and free. Now that she is almost 12...I don't know if she'll dance in public anymore. She been bitten hard by the "tween" bug. My hope is that she'll always be able to tap into the complete freedom to be herself... her laughing, dancing, beautiful self.

BTW, she doesn't normally dress like that but she was being a little performance artist that day!

Head on over to I Heart Faces to see more dancing pics!
