Click it up a notch

Click it up a notch is hosting a challenge for your best photo taken in January. I took pretty many pictures this month {due to my photo a day challenge} but not too many where taken outside {too cold}.
This was my favorite photo taken in January.

Lots of Layouts

Current Studio Calico sketch challenge...
  one of today's creations inspired by the sketch....I'm thrilled how this turned out...I love the colors....love the ink splatter...love the background paper....loved looking back at these older pics of Casey
photo of the day....day 11 picture
I've been on a little roll the last few days making layouts, so I snapped a photo of my current album filling up!
a layout inspired by a previous sketch from Studio Calico...unfortunately didn't enter in time
layout from today...again some older pictures of the girls...makes me smile
I think this is my current favorite...Absolutely LOVE these colors together...and the photo just cracks me up
This was inspired by a recent layout from Stephanie Howell...love visiting her blog
 Thanks for visiting!

photo, layouts, and a challenge...oh my!

my photo for the day {jan 04}...Alexis was jamming!
 a fun layout....it's hard to remember when Mikayla was this small...
another fun layout...I just love the rafia on this layout...it was perfect to use with the chickens and collecting eggs
One of the current challenges at Moxie Fab is to use map pattern paper on a project...here is the info...Moxie Fab World
I actually had a couple of ideas I wanted to do...here is one...maybe I'll get the rest done for the challenge

Back to school...

Today the kids {three of them anyway} went back to school...Mikayla was the only one that was really happy about it.
This picture just cracks me up....she's writing her spelling words...what is with that face...haha!
 Yesterday, I snapped my new Vera {thank you mom} and my 2012 calendar! We're ready for another busy year!

2012 challenge

So I have wanted to try the project life for at least the last two years....I'm going to try it this year.
For those of you who are thinking "what is she talking about....what's this project life she mentions?"...

I plan to take at least one photo every single day of the year....it may be a gallery perfect shot, a blurry shot of the kids running, or a pile of laundry that I'm facing for the day...whatever I'm inspired to photo that day, that moment

Then the second part of the challenge....scrapbook that photo...no it will not be a full sheet for each photo....each week will be on a two page layout.
So I'm off...here is my photo for Jan 01....Joe playing on his ipad

And one of Alexis that I wanted to share
These are both taken with my phone.
