Free Digital Scrapbook Template – #16

I am getting closer to being done with all the pictures from my daughter’s birthday. Had I put only 1-2 pictures on a page, I could have made an entire album just from this one event! But considering the number of albums I already have and the many more still to come as our daughter grows up, well, I will keep to my multi-photo layouts when it makes sense to do so. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is the layout I made. Simple, but it does the job of showing the important stuff – the photos of the people who shared the event with us. Once again, I am sure some of you creative scrappers can figure out a way to embellish it up. Send me your layouts, cause I need some ideas! LOL.

BBQ

On June 13th, my friend Juan and his wife, Jennifer, were traveling through my old hometown. Since they live in Florida, we don’t get to see them as often as we’d like, so it was a great excuse for some of our friends from high school who are still in the area to get together and have a BBQ. I drove up from Denver to meet up with everyone, and I am glad I did. It was great to catch up. I hadn’t seen Amy or Heather since high school. I won’t say how long ago that was… ๐Ÿ™‚

Free Digital Scrapbook Kit

Wow, I am overwhelmed by the amazing and supportive comments you have all left me on my last post. Thank you so much for the outpouring of love and encouragement and for sharing with me. Not only are your comments all very appreciated and read over and over, but you bring a smile to my face AND inspire me to want to make more freebies for you all. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you all so very much. I love being a part of the digi-scrapping community. You all are so wonderful!

So after several late nights of experimenting with brushes and skimming the net for tutorials, I have finally finished my fourth kit. Once again, my creativity leaves me when it comes to thinking up a name for it, so…say hello to No Reimer Reason’s Kit #4. LOL. It was inspired by a picture of my daughter and her brown teddy bear, cuddled up under a blue blanket, hence the blues and browns, but since it didn’t actually include any teddies I didn’t feel right incorporating those into the title.

Free Digital Scrapbook WordArt – Isaiah 49:1

Yesterday, June 22nd, was the due date for our 2nd child. A flood of emotions has overwhelmed me as I try to imagine what our life would be like right now if I wouldn’t have had a miscarriage, while at the same time I am trying not to think too much about it.

In spite of the sadness that is still there, I am doing okay right now. But I am hugging Adrianna a little closer, a little longer, and a little tighter these days. I am so thankful for the wonderful child I do have and for my supportive husband.

Anyways, after my miscarriage in November I made a scrapbook page using one of our ultrasound pictures. Though it took me two days and I cried the entire time, it was a healing moment for me. I made a WordArt of Isaiah 49:1 for the page that I would like to share. I think this verse is encouraging for both expectant mothers in good, healthy situations or for those grieving the loss of a child.

Cleaning Up

Adrianna came into the bathroom where I was putting on makeup. She looked into the bathtub and asked, “Mommy, did you take a bath?”

“No,” I said, “But I took a shower.”

Peering back into the bathtub and grabbing a washcloth, she scolded, “I need to clean it now, ’cause you made a mess!”

After getting a good laugh over this, I told her, “Adrianna, you are a funny girl.”

She replied innocently, “Yes, I am. I really am.”

Sisters and Shopping

I participated in a template challenge today at ScrapOrchard.com. I don’t often participate in challenges, but I had some extra time while my daughter napped and I liked the template, so it worked out.

The template was only for one photo, and you know me! I rarely have just ONE photo. So I flipped the template 90 degrees and adapted it for two. Other than that, I followed the rules of the challenge, which were that you have to use 1 solid paper, 3 kinds of patterned papers and a three word title.

901 Posts

I noticed that this will be my 901st post. Wow! Yeah, me!! And that doesn’t even include the posts Greg and I made prior to July 2004 when I started this WordPress blog. We started blogging back in April 2000, back before I had even heard the term ‘blog’. Does that make us blogging pioneers? Hmmm…Still pretty cool.

To commemorate, here is our very first post, written by Greg on April 4, 2000.

Amber is thinking of taking business classes for the summer. Greg is going to paint for the summer and then look for a new job in the fall. Bye-bye painting job! Maybe we will move to Denver. Who knows? Amber is also thinking of getting a different job soon.

A rabbit was rustling around in our window well the other day so I set Petey near the window and he became alert. The rabbit got spooked and ran so Petey took off in pursuit but forgot about the window between them. BONK!!!
