Family Time

My niece Jayden has been down visiting from Washington. She is so cute, very smart, and such a good girl. She is 4 years old. I hadn't seen her for a couple of years so I was afraid that she would be too shy with me but thankfully she don't seem to have a shy bone in her body! Last Thursday I spent a couple of hours with her playing her form of baseball and then we went to visit Grandma Mary and the other family members.
On Tuesday night this week I went to pick her up and then and went to pick up my brother (her dad) and we went to Grandma Mary's House again. I just loved to see her interact with my brother. I loved to hear her call him "Daddy" as she held his hand. My brother is missing out on so much of her life with her living so far away. I wish I could spend more time with her but she is leaving home with her mom tomorrow. I will drop by tonight one last time and say goodbye and give her a photo album with pictures of her and our family.
I guess I need to get to work on some scrapbook pages of Jaiden. I have plenty of pictures, she probably thinks her aunt Rose never stops with the camera!

Here I go...

I'm gonna try this Blog thing and see how it goes. Hopefully I will be able to keep up with it. Between home, church, work, the youth, and my Stampin' Up! business I hope I don't forget that I have a blog.
The picture here is one of the scrapbook pages I created for a class that I taught this past week. I'll have to be sure and get some picture of the youth beach trip on Aug. 2nd to put on this page.
The base of the page is Kraft 12x12 paper with a 12x12 piece of Soft Sky torn in half. Eric gave me the idea to add the piece of white cardstock under the Soft Sky paper so that it would look like the ocean water. Eric wants credit for the whole page. My husband is crazy! He's always telling people that he created the ideas for my cards and scrapbook pages. I used Crab & Co Stamp Set and cut out the crabs, shells, shrimp, and star fish and popped them up on the sand area. I also used my roller on the craft paper so it looks like the beach. Hope you like it.
Off to see the Wizard of Oz play at the Redlands Bowl.
