There's no such thing as a happy Monday, right? I'm soooo not a morning person, sooooo not a Monday person, but there's always one thing for me to look forward to on Mondays - a new Nuts About Sketches posting :) Here's mine from week 154. These pictures are from my son's very first football scrimmage. Isn't he cute??

new sketch up at NAS!

Shawn's newest sketch is amazing, of course! It worked great for pictures of our second trip to Camden Park in 2010. CP is a nearby (small) amusement park that seems extremely magical to most children, my own included. I remember going there as a child and thinking it was the biggest park in the world. If you're local, you understand the whimsy behind this nostalgic thinking. BUT, the kids all still love it, and in recent years the park has upgraded quite a few rides.

For the past few years we've gotten season passes to Camden Park and I can't seem to go without dragging the camera along. As a result I end up with loads of pictures (seemingly) of the same thing. This sketch was a fun, quick way to scrap the faves from trip #2.

We haven't bought our season passes yet, but they're 40% off through the end of this month...gotta get 'em :)

Hello...remember me?

I'm sure I'm one of *the worst* bloggers out there. My last update was September...really? Yes! So what have I been up to? Life, mostly :) I work, I read, I scrap, I chase kids and!

So here's my latest layout from the world's BEST sketch sight, I <3 Shawn!!

Last summer my husband found the neatest amusement/water park in Santa Clause, IN. HOLIDAY WORLD! We went for a few days in early July and absolutely loved it. Shawn's sketch called for one 5x7 photo, but I decided to use it for a bunch of those left over theme park photos using a collage print.

So once again...I promise to try to keep up with this blog thing...promise!
