Just some photos....

I played with CS3 last night. I have been wanting to do this technique for a while now and I finally figured it out. It's the textured background with the subject in the foreground.

I also have sort of figured out how to make my own rough frame....
These are photos from our third day of summer vacation that we took to this June.

First Day of School and a bit of creativeness

Every year Since Kindergarten, I have taken a photo of these two on the stoop on the first day of school. This year is not different. Today, Harrison (my baby), begins 3rd grade. Now how did that happen? and yes it is the 30th of July. This year he starts the school year with a few bangs and cuts left over from his bike crash last Saturday.... he in on the mend.
Now this brings me to the creativity part of the post. In my last post I posted about our journals. has been about a week. I have some photos of that I want to share. Harrison is doing this with me, but he took his to school today, so I couldn't photograph it.
These are just a few of my favoirte pages. We are really having a lot of fun using this journal.
I hope you are all a great day. I am off to the park with the little ones...They still have another month of Summer.

Look what arrived today!

I have not been blogging lately. We are just enjoying what is left of our summer. My oldest returns to school next Thursday. Yep...You read that right. July 30th. So we are trying our best to get as much summer in as we can, which is why I don't post every often.

Anyhoo, back to my title. I have been waiting for these journals to arrive. We ordered them last week and they are here. By we, I mean, me and Harrison. We are going to be using, reading and wrecking these together. He is is just as excited as I am. I also had fun playing around with my photos so I had to share...which explains why there are three...

Visiting Kentucky

So here we are in Kentucky. We arrived Friday morning...(3am est) and have been here all weekend. We came up for my BIL's wedding. I have lots of photos.(lots for a short wedding, the song a cousin sang was longer than the entire ceremony..) Anyway....we are going out shopping at Uncle Lee's in a moment. The kids are staying at a cousin's house so we have a little time withou them.

ANyway, I thought I would leave you with a photo of the Bride and Groom....

My first photo with my new camera.....

This is the first photo I took with the telephoto lens. I was standing on the deck by the backdoor and took a photo of my bench (that we never use) in the back of the backyard. It is not bad for a first photo. I really like how it focuses on the seeded weeds.
