SIL's visit - Part 1

At the end of July, my sister-in-law (with her wee ones) started a month long Arizona visit from Illinois! We hadn't seen her in a year, so lots of pictures were taken... you know what that means! Lots of pages to scrapbook! Here's what I've got so far!
I put the blue flowers on the blue paper. I like how it came out. :)

These were for a circle challenge.

Buttons & A camping Trip

Today there was a button challenge, so I threw a few into this birthday party page.

And now our July camping trip to Lake Mead. I'm loving the title on this one.

Two Birthday Parties

Today I scrapped a couple birthday parties that I went to in June. Nothing too special with the layouts. I also started 4th of July weekend which I'll probably finish and post tomorrow.

Anniversary Pages

Over the past few days, I've been scrapbooking our anniversary trip to Sedona. I've also been participating in online scrapbooking challenges at justmommies.com. (I may not be a mommy yet, but I hope to be someday). I'll talk about those as I go.

There was a "use a quote" challenge. The quote above says "There is only one happiness in life: To love and be loved."

The above journaling talks about our dinner at The Hideaway and our after dinner excursion to Tlaquepaque, which is featured below.

The next was for a polka dot challenge. I made the dots with a hole punch. :)

The first journaling above talks about how much fun we had at Red Rock Crossing. The second talks about taking the scenic route home, and what a great trip it was!

I've been busy!

I did this one yesterday. It has my very first pinwheel. That's my mom's horses Reno & Jack! They're her babies!

The rest I did today.

The journaling talks about the horses and how scary it was to ride Reno, and how she took me through a tree and I fell off!

My last Oregon page. Me & my mommy! I'm not good with single picture layouts, so this was a challenge for me. But I think it came out okay!

My 26th Birthday in Laughlin with Clint.

Now I'm all caught up!

Here is everything I've got from my present time album! The first page is the most recent (did it today!), and it goes backwards. Now I'm caught up and I'll start posting what I do as I do it, maybe a couple times a week... possibly daily. LOL. I do try to scrap every day, but I skip a few here & there.

Pictures from Mom & Keith's ranch in Oregon:

These aren't all from the ranch, but same trip:

Our day in Oatman. Oatman is a neat old mining town not far from where we live. The wild burros live there and roam free, and are Oatman's biggest tourist attraction now.

On the way home from Easter weekend:

A few pages from Easter weekend:

I realize how bad the quality is on these last two. I need to re-take the pictures!

Birth to about 3 1/2 years old

Here is what I have done of my childhood so far! Actually, its not all of it. I still need to take a few pictures. Which I may or may not do in the near future. But for now this is what I've got to show ya! They're in order!
