mc-hip hop!

i have always loved art and photos and craftiness, so it is no surprise that i got into scrapbooking.  however, when i look back at old layouts and create the layout like i am sharing today, i realize scrapbooking to me is really about the story for me.  first of all, i have a horrible memory.  i remember being in college and taking a quiz on some chapters of a book that i had JUST read the night before.  i kid you not, i could not remember the main characters' names.  terrible. memory. 


scrapbooking is as much about the photos as it is about the stories behind the photos for me and my family.  as my kids get older (17.5, almost 14, and 10.5!!!), it is great to look back and reflect upon their childhood.  we sit around and go through scrapbooks and just laugh and laugh.  it is fan-freakin-tastic!


and what is up with me?!  this is more dialog on a post than i have shared all year!! :)  so on to the show:



(ha ha!  love her FACE!)

rock, paper, scissors hop!

everyone has some serious spring fever here.  within a week we went from -25 (with wind chill) to nearing 60.  it is crazy...but i love it.  I am totally cool with a little spring stopping by.


so happy hip hop again.  I am using my all time favorite SWAK stamps.  they are THE best for scrapbooking.  by far.





i have NO idea why my child does this look in 50 % of the pictures she takes.  i admit that i, too, have struck that pose. it's kinda catchy. 
so check this out:



and as usual...lucky you...

hip hop american style...

i come from a military family.  all three of my uncles were green berets in the army.  my dad is currently on a book tour across the united states with a true story account of his time in Vietnam (where he saved over 200 lives).  so when i saw these new unity stamps, i quickly fell in love.




the stamps were the perfect touch to my tribute layout.


lots of stuff going on at unity today!
