Pieces of Pages

GUESS WHAT???? My family is coming to visit me tomorrow!!!! They'll be here (in shifts) for 2 weeks and I am very excited to see, for example, this sweet thing:

I love these pictures of Chloe -- she is so playful and fun! I busted out my new Basic Grey Kioshi collection for this layout as well as the next one.

In these next two layouts I used Crate Paper's Prudence collection and embellished them with handmade and Prima flowers and Jenni Bowlin buttons.

For this last page I used scraps from Basic Grey's Periphery collection for my "why I scrapbook" layout:

That's it for now. I suspect that I won't be blogging much when visiters are around!

7 Years of Married Bliss

We celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary last week with a low key dinner out at Terra, a nice little place here in Albuquerque. We usually take a trip for our anniversary (especially since it lands on/near Memorial Day weekend) but this year we are saving up for a trip to Hawaii in the fall/late summer.

So we spent our long weekend (ok, it didn't feel very long because I worked every day) at home and went to a picnic with our friends from Faith Church.

Who is that handsome man in the distance, running like a gazelle? ;D
