The Weekend Lens

This weekend was full of celebration and remembrance.

We celebrated my son’s 8th birthday on Saturday and today we’re remembering the soldiers who have given their lives in service to this great country we call home.

Along with Will’s birthday on Saturday we visited the Balloon Festival here in El Paso. We love witnessing the hot air balloons fill with air and take flight into the morning sky.

Keith and Will also went camping last night in the Franklin Mountains. This was their last time camping in the desert mountains here in El Paso.

Scrapbook Saturday

It’s so easy to get distracted from the one thing that I truly love to do, which is scrapbook.

Having this weekly post on my blog reminds me of this. It helps me to make time for scrapbooking throughout the week. And being able to share those layouts here on Saturdays is such a joy to me!

Here are the layouts that I made time to create this week…

Awesome Good Stuff

awesome-good-stuff_700

This layout was created using a template by Little Butterfly Wings for the template challenge at The Lilypad.

Every night Keith asks the kids to tell their favorite part of the day. My little Jenny is notorious¬†about being completely manipulative during this time. She answers “reading with YOU before bed” to ensure that she will get to read with him before bed.

I love to watch the two of them reading books together. It warms my heart to see them engaged in such sweet moments together!

I broke the journaling on this layout up and placed it in two different spots. I also used lots of word strips to go along with the overall feel of this layout.

Hello Perfection

hello-perfection_700

This is a layout of my husband and I together. We have so much fun living life together.

The journaling reads:

You make life so much fun. I love going on dates and just spending time hanging out with you. My life with you is an amazing gift of perfection.

This layout was for the random challenge to focus on making the title standout. I used word art that was included in a kit for the title, but it was just perfect for the feel of the layout.

I love using a black and white photo with pops of color added into the layout as I did here.
