Yes, I have been very busy. Weekends have been packed with get togethers and parties, and lets not forget I must work for a living. Most importantly I did manage to find some time this week to scrapbook and work on a layout from this fabulous kit called Rejuvenation designed by Veronica Spriggs. The kit is packed with 16 papers in wonderful colors and over 40 beautiful elements plus a great set of alphas. I am so happy to be a member of her creative team!!
Here is my first layout from the kit featuring who else but my Jamie girl. This kit is amazing and the layout came together quickly. I love her dreamy look in the picture and I love experimenting in photoshop elements. To achieve this look I layered two of the papers from the kit used the overlay blending mode and lowered the opacity.

She was a character to say the least and there was never a dull moment when she was around. Her family was her greatest joy and although she never had any children of her own she adored her nieces, nephews, great nieces, and nephews and I am happy to say my Jamie her great-great niece. She lived for them and loved every swim meet, basketball game, baseball game, and cheer leading practice she attended and was the #1 fan. The little ones really loved her. I think it was because she was such a kid at heart that they could really relate to her.
While browsing through a magazine one day I came across this quote "be glad you had the moment" I am not sure who the author is so I will assume it is anonymous. There are many moments in my life that I am grateful for and happy that I have had the joy and privilege to experience. Aunt Anne for all the good times, the bad times, the crazy times we had together and the glasses of red wine at Ceasar's Palace I am so glad we had the moment!

I know one thing for sure it seems like from the day he was born in 1979 I blinked and here I am writing this in 2009! I can't believe how quickly time passes as I was looking at pictures of him from the time he was born until now I could actually recall each moment and how special they were. Again another reason why I SCRAPBOOK! Make sure you preserve your memories and now that our photos are digital get those pictures off the hard drive or your memory card, printed and into albums.
Oh and Dominick - Happy Birthday
I love you,

In His World Kit by Veronica Spriggs
Saturday, June 6, 2009
Been a bit busy the past two weeks and have not had a chance to post. This picture is the last one taken of my Mom and Dad before he passed away and it captures a very special moment in his life. We always celebrated Easter in Las Vegas when my parents lived there and this Easter we also celebrated my Dad's 70th Birthday with a surprise birthday party. Who knew this would be his last birthday and life as we knew it would never be the same....Memories and photos are so precious. They are all we have to remember our family and the special times in our lives... this is why I scrapbook
