So Disappointed

This weekend I took TONS of photos! We had my husband's birthday, we went to the zoo, we played over at my in-laws house with tons of pics of the little one! I was really trying to work on my photography skills and I took tons of pictures. Well, last night I was going through and deleting some from my memory card and somehow or another I managed to delete them ALL. I was so disappointed. I hated having to tell my hubby that we just lost all of the pics from earlier that day. We had some really cute ones where the little one was pushing his play lawn mower through my in-laws yard and him peeking out of the big box their lawn furniture came in. Oh well, at least we still have the memories. And it's not like we don't have any other pics of the kid from earlier this week. I think I've learned that I'm not going to delete pics while the card is in the camera any more. I'll download them all first!!!

I know I promised to show pics of new artwork last week, but I don't seem to get on to blog as frequently as I think I will. So here is the Mother's Day card I made for my mom. My MIL's card is very similar, but uses Sillouhette paper instead of Whoops a Daisy from CTMH. The inside has a mini accordian album.

Here's a card that I made last week. I used only scraps from the Mother's Day cards I made. I've really enjoyed using scraps lately for cards. I feel like it justifies me buying new papers and it saves bigger pieces of paper for my scrapping, which I hope to do more of soon! The quality of the pics isn't great, but you get the idea. The colors are so much more vivid in person! Enjoy!

Happy Mother's Day!

I want to wish all of you out there a very Happy Mother's Day! Unfortunately, I didn't get to spend my Mother's Day with my mom, but I did get to spend it with my little one and my mother-in-law. We had a great day. At church today, our sermon was about "a complaint-free world." They gave us little bracelets to wear to be more concious of our complaints and to try to be complaint free for 21 days! That should be a challenge! I try to generally stay pretty upbeat and happy, but I know I complain more than I should. I have soooooo much in life to be thankful for. I challenge all of you to try to be complaint-free today (or tomorrow!). Imagine what a great world it would be if we all complained less!

Well, I was on a mad creative streak on Friday and will share pics tomorrow! Until then, I can't have a post without a pic of the little man! Here he is with Grandma and Granddad D. They sure do think the world of our little guy!
