It feels good to be back to the blog! A week off was just what I needed, although I did miss checking in with everyone :) But I will have plenty to share through the second half of May starting with this layout.
Scrapbooking From the Inside Out! The theme of their kit this month is Delight, and this photo and story came to mind :)
It is a photo Mike took with my phone while we were waiting in the general admission line to see U2 last summer. There was an excessive heat warning that day, but it was so worth it to be right in front of the Edge!
I actually posted this photo to Facebook right after he took it. And for fun I hid a little card with my Facebook status and all of the comments behind the photo on my page.
My layout is also up on the Write, Click, Scrapbook blog for Social Media Week.
It was fun combining two different sources of inspiration on one layout :)
As for Mother's Day, it was pretty perfect this year! Believe it or not, I went for a walk/jog this morning. Then I had a special breakfast made by Mike and Erin.
I was able to do a lot of scrapbooking, watched the last episode of Glee, and just relaxed.
The weather here was beautiful as well so we ate lunch and dinner outside on the patio!
Since I was needing a head shot for an on-line site, Mike also took a few photos of me. It has been two years since my last, so I was overdue :)
I have to say, I am not comfortable in front of the camera. Not at all. I am very self-conscious. And 99 times out of 100, I can tell you what is wrong with a picture of me. Silly I know, but true.
I just don't like having my picture taken! Unless it's something like this photo from Niagra Falls where I can hide behind my children and sunglasses...
Even though the shirt is a little brighter than I thought it would be, and I definitely need to get more sleep. (The reason I usually wear sunglasses in photos) See there I go again! Finding what is wrong ;)
But seriously, between that photo and this fun one my sister-in-law Janel took...
Anyway, the reason for the new "headshot" is a small design team position I have been offered that I think will be a lot of fun! A friend of mine is starting a challenge site (blog and Facebook page) called Craft Your Nest, and I am going to be one of her *Chickadees* :) Cute, right?
The whole premise of the site is just to get people scrapbooking, using scrapbook product on hand and having fun. There will be challenges, tutorials, tips and prizes.
It's not up and running yet, but hopefully in the next week. So I will share more info when I can!
And now I am off to enjoy my Monday!
