Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

A Mini Travel Album

I got some great 7 Gypsies stuff to play with from Express Yourself! They have the coolest mini albums and rub ons and our recent camping trip to Western NY was perfect for this project.

I used the 7 Gypsies accordian album and travel rub ons and then some Basic Grey tags and letters and lots of Tim Holtz goodies - the crackle ink, acrylic paint, distress inks, and grungeboard.
