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!

Scrappy time

A few fun pages from my online class at BPS. It is being taught by May Flaum and she has a great style and is full of awesome ideas! I've only been able to get through the first 2 weeks of lessons (and we are now supposed to be in week 7 - oops!), but I am looking forward to carving out some time soon to try out many of her techniques.
