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!

It is August (gasp!) which means BYOC at The LilyPad!

The LilyPad has so many new offerings this month with a color palette that is perfect for late summer photos! There are so many great new products available and they are on sale this weekend only - and the more you buy, the more you save...gotta love that!

There are still so many photos that I have that will go perfectly with this collection! All I need is more time in the day... :)

Be sure to stop by The LilyPad and pick up some new supplies for your digi stash...and be sure to do the August Challenges for a coupon for September!

Happy Scrapping!
