4th of July and Daily Scrapbook Layout

I thought I would share a couple of photographs of my 4th of July weekend. It was shared with some of my family and I had a very peaceful time. I viewed fireworks at the High School and spent some time at a BBQ over at my aunt's home.

I am a self-proclaimed paper hoarder. I buy up all of the DSP from Stampin' Up! and hardly touch it because I fear running out of the paper. I have a ton of retired cardstock and I have to use it up before I allow myself to purchase more paper. So, I have committed myself to creating at least (1) scrapbook layout a day for an entire week.

Here is a layout I created of my dearest Grandfather, who raised me. He loved to build. We purchased a birdhouse and he immediately went to work at putting it all together. It was such a delight to see how focused he was, as well as how proud he was when he finished the project. We miss him very much and wish he were here with us.

Finally got my new camera

Well, I have finally replaced my broken Camera. I did upgrade to the Canon EOS Rebel T3i and have found some of the settings challenging, but I am having a ton of fun playing around with it. My photos are not exactly what I want them to look like, but in time...I expect they will. So, I have posted some of the first photos...
