An awesome quote by Mark Twain, and I won't go telling the story of the Apple Valley High School yearbook that showed the difference between a freshman and a senior and how they dress, because Lisha is sick to death of that story. Let's just say, she has been like a senior since she was a freshman! I made this for a quote challenge at Stuff to Scrap using the kit Smile by Digi-Designs by Nicole.
This will be an early page in Amaria's 10th birthday gift book! I want her to know how precious she was, what a great gift to our family! I created this for the June pickpocket pixie challenge at Enchanted Studio Scraps, scraplifting Ellie80's Imagination layout. I used Scrappers Delight kit Mega Spring - great baby colors!

Continuing the alpha book, I used a little scrappetic license with Knifty Knits - and for anybody who sees this and wondered why I'm a scrapper with the name knittinjen - wonder no more! I did this using the awesome Sara Ellis' kit Sunshine Sugar, from Enchanted Studio Scraps.

Oh, look at the sweet, happy face on my boy. He just adored his little sister, he had joy and happiness. How long has it been since I've seen him happy and joyful like this? Okay, enough whining - I made this page with a template by Robyn Pali and the kit Blue-Green Summer by Chris Greiser.

I've always loved these smiley pix. The blanket behind Amaria's head is the top of the quilt that I began making for Lisha in 2001- and which Emma finished and returned to her in 2009! I used Candy Coatings by DDBN of STS.

Look at those eyes! They look like one of those dogs or cats they make cards with where they make the eyes bigger than they really are - except that's how big my beautiful baby's eyes were!
This was another one of those insane challenges - use as many kits as you can from Sunshine Studios designers, one thing from each one. So you have to go to Sunshine if you want to see credits - too long to list here!

As I am the picture taker, there aren't all that many pix of me and Amaria together. So the few that there are will ALL get into Amaria's book. Here's one of them! I used Bahama Mama collab kit from Sunshine Studios Scrap.
Here you go, Emma! That's your boy! A true tree hugger is Brennan! I LOVE this photo - he just told me he wanted to hug the tree, so of course, my camera was ready. I used Welcome to the Jungle kit by Designz by Kristi at Sunshine Studios.
I keep making pages saying "this is one of my favorite pix of Amaria" - well, let's face it, she's very adorable and very photogenic! So this is another one of my fave pix of Amaria! I made this page using the Backyard Garden by Kristi W of Sunshine Studio Scraps.
I've been scrapping so many "old" photos I thought I would do some recent ones - this is the most recent visit David's family made. I used the Welcome to the Jungle kit by Designz by Kristi at Sunshine Studio Scraps.

I'm working my way thru pix of Amaria thru the years so I can give them to her for her 10th birthday in a big book by Blurb. This is her 3rd birthday - she was so completely obsessed with Wizard of Oz! I used Make A Wish by Stolen Moments and Trixie Scraps from Sunshine Studio Scraps.
I basically like the way the layout is as far as positioning - well the pic kind of had to be where it is based on the edges of it. I made the sweater so I didn't want to cut or dissolve that out of the pic. And I didn't want to flip her to look the other way because I like her looking this way. So I decided that instead of matching the colors of the skin and sweater, I would use bright & contrasting colors. I got the wall out of her head, played around a bit with saturation, and kept with the night time theme by using the Wynken Blynken & Nod kit. And I like this layout, tho it's not that much different, much better!

This is one of my fave laugh photos of Amaria - she just laughs so completely and puts her whole self into it! Jeannie was cracking up at Amaria cracking up. They were at Mary Schifsky's house for Leah's baby shower for John. I created this for the Sunshine scrap-a-thon using their collab kit Walking on Sunshine.
I've always loved this photo of Conal, Ginny, and Amaria, though it is not a high quality photo (kind of part washed out and parts were too dark). But through digi-scrapping, I was able to use it despite the flaws! This is my nephew Conal & his Gramma Ginny, and my little girl Amaria (when she was REALLY little!). Used A Sunny Day by Mary's Scrapdesigns at Sunshine Studios for their 1st Anniversary Scrap-a-Thon!
I take zillions of digital photos, and this is why. Every once in awhile, you just get a picture so PERFECTLY BEAUTIFUL - as this one is of Taia. That smile, those eyes - I could look at this little kid all day. She is such a joy! For this page I used the kit Lovely by Mel Hains at Scrap That Idea.
Ike is only in 5th grade, if you can believe it! He's one of the nicest kids - which makes sense cuz he has awesome parents! Karen is the Interim Children's Ministry Director, and really fun! These are people from the church I work at, St Stephen. For this page I used Apple Spice by Mel Hains at Scrap That Idea.
