Creative Time

So I was lucky enought to be invited away for some create recovery time. What a great way to be able to recharge your batteries. We headed to a lovely B&B in Neepawa, called the Gargden Path.
We arrived on Friday at lunch and will stay until Monday at lunch. AHHHHH!
What a wonderful thought 4 days of scrapbooking, laughing, sleeping, and just enjoying some special time with friends!!
These are the pictures of our dinner on Friday evening.

I just have to say I have enjoyed my time so much so far! I have even gotten some scrapbooking done-haha!
It is the best feeling to be rested and creative at the same time!!
Have a great weekend-Chris

Traditional Anyone?

Here are just a couple of fun Traditional pages I have been working on. All the supplies are Creative Memories. The first is from a trip skiing. All the new Destination products from CM make it so easy to complete.

The next is a fun page from a weekend at the lake. This is a different color combination but I think it turned out great. Enjoy!

Hockey like an NHL Star!

Well I am not sure how much more exciting M's season could be and it just got started. On Friday at 2:30 in the afternoon his coach called a dryland practice for Saturday at 11am. Brian and I were both working so we had made other plans for him. We emailed the coach to let him know, a few hours later he called and asked if there was anyway we could get him there. He had a special coach coming. So like a good parent I rearranged my work day to take him & brought along the camera!
This is M as he notices the special guest coach is Travis Zajac!!

I just have to say it was fun for me to watch as M was soaking in all he had to say...

I think you can tell by the smile on his face the fun he had!!
He soaked in all the information he gave them. In the end he signed hockey cards for all of them.
I am very thankful I was able to change my plan to get him there and take pictures!
Have a great day!

Where did the time go?

Wow, we are in the final stages of getting ready for back to school. We had an amazing summer around here. I am sure that is why there have been no post but now I am back at it. We were able to spend a ton of time at the lake. M even sailed in the Provincial's. What fun.

The highlight of the summer was our two week trip to PEI. There will be more photos to follow but here are just a few!

Now off to finish filling out school forms and writing cheques!

Strawberries anyone!

So one of my most favorite things to do is take the kids and go strawberry picking. The boys did a great job. After they got to go to the petting zoo. As I have city kids they thought this was super fun!

What a great day. And the jam is already in the jars. Just waiting for them to seal.

My Beautiful Dancer!

She has always wanted to dance! And she always has, ever since she saw Baby Bop on Barney dress up as a ballerina. But Wow! has she grown. We are so Proud of her! The first layout was her audition a year and a half ago for Professional Division.

The next one are just photos of her dancing that I love!
All supplies are Creative Memories!
Have a great weekend!

A couple of traditional pages!

It has been awhile so I thought I might post a couple of my tradition pages as of late. I love these pictures of Hans eating the apples. These pictures must be a dozen years old now as she has a full head of hair and is almost as tall as me.

The second page is just last year. The flagfootall team became a great group of friends by the end of the year. How better to celebrate the end of the season then with a slurpee!!!I am really loving the banner across the top.

All supplies are Creative Memories.

I love the tough look!

The kids were trying to look all tough. They could hardly hold back the giggles! This was a skateboarding park in the back of the Mexican restaurant we were eating at. They had a blast!!


I'm on a roll

I was lucky enough to get another page done yesterday before I had to start dinner! I am having lots of fun trying to learn a new thing. Sometime frustration but I think I am enjoying the challenge. I think it helps to have some inspiration of some great vacation photos!

Enjoy! Chris

Don't know when I will see this again...

So we just got back from our yearly ski trip. This year we went to Fernie, BC. They had 3 amazing days of skiing and snowboarding. I don't do either so I tried to teach myself some of the basics of sbc Studio. That was my fun for the week. So, now something to share...
I took this picture with my phone so it is not great but I wasn't sure how many more changes I would get.
