Today I am going to do something different, Picture my Life pages that I have made from Dr Phil Scraps. This is the “Later Skater” set, my boy is all boy and this fits him perfectly
Her is the start page, I was toying with the idea of printing a black and white photo blending it on the top of when he was little. He has loved sports for so long, I think he had the names and the stats down for the Seahawks by the time he was 4. He loves baseball, football, basketball anything to do with sports he lives and breathes it.
Here is the back side of the opening page, he doesn’t skate board so I will be covering that up with a photo but I will keep the rest! I love the little interviews the cards provide.
So now he is all grown up! This is his best game ever. My first time filling the pages, I printed my photos to small but I know better now! He has 7 albums of him to himself, then when my daughter came along I slowed down on his albums and tried to give my daughter some of what he has but I haven’t really gotten close to what he went through having a mom as a budding photographer all his life. He says he is retired, lol.
Later Skater is a great set, when you buy a set of “Picture My Life” themed cards, it comes with page protectors too. Close to my heart has the best page protectors around in my opinion. My next post will have the girly version “Chantilly” I love love love. As the term is coming to an end you will see these Picture My Life, pocket style scrapping. Very excited to show of these cool moments even if it’s an every day moment!
We had planned on going out of town Friday, but ended up deciding to spend our time together with just us as a family. It was so needed more than I realized. We tend to get wrapped up in the busy life then the extended family celebrations and more then end up exhausted. So Friday we had an awesome day just hanging together, spent the morning with my family in the same room with them, lol… I bought a book of questions for conversation, brought that out and and after hearing some of his answers other than all the answers about the super mega million, I learned even more about how much he loves me. then out shopping with hubby and kids for me a fishing pole, I wanted my own. I got a nice deep red and black ugly stick pole, very nice. Came home barbiqued steak, the best ever. Then off to the firework show.
Now I am off and on with how much I love to fish, I don’t mind throwing the reel, reeling it in and taking care of it or even baiting the hook, or cleaning the fish but sometimes I think I am giving him the favor of being there just so he can fish with two poles! That way I can play, take care of the little one and get rid of my nausea after the car ride of winding roads. So I sat on my but and created on my tablet, took pics of the kids of course. Collin was the only one to catch a little silver but that is ok, the day couldn’t have been more perfect in lack of the car sickness.
In the meantime I had downloaded an image from a coloring page. Digitally colored it in, now that I am home went to print it to put it on a card but then got carried away just adding things to it digitally just to visualize, now it looks like a great email to send to my husband next week out of the blue. He is such a doll, he is an amazing man. He is the only one for me, no matter how times and trials can get ugly in a marriage, he will always be the one for me even if I am rolling my eyes at the time and I know he loves me and the kids more than he loves his self. As he really rolls his eyes because we are the crazy ones! LOL
Enough of the sap… Here is my image I colored in on my Nexus and printed then went all the way… I wasn’t sure if I should put a heart or an anchor! LOL
Well thanks for you time to see the inspiration. Digital coloring is amazing sometimes. We are not little kids but we surely are big kids! I just know that he is the only one for me.
Welcome to a new contest!
This month it is a joint contest with SnapDragon Snippets and SVG Attic, so that means you have even more files svg/sillouette files to choose from and create with to enter!

At first I started out taking pics with little crayon box, thought it was cute, but it didn’t give the whole look I wanted ..
So then I used a pot
and added another pinwheel!
So there is my bit of inspiration for the contest. This file is actually a patriotic pinwheel but I love summer colors and will keep them out for the entire summer so I didn’t go with the patriot theme. You have GOT to see that file though! It Rocks for a Pinwheel!
