On another note I just started another class at Debbie Hodge's and I am loving it already. It's all about designing your pages, what to think about and what to take into consideration etc. Really interesting. Here are the 2 pages I made so far, the first one was supposed to be assymetrical and the second one aligned. I think they came out okay.
1.Paper: A. Teets TightieWhieties
K.Pertiet Vintage text
torn strip: R. Fritschmann (Div.Dig.)
K.Pertiet Vintage frames, pinned frames
red circle L. Grieveson web freebie (DD)

Alphas: K. Pertiet tailed alpha
2.All supplies by M.Terasawa (DD) Flutterbutter kit
fonts: Embossed Germanica, Century Gothic, Moria
I used the first LO for the weekly challenge at the Spraground also, we were supposed to use b/w pictures, so that worked out well. It has been so busy lately, I had a lot of catching up to do. I am really trying to leave comments on every LO and every Photo a day posted on the site and this past weekend I got so behind. Yesterday it took me forever to get all my posting done and get my own photos ready to be posted. At least I am caught up now and can concentrate on my class. Jessica has some stuff up her sleeve too, June 4th is her first anniversary, so we'll see what she is going to come up with, some new classes maybe? The excitement is killing us.

I'm not exactly sure what I did, but I like the endresult, true to Kimi's style. I love her homework challenges, she has the coolest ideas and her pictures are always pieces of art!

The kids had their piano evaluations yesterday, so we still had to get up early, since they had to be there at 8.20AM. Then at 10AM we had to be at Karate for certification and Michael had his testing at 1.30 PM. I didn't get out of there until after 4PM. That much for a Saturday off! It seems as though there is something going on every single day, but that comes with the territory of being a Mom, I guess. At least I don't have choir practice tonight, so I can play a little, if they let me.

Some cut-up tomatoes, fresh Mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, salt, pepper and olive oil and you get a fresh, delicious salad, simple and good, reminds me of my years in Italy!
We got to go to Sam's and stock up on some necessities. My cart is never full, but I always spend a ton of money when I go there!
Sunday was Mother's Day and I got some beautiful flowers and cards and even a little teddy bear! For lunch we went over to Helen's and of course all the kids were over there. There is always a big crowd for any of the festivities. Some of them just got back from a cruise and they sounded like they had a ball. We have thought about going on one of those, it really sounds like fun!
Here are some random pictures from the weekend

Debbie Hodge is running this weekly challenge to win a copy of her new book, which I really would like to have. I guess I could just order it, but it's so fun to participate in the challenges. This is the LO I created for this week, we were supposed to show a favorite place and I decided that our front porch is definitely one of those places. When it's rainy and thundering we have spent hours sitting on the sofa, wrapped in blankets and watched for lightening. So fun!

I was just playing around with Kimi's latest homework post, her homework #23. It is so very cool! I tried it on a different picture first and didn't get it at all, then I tried Gabrielle's picture and wham, all of a sudden I got the effect I wanted. The photos become more like artwork, I like it, just something different to play around with.

Here is my picture for today, I combined that with another challenge from Jessica, which was to place 3 pictures onto a storyboard. I fancied it up just a little. I always love this bush near the pool with those red flowers. Spring just seems to jump out with different blooms everywhere, they seem to have come out of nowhere.
