Final Day

Tomorrow is the day! Camp begins! :) I think they will have a good time, I just hope it won't rain for them. They are pretty much packed and ready to go. We took the birds to be boarded today, tomorrow morning I will drop the dog off before Church and then we are done. We decided to head out to the airport in the evening and stay overnight at a hotel, easier than driving there on Monday morning and face all the traffic. Phil's brilliant idea.

I am packing light, maybe I won't need to check any luggage since they charge 25$ now each way. Absurd! I am not looking forward to all the traveling but that's part of the deal I guess.
I finally posted my panning the bike picture for the Kelby walk, there is no way I will win anything, but what the heck...

Talking about winning, the other day I received my second prize from Kodak, a beautiful all in one printer! I must say I was excited about that, I have never won anything with my hobby, so there!
I did one page this morning, a scraplift of one of our CT members, Patricia. She makes gorgeous pages. Here is a link to my page which includes a link to her original page

this one I finished last night, it's done with a new template that just came out tonight, Anna's beautiful stuff

and I am also caught up with my 365 pages again

I really really love creating pages, I get excited when I place things on there and they work. Sometimes it takes forever and I am not sure, other times it just works right away. Funny how that goes.

Michael found a dead bird in the pool today, I have no idea how that could happen. It wasn't even a baby bird. That has never happened before,  I can see chipmunks, they don't fly, but makes me sad

Here are some more random photos from the photo walk

Hey Barb, do you think I should replace the panning photo with the train shot? I think it's more in focus and sharper....decisions, decisions.... nobody around here will help me

Oh Las Vegas, here we come, lots of photo opportunities. I better bring my laptop so I can upload all the photos I will be taking :)
Have a wonderful weekend you all

Thank you for sharing more of your photos from the Kelby photowalk! WOW! They are wonderful. You know how I like details and these are just chocked full! Beautiful!

PS have fun in Vegas!

Anke, they are both great, but I think maybe I would use the train. It is really hard to decide. But you are right, it is a little more focused and I feel the motion a little more. Don't you love it when no one has an opinion. Duh. They HAVE to have one...just say something...right?? LOL

Hope you have a fabulous time. I know the kids will.

Your DH had a great idea staying at the hotel. What a guy!!! Can't wait see pics!!

have fun on your trip Anke.

Heather said...

I need to do a Kelby photowalk one of these days. :)

Vegas is a haven of photo opportunities - your camera will be on fire, baby!

Jeanne said...

What fabulous photos from your walk, Anke!

Hope you have fun on your little vacation and that the kids really enjoy their camp.

Your layouts are fabulous, of course! My dad is visiting, so I'm not able to peruse for too long at the moment.

Can't wait to hear about your adventures!

Hey girl! How are ya?

I signed up for the photowalk last year but chickened out when I got an email from the organizer in my town with a specific list of stuff that was "ok" to bring and other really professional talk. I felt a stupid newbie reading and promptly replied that I could not attend. LOL. I know, I'm an idiot.

Never say Never!

Well, here I am creating my very own blog! I was always very sure I would never get into this blogging "thing", but here I am. I hope you will enjoy finding out a little about my not so interesting life!
