I wanted to share with you a present that she received from my good friend Linda. Linda is a friend and loves to spoil my children with gifts. When she found out it was Emily's birthday, she made these for her friends!!Thank you so much Linda, the girls loved it!!!

I love this picture of Emily. We were in Juneau on our Whale Watching tour!


This is what my friend LInda made for her. A bouquet of Gumball flowers, Daisy Treat Cups, and a cake full of treats!!

Soccer MDS Page


Wowzers, have you seen the new downloads for My Digital Studio? This week downloads are amazing!!You can check them out here. I can't wait to download them and create with them!!

Anyway, here is a page that I create for Emily. She decided this year to be a goalie and I was a little nervous about this. But she is rock solid in net and not to many balls get pass her.

My layout was inspired by a sketch that I saw in Scrapbooks ETC magazine. Most of the time when I design a layout in MDS, I usually start with a layout that I saw in a magazine and then I change it up from there.
