It took a couple of re-dos, but in the end I am very pleased with how my wedding album came out.  I finished the album in 2009 or 2010 so these are a few old pages, but they are some of my favorite from that album.

Falling Deeper

Since the day he was born, I can't imagine how much I fall deeper in love with my husband every time I see him interact with Kirk.  He is such a loving and wonderful father.  Plus Kirk is turning into Jason's little mini me more and more with every passing day.

This is a new page that I did this past weekend.  I used the Basic Grey line, Ambrosia, which is one of my absolute favorite paper packs ever.  I should have probably hoarded packages of it when it was an active line.  I also used Glimmer mist, Tim Holtz distress inks, and a Tim Holtz mask on this.  Anyway, these photos are of Kirk when he was 8 days old.

Kirk and Spock

These are some of my favorite photos of Kirk from his newborn session.  I just think he looks so animated and engaged with his Spock doll.  Just like the real Kirk and Spock on Star Trek.

Birthday Card

Just a quick birthday card I made for my Father-in-Law.  I used scraps of My Mind's Eye Asparagus line (I think) as well as distress ink and some stamps I was recently given by a family member.  I'm really pleased with how this one came out.  I have to admit I saw the design on Pinterest.  (You can follow me here)  I just love Pinterest to organize ideas and projects.  I admittedly pin mostly recipes, but there are quite a few craft ideas also. 

Trash the Dress

These are some old pages I've done.  They are from my trash the dress session back in May of 2009.  I used Basic Grey's Sultry line for the whole album.  I hope you enjoy these blasts from the past.

Change of Plan

This few weeks I've thought a lot about my blog and about if I wanted to continue blogging or if I wanted to just give up and let go of what happened to all my pictures (read the original story here).  I decided two things 1) I DO want to keep blogging, but 2) I don't want to go back and try to reload all my photos back on to the blog.  I just don't have enough time.  So I have a new plan.  I'm going to try to start blogging more new stuff along with going back through my older projects and reblogging some older stuff I've done.  Why not?

With that said I actually scrapbooked yesterday!  A friend came over for the evening and we had fun scrapbooking into the wee hours of the night.  OK...till almost 10 o'clock.  It was fun and really reminded me why I started to scrapbook and why I've always come back to it even if I take a break (long or short).  I managed to finish 4 pages last night.  Here's just one of them for now.  The other four are coming.  I've gotta spread the love out over as many posts as I can for the time being.  Anyway...I hope you enjoy it.

The photos are from Kirk's newborn photo session when he was just days old.  I sure do miss that snuggly little guy.  I used an old Basic Grey paper pack, Marakech, as well as plenty of ink, mists, and a Tim Holtz mask.

Something has gone very wrong

As you may notice none of my posts have photos in them anymore.  That's because I seem to have accidentally deleted them all.  I was cleaning out some unwanted photos from my phone to make more space and I found a folder that said "Blogger photos"  I assumed this was just a folder of copies of my blogger photos so I deleted the whole darn thing.  Imagine my surprise when I looked at my blog about a week later and all my photos from the past 4 years are gone.  I kind of want to cry right now.  What really makes me mad is that I don't even know why my phone had this folder.  I've never blogged from my phone and I've never taken photos for my blog from my phone. 

I've looked and so far haven't been able to find a way to fix what I've done other than just re-uploading all of them one at a time which will take forever, but I've decided that this blog is important enough to me to at least try to get the photos back up.  It will probably take me a long time to do and I plan to start with the most recent posts and work back, but I'm going to try.  So sit tight and bear with me.
