Commemorate Time Spent Together With This Family Scrapbook Layout

With the 2020 lockdown, many people found themselves spending more time than usual with their immediate family members. Lots of people transitioned to working from home.

Family Fun with Countryside Comfort

I love family time.  It is the best warm and fuzzy feeling there is.  I am sure that you have seen these family photos of mine on many projects, but let me share the story.

It was a fall day in 2011.  My oldest son was a senior in high school.  This mamma bear was on a mission to have fun family photos taken before the birdie left the nest.  At this point my boys were so tired of me sticking a camera in their face, so I was feeling “iffy” about how the day might go.

To my surprise, it was the funnest day our family had had in a long time.  We smiled, and laughed, and were just plain silly.  So, if you have seen some of the silly ones—this is why. We actually got in the car to head home, and they both commented about how much FUN that photo shoot was.

So, find yourself a FUN-loving photographer who will let your family be yourselves—-and capture those memories…..before the nest is empty.

Summer is my favourite time of the year and I seem to wish the days away all spring to get to the cottage again!  Morning coffee on the deck,  lazy afternoons on the beach, snacks and refreshments on the boat and smores by the campfire are a few of the things we love.  Oh yeah… and taking photos of all of these wonderful memories!

Slice of Summer Digital Kit is perfect for our memories at the lake!  The colours and the embellishments work fantastic!

Top 5 Crazy Creative Things My Siblings & I Did Together: National Siblings Day 2017

There was rarely a dull moment in my household growing up. There were four of us kids in the family—my older brother, me, and my two younger sisters—and my parents had a strict family rule that we couldn’t watch more than 30 minutes of TV a day. While we all had hobbies and activities that we liked doing on our own during the week, we often ended up creating innovative games and activities together on weekends. Given that today is National Siblings Day 2017, I thought I’d take a few minutes to share my list of the top 5 crazy creative things I did with my siblings growing up (and don’t judge!).
