I know it's Father's Day.

However, this post is for the moms!  Do you still have a child(ren) using diapers, pullups or wipes?  Do you use Pampers products?

We have been using Pampers since Laura was born on May 31, 2005.  Two daughters later and that's a lot of diapers and wipes!!  Each bag comes with a little code that I have faithfully been entering at Pampers.ca. 

With those points that have accumulated, I have gotten lots of free pictures developed from shutterfly.com.  I have cashed in my points to use there whenever I have had enough!  Today, I just spent enough points to allow me to get 400 4x6's delivered here.  I'm currently in the process of uploading and editing these pictures.  I have until Sept 30th though.  I will definitely have them finished and delivered in time for my scrapbook retreat in October!

I guess my point is, if you have to buy diapers and wipes, you may as well get something in return.  Something other than a dirty, stinky diaper!

Two Scrapbook Friends - June product challenge

I picked up the product challenge kit today and I'm pretty sure, I used one side on another great Allison Davis sketch.  I'm saying that because lately, they've all been her sketches - with one weekly ST sketch thrown in for fun.

The idea of the product challenge kit is to use a bit of everything that is in the bag.  I am loving the accordian flowers, they are pretty easy to make once you get the hang of it.  There were rub-ons, ribbons and brads in the kit as well.  

My scrappy day today,

produced results!  Lots of them :)

You guessed it, another Allison Davis sketch!

Sketchy Thursdays 6.9 challenge

I got to spend today scrapping with a lovely group of ladies.  I got a few layouts done and got to play along with this sketch challenge for ST blog!  To make it even better, we did a pot luck.  Yummy!

I was so sure that I was going to flip this sketch, but it turns out I had pictures for it the way it was.  This is O in my mom's wedding dress.  We watch Say yes to the dress all the time and they wanted to go dress shopping.  I gave them the next best thing!

The dance recital!

I am very impressed with how the girls did! 

OcĂ©ane really had a great time and did pretty well, considering that she may have been on her own stage, at least in her mind. 

Laura made everyone laugh, because she knew what had to be done, and when other girls weren't doing it, she stuck her ground and held firm. 

Next year, Laura has chosen to sit with mom and dad and watch her sisters dance.  She wants to try martial arts and maybe some synchronized swimming!

under the wire!

With one minute to spare, I got my layout posted on the Sketchy Thursday blog!  This sketch was right up my scrapbook style alley.  So simple!
