Here's a simple one for you if you are short on time or energy! I made this at the retreat I was at in March and I loved it--I need to make some more of these!The heart stamp comes from the new SU! set, but for the life of me, I can't remember what it's called and I borrowed it from my girlfriend so I don't have it here. The squares were punched with a 1x1 inch punch. I used a bunch of Bo Bunny polka dot scraps. I told you I use this paper alot;0)!So, what's up with all of you? Is there anyone out there anymore? I am wondering if anyone reads this blog or have you moved on to bigger and better things? I know that my readership of blogs has changed...and the types I read vary with what my interests are at the moment. I think I read less card blogs and more photography, decorating and quilting blogs now. So I get that, if that's the case. Maybe I've scared you all away because I share too many photos. I have another blog I plan on starting up again that will be strictly photography based. I love to share my photos but often wonder if this is the best avenue to do that. I think the card makers get bored with my photos, and if I invite people interested in photos only to come here they'd be bored with the cards. Oh, what's a girl supposed to do?
As far as life around the Westerman household, all is well. We are in the process of waiting to hear if Doug will be offered a job he interviewed for on Monday. The job would be PERFECT for him, but it would require a move from our home of 17 years. It would be tough, but we would be so thankful for the opportunity. It sounds like we won't hear for 2-3 weeks, ack! Why do employers do that???? Hurry up and wait.
This is my nephew Daniel and his new wife Laura. I used a 70's PSE action on this photo to make it look retro. Love how it turned out!
This is me and my SIL Diane. Don't we look like a couple of Easter eggs with our colorful sweaters, LOL?
This is my adorable mom. When we all get together, we do a lot of this. Laughing.
This was one of the first attempts to corral the troops. By troops I mean cousins! We were missing one on Easter, but they were still in fine form without him. I'm sure you recognize my two!
Not surpisingly, this is the best picture I was able to capture where whey were mostly all looking at the camera and in a straight line. All the others were variations of the shot above this one! Usually we take one picture of the kids in chronological order, which is what they were probably trying to accomplish in the shot above this one. For this one, however, we had them line up from tallest to shortest.
This is my niece Rachel. The only way I could get a picture of myself to prove that I was actually present this day was to take a picture of my reflection in her shades, LOL!
This was a shot I took of the gang that was watching the festivities below from a safe spot up on the deck! From the left is: Liz (SIL), Laura (nephew's wife), Diane (SIL), Chris (brother), Doug (my hubby), and then my mom and dad.
After the group shots, I broke them off into boys and girls. I absolutely ADORE this picture of the 5 boys! They are, in order from left: Daniel, Eric (mine), Luke, Scott (mine), and Jacob.
It was finally the girls turn, and just let me say, I love having the chance to take pictures of girls! They love the camera (unlike my boybarians) and make my job fun! Here they were trying to be bad ass girls, even though they are the sweetest girls on the face of the earth.
Some more PSE 70's action! They are, from front to back: Rachel, Mary, and Jessica. Thanks girls, for playing along with your Auntie Amy!
Well, if you're still hanging around, that's it for now. Have a great day. Get out there and take some pictures. They tell a story that someday you're not going to be able to!!!
