The Band Boy & Neverland

I posted a bit on my P365 blog about Matthew’s band instrument selection meeting back when it happened. We got the happy news last week that he was approved for his first choice – saxophone!!! Matthew was thrilled! I’m sure it would have been interesting for him to learn trombone, but he just really loved the sax and was way more excited about the possibility of playing it, so we were very glad that worked out. And, of course, since that’s what Mark played when he was in school band, he’s pumped that Matthew is following in his footsteps. :)  Now we just have to go about finding Matthew a sax and all the little stuff to go with it, and figure out if we are going to be able to do the private lessons they recommend.

Next up is a layout. PixelWorks has an awesome new kit out called “Where Are We?”. (If I tell you we have no idea where we are, can you guess what TV show inspired it? LOL) It has a sort of pirate-y/island type of theme, and when I saw a challenge at Log Your Memory to do a layout inspired by a children’s book, I just knew I had to scrap this super-cool Peter Pan pop-up book that Matthew got for Christmas! :D

Journaling: Matthew received this elaborate pop-up book version of Peter Pan this past Christmas. 4/17/10
The book is by Robert Sabuda. The
Amazon listing has photos and a video of the pages. :)

That’s it for here for right now! I’m running behind posting on my P365 blog, so I’m going to see if I can get a few of those up before I run out of steam tonight! :)

Layouts: Sweet & Silly, Kickin’ Back

Pam is at it again! Not only does she have another new release for her guest spot at The Lilypad, but she also has a fun coordinating freebie in the Little Dreamer Designs Apprentice competition!

This layout of Kaylee uses both! Here she is four years ago at almost 4, making the same faces she makes when I try to take her picture now. LOL

And then we have one of my P365 shots of Matthew using mostly the Lilypad release and Pam's fun Collage Cuts Alpha!

Journaling: Matthew relaxing at the end of the day, watching a stop-motion animation version of “Peter and the Wolf”. He was not impressed and proclaimed it to be really bad. At least it was only a 30-minute short. 3-18-10

That’s it for tonight! Mark and I went out and tackled phase one of our severely neglected weed field lawn this afternoon and I’m beat! So sad that it still looks so bad after all that work. LOL We don’t even get to sleep in tomorrow, since Matthew has his middle school band instrument selection meeting first thing in the morning. :-b

Have a great weekend! :)

Layouts: Little Spitfire, Summer Breeze

Pamela Donnis is guesting at The Lilypad this month! I’m loving the BYOC spring colors and themes, and Pam’s stuff is just so darn cute! :D And everything is 20% off this weekend!

I did two layouts of Kaylee using photos from last June. :)

First a shot of classic Kaylee attitude. LOL

Journaling: kaylee has always been very emotional. she’s easily upset and quick to anger, and she will definitely make sure everyone knows exactly how she’s feeling. sometimes her attitude drives me up the wall. but the flipside is that she’s also just as quick to give a hug when needed and tell you just how much she loves you. photo 6.21.09 - journaled 3.30.10

And then a shot from the park. Once I decided on the title, I couldn’t get the song out of my head, so I added the first part of the lyrics as an overlay in the background of the photo. :)
