A Day of Scrapping

I've been one busy lady this afternoon - scrapping during naptime and after putting the kids to bed. I get stressed out when I'm behind in my scrapbooking, so I always try to stay current. (Hence I'm typically not a very detailed scrapper.) I still have more work to do, but this will be all the vacation pics that I'm posting. I'll soon be back to my regularly scheduled programming... life with my girls.

On a side note: I didn't get a photo because Mia was climbing all over me, but Leila scored her first in-game goal during her last spring season soccer game yesterday. She has gotten close a few times, but has always been blocked by the goalie. I was so happy for her. She wanted a goal so badly and she has worked really hard to improve this season. Yeah, Leila!

Way to go Leila....YEAH!!!!!

Michelle, your photos are breathtaking. You have out done yourself. My favorite is the one of you and your DH. The pictures and your scrapbooking looks so professional, and look like post cards.

Can't wait to see what else you will show us. Thanks for sharing, because I'm living Paris through your photos.
