In Her Element

My older daughter Kaylie has always been such a nature lover. While on vacation in Door County, WI, my sister took this photo of her. We had just been hiking. Kaylie, Olivia, and their Uncle Craig waded through the shores of Lake Michigan throughout part of the hike. Kaylie was just loving it all, and the photo captured her joy at the end of the adventure.

Make 'N' Takes

I was able to go to Scrapfest this year!!! It was at The Mall of America and I had a blast! I took a class that I'll share more about in another post, met the wonderful ladies above, watched some demonstrations, and purchased a few items at Archivers.
Jennifer is a friend I met from the Studio Calico community, and I was happy to see her in person at this event. Elizabeth, Nicole, Amy, and Kelly are all scrapbooking stars in my eyes, and it was so fun to meet them in person. Such talented, sweet women!

Our 2011 Vacation - Part One

We went to South Dakota this summer for our family vacation. The above three photos were all taken at Badlands National Park. We all thought it was gorgeous! I had read somewhere to try to go in the evening and get photos at sunset. I practically jumped out of the van before it stopped moving, when I saw the sun setting against a beautiful scene. My family and I had a good laugh over that. I'll be sharing more about our trip in future posts.
