Scrap Class

My online digital class taught by Jessica Sprague ended this week. I learned so much, I am looking forward to taking another one of her classes in the new year. Here's my last 2 digital layouts:

The supplies to create this layout were all provided by the Class.

I also completed a paper layout this week.

I used 2 of ChrisDurnan's files. The swirl bracket, and the Just for fun title. The other supplies are KI patterned paper, autumn leaves journal stamp and miscellaneous orange cardstock.

Just wanted to share. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoy creating them!

Farm Girl

I have a confession.... Deep down, I am a farm girl. Especially during the fall harvest. I love to spend the day riding in the combine or tractors and watching the corn flow. The kids and I went to spend the day at the farm yesterday. It was a bit breezy, but otherwise a beautiful day. Here are a few photos of our day.

Fall has arrived here in Central Iowa. The temperatures have dropped and the colors are rapidly changing. I wanted to share this photo with you, because it is so interesting. This is our neighbor's tree, and a single branch has turned.
The rest of the tree looks like spring. Anyone know why? I would love to know.

I wanted to share a few soccer photos with you. Both boys have been playing soccer through the Ames Parks and Recreation program. Andrew is helping to coach Ethan's team. Both boys are really enjoying their seasons. Ben' teammates are boys and 1 girl from the neighborhood, who have played together since 1st grade. They have made amazing progress; they have fantastic passing and truly work together as a team. It has been really fun to watch. They have won most of their games. Ethan team is improving every game. They have not been as successful as Ben's team, but that will come. The kids are having fun and learning, and that's great.

2 New Ones!

2 new layouts from the Jessica Sprague digital class. I am learning more than I can actually absorb. It is loads of fun, but I really need to get away from my computer and do some house work! I also have about 7 paper pages that need titles etc...

Day at the Farm

The kids and I headed down to Oskaloosa on Saturday afternoon to spend some time playing on the farm. Unfortunately, we arrived pretty late in the afternoon and our time was short. We will have to head back. Dad and Mike mentioned that I have at least 6 weeks left before they will be finished. My cousin Margaret and her 2 kids were visiting from Michigan. It was really nice to catch up with her again. Here are a few photos from the day.

Nadia rides the combine with Grandpa.

The 3 girls were fast friends: Nadia, Anna B (my niece), Kelsey (My cousin's daughter)
The few of the boys are included in this photo: Elijah (my nephew) Anna B, Ethan, Adam (My Cousin's Son) and Kelsey.

Yep Flowers!

We had a busy, busy anniversary day. That has been pretty typical for us. We have set aside next Thursday for our Anniversary outing. The babysitter has already been hired! Funny story about our babysitter.... She is a student in my night class at DMACC, although, neither of us knew that. I received her name from a friend and have talked to her several times on the phone. We only put it together when I went to my friend's house and saw her there. Light bulbs flashing!!!

I am looking forward to our date, we are going on a Boone County Scenic Train Ride. I don't know the last time we went out alone.

I just wanted share with you that I do get flowers... every once in awhile!
