Pictures from the Farm

We were out at my my Father in law's farm for Mother's Day weekend. It was a gorgeous weekend and I couldn't resist doing a little photo shoot with the kids. This old car made for a fabulous backdrop. The kids thought it was fun to be able to crawl all over it and "pose" for me.




Our next stop was this old wagon wheel. I love how it turned out.
This was my favorite picture of the weekend though. I love it. I love that Opa and Ruby are holding hands as they walk together. I love how the sun is side lighting Ruby's hair and how it is creating this white halo on my Father-in-law. I love his hair. It is snow white and so soft. This picture just speaks to me of family and memories of my own Grandfather and walking with him hand in hand. I think my most favorite part of this picture is that they didn't know I was behind them. This photo just speaks to me of a Grandfather's Love.

Sonshine

This page is from Just Cre8's May kit. I love the photo of my son and the title makes me smile. I made my own tiles for the lettering and embossed the little green arrow but other thatn that I have no fancy techniques on this page.

Star Student

Wolf is the Star Student this week so instead of using the premade templates that the teacher sent home (glue a picture on a piece of paper) Wolf and I sat down and did this on the computer instead. Smilebox is a digital scrapbook program that I had played around with before but that was about it. It is so easy to navigate. Wolf did almost all the work himself. I helped him load in the pictures and did the typing but he picked the backgrounds and which pictures he wanted to use. He used the scanner and printer. He learned how to replace the ink cartridge in the printer. He learned how to remove elements he didn't want. He dragged and dropped the pictures into their spots. He learned how to save a file and where to save it to.

He did an awesome job. I sat back and just helped when he needed it. The Star Student wall at school has received a lot of compliments and interest so far this week. I am so proud of what he accomplished over the weekend. I think the Sprts Magazine cover and the Wanted poster are my favorites.
