Ok gang...I am so backtracking here....
My son Elijah turned 15 on June the 6th. It was a bitter sweet moment and the truth was it hit me 2 weeks before his graduation, that my son is now a Young man.
I asked my sister Margie for a photo session with my son. She sent me 8 proofs so that I could choose for the invitation...this are two of them.
This is so him. He is a very casual young man. He does not like big fusses and big hoopla's. He loves' his family with all his heart and loves to spend time with them.

Today we celebrated my moms' birthday. (Although, the official family celebration will be on Tuesday). We got some shopping done and had a really nice lunch at the Falls. I enjoy spending time with her...although she thinks about my dad 24/7 when we are out and about, and worries about him like crazy, we spent a great Saturday morning and afternoon together.
I will share some of the photos/layouts on this this week.
Now for some really great goodies...check this out....Here is the July 2010 kit. There are a ton of goodies here. There are a very limited amount of these left...so make sure you get yours now.
(Sorry for the tiny little print...when we downloaded the JP file it ended up like that...and I don't have the time to fix it...ok...I DON'T WANT TO FIX IT...LOL)
Cost of this kit is $20.00.

I sure hope all is going well. I am in Central Florida this week taking care of some business, teaching some fun classes, visiting some friends, and actually scrap booking my little heart away. TONS of pages done. Unfortunately I had to stop scraping because I ran out of adhesive...can you believe that? I had 5 adhesive refills with me...what the heck is that all about? (I guess 42 pages does take quite a bit of adhesive...LOL)
I am so sorry, but I can't post any pictures. :( I have no idea how to download on this borrowed computer...so therefore, you are all going to have to wait until Friday when I get back home.
I have some delicious stuff waiting back home for you lovely ladies. Jenni Bowlin is all in. WHOO HOO!!! The add on kit is in also. I am not sure about the albums, but those will probably be in some time this week. Will keep you posted on that.
I just realized yesterday that Father's Day is this Sunday. Holy Toledo...where did the time go? I can not believe it. Thank goodness I have Saturday to handle business. It's all good. Although I do remember a time when I used to have every one's presents, cards and party supplies a good 3 months ahead of the date...........those were the good old days..hehee,ha.
Well, got to go a I will be teaching a class this morning in 15 minutes.
You all have a great Wednesday....I promise LOTS OF PICS this weekend.
