Happy Saturday!!! a quick catch up

Hi there friends...

Thanks for sticking with me while I've been on a hiatus. =) The last few weeks have been busy, my birthday is near the end of the month and then the July 4th holiday.

I typically try to celebrate my birthday all month long... I don't think I kicked it up as much as usual, but I still had a great birthday week. ;)  My hubby always takes me out to eat on my birthday.. we go to this awesome Japanese Steak House called Genji. it's been a birthday tradition for years. Afterwards we went to see the movie Ted. If you like Family Guy and that sort of humor, then you would enjoy it. Lots of references to the 80s. oh... and my hubby splurged and I got an iPad for my birthday.. been wanting one really bad. I ordered a cool cover and matching iPhone case. I'll be sporting it in style... lol.. =) if you have an iPad, share apps you love in the comments please.

Another highlight of my celebration weekend was a fun day spent with my dear friend Lea. We spent all day Saturday at Ikea, stopped at Archiver's, and wrapped up the day at Red Robin and a stop at Dairy Queen on our way home. You should see the cute items she got me for my bday. I will share pics once I get them off my iPhone.. i think she likes me... ;)

Here are some pictures from our day trip to Ikea... it's so fun and very overwhelming.. so much to see and buy.. =)

And lastly, one of the things I've been wanting to do more of is take photos with my DSLR. So, we took Lea's kids to the spray park and playscape this week. I took some fun pics of her kids.. here is a collage using a Kerri Bradford storyboard. I love Kerri's digi files. So easy to use. This one is from storyboard #6 and is 10x6.

I have more fun pics to share from this day, but Lea hasn't seen them all so I'm waiting to surprise her with them. They all turned out awesome.

I used RadLab to process my photos before adding to the above board. RadLab is super easy to use with Photoshop Elements. I like that you can preview your photo before applying the action.

I'm off and running today. lots of errands and things to do. I'm in charge of our family reunion the weekend of July 13 and I'm hosting family that comes into town on Thursday. I'll be crazy busy the next week or so, but will hopefully have lots of family memories to scrap.. =)

See you all soon. Toodles. =)
