Sharing the Moment

I captured this moment between my son John and his wife Kristine while we were hiking around Glen Avon Falls in northern Minnesota last August.  I like the playful, loving expressions on their faces.

Car + Boys = Fun!

Boys of any age can have fun with a car!


Ginny Whitcomb: Time to Play Collection Biggie;  Ginny Whitcomb: Time to Play Alpha Mini. I submitted this page to the 3/27 Scrap Girls Digital Scrapbooking Thursday Challenge to create a simple layout. My title is complex, but the overall design is simple.

Here is a companion page, with a photo taken nineteen years later.



Journaling:

My husband and three sons struggled to get all four of them into this little car on a spring, but the photo proves they did it. This 2009 photo turned out to be an unintentional reenactment of a photo taken nineteen years earlier. In 1990, the car on the spring was much smaller and Harry wasn’t involved, but all three boys stuffed themselves in and posed for a picture. I guess boys never change; they just grow bigger!

Hope this made you smile!

Color Me Silly!

My lovely daughter-in-law, Sara, is often asked by friends to make silly faces, so she is almost a pro! She whipped off 20-30 poses for me in just a few minutes, and these are the best. I used a watercolor brush from Brandy Murry’s Dynamic Brush Set: Ultimate Artist 2 to “paint” a blending mask of different colors over her crossed eyes in the background. Didn’t I color her silly?!

Sara has the ability to contort her facial features into twenty or thirty different silly poses at the drop of a hat. It’s a real talent! (Feb 2015)

I submitted this page to the Tuesday 3/31 Newsletter Challenge at Scrap Girls Digital Scrapbooking to create a page with a silly face. This layout was also featured in the Scrap Girls Digital Scrapbooking newsletter.

Steven created a fantastical, impractical but fun Lego train, probably with lots of help from his older brothers! See how tall one of the freight cars is? Imagine that going through a train tunnel!

Just Like Daddy

For a summer job during seminary, Harry washed windows, and he shared that skill with John (3). Look at Harry’s big smile! He had to wash the windows again afterwards, but it was worth it for the fun the two had together.
