Little Swimmers-LOAD 25

I went back to Kay Miller Designs today...and couldn't resist the Blue Lagoon Kit. I also got the one called Love Bug, which has THE cutest little ladybug! I picked up a new template set there, too. Sigh...it's way too easy to get sucked in! I really need to organize my stash again. LOL

Anyway, I probably have scrapped these pictures (too lazy to check for sure), but thought I'd use them again just because I wanted to use the Blue Lagoon kit. It's nice to think about the warmth of summer in the middle of winter. :o) I just love the expressions on the girls' faces as they jumped off the diving board and came out of the slide. The colors of this kit go perfectly with the blue of the water don't you think?

Oh and I saw a tutorial on the Scrapmatters blog about creating a text path. I thought it said you could do it in PSE, but I don't think so, at least I can't find the same command in my PSE. But, the writer of the tutorial included a freebie template, so we wouldn't have to do the work of actually creating the text path. On that template was a circle text path. So I used it to get the arch for the Little Swimmers title.

We ended up keeping Amy home again today because she was coughing quite a bit after she woke up. She didn't resist too hard, so she probably wasn't feeling 100% either. This way she has the extra few days to kick the bug and will go back on Monday. Jessica doesn't have school on Fridays. We did go out for a bit because we all are experiencing some cabin fever. It has finally warmed up a bit, although it's windy. The sun was shining and it was nice to be outside for a little while. They are starting to fuss at each other, so it will be nice to separate them a bit next week. :o)

Thanks for visiting. I hope you find time to create today.

Cute layout! I love layouts of happy, laughing kids. You are the same age as my youngest sister. At 42, my life was so different than it is now. I was still a SAHM living in a big house in the country. While I wouldn't change a thing, I know that had I had a crystal ball and been able to see into the future, I would have said, "No way!" It's been an adventure . . .

I have so enjoyed looking at the pictures of your mom, beginning with that GLAM shot. My mom also died young. Those lime green cabinets; what were they thinking; my mom's were pink metal!! Can you imagine?

I did tear up reading the post with the two of you pictured. That loving that we stop and take the time to relive our memories.
