kid's eye view

About a week ago I took the boys to a Mennonite farm to learn about how sap is made into syrup. Holden really wasn't interested in the whole process and kept begging to use my camera. I gave in and handed over my $$$ camera in order to keep him quiet and to allow the other participants to hear what was being said. Well I do believe I have a budding photographer on my hands! I was beyond impressed with the pics he snapped. He even followed the rule of thirds when photographing people! He is obsessed with taking pictures and as soon as my camera comes out he BEGS to get ahold of it. He is very careful with my camera and understands that it is delicate. I think I'll even scrap these ones for his book.

Here are a few pics he took, not too shabby for a 3 year old!
It's been a CRAZY couple of weeks. Hubby and Wyatt both had surgery and it's
felt like a hospital ward around here. Here's hoping to more normalcy and more blog posts!

Monday layout challenge~ It's Tree-rific!

I was up for choosing this week's layout challenge on the TSF forum so I chose trees. Any way you want to use them, a forest or just a single tree, create something and post it in the gallery with a link on the forum.

Here's mine for inspiration:

Of course I couldn't wait to use the new My Mind's Eye papers and embellishments. I love how MME makes it super easy to create a layout and that all the papers are double sided.

Have fun and Happy Scrappin'!
