Radiant you

Ahhh, is it Wednesday already?  This was a long weekend here with Monday being "Family Day."  Really, it is just an excuse to stick a holiday weekend into the middle of winter and I am not going to line up to complain.  My husband took the kids to see my MIL for the day and I stayed back to do some editing for the retreat talks I am preparing for this weekend, had a wonderful lunch out with a friend, and enjoyed some quiet moments in the house.  Now I'm all mixed up as to what day it is!

I am very much looking forward to having some more time to scrapbook and catch up on other things around here after the retreat is over.  Don't get me wrong, I am totally looking forward to the opportunity, but big events like this are hurdles in my thinking, I really haven't seeen past Feb. 27.  My oldest daughter is happy as she says I will have more time to clean the house.  Do you think that's a hint??

Speaking of my daughter, here is a layout I recently completed.  I love these photos snapped of her at the beach.  She seems to be skipping the "ugly duckling" phase and carries herself with a lot of grace.  She's a great helper to me and I enjoy having her around.  I used a whole bunch of Making Memories product on this page.  The layers are straight, my photograph is just on a bit of an angle:



I have a meeting later this morning and the girls have music lessons this afternoon.  What are you up to today?  Whatever it is, have a great rest of your day.
