Mike's first formal dance

So tonight is Mike's very first formal dance, with a date too! We rented a shirt, vest and tie- a pale pink tie no less, to match his dates dress. We picked up his date, Femka and headed over to meet the rest of the kids. One of the parents has access to a limo so they even get to ride in a limo for his first dance. I think he was a bit nervous when we got there to pick up Femka, it may be he was worried I might embarrass him. Of course I took lots of pictures, there is no way I'm missing my baby going to his first dance. He looks so grown up I can hardly believe it.

Nancy's Album

Here is an album I made for Nancy with pictures from her 45Th birthday party. I've been holding on to it for almost two weeks waiting for the right time to give it to her. I was thinking maybe the day of or after her surgery but decided tonight was the right time. Tiffany gave me the chipboard hearts and paper I used for the album a while ago and I've been looking for the right project to use them. I picked up the ribbon for the binding and it completes the look I was going for. I really like how it turned out.

An afternoon of scrapping

I spent this afternoon scrapping with my wonderful friend Richele. It has been a while since we had a chance to spend any girl time together so it was so nice to be able to have the day to talk and relax. I was able to get 4 pages done from the 2004 vintage photos I've been working on. I especially like the "birthday ten" page that used Crate Paper products, I just love the colors. Plus it's one of the few occasions I took black and white photos, I used to do it once a year just to give an occasion a different look. I like the Easter page too, I usually don't use too much pink so it was refreshing to use it on this page. The kids look so small compared to current pictures! I also like the page of Jim, he just looks so darn happy with that fish!! I guess I like them all for one reason or another.
