Congrats to QueenShakeNBake for LOTD, Spring.
This lei-out catched my eyes when I made my round through the gallery.
I love this colors, which shows me happiness and gives me a summer feeling. I also like to see a photo different from the family-fotos which we see mostly.
The other lesson this week was to scraplift one of several lei-outs the swim instructors and lifeguards had chosen. I chose to scraplift Digi-Chick Linda's fabulous lei-out

The Iowa State Fair currently does not have a category for digital scrapbooking. But the "scrapbooking" category does not specifically preclude digital scrapbook pages, so several digi scrappers I know and myself are going to enter some layouts. The deadline for entries is July 1, 2009. I've chosen five layouts to enter and have sent them to Costco for printing. I may submit a couple more. I need to look at the premium book a little closer. Perhaps next year they will include a category just for digi scrappers.
Thank you Denise from "Time to Scrap" for finding this information.
Here's one of the layouts I'm planning on entering:

I've been playing around with two photos of Mia I took at a soccer game when she was upset with her Momma. I did two completely different style layouts with the photos. Can't believe the difference in the two. One is kind of sweet and the other is grungey. I personally think I like the grungey one better. What do you think?
Supplies used were:
- Nicole Young's "Retro Jive Girl"
- Robin Gough's "Urban Myths" kit
Yesterday was Jeremy's 30th birthday. Thirty years ago yesterday Roger and I welcomed a son to our family. Thirty years ago yesterday Carrie was brought to Lutheran Hospital by Grandma and Grandpa Loghry with a stuffed baby that played a lullabye to give to her new baby brother. Thirty years ago yesterday our family was complete. Love you Jeremy. Here's to many more.
Jeremy's lovely wife planned quite a birthday celebration for him, covering several days. On his actual birthday she got family and friends together for dinner at Macaroni Grille, followed by bowling. Then she is taking her two men (Jeremy and Jaren) to Wrigley Field for Jaren and Jeremy's first Chicago Cubs game and dinner at Rainforest Cafe.

My hotel room. Had plenty of pillows.
Dinner at Buca's.
The limo that brought me to the hotel--me and only me.
I finally made it home tonight. Had to really book it to make my connecting flight in Minneapolis. The plane landed in Minneapolis with 25 minutes until my Des Moines flight started boarding. I was, however, in the last row of the plane so the last one off. I got to my gate as they were boarding first class. Good to be home and see Roger. Can't wait to see the grand children tomorrow night at Jeremy's birthday. Sorry Jeremy and Sarah about not getting home in time to watch Jaren.
All in all, the trip was good and I'm coming back with some good ideas and things to think about.

I was going to share some pictures from dinner but can't get my computer to read my memory stick tonight (it worked fine last night).
See everyone tomorrow night.
Did this layout while waiting for my flight to take off from Des Moines yesterday using Nicole Young's "GiggleLand Kit." I love this kit.
My ride from the airport to the hotel was in a limo--my first limo ride with no one to share it with. I'll post pictures soon.

Last night several of the DSP digi scrappers got together for dinner and a photo walk in the West Glen Town Center. We walked down to the Gatheway Market to get to know one another and dinner. Gateway Market was nice enough to have a hawk show up and perch on the clock tower for us to take pics. Unfortunately I am still without my 200 mm lens.
Here's a couple videos from last night too:

Tonight I did this layout for Hummie's garden analogy challenge:
