I love getting layouts completed! I love the feeling of saving a layout as a JPG because I know that is my last step and my layout is finished. I have finished more layouts since I started doing digital than I ever finished in the same amount of time doing paper scrapping. I feel a bit free-er with digi since it is so simple and quick to 'un-do' or 're-do' something you are just not happy with. I love being able to bring colors from my photo into my layouts too!

This is the 2nd layout for week one of Jessica Sprague's up and running class. I am totally loving the freedom of having someone else choose the layout and I just get to play! lol

The journaling reads:

Could anything be more precious or more beautiful than the sweet innocence of such a cute little face! This picture makes me want to reach in and kiss those chubby little cheeks! I know I just need to enjoy you to the fullest right now because you are growing so fast!

We are leaving in the morning to head up to Prineville to visit my Brother and his family. My niece Cristin will be flying in with her little guy Carson who we have not had the chance to see yet and he was born in June!! So excited to see him and to see Cristin since we have not seen her in close to a 1 1/2 years now!

Amber is going to have Ashley (my other niece on my side) cut and color her hair. Ashley is in beauty school in Bend and has been doing a fabulous job!! So anyone looking for a new fresh look that lives in the Bend/Redmond/Prineville area, Ashley will graduate in January! I will post a photo of the finished product when Amber and Ashley are done. :)

Totally hoping the weather cooperates with us since we are planning on driving our Motorhome! This is a photo of the road this morning, we might have to wait till tomorrow and decide if we are driving the pickup or the motorhome. I am soooo spoiled traveling in the motorhome I really hate having to go very far in the car! lol
