Read about it on the [u][b][url=]BLOG HERE[/url][/b][/u]. This was a hard one for me, still feeling very emotional about my dad’s passing, how 7 years ago now, how quickly time goes, it still only feels like yesterday.

Do I look back at him through rose coloured glasses? Possibly. But when I think of the man he was I find it hard to find any chinks in his armor. He didn’t drink, he never smoked and honestly I can’t say I ever heard him swear. He loved us all with his heart and wore his heart on his sleeve, unashamedly. I remember how he cried big sobbing tears of happiness at our wedding, not caring who saw. He threw himself into his activities - football umpiring and brass banding and all the committee and social positions he held. He would be at every one of my band concerts and all Trevor’s football and cricket matches. He spent countless hours driving mum up and back to Melbourne when grandpa was sick, never once complaining. He worked hard. He was always there for us. He was the ‘gentle giant’ to all. And when he himself got sick he never once asked “why me”, he accepted it as that next step in his life and battled so hard through it. And when we think that God takes the best, he really did get the very best when he called for dad. Christmas Day 2007 was when he truly became our Christmas Angel. When people say how much I resemble my dad, that makes me so happy. I will take that and wear it with pride all the days of my life. Always loved, never forgotten. My dad.<br /><br />16 comments Tue, 16 Jun 2015 11:56:37 +0000 The Story of Dad <a href=";title=the-story-of-dad&amp;cat=1759"><img class="imgborder" title="dad23.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="dad23.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: bessysue581<br /><br />Description}: Join us on the [u][b][url=]blog[/url][/u][/b] for this month's Story Scrapbook Challenge all about dads! My dad saw a show on TV this winter about a government conservation program in Oregon and Washington where fisherman come and fish for pikeminnow, a predator of the salmon, and get paid for each fish they catch. My dad, the eternal fisherman, thought that sounded just awesome, so my parents packed up their camper, boat, and two pickups and drove from Kansas to Oregon to live and fish for a few months this spring and summer. My mom has her own stained glass business, so they just built her a little work room in their camper, and she continues her work while my dad is out fishing. So while this is a challenge to tell a story about dad, it is actually a story about both my parents and their total awesomeness to just go off and do something a little crazy and completely out of the norm. I love that they are willing to be adventurous, go for their dreams, and embrace life. So here's my awesome dad fishing the Columbia River for pikeminnow on his current life adventure! :) ::All Designer Digitals:: Katie Pertiet The Story of Dad challenge freebie [u][b][url=]Bloese Element Pack[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Conifere Element Pack[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]From My Bookshelf No. 02 Element Pack[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Go Fish Kit[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Great Escape Travel Scrapbooking Collection[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Leyton Element Pack[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Summer Days Brushes and Stamps[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Taped Together Photo Frames No. 03[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Vintage Photo Frames Curled and Flat[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Vintage Photo Frames No. 12[/url][/b][/u] Lynn Grieveson [u][b][url=]Woodville Template Album No. 02[/url][/b][/u]<br /><br />18 comments Tue, 16 Jun 2015 11:48:59 +0000 One Kit Wonder Challenge: Your Very Own Scooter <a href=";title=one-kit-wonder-challenge-3a-your-very-own-scooter&amp;cat=1759"><img class="imgborder" title="QScooterMay2015WEB.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="QScooterMay2015WEB.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: CelinaT<br /><br />Description}: Love this kit!

It’s hard to see in the photo, but she’s got a big bandage wrapped around her right front paw. Somehow, she managed to get a 3/4-inch thorn in her paw (major ouch!) and the vet had to remove it... under anesthesia, no less. So she bumbled around for a few days until the vet removed the bandage and she was proclaimed healthy to run around again!

My husband said goodbye to his job as an elementary principal at the end of March 2015. Because of all the incompetence and politics-playing from the superintendent/school board, Mike had had enough of the daily anger and frustration and needed to get out of there, effective immediately, not July 1 when his contract ended. He actually found a great new job right away as a technology coordinator/instructor for a company that works with many area schools, so we are so grateful for this new adventure he is on...and much better for his blood pressure and sanity as well :) He still gets to work in education, at which he is so wonderful!, but is glad to be out of just a crummy situation...I teach at a different school, and we went round and round with how much we wanted him to be the principal at the school we were going to send our daughter to preschool (not sending her there anymore!) vs. how much he could put up with both personally and professionally at a job in a district he now hated...But in the end you do what's right for you and your family because that's all that matters -- your health and your family -- and although we were sad to see this chapter close for him because he was so great at what he did, we are all so excited because he loves his new job and couldn't be happier!!! (Thanks for letting me ramble on) ;) These photos were taken the day before he tore his office down and cleaned everything daughter and I stopped in to take a few pictures and play with Daddy and the toys on his desk one last time...

And that is probably why the thought of you heading off to Prep next year and no longer being at home makes me a little sad. Your 2 days a week at kindergarten this year are a taste test for us all and while I love how much you have grown so far this year I also dread the 2016 school year. I find myself already worrying about how you will transition. I worry about how I will transition. I worry about how we will transition as a family. I am already hoping you make lots of nice friends. That you will like your teacher and that you will love school. It shocks me still that we can now enroll you for school next year. And it makes me a little sad that this stage is coming to an end. But it is also such an exciting time for you. I can’t wait to see how you do at school and I know you will love all of the new learning experiences. There are lots of changes coming sweet boy, and I know you will take it all in your stride.<br /><br />9 comments Wed, 03 Jun 2015 09:16:07 +0000 » the very best « <a href=";title=bb-the-very-best-ab&amp;cat=1759"><img class="imgborder" title="1505-end-construction1.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="1505-end-construction1.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: beehive50<br /><br />Description}: What a cool challenge for this week's [b][u][url=]DD blog[/b][/u][/url] makeover: Endings.

They say every ending has a new beginning. Our new beginning was through his son, Joshee. It was puppy love at first sight. I switched out the frame for a bit of puppy whimsy, added the typecast brush, and enlarged the quatrefoils.

Sarah asked us to begin with a layout showing an ending and change it to show a beginning. I switched things around and used an old page showing the beginning day of a trip to New England and used it as the basis for a makeover to show the last day of our trip just before leaving New Hampshire for home. We travel to New England almost every October . . . in 2013 the weather was wonderful and the trees glorious! I took lots of photos! I also started a book for this trip . . . here is the first page for Day #1.

I decided to makeover the very simple layout that I used for[b][url=;nocache=1]this page[/url][/b] about the end of a great visit with grandparents. I graduated back in 2003, but I never did a page as it was long before I ever started scrapbooking. Every year at this time, I am reminded about my graduation and I have wanted to go back to do a page about my graduation for some time now. This seemed like a perfect opportunity.

Thank you, Sharon and thanks, Katie for the freebie. TFL! Journaling reads: Move-in day ended with a convocation for freshmen and their families. And before we said our good byes, you were given your graduation tassels to hang on to. I thought it was a nice symbol but do they really think these freshmen will know where they’ve kept them come graduation day? I know you will but I’m sure the school has tons of back up for all the lost tassels!

SO HARD... but I wouldn’t change it for a second. I wouldn’t change a single thing. Some days are hard. That’s for sure. There are days that seem to go on forever. Days where I am pretty sure I didn’t get a shower. Eating breakfast for lunch. Cold coffees. No sleep. Nappy bombs. Meal battles. Bath battles. Clothing battles. Battles. Frustration. Tears. There are days where I feel completely out of my depth. Sick days. Worried sick days. Teething. Ohhh the teething. Bumps and bruises. There are the days where everyone wakes up on the wrong side of the bed. Days where no matter what I say or do, I get tears or screamed at. Days where I want to collapse in a heap but spend my night up with a cranky baby. My house is never picked up. And when it is, it lasts for 1 hour max. Clean laundry is lucky to make it out of the basket. But for the most part, these days are not every day. And these days make up this wonderful life we have. The good, the bad and the ugly. These kiddos are happy. They are healthy. They are loved. And they love me. What more could I want? Give me the hard days any day if it means I have all of that.<br /><br />9 comments Thu, 14 May 2015 21:17:44 +0000 mother <a href=";title=mother&amp;cat=1759"><img class="imgborder" title="2014-08-mother-_-boys.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="2014-08-mother-_-boys.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: sandsock<br /><br />Description}: The story is that these are bad pictures, but lovely memories!

My mother died when she was 38 and i was 10. I often wonder who I would be if she had been around for a little longer. I think she was a beautiful woman. The wish to have known her never goes away. poem: I don’t know how she does it The vision is still there it hasn’t gone 42 years have, but not the face nor the smell nor the smile nor the want and need to be able to touch the body, or the soul. Miraculously in an instant a child has her mother’s indelible imprint etched on her being, like a tattoo, permanent always present never fading. The oft present voice that whispers in my ear in times of need or despair, in times of elation or of fear is she. I don’t know how she does it but I listen.

Who knew that dad was the glue that held us together? When he was gone we three gradually fell apart. First mum and I hurt each other terribly for well over a year. Then as we started the road to recovery, Trevor and I hit rock bottom just as his marriage broke down. He cut me out of his life completely. And I know it hurt mum. But she never played sides, well tried as hard as she could not to. Trying not to mention Trevor in my company and vice versa, for fear it would spark anger from either of us. Then after three painful years we met to take mum out for lunch for her birthday. The first time Trevor and I had laid eyes on each other in over three years. And it was nice. And it was a start. And it made mum happy, probably the happiest she had been since dad died. Lessons have been learnt, we are still re-building our relationship, in fact we three are still working out how to be together without dad. I don’t know if we ever will get it right. We just need to learn a different type of normal. But since this day we have met a few times now for occasions and meals, for normal conversation, and while Trevor and I are not fully back to where we used to be, we are back enough to make mum happy, and we’ve both realised that’s what’s important.<br /><br />12 comments Tue, 12 May 2015 11:53:57 +0000 At the lake- page makeover <a href=";title=at-the-lake-page-makeover&amp;cat=1759"><img class="imgborder" title="25_lake_web.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="25_lake_web.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: mungerre<br /><br />Description}: I made over a [u][b][url=;title=color-challenge-ice&amp;cat=500]winter page[/url][/b][/u] for the challenge on the [u][b][url=]blog[/url][/b][/u] Katie Pertiet [u][b][url=]LakeLand Scrapbooking Collection[/url][/b][/u] Lynn Grieveson [u][b][url=]Fade Out and Torn Template Album No. 02[/url][/b][/u] Studio Double-D [u][b][url=]Readymade Borders: Traveler No. 02[/url][/b][/u]<br /><br />12 comments Tue, 12 May 2015 01:37:50 +0000 All About Princesses–One Kit Wonder (+1) - May 7 <a href=";title=all-about-princesses-96one-kit-wonder-2b1-may-7&amp;cat=1759"><img class="imgborder" title="20150507_01_Hiding.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="20150507_01_Hiding.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: wsprite_ad<br /><br />Description}: This was definitely a fun kit to use.

I eventually settled for the [b][url=] branch from Chandra Kit[/b][/url]. I extracted a part of the swirls from the [b][url=] Princess Fairy Tale Journalers[/b][/url] and used it as branch filler. My DD is turning 10 this Monday and I've wanted to make a &quot;then and now&quot; page for her, the challenge motivated me to just do it. Thanks for looking this way!<br /><br />6 comments Sat, 09 May 2015 08:41:26 +0000 Page Makeover - A New Season - May 4 <a href=";title=page-makeover-a-new-season-may-4&amp;cat=1759"><img class="imgborder" title="20150429_05_CherryBlossom.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="20150429_05_CherryBlossom.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: wsprite_ad<br /><br />Description}: I really liked this autumn/fall page and thought it would go well with my spring flowers (cherry blossoms)..;title=let-92s-blend-challenge&amp;cat=500 [img][/img] Supplies: [b]Katie Pertiet[/b] KPertiet_ARTpacksBranchedNo1 KPertiet_BirdwatcherBlendablesNo1 KPertiet_ColorfulWaterySpotsNo2 KPertiet_DigitallyPressedPetals2 KPertiet_DigitallyPressedPetalsNo7 KPertiet_DirtyFrames KPertiet_DirtyLinens KPertiet_FlairsSpringSentiments (HelloSpring) KPertiet_FreshVintageClareSolids KPertiet_FromMyBookshelfBlendablesNo3 KPertiet_HelloAutumnSolids KPertiet_HelloAutumn_Kit (Doily, Flowers, WordStrips) KPertiet_Metsa_Kit (PlasticLeaves) KPertiet_MonochromaticsOverlaysNo5 KPertiet_PetitePaperFlowers KPertiet_SpringBranchesNo2 KPertiet_SpringFields_Kit (VintageStickers) KPertiet_SummerGardens KPertiet_SummerGardensBlendablesPaint KPertiet_SummerGardensSolids KPertiet_SummerGardens_Kit (Ribbons) KPertiet_WateryLeavesNo2 KPertiet_WordsandArtSpring (signsofSpring) [b]Studio DoubleD[/b] StudioDD_CUWoodlandsClipArtNo2 TFL!!<br /><br />4 comments Fri, 08 May 2015 14:18:19 +0000 Princess Eleanor - One Kit Wonder +1 <a href=";title=princess-eleanor-one-kit-wonder-2b1&amp;cat=1759"><img class="imgborder" title="princess-eleanor---oct20091.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="princess-eleanor---oct20091.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: jesshunt<br /><br />Description}: All this talk of a new princess and this one kit wonder challenge had me looking back at baby pictures of my own princess :) Quote found on pinterest (unsure of the source) “The day you were born, the world had to make room for a little more fancy” Supplies (found here at Designer Digitals): [u][b][url=]Princess Fairy Tale Kit[/url][/b][/u] - Katie Pertiet [u][b][url=]Atlantic Transfers No. 01[/url][/b][/u] - Katie Pertiet<br /><br />8 comments Fri, 08 May 2015 04:01:13 +0000 the gum chewing princess no. 2 <a href=";title=the-gum-chewing-princess-no-2&amp;cat=1759"><img class="imgborder" title="the_gum_chewing_princess_no21.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="the_gum_chewing_princess_no21.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: lizj<br /><br />Description}: We're using a really sweet kit this week for the [u][b][url=]one kit challenge[/url][/b][/u] called &quot;Princess Fairy Tale.&quot; Some stories are just begging for the right kit, like this one. The title is due to the fact that this little princess's twin sister was first onto the stage. I hope you'll play along in this challenge!
