Just one kit with a bazillion goodies can be enough to get a layout or four done! *grin* I used the wonderful school-themed kit Lynn chose and my ONE other item... the epoxy bubbles from the &quot;Swimmies&quot; kit! I actually had one other item on the layout (a tag) from the &quot;Swimmies&quot; kit, but then I reread Lynn's rules: Only ONE item outside the kit! So the tag had to go! *wink* This is silly but it's a story that needed to be told and it actually does sorta/kinda relate to school... read on! *grin* Yes, the fish is named Hannibal and Shannon made the placard kind of as a joke because I keep calling him/her &quot;Fishy&quot;... ha! And, yes, there's a screen on top of the bowl... one day while DH was eating breakfast, the fish literally jumped out of the bowl and was flopping on the floor! Dumb fish! LOL [U]JOURNALING[/U] HOW TO SAVE A GOLDFISH By Rick Boler Take the dog for a walk at Kaiser Park early in the the morning after the Kaiser Elementary School “Spring Fair”. See something shiny in the thick grass. Look closer and pick it up. Observe a baggie with a goldfish swimming around in it. Assume some kid dropped it at the fair the night before. (Or maybe it was some uncaring parent who didn’t want the hassle of fish ownership. Ha.) Bring it home and leave it on the counter in Debi’s big glass mixing bowl. Have Debi and Shannon find the fish and immediately go to Petco and buy fish supplies. Have them go back to Petco three weeks later for a bigger bowl and more supplies. Never in a million years expect said fish to be fat and happy and still alive almost 1½ years later!

Although, in the end I didn't use alot of the &quot;school&quot; elements... hmmmm... I'm such a rebel! LOL For my daughter, back-to-school meant moving into her dorm early as a member of the women's soccer team since they started training two weeks prior to classes starting. Which was kind of strange because we moved in at night and there was hardly anyone around! Way different than last year! But, it's all good! I always struggle with the mash-ups because there are soooo many wonderful goodies to choose from and as a &quot;minimalist&quot; (ha) I struggle with lots of goodies, but I love a good challenge and I think I've stayed true to &quot;me&quot; on this layout! (Well, except... look at that... striped paper again in the background! *wink*) Thanks for the challenge, Bailey! [U]JOURNALING[/U] You got to move in early, during soccer tryouts. It was a bit strange because it was about 9:00 at night and hardly anyone was around! And we didn’t have all of your things either. But, Dad and I came back on Sunday with both cars loaded and within a few hours your room was finished! So far, no roommate (your assigned roommate cancelled the week before)... we’ll have to wait and see if you get a new one!

[U]JOURNALING[/U] ...THE PIECES OF THE PUZZLE ARE FALLING INTO PLACE... You’ve had two very different, unique years of experience since high school and, while I wish that things would’ve been smoother for you, I believe these challenges have helped you clarify what’s important to you and focus on what you want to accomplish in college and in the future. These experiences have helped you grow, mature and gain confidence and they will help shape your future in positive ways. And, I’m very happy that this year has already been so positive. You’re attending a top-notch university with strong academics and a smaller student body... I’m certain you will excel in the classroom! You’re also a member of the NCAA women’s soccer team, which has already provided you with a core group of friends, not to mention playing your favorite sport!

NOT! No perfection seen here... very far from it! But, I'm learning to age with grace (I think!) as I get older! Hey, you can either fight or go with the flow 'cuz the birthdays don't stop for anyone! LOL (Photo by Shannon on her iPhone in a dark --but delish!-- Italian restaurant for my family birthday dinner! It's certainly not the greatest pic--I think I look kinda tired--but it was the 'official' birthday photo!) There's a fun celebration of all things birthday on the [u][b][url=http://www.designerdigitals.com/digital-scrapbooking/blog/]DD blog [/b][/url][/u]this week! Come join in the challenge! [U]JOURNALING[/U] Oh, I’m “aged”, all right... but certainly NOT to “perfection”! But, hey... I still have a lot of years in me, so maybe I’ll hit “perfection” one of these days... hahaha! In the meantime, I‘ll take all the birthdays I can get... even though the number keeps getting bigger! But, like Jenny wrote in my birthday card: Age is simply the number of years the world has been enjoying you! I love that! And, heck.. you can’t stop birthdays from coming so why not revel in the fact that you’ve lived this long and why not feel good about it? I mean, of course, I’d rather be 30 again, but I’m not, so I’m going to focus on the positives about being “old” and just go from there. No, I don’t have the body of a 30-year-old (or even a 50-year-old... ha!), but I’m in pretty good shape. I can still comfortably run 3-4 miles... albeit not with blazing speed... and I can kick some serious “Body Combat” butt! I have wrinkles, sure, but I don’t look totally wrinkly. I’m not skinny, but I look good in most of my clothes (At least I think I do!) and I can still keep up with my young adult kids... except staying out until 3am! Yes, I’m 60 years old and NOT perfect, but I’m looking forward to many more years of “being old”!

I used the arrow, striped paper and striped pocket card from Katie's great freebie. I toned down the paper by blending it with a &quot;Just Linens&quot; paper. I absolutely loved the decorative boxes with the big framed &quot;X&quot; in Hillarey's inspiration piece so I mimicked that by framing a white sticker &quot;M&quot;. I added a few brads in the bold peach color for a little extra blast of color! Otherwise, it's pretty clean and simple... *grin* Thanks for the challenge, Hillarey! This is an 'old' photo (2009) that perfectly document's my son's car addiction (it runs in the family!)... he's got a pretty awesome car right now, but it's not quite as awesome as a BMW &quot;M&quot; series or Audi &quot;S&quot; series... poor kid... hahaha!

I had to turn my layout onto it's side to accommodate my photos, but I still used three pics (perfect), framed them and layered them over another frame.

You had a great time, but at first, you weren’t that thrilled about going... not that you don’t love the fair and not that going with Nico was a bad thing. It was just about having to avoid all those crazy, wild and delicious foods! You’ve been so dedicated to maintaining healthy eating habits and staying fit for soccer, that you were a tad leery about hitting up the fair!

So, of course, we had to go see it! To be honest, the exhibit itself was a bit of a disappointment, except the welcoming graphic and the cool painting of Samuel Eto’o (Cameroon) displayed alone on a vast white wall. But, Shannon and I always love visiting LACMA and touring the different galleries. And, we also enjoyed a most delicious lunch at Tender Greens in Culver City.

I use them as &quot;bullet points&quot; and at the end of twists and loops or at the end of a journaling block, like a period. There are soooooo many more wonderful ways to use these little gems! On this layout, I created a &quot;doggie pawprint&quot;... *grin* And, I always add PINK flairs to my dog layouts... her AKC registered name is &quot;Kyna Pink&quot;.

Right up my alley! *wink* But, it was a bit of a challenge... Mollie only wanted us to use ONE letter! Hmmmmm... As I pondered the challenge, it came to me that the letter &quot;D&quot; has been a big part of my life, so to speak, and this layout was born! (And, it did occur to me as I worked on this that it's kinda silly, but, hey... what the heck! It was fun!) And, oh, wow... I don't know that I've ever had such a long, long list of credits! LOL But, it sure was fun going on the hunt for different &quot;D&quot;s... I found bazillions of great alphas in the store, on their own and inside kits! [U]JOURNALING[/U] One could say that the letter “D” has been a part of my life since the day I was born! Actually, it was a few days after I was born. I was expected to be a boy named Bradley and it took a few days for Mom and Dad to come up with “DEBORAH” for me! Most people call me Debi, but Dad calls me “Dee” and Laurie calls me “DeDe”. In college, I decided to go through rush and join a sorority. Any idea what house I pledged? Yep... you guessed it: DELTA DELTA DELTA... the Greek letter “D”! Who saw saw that coming? *wink* And when our son was born, even though we didn’t conscious plan a “D” name, he’s DEREK. And, yeah, I often call him “D”.

(Although it was a bit intimidating to scraplift the boss! LOL) I love all the white space, the offset photo and the perfect elements clustered on Katie's layout. I liked the white and neutral background papers (I swapped my white to the paper strip!) and the stripes, which I duplicated in my brushwork. I used wood veneer for my title, like Katie, and tucked a few elements around the photo. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration, Katie, and thanks for the challenge, Linda!

It pretty much can stand alone, can't it? And, yep... it was really amazing to see the space shuttle &quot;Endeavour&quot; fly over Southern California! My coworker and I spent about an hour on the rooftop of our building to catch a (far away!) glimpse of it, but it flew right over the school where my sister teaches... I have her to thank for the (much-better-than-mine-close-up!) photo! (Photo Credit: Laurie Marks) [u]JOURNALING[/U] The most extraordinary view... U.S. space shuttle “Endeavour” piggy-backed on a “shuttle carrier aircraft” flying over the skies of Southern California on its way to its final destination at the California Science Center in Exposition Park, near USC, in Los Angeles. While Jenny and I viewed the Endeavour from afar on top of the roof of Newport Lido, Laurie snapped this photo as the shuttle literally flew over her school!

I also went with a neutral background, but darkened it up. I kept my labels smaller (I had more than five things, remember?) and used Katie's &quot;Chalked Flakes&quot; and twist brushes. Shannon had so much fun and took so many photos over her winter break that she created a photobook (I was so happy!)... I used the cover of her book for this layout! Thanks for the inspiration, Aino! [u]JOURNALING[/U] Shannon had a most wonderful and fun winter break this year! A whole month to enjoy her best friends! And the family! *smiley* She took so many fun photos and created a photobook.

A photo from a long time ago... the first trip to Yosemite for my kids and nephew/godson. My parents were amazing to take three young children exploring all over the western US... what fabulous experiences they all had! Shannon wrote a 9-page essay on Yosemite for one of her classes and asked me for a few photos and this is one of them... I'm sure the photos will help her get an &quot;A&quot; on her paper! [U]JOURNALING[/U] To illustrate an essay Shannon was writing about Yosemite, she asked me for a few photos... this is one I found. It was the summer of 1999 and Mom and Dad took Derek, Shannon and Walker to one of their most favorite places in the world: Yosemite National Park. They spent nearly a week there, camping in the motorhome and taking in all the beauty and wonder and majesty of Yosemite. This photo was taken at Mirror Lake, at the foot of Half Dome.

And proceeded to spend the next 3½ hours inside the store! We looked, we touched, we asked questions, we balked at some of the prices... crazy! When I started getting a little hungry, I gasped when I saw it was after 4:00pm! So, I suggested we finish up and head out to lunch... er... an early dinner! Dad wholeheartedly agreed, but as we passed this mirror, I stopped and said to Dad... FIRST LET'S TAKE A SELFIE And [i]then[/i] we headed out to lunch! *smiley* Dad suggested we try the Black Bear Diner and so we did.

Thanks to one of Shannon's teammates' dad who traveled to Illinois a few weeks ago for a big university club soccer tournament, I have photos! WooHoo! And whilst he didn't capture the goal and the congratulatory group was running [i]away[/i] from the camera and you can't really see Shannon, he did capture the joy of the girls after she scored a goal that gave the team a boost to come back from a 0-2 deficit to tie the game! WooHoo! Anyways, he took a few (ha) more photos, so there [i]will[/i] be a companion page to this one... be warned! LOL [U]JOURNALING[/U] Happiness is... ...you playing soccer, of course! ...me having photos of you playing soccer! Thank you, Kiley’s dad! ...having you score on a corner kick (vs. Bradley University) and putting your team back in the game to rally for a tie! ...seeing the smile on your face even though I actually can’t quite see all of your face in the photos! But, I *know* exactly how you look! *smiley* Happy!

And, it's still so nice to see they like spending time together even though they're all 'grown up'! [U]JOURNALING[/U] I was so happy to hear that you drove up to Torrance for Easter Brunch with the Marks family, especially since I was in Minnesota with Shannon. Although I’m sure it was more about seeing Walker than having brunch! *smiley* Laurie took this quick shot of you two... not the best quality but I love it nonetheless! It’s the two of you... cousins and friends... even at the ages of 19 and 23, you still love spending time together. Which is actually pretty great! And, why yes... this IS the second time I've used this template! This time, I used it as Cathy designed it: 8½x11! It's just such a perfect and simple, classic design... how can I NOT keep using it? *grin* [U]ALL SUPPLIES FROM DESIGNER DIGITALS[/U] [B]KATIE PERTIET[/B] [u][b][url=http://www.designerdigitals.com/digital-scrapbooking/supplies/product_info.php/products_id/17920]Anzio Solids Paper Pack[/url][/b][/u] (background paper) [u][b][url=http://www.designerdigitals.com/digital-scrapbooking/supplies/product_info.php/products_id/17924]Anzio Add-On Paper Pack[/url][/b][/u] (purple chevron paper) [u][b][url=http://www.designerdigitals.com/digital-scrapbooking/supplies/product_info.php/products_id/17930]Bold and Scripted Brushes and Stamps No. 12[/url][/b][/u] (title word art) [u][b][url=http://www.designerdigitals.com/digital-scrapbooking/supplies/product_info.php/products_id/15227]Thin Classic Photo Frames Curled and Flat No. 01[/url][/b][/u] (the photo frame... my favorite set, I think!)
