So, I'm playing a little catch-up this week after a month full of photo editing! I'm almost through all 9 sessions I had! Really happy to be busy and really happy to see the light at the end of this tunnel before I fill up again in Oct/Nov!
So, here are a couple Project Life pages I have to share today. The first is from Boston & Teagan's preschool end-of-year program. It was the first time we saw them "perform" for anything. They didn't disappoint! They stood up on that stage and had a fist fight, knocked each other's hats off and gave dirty looks. At one point, Addy got away from us and ran up to the stage, to which the girls laid down on the stage during a song to talk to her. ugh. Also, the girls were asked to tell the teachers what they wanted to be when they grow up. My girls responses?
Boston: "a beautiful rainbow over a garden"
I'm sorry, what?
We have some learning to do in this house. I don't even know where Boston's response came from! We don't have a garden. Truth. We do have video of the entire ordeal which proves that it really did happen and that they were, in fact, the worst-behaved children in the entire school that afternoon. A proud parent moment, to be sure.
Both sides of the layout together.
How cute is that Smarty Pants card from Design Editor? I love. You can also see that I added a tweet from that day (which I think is such a great snapshot of real moments).
On this page, I added the pictures of the girls teachers and then the photo fail of the 3 girls together from the morning. I'm terrible with my own kids and a camera in my hand. Additionally, I added an Instagram photo with the caption to record Addy's monumental melt-down when we went to pick out teacher gifts.
Next up is the 12 of 12 layout from August. M and I happened to be out of town for a wedding in August. We had a really nice day together, even though it was cut short because he had to go back and be with the girls at home and I had to drive to Tulsa from OKC for a visit with my grandma (who was sick) and a photo shoot. Also, I had very little desire to use my camera after photographing the wedding the previous day. 2000 photos will do that to a girl! :)
Another set of cards from Design Editor here for the "He Said/She Said" portion of the page in the top right corner. I love this part of the page. Also, that black and white photo in the bottom right is one of my favorite Chihuly pieces of art. It's actually a color photo, if you can believe that. The whites in the piece are so white and the ceiling is perfectly black. I stood below the chandelier and shot directly upward to get this shot. I love it. There is no doubt that I'll frame a few of these photos in the house.
Dale Chihuly is my favorite artist. Every time I see his work my mouth gapes open like an idiot. It's just awe-inspiring. I can't believe the colors in his pieces are even real. I've seen his work 6 or 7 times now and every time it's as amazing as the first. M and I got to see his exhibit at the OKC Museum of Art on the 12th. I had been about 6 years previous with my mom and brother, Aaron, and it was there that I realized I might be falling in love with M. I thought about him a lot while I was there without him. It was nice to go back there with him.
