This new All About My Dad photobook, All About Dad, is priceless! How much fun would it be to have all your kid’s or grandkid’s responses documented to questions like, “What color are Dad’s eyes?” “Why does Mommy love Daddy?” “What does Daddy always say?” “What did you learn this year from Daddy?” or “Which super hero is Daddy most like?” Kids are ALWAYS so creative with their responses – this will be a lot of fun to do and to have forever! This would be an awesome Father’s Day gift!!
Busy, busy, busy! That’s what it has been around here lately. I traveled to Indiana last week for a research trip with a group of ladies from the Louisville Genealogical Society to the Genealogy Center at the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne. It was a great trip with wonderful people and great genealogical finds!
After I got home from that trip we left for Murphy, North Carolina to visit my in-laws for the weekend. My husband Ron and son James were able to help Ron’s parents replace a ceiling fan in their kitchen, install support bars in the shower, fix their truck and do a lot of yard work while we were there. It was great to see them and offer our support. My mother-in-law was thrilled to have me there to play the organ in church on Sunday as they attend a small congregation and do not have an organist so they have programmed hymns that she plays (pushes a button) for everyone to sing along to. I love doing it so I was happy to help and everyone was so appreciative to have live music, which was so sweet!
My son James graduates from high school on Saturday! I have my mom here for the graduation and my sister and nephew coming tomorrow also. So lots going on!

This week my daughter announced her new baby due in November with these cute pictures of my granddaughter holding a chalkboard sign declaring her upcoming status as ‘Big Sister’! So cute!! And so exciting! And ‘Big Sister’ has a new cousin coming in October, so this November baby will be grandbaby #5! Wow – I feel so blessed!
We all know it’s important to document family milestones. And we know that scrapbooking is a fantastic way to do it, but sometimes we don’t scrapbook these events because of our perfectionism. We don’t want to do it unless we can do it ‘right.’ I guess that’s one of the many things I LOVE about MDS. I can do it, do it ‘right’ and do it FAST!
With traditional scrapbooking I would have spent a couple of hours creating a layout for these pictures, but with MDS this layout took me 10 minutes!! I selected the Split Second Designer Template, dropped in the pictures, shifted the ‘arrow’ embellishment a little to fit the picture and added journaling – that’s it! Done!
Yep! I’m featuring the latest downloads today – Thursday. Have you been anticipating the announcement?? Now it’s super easy to host a festive party with the new Wonderland Party Digital Download!!!
