You may have noticed that things look a little different around here (neater, I hope). I have been wanting to give the blog a little face lift for a while. My html and photoshop skills are very very new and I'm still getting the hang of it all. I haven't taken any classes or anything. Basically, I call my husband at work anytime I don't know how to do something. I'm learning different hot keys and photoshop tricks over the phone on a daily basis. Therefor, my learning process has been slow, but one that I am eager to conquer.

I used different elements from three different sites for the design. Everything I used was free and came with multiple options (colors, patterns, textures, etc). Pugly Pixel has a lot of freebies on her site! That's where I found Fuzzimo and Mellow Mint as well. (Check out the links at the bottom of this post to get the same design elements)

I have been practicing with our camera too. I definitely have no desire to be a photographer (editing photos is one of my least favorite things to do) but I enjoy taking somewhat quality photos at family gatherings. These pictures are from Mother's Day weekend. There were so many to choose from, but here's just a few.

These two seem to be getting cuter and cuter every time I see them. Kaleigh and Mary Jane are leaving this next Wednesday for Germany. I can't believe it! We're all trying to see each other as much as we can before that happens. A long with that, I'm throwing a baby shower this Saturday. This is why it's been a little quiet around here lately. I'll share pictures of the shower once it's done. I'm making lots of little decorations that I'm' excited to share.

On a random note: I'm having a much needed girls night tonight. We got tickets to Eisley tonight! I can't wait! Hope you are enjoying your day. Tomorrow's Friday :)
