Yay!! I got ahead a little bit for my LOAD challenge. I used my Oct Studio Calico kit for all of these layouts. On my Prefer to Be layout I misted the title and colored the edges of the MR envie with an American Crafts metallic marker that I got in a Scrapgoods kit. The middle layout is just a simple layout with some older pics of my sis Becky, my mom and dad, and me on our cross country move to New Mexico. I loved it while we lived there - but it was only very briefly! The last layout is some random pics at the football games with Danielle. We just love football, but the best part for us is the band! We all are just a bunch of band geeks! Michael and I met each other in band (him - trombone; me - sax), Samantha played sax, Jonathan played trombone, and now Danielle plays the sax. I just want to say that we did not make the kids play the instruments that we played in band - they chose them themselves. But I was glad they followed the tradition :)!
