This photo was taken just before Christmas 2006. Notice the chipboard, and bling? Didn't use the rub-ons though. Gotta love Basic Grey!

Chatterbox anyone? When I got this picture developed, I knew right away what paper I was going to use. Notice my three favorites on this page? I even did another favorite of mine...hidden jounaling. It's great to use on a page to save space, and it can also hide jounaling you don't want just everyone to read. As soon as Rachel get's the journaling done for this page, it will be complete!

One of our CI's took this candid photograph of PE & RT as they were waiting for Adventure Platoon to march past on their return from one of their many FTX's. This is one of my most favorite candid's of Rachel and I love what this photo stands for. They would run and grab their big alphabet and stand by the road when a company would come back from the field to welcome them home. The cadets are hot, tired, dirty, stinky, but what a nice feeling to hear fellow cadets clapping and cheering when you come marching back on base.
I have been big into journaling lately. I don't know if I will ever get caught up on the girls scrapbooks, so I have decided to take my time and concentrate on recording their achievements through their teenage years. I think is is also extremely important to let them know how I felt about their achievements, so my focus has been more on that than trying to play catch up. That will never happen! I used our 2" Roman Lowercase alphabet fonts at JSI, diecut them out of chipboard and cardstock for the word "achieve".

    I love those little swirl things on the Sisters page. I've been trying to get some ideas generated to do a picture like that of my sister and I.
