Live Scrapbooking!

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Today as I was about to prepare dinner I noticed all 3 of my boys were out front playing so nicely together.  I grabbed my camera and quickly snapped some fun shots.  Then the thought occurred to me....  Is there a such a thing as "Live Scrapbooking"?  If not, I think I have just invented a fun new idea that I will use often!!  I uploaded the pictures within a few minutes after I took them and made a quick digital scrapbook page.  One of my thoughts was that I am forgetting so many of the details behind my pictures.  I am not organized enough to remember to write down things in a notebook for all of my pictures.  I am still a chronological scrapbooker, of course, but this is a nice way I can make some pages while I still remember why I took the pictures!

BTW - Do you LOVE our Oklahoma blizzard in the background?  We were supposed to get 4-8 inches of snow last night.  Woke up, and had a dusting, which melted in a couple of hours.  Welcome to Oklahoma!  Of course, the North Western part got plenty of snow for ALL of the state!  YIKES!  My kids woke up expecting to have the day off and I, enthusiastically lovingly, sent them out the door.  :)
(I used a Digital Kit from Die Cuts with a View called Skateboard.  I believe I got it from Jessicasprague.com but I can't remember.)

I print my pages out through an online company www.scrappingsimply.com.

As I am scrapbooking my current pictures I am also scrapbooking from where I am chronologically.  So I am working on February 2013 and October 2009.  Here is a page from that folder.

Valentine's Day Digital Scrapbook Pages

Happy Sunday Everyone!
First, I want to start by thanking those of you who left me such nice comments on my last post.  I have been feeling a bit overwhelmed lately with all that I have on my plate and when I expressed it to you guys I felt nothing but support.  Thank you for that.  I feel your love and friendship.  So, with that said.....  I thought I would share my Valentine's Day with you all. 

Today is Sunday, so after church I usually take time to do a little family history work, also known as scrapbooking!  I have been digitial scrapbooking a lot lately, simply because it is faster and also, I can make discs for all my children when they move out.  I use Photoshop Elements.  Jessicasprague.com has a lot of great classes you can take if you are brand new to digi scrapbooking.  I learned a lot from YouTube tutorials as well.  Here are some pages that I made today.  Love to you all!  I hope you are doing well.  I really and truly appreciate your comments.  Sometimes when I blog, I feel like I am talking to myself.  LOL!  I'm sure you feel like that, too.

Valentine's Goodie Bags!

 Hello Everyone!

Long time, no post!  Right???  I honestly just haven't been in the blogging mood.  I'm not sure what's going to happen to My Pink Stamper right now.  I have so many things going on and just being a mom is taking up so much time.  There is a season to everything we do and I am thinking that my blog season might be passing soon.  That sounds so sad, huh??  I will never leave you guys or forget you but you might not hear from me nearly as much as you have in the past.  I'll try to share when I can but can't promise much.  

The flu that I had for about 2 weeks just knocked me out.  When I recovered, I realized that a lot of things in my house have been passed up.  I am trying to spend more time preparing meals for my family and making a peaceful, clean, safe place for them.  

I made some goodie bags last night for my boys' Valentine parties tomorrow.  Hope you like them!!  I used Create a Critter and one of my Punny-licious stamp sets.  I will try to share more pics from our Valentine's Day activities tomorrow.  Remember that I always do a PINK breakfast for my kids!  I already bought everything.  This year I am going to add heart-shaped pancakes to the mix!  I am also making a special dinner for them, too!

Happy Sunday!

Hello Friends!

I hope you are having a GREAT Sunday!  Mine has been very spiritually uplifting.  We had a great church service which was focused around the topic of Prayer.  Then after church, the missionaries came over for dinner, to share a message with us, and then my husband got to go out on visits with them this evening.  I've just been hanging out with the kids while they play.  It's almost bedtime!  Yaaay!  I'm ready to start a new week with not being sick!!  The last two weeks have been super rough as I have had the flu for almost 12 days.  So happy to be almost 100% healed.  YAAY!!

Tonight I was looking at videos on our Church's website, www.lds.org, and found one I would like to share with all of you.  As, you and I, are all children of a Father in Heaven who loves us.  :)  Have a great week!!
