A nice surprise...

I've had some inspiration lately, to start cutting into kits that are piling up in my scrap area.  I posted a layout in the Studio Calico and was asked shortly thereafter if it could be shared at  I love this page!  The pictures are from a time when we took very few photos (didn't really have a good camera).

I rarely post layouts online, so this was a nice surprise!

A little basketball.

It's been a long time since I blogged.  Long. Time. 

Life has been busy. 

One thing in our busy life has been basketball.  Both girls are playing basketball.  Two practices a week and one game night.  Craziness.  We finally got a new camera and decided to give it a try.

This was our first attempt at action shots and John is not known for his dexterity with the camera.   So I took some advice from a member at Studio Calico and crossed my fingers.  I set the camera on manual (!!)   50mm  lens, 1.8 f, 1/640, iso 1600.  No flash.

Not great, but not bad for our first try.  There are a few more weeks in the season to practice.
