A LO, a List & a Funny Story!

I've been busy today! I finally finished a LO - it's been a while. As you can tell, I am way behind on my pics. These are from just before last Christmas. I have come to terms with the

fact that I will always be behind on scrapping :-) There actually was a time BC (Before Children) that I was caught up, and I was trying to come up with events to take pictures at, just so that I could continue to scrap! Only a true scrapper could admit to that :-) I know I'm not the only one that does that - or makes sure my kids have matching outfits in pictures so that I can match papers to the photo's easier! LOL

Here's my pic credits:

Quick Page – Elegance Quick Page # 3 by Doro (Doreen Stolz) (Get it here )
Fonts: Ck Windsong

Special techniques: Dup title layer and changed the color to 2 shades darker than the paper below the title. This gives it a more realistic drop shadow look. The original Quick page did not go with my pictures, but I really liked the feel of it, so I adjusted the hue and saturation until I got colors that went better with my pictures.

Ok, now my funny story. Don't worry, the list is coming...

We recently purchased a new (to us) minivan, and I was really excited about the multi-zone temp control. I can't tell you how many times I'd put my kids in my old car for a quick trip to the store, and find the poor things fast asleep and dripping with sweat because they were just too warm. It didn't matter how high I turned on that a/c, it'd happen every time. So today, on the way home from bible school, I looked at my temp guage, and noticed that it was already 81 degrees out. So, I set my a/c at a comfortable temp in my zone, and cranked up the a/c for the kiddies. A few minutes later, my DD1 (who's 2 1/2) says "Mom, can you turn down that wind?? It's really messing up my hair!!!!" I guess she'll never enjoy riding in a convertable! LOL

Ok, now, here's what you all came for - the LIST:
