Good morning all! I have decided that is has been waaaayyyy to long since I have scrapbooked - after all, that is my first love and I have neglected it because I have been trying to practice my card making and stamping! But, last night I decided to do a layout and ended up with a double 12x12 layout of my daughter at Horseback Riding Camp. This was a Girl Scout trip and she stayed at the camp for one week - YIKES! I really really missed her - she was only nine and she had never gone to overnight camp before but my BF's daughter Joey went too and the camp was only an hour away so I gave in and let her go! She had a wonderful time and the last day Tony and I drove up to watch her perform on her horse - she cantered, pranced, walked, and ran around the ring and was so very proud of herself! She even won an award for being the Most Natural Horseman! So, I used the pics from that last day to make this layout. I incorporated some chipboard, rub-ons and stamps into this layout and I think it turned out pretty well. I will put the recipe for this on the bottom so you can see what I used. It sure felt good to scrapbook again and I have decided I am going to do a lot more in the future - I have TONS of pics that have not been scrapped yet and it is high time I get going. So, you will be seeing more of these but still some cards because I still need the practice - LOL! Cardmaking does not come easy to me AT ALL - give me a 12x12 layout anyday!! So, here is the recipe:

I have always wanted to write a book and have it published. I have actually started one and hope to complete it and send it in. I have written lots of short stories and actually had a real-time journal while I was in Iraq.
