School Portraits Album Flip-through

We have decided to go ahead and have an in-person open house for Gabe, after all, but I started this blog to share his albums, and I will finish! 🙂 We have plenty of family out of town and out of state, who won’t be able to attend, anyway. So hopefully this blog will stillContinue reading “School Portraits Album Flip-through”

So, so sick!

Right now, people all over the world are feeling the heart-wrenching pain of having loved ones in the hospital. Making it much worse is the fact that the people in the hospital are often alone, because visitors are being kept at bay to control the spread of coronavirus. When our younger son (he’s 6) cameContinue reading “So, so sick!”

A couple of housekeeping items…

We’ve probably all been attending webinars and virtual conference calls during this time, so “a couple of housekeeping items” might be a familiar phrase lately. My apologies for sounding a bit cliche. Just felt appropriate for the times. Anyway, I wanted to mention a couple of things about this good ol’ blog. First, I don’tContinue reading “A couple of housekeeping items…”

School Layout: Children’s Museum Field Trip

One of my favorite ways to capture the life of one of my kids as a student is to chaperone field trips. The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis has always been one of my kids’ favorite places to visit, but when they get to go with a classroom full of friends, it’s even more enjoyable!

Sports Album: Soccer

Soccer pages round out the rest of Gabe’s sports album, although there are still plenty of pages (especially of action photos) that I want to do for these seasons, too! Gabe played soccer from the time he was 4 until he was 12 (or maybe until the end of age 11?) years old. He hasContinue reading “Sports Album: Soccer”

Sports Album: Basketball

Basketball has been another constant in Gabe’s life so far. He has played every year since he was 7 years old. He played several years of recreational basketball through our town’s league. He also played a year for school, in 8th grade, before deciding he had a lot more fun playing on a rec leagueContinue reading “Sports Album: Basketball”

Sports Album: Baseball

Gabe played baseball from age 5 to age 17, multiple times a year, so we are swimming in baseball photos! I wanted to make sure the main team and player photos were scrapped, so I created a template that I could use for all of his seasons, just changing out the paper and embellishments. You’llContinue reading “Sports Album: Baseball”

Sports Album: Title Page

For Gabe’s sports album, I wanted to create a cover that had a mix of photos covering various sports throughout the years. So this is what came together. His three main sports were soccer (which he quit at about age 12), basketball and baseball. So this page has a mix of all three. Eventually, IContinue reading “Sports Album: Title Page”
