Gymnastics-The End

The last gymnastic meet has come and gone and I'm to happy to say that it ended on a good note. Very good indeed. Morgan's vault score (her weakest event) was the highest she's had this season and her bar score shattered her personal best-a 9.2. She was thrilled. Considering that three weeks ago she had a boot on her foot, competed in a competition where she had to qualify to make it to States and ended the season with a smile, I could not be more happy for her.

I had my camera at most meets photographing Morgan and her teammates. If you know anything about photography, gymnastics is one of the most challenging sports to photograph, especially for an amateur like me. The lighting is poor, no flash is allowed and the movements are very fast. So here's a look at her season with a bit of video thrown in as well.

$h*! My Mom Says

Okay, guilty as charged. I tend to throw around this word a lot especially when it comes to accumulation of junk found scattered around my house.

Yesterday day upon entering Garrett's room a sea of clothes was strewn about. It might not have phased me had his room been absolutely spotless on Wednesday. So knowing I was displeased about his room, Chris sent him to clean it up with a little helper while I slept in this morning.

Here is the little helper's recounting of the tale.

October Scrapbooking

Not much to share for this month, but I do like what I did so that must count for something, right?

This was a lift using some Pink Paislee papers. Turned out to be quite a challenge because I wanted this to have a baby girl feel, but had a whole lot of red in the pictures. Anyway, this is older paper and think it worked perfectly for Morgan's album.

My Minds Eye papers. One of those obsessions I needed to document.

This turned out to be a favorite. I was inspired by the directions for the cathedral quilt found on this blog. There is more journaling behind the picture, but since I knew the crib would be coming down, I wanted one last picture of it. The papers are by Making Memories, some travel line, but I've been saving the paper for something special and I think that it fits well. Also, she used a punch to create the circles and I didn't have a punch so used my Cricut and had to adapt the size and play with it a bit. I'd suggest playing on scrap paper as it did take more paper than I was expecting.

A mix of papers, but the monster paper is Monstrosity by Sassafrass. I used it for some of Jack's party decor so trying to use of the rest of it.

The last is based off a Page Maps sketch. Pictures are from Morgan's 2009 gymnastics season. I used Basic Grey's Oliver which is definitely more masculine, but thought it worked perfectly.

Thanks for looking.
