I was working this weekend on trying to finish up the final 2 layouts for the cute Tinkerin' kit of the month for my Cherish clubs and was so excited to finally be able to use these adorable pictures of my two youngest kids, Joshua and Amelia, jammin' out with daddy on his guitar. I took these pictures back in November 2007 and just hadn't found the perfect paper or layout to use them. I just love when I create a layout and can go through my binder and find the perfect pictures already printed and ready to use. The supplies I used for this layout are Tinkerin' level 2 paper and Stickease, Badge Buttons, Summer Carnval Brads, Twilight Ink pad, Sunflower ink pad, and Clover Meadow Green Ink pad.

What you can't see from the pictures is that Joshua had been struggling to quiet down, concentrate and sit on his special "guitar picture" spot on the rug at preschool for many weeks and finally as a last resort we had promised him that if he had 3 good days in a row he could play daddy's cool guitar. Of course it didn't take long and Joshua had earned the privilege of rockin' out with daddy. I can still remember that night as Joshua nearly bursting with excitement watched daddy pull out that precious guitar and sit on the floor. Daddy became an instant magnet and I just took pictures trying to capture the concentration and joy between father and son.

Not to be outdone by her little brother, Amelia had to join the act and get equal time on that guitar. We spent at least an hour or two rockin' on that guitar and I know that none of will ever forget that special night. The title for the layout is TOGETHER...TAKE TIME EVERYDAY TO DO SOMETHING YOU LOVE. I think that sometimes we forget as busy moms, that the most special moments can occur when we take some time and share our passions with our kids!

Lately we've been having family fun playing Guitar Hero: World Tour and I must say we have some budding rock stars in the family. Joshua and Amelia love the drums, and Annaka is working on mastering the guitar and bass. I even enjoy the drums and I like to tease Tedd that I missed my calling in life. I would have made a "cute" drummer in his band. He just laughs and shakes his head! Oh well, I guess I'll just concentrate on voice & piano, and being a great mom and scrapbooker!
