February 26th Photo - Photograph

My cousin is working on our family history, researching our family tree. He has been able to trace back all the way to 1776! It really is amazing! And, since I am a passionate scrapbooker, I can't wait to put it all together in an album. This is a photograph of my great, great grandparents taken some time around 1898. The photo is in amazingly good condition compared to some of the other ones we came across last night. I really love this photo!

February 25th Photo - Obsession

I got to pick up my latest SU order today. Yippeeee! Guess what I'm doing all weekend?

February 22nd Photo - Winter

I have to thank my friend Donna over on the Island, who's also participating in Project 365, for teaching me how to Vingette my photos. I love this technique! Today's photo is of the girls skiing up at Grouse Mountain.

February 21st Photo - Cookery

We have great neighbours! For the past several years, our neighbours have always shared a BBQ with us. This is our second BBQ that we have purchased together. We BBQ a lot! lol Today's picture is of Hubby and Joe building our latest purchase which, no doubt, will get lots of use in the months ahead! This is serious business. Can't you tell by the look on hubby's face?! lol

I love the contrast of the frost on the green sprout of this little daffodil peeking through the dirt. Ahhh, Spring is not too far away after all.

February 18th - Tie the Knot

Here's a photo of the finished thank you card for my girlfriend Debbie.

February 17th Photo

I spent the entire day at my first aid work shop on the 17th getting re-certified and took this picture when I went for coffee at the local Starbucks.

February 16th Photo - On the Road

I actually took this picture on February 15th on our way to our Scrapaholics crop. Sue was kind enough to drive Izzy and me. I snapped this picture of the two of them in the front seat.

February 15th Photo - Multiples

Ok, time to catch up. I've been taking my photos, just haven't had time to post. So here's the last four days of photos.

On Saturday, February 14th, I prepped for Sunday's crop with the Scrapaholics. I planned to complete my friend's wedding thank you cards but it took me longer than I thought and ended up spending Sunday night and part of Monday evening completing them. I'm happy with how they turned out and think Debbie will be too.

February 14th Photo - Valentine's Day (Red)

Ok, so how lucky am I? My darling husband gave me a wonderful Spa Utopia gift certificate today for Valentine's Day. I can't wait to book my day at the spa! Thank you baby! Love you! xoxo

February 13th Photo - Reading Material

It's time for me to re-new my First Aid training for my job. I will be spending the entire day on Tuesday bandaging and splinting volunteers and performing CPR on "Annie", the notorious 50 pound torso doll. lol I'm required to re-new my First Aid training every two years as I'm the designated WCB First Aid attendent on our site. It always amazes me how fast two years goes by! It feels like I just took the exam 6 months ago! It's not something I look forward to, but this year should be a little more barable as they have recruited firefighters to teach the course instead of us having to go to St. Johns Ambulance training facilities. Wooooo Hooooo!! I think I'll be putting my hand up a few more times this year to volunteer! lol

This beautiful clock belonged to Paul's Farmor and Farfar when the lived in Sweden. Now it hangs in our livingroom. It was given to us by my inlaws when Paul's Farmor passed away several years ago.

February 10th Photo - Chains

On my drive home from work, I spotted this and remembered the theme "Chains" for my photo of the day challenge. I like the perspective I was able to get in this photo.

February 3rd Photo - Like Mother, Like Daughter

Every once in a while, Emily, on her own terms of course, decides to get a little creative. Today after school she felt like making a card because I guess she was inspired watching me prep some of my girlfriend's wedding thank you cards. Is my stash of supplies at risk now??? lol Here's what she came up with.

February 2nd Photo - My Aching Back! (Closely Cropped)

It hurts to sit! It hurts to walk! It hurts to stand! The only way I can get comfortable the past couple days is to lay down on my side and everyone knows it's very difficult to accomplish anything while lying down! Argh! I just want it to stop hurting so I can get back to the gym and lose this tummy that I just know is a major contributing factor!
