More layouts from this weekend

So for the last couple of months, I have not been in a very good place physically and emotionally and over the last couple of weeks I have been really looking at myself and what I need in my life to make me the best Rebecca I can do, and one of the things I need to do is take more photos of myself. . .not only take more photos of myself but every photo i take of myself find atleast three things I like about that photo.

Canada 150: when my son and I went to the canada 150 celebrations this past july 1st at jubilee park in Spruce Grove we went into the photo booth. When i got the photos, my first reaction was to throw it out because I looked awful, either my eyes were closed, i was making weird squinty eyes or just looked off. But then I thought no - - this is me, I am not perfect all the time and that is okay!!!! So instead of looking at the terrible photos I look at the joy in our faces and remember all the fun we had that day!! Based on Creative Scrapbooker Magazine August Sketchy challenge:

Also entering in Challenge YOUrself using diecuts. . .both circles were cut using die cuts, the maple leaves and the coffee cups are also cut using diecuts

Sweet girl: our wonderful sweet indoor cat always wants to come out with us in the summer time, so one day we decided to let her come out on her leash. Based on sketch~n~scrap #135

Girl Birthdays

I am so behind in my scrapping that I am still need to scrap last year's birthday parties and we are attending this years birthday parties, so when i saw Echo Park's mini theme girl birthday I thought perfect this will motivate me!!!!!

Birthday Party: based on Sketch~n~scrap #134

Make a wish: based on Let's Scrap August 1 2017 sketch (right hand side) but couldn't get my act in gear to submit it in time lol

Soccer spring 2017

We were super excited that we could enrol Kyle in outdoor soccer this past year, I always take tons and tons of photos and since we were busy opening a tattoo shop, my husband was often at the shop so I took even more photos so he could see how kyle was doing.

Soccer Practice: these were taken the very first practice where he got his jersey and learned basic soccer skills. I used Let's Scrap Augst 15 2017 sketch

Professional photo: my husband and I were able to sneak away for a day/night but unfortunately that day fell on soccer photo day. I was so happy when my husband's parents (where kyle was spending the night) offered to take him for us!!! I am so in love with how this photo turned out, I ordered extras and gave them to all the parents/grandparents/aunts and uncles. I am submitting this for August's Scrap the Boys (using a 5x7 or larger photo)

 Hello thanks xoxoxo: I just love these photos, they were taken at the last soccer practice after the kids vs parents game and medal ceremony. Everyone looks so happy and excited. I scraplifted a layout from Paper Issues (friends & fans)

Soccer: team celebration: these photos were taken after all the kids received their medals, they were all so proud they wanted to do a celebratory photo. Based on a Paper Issues (friends & fans) sketch

Soccer Star: I don't know who was more excited kyle getting a medal - me or him (lol). I think kyle was a little more excited as he had to skype with both sets of grandparents when he got home and slept with his medal that night (lol love that kid). I used Sketch~n~scrap #134
