Some scrappy goodness

Some of the layouts I created for the December Digi Files have been posted over at the Daily Digi, so I can share them now. The layout above is one of my favorites and illustrates a new, personal trend: texted photos. Whenever I’m away from home, and I feel like I’m missing out, I ask (beg) Mike to text me photos of what they are doing. On this day, I was working at Florida Today and Mike took the kids to a carnival one of his clients was hosting. Cooper spent the better part of the outing in the bounce castle. And had to be forcefully removed … multiple times. Even though I wasn’t there, I feel like I was. I appreciate that my husband willingly sends me the photos and makes an effort to help me document our stories.

I’ve also been using a ton of iPhone photos on my pages. This self-portrait was taken with my iPhone and then tweaked using the Instagram ap, which I love. I seriously love taking photos with my phone. I always, always have it with me … so there is a greater likelihood of my actually capturing the moment if I use me phone. So I do. And I don’t stress too much if the photo isn’t perfect. I’d rather have a crappy photo than no photo at all.
