Yesterday, being Saturday, meant Soccer for Joel. He just absolutely LOVES playing soccer....and this year he is in a pretty good team, so far they are undefeated. Whereas last year, they didn't win a single game....until their very last game of the season, and they drew. I know that the game isn't just about winning....but boy did he used to get upset & disappointed that each week they just didn't get anywhere...but the whole team never, ever gave up....they would always turn up each week and give it their best. And that's what the game is all about. But he is absolutely loving this year, because they're doing so well...and playing brilliantly.

I snapped a few photos at the game yesterday....and for the amount of photos that I took, I'm quite happy with the 6-8 or so that ended up being good shots. Although, I must admit that there were a few really good shots that I missed....Joel scored 3 goals yesterday, and I only managed to get 1 of them :( ..... I was too busy "watching" and getting excited, that I would forget to take the photos (LOL).....GRRRRR....silly me! are some of the out for future layouts using some of these pics....

Joel about to attempt a shot at goal....but this one was saved by the goaly.

You can't see with the smaller version of this pic...but these 2 are really giving each other the evil eye...LOL. They're waiting & preparing for a corner kick and are keeping their eye on each other.

This is the one that I actually got a pic of the goal that Joel scored.

And this one has been cropped from the photo above....wanted a good, close up pic of him in action.

yesterday was also team photo while the photographer was setting them up for their photo.....I snapped a couple of shots for future LO's. :)

Quick catchup....

I have had such a lazy day today...and loving it! I've spent most of the day on the computer! :-O(shhhh don't tell anyone)....including sorting out photos & putting them on to discs ....something that I've needed to do for quite some time. When my last computer DIED, I lost all the photos because I hadn't put them on to a disc....learnt my lesson there.

Just thought I'd catch up on a few layouts that I haven't posted....

A LO I did at my weekly crop that I go to....using Kaisercraft "Blushed" range...and lots of flowers that I seemed to go crazy with!

A challenge from the cyber crop at Scrapbook n bits last Saturday scrap a christmas photo with non christmas papers ... something I'd never have thought to do! I think this LO needs something else added to it....still playing with it atm.

This LO was also a part of the cyber crop over at Scrapbook n was a free class by Julie Collins...thanks Julie!

This one is from the "Behind the Scenes" class that I did over at Kim Archer workshops....has lots of journaling under a big flap. Love the design of this one. The photo is in Florence back in 1985 when I banged into my cousin....and hence the need for alot of journaling to tell the story of how that happened.

This LO was a challenge at Scrapbook n Bits that was a part of their Christmas in July theme....had to use christmas PP's, for a non christmas photo. I used BG Blizten range....perhaps it's not the most christmassy of papers...but it went really well for these pics from our visit to the Greek Island of Spetse back in 1985. Love the way it turned out.

I think that's about it...I'm sure there's probably more LO's, but I've kinda lost track of what I've posted & what I haven't.

Thanks for dropping by.....till next time, Toodlepip!
