Boating on the lake for Father's Day Memory Celebrating

Celebrate memories, Happy Memory Documenting Monday!!  I love that my husband told me what he actually wanted for his Father's Day gift this year.  Since we were spending the week of Father's Day on Big Bear Lake - he asked to have us rent a boat on the lake.  So with 6 kids, my hubby and I.. we secured the newest Pontoon boat and on the coldest day of the lake - lol - and windiest - we enjoyed time together.  Join us in this fun adventure.. and see why I couldn't resist documenting this and celebrating the day with our Project Life system.

Let ME give YOU the Gift of Pictures... I don't receive anything for this referral but I found the Coolest App that I have to share with you!  CLICK HERE to see more on the Groovebook App and how to print 100 photos for FREE (yes, Free) from your smart phone!!  Printing your photos is more than 1/2 of the struggle in documenting our lives, isn't it?
My poor hubby - the day wasn't allllll his, lol.   With our oldest daughter driving up the mountain to spend the day with us, having Stephanie with us for the week, we were a full boat and couldn't resist taking turns driving the boat!  Sure, they were short turns - my hubby wouldn't let control up for too long to us crazy women, lol, but it was short-lived fun!
Making the day personalized in my Memory Documenting is easy using our The Open Sea rubber stamp set and the Sahara Sand ink pad.  Adding anchors, compasses and a vintage roster to the Project Life pages was a fun way to personalize this page to my hubby's big day.
So our youngest was super nervous being on the boat... so we found her focusing on her toes and refusing to smile for photos.. lol.  I love how her big sister helped her toe inspection, lol.  With a daughter acting out the deck scene from Titanic and freaking my husband out - lol... it's easy to accent the fun with the Happiness Is accessory pack and it's adhesive die-cuts. 
Getting up close and personal... with China Island and the Observatory, with each other and water spray from the wind and waves.. lol. 
I love the nautical stamped accents to the page using The Open Sea stamp set!!  It's a fun way to highlight my hubby's page and boat love.  Journaling is so easy with the Project Life Journaling pens - and this system makes it easy to journal our memories and let the pictures do most of the talking.
 
Getting up close and personal with the cool landmarks of Big Bear Lake - it's a great way to show the kids what they can see from our deck, up close.  The swallows flying about the Observatory was only visible up close and personal.
I love the colorful accents that coordinate with the Happiness is... Project Life collection.  It's fun to see the memories we had on the lake... and seeing my son in heaven while his dad drove him about on the lake was a blast.

My husband loved having a boat for his Father's Day gift.  Time with his family, the lake, driving a boat (and the newest one at our resort) - it was a blast.  He enjoyed touring the lake and spending time with his kids.  Life is short, taking pictures is great but getting them printed and into a book to document and celebrate our memories is the key to leaving memories of love for our family.  Using the Project Life documenting system makes for quick and beautiful pages that highlight the memories.  Have fun - Join Us for Memory Documenting Monday Posts on my blog and for the Memory Documenting and Celebrating FREE Sunday's!!

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
