Weekend Adventures Memories Documented and Shared

So our lives are super busy... from school and afterschool commitments, Violin and Band and Guitar Club, Stamp Club, Awanas, Homework, Work and Working Out, then trying to clean the house and connect.. whew! When you have as many kids and activities as we do, finding time to create and document memories has to be scheduled - lol.  So it was fun as I was documenting our weekend adventure to see our youngest get excited to see her picture and to even talk about it.
I love that this quick system allows me to highlight their activities and no pressure to journal too much.  The pictures say so much - it's great to highlight them.  I love how fun it is to celebrate their childhood memories and leave behind a legacy of love and memories and to Share It with them Now.

We are blessed to live in a beautiful community with so much to offer near by.  Here was our little excursion to the Ronald Reagan Library.  This is a fun 'library' were you can walk, touch, and have an interactive experience.  My kids love it.  With something new to see or do around every corner, they are never board.
 
A portion of the Twin Towers resides at this library/museum.  The kids (and us) actually touching this important piece of our history... making sure our children (and us) remember is so near and dear to our hearts. 
This simple pocket style documenting system is so perfectly coordinated with cards, accessories, colors and style.  They fit our life and make it easy to look good as a page pulls together.  These cute wooden accents just add fun and a 'cool factor' to our memories.
My angel, our youngest was delighted to see her in the pictures of our recent trip to the Ronald Reagan Library.  Here the kids were on a mock horse ride with the President and they loved it (with no risk or injury or clean up - lol).  Here the present was touched by the past.  Coordinating stickers in this Everyday Adventure collection make for easy highlighting of our memories.  The journaling pens make it easy to jot down the highlights of our time together - yay!

 When your life is fast paced and full, taking photos is easy (thanks to my Iphone).  I love how with a few spare moments I can document our memories.  Sure, leaving a legacy of love for my family is key but enjoying these memories NOW is wonderful.  Seeing my children, hubby, friends and family as their faces light up to see them re-live our memories.  It's an honor and blessing being a wife, mom, sister and friend.  Documenting our blessed life feeds my soul - so I'm leaving them a legacy of memories while reliving these memories.

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
