People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world your best and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway.
-Mother Teresa

End of the race

Well the digital scrapbook race is over and these are my last pages for it. This first one I had to use 50 diferent elements from at least 10 different designers.

We had to do some altered art for a page and this is my interpretation of it. I love this picture of her. I wanted it to look like she is imagining all sorts of cool things.
This last page we had to have some wings on it. I loved this paper when I saw it and wanted to keep the colors and not use a bunch of elements to distract from it. I played around with some blending modes in photoshop and I kind of like how the pictures on the sides turned out. Kind of funky but kind of cool.
I hope everyone is doing well. Take care and leave me a note to let me know you are still alive.

The pages turned out really nice! I don't think your little ones could take a bad picture if they tried!

I am still alive; however, Jared says he's not too sure. Regardless, we like, no love, your new pages.
PS. Must be nice to always get to see mom and dad. You hog face! ;)

Always lovin' your pages. Are you a little relieved or dissapointed that the challenge is over? I know you'll still be digi scrappin' so it's all good, right? Your girls are so dang beautiful! I have loved every picture of them. The ones of Regan looking "thoughtful" with the sunshine on her face and hair are the prettiest I think! Hope you have a fun weekend girl!

Kristal, this is Teanne Reed (except it's not Reed anymore) I was just looking at Katie's blog and saw a link to yours. It's nice to catch up after so many years. Congratulations on your beautiful family. Your daughters look like such a joy. Isn't motherhood great? Today I was just sitting on the floor laughing with my daughter and thinking how great it is to be a mom.
Take care!

First off thank you for the advice on fixing the size of my pictures! It worked! Secondly you have such a beutiful family! I would love to get into the digital scrapbooking, but I just can't seem to figure it out and I am pretty decent on a computer! LOL So maybe when you have a minute you can tell me where to start!
