but before i do that...here's a father's day card for my bro-in-law and just a sneaky peeky one for my hubby:
sneaky peekies only of this one, i'll post in full after the 20th, love how this one turned out as well:
i have been working on my everyday album the past few days. all photos have been glued in. added the patterned papers and journaling strips for 5.16.10 thru 5.22.10. working on the last day 5.23.10, need to add the papers, strips. then embellie them all out. i'll take photos once the whole album is complete and post them soon.
i'll be working on a card tomorrow for someone who has helped out my dh a great deal. she is not only a wonderful assistant, but also a beautiful person. gotta also work on another father's day card.
my daughter, maiya, is learning how to ride a bike for the first time. soon she'll be able to ride with the whole family! yey-yah! she has learned to balance and is starting to get the hang of "starting out,", braking and turning. once she gets that, it's all good! my one and only loving dh is teaching her how. i love you babez, thanks so much for doing this and all that you have and will be doing for her! here she is...
