First off, big congrats to Mandy who won my RAK RAK challenge! I had Jamie pic a number between 1 and 16 (the number of entries) and Mandy won! Her pack of goodies is on its way!

So on to me…
I've been scrapping like a crazy person lately! I'm really on a roll with our honeymoon pics, and am having tons of fun with the 8.5 x 11 size. I've been so bust creating pages, in fact, that I haven't had time to post them here, so I've got quite a few! LOL

Journaling reads: Every little girl has dreams for when she grows up… to be president, to have a fairy princess wedding, to always eat ice cream for dinner, every little girl has a different dream. Mine was to go to Paris. • When I was six, we had an exchange student from France live with us for a year, and ever since Nathalie came into our lives, I have wanted to go to France. It’s as simple as that. Now that I’ve done it, I’ve been to the top of the Eiffel Tower and back, and I still can’t believe it! It was the longest I’d wanted anything in my life. When I first dreamt of Paris, boys had cooties and I loved watching the Smurfs on Saturday mornings. • So much has changed since then, but not my desire to make this journey. France was everything I hoped for, and so, so much more. • We’re already saving our pennies for the next trip… I can’t wait to go back!

Us + French cafe + tabletop tripod + remote= Cheap entertainment! These are just 2 of about a dozen photos we took that morning! LOL

Title taken from Guinness' own advertising… Jamie's first pint, us at the Gravity Bar overlooking Dublin, and a shot of the Gravity Bar from the street below.

In case you can't read the wall, this is Strawberry Field in Liverpool. ‘Nuff said.

The Tower of London and a segment of original Roman wall in London, some 2000 years old. We spent a lot of time marvelling at how *not* old everything here in the States is in comparison. I realize now that putting the bracket at Jamie and the title might make it look like I'm talking about him, but I swear I'm not! LOL

The homes the Beatles lived in while growing up in Liverpool… John's at the top, Paul's on the left, George on the right. We drove past Ringo's street but didn't actually go down it. Are you surprised? LOL

Pretty self-explanatory. Views were snapped at each of the levels of the tower.

Journaling reads: On our first day in Liverpool, we were just exploring the Cavern Quarter on our own, taking it all in. Walking down Mathew Street, we were approached by an old man who told us to “Always look up in Liverpool!” We did, and found this statue in between the windows of the second floor. We have this man telling us his own Cavern stories on video… a truly memorable tidbit from our trip.

We spent a lot of time waiting for trains in London… we had to do something to entertain ourselves! This pic is the result.

Some Hambly love… a bunch of little pics that won't necessarily get their own pages, but that I didn't want to exclude.

One of my favorites I've done in a long time! Pics from our cruise on the Seine.

In line to get into the Louvre.

More Louvre photos…

Um. Do I really need to say anything about this one?

And a couple of others I've done recently…

Finally did a page based on this blog entry.

A pic of Jamie from Disneyland in February… this is an assignment for the store.

Blowing out the candles on my birthday “pile of fruit” at Fondue Fred. So fun!

This photo looks like such a fun party to me! (And it totally was!) I just love all the action in it, and I can hear the buzzing of conversation going on. Just love it!

This was the last of my kid's camp projects… had a lot of fun this summer with these classes!

So, see? I'm not kidding! I've been on a hot streak for the last month or so!

  1. Oh how exciting
    & Thank you ever so much for sponsoring the idea of RAKs in our own community. It is a lovely concept that more people should try more often because after all isn’t it all about making our world a nicer place to be.

    Great pictures of your trip to Europe and congrats on finally getting to Paris.
