Scrapbooking, Camping


Happy Monday everybody!  It's been a while since I've done much updated around here, but I do have a fun layout for the Memory Nest to share.  While I really wanted to be scraping wintery things, I ended up scraping summer!  Now a few months back I made a camping page for my son, and this one is more for my daughter.  I originally was going to put journaling on one of the long rectangles, but I ended up stitching a feather.  I'll probably end up putting my journaling on a half page insert.


I had a lot of ideas for this sketch. Hopefully I'll get around to doing more of my ideas for it when I have more time to scrapbook.  

Why haven't I had time?  Well, I've been busy playing handbells.  Christmas is my crazy busy time with concerts and private events.  I have to start practicing Christmas music at the end of August, so by the time December comes, I'm fairly tired of Christmas music!


Here I am before a show with some of the tiny bells I played!  This is from a fun combined concert with three of the handbell groups in the Seattle area.  I think this photo screams scrap me! lol



I found a video!  Can you find my jamming away?  I know more videos will be coming soon.  I really want to show everyone "Breath of Heaven."  It was a beautiful piece!


At practice the day before the concert.  We were practicing "All I want for Christmas is you."


Another fun picture (I had to make it in black and white because the lighting was horrible!) from when I was playing in sub bass.  I love the big bells!


Oh and here is a video of the song where I was playing the big bells!  It's a bit of an abstract piece, but it's still fun.
