Don't know what you've got...

Well we've done all we can do to try and save my pictures and info on my desktop computer. We have no choice but to leave it in the hands of the experts now. I'm afraid It's going to cost us an arm and a leg, but all I can think about is not having any baby pictures of my second child save for those in my scrapbook albums.

The very thought that my albums might be all that's left makes me really question the quality of the inks and paper I've been using to print my photos and wonder how long they'll hold up. I've taken it for granted until now that I could just reprint the photos if need be.

Here's a layout and photo that I'm glad to have gotten off the machine. I love this picture of Parker on the beach in Jamaica. He's just so into the contents of his little shovel.
I did this page for this week's challenge at Practical Scrappers. I don't usually have any issues sneaking a few flowers into the boys pages, but I really wanted to challenge myself to use lots this week. I think the neutral colours help keep the page masculine.

Materials:
PP: Bella Blvd, American Crafts
Flowers: Prima Marketing
Stickers:EK Success
Gems: Bo Bunny
Pearls: Dollarama
