On The Bright Side...

Last year I taught a class called Stamp this Way with Mosaic Moments™. It was fun for me to teach a class that didn't require any cutting and I got to talk about one of my favorite "embellishing techniques" - stamping.

This is the layout I made with the pages we created in class:

Philadelphia Zoo wb

I've had these photos, taken on a trip to Philadelphia, for a few years now. I've been meaning to create a page with them; but, somehow they just kept getting skipped over. Maybe it's because I was disappointed with the photos.

I didn't get a lot of good shots (like I usually do at the zoo). The day was a struggle for me. I had recently been to the dentist for a routine cleaning. My mouth was really sore afterwards. I figured the new hygienist was a bit rough. I was taking pain medication - hoping it would get better. Instead I ended up spending the rest of the weekend laying in bed with a swollen mouth and severe pain.

That is what I think of when I look at these pictures.

On the bright side, Cole and Alexis behaved wonderfully for the next two days. They were stuck in a hotel room all day, instead of at the Sesame Place Theme Park. They could have made my misery even more unbearable; but, they played quietly, watched television, and they let me sleep when I could.

So... when I look at these photos, it reminds me how wonderful my children are.

I would never have guessed how miserable you were on this occasion. The layouts look great, and it just proves that you can make a few pictures turn into an interesting finished product.

What great kids! The trip may have been less than you hoped for in your pain, but you have memories that are just as important and that's kids that understood what you were going through and didn't fuss about what they couldn't do. Looks like they enjoyed what they could do!

Tami I like the layout! The stamping gives it a fun look. I think your photos look just fine. I understand the feeling of disappointed photos, but I have learned to use those kind of photos too. They lend their own uniqueness. Funny the things we remember when seeing photos.
