my baby is going to be 5!

I can hardly believe that J is going to be 5! Time just goes so fast, it seems like I just brought her home and now I have to send her off to school. I know I still have the whole summer, but still......
This is just 1 of the 200 pictures (no I'm not kidding!) I took to capture this milestone. I was trying out my new lens and much to her dismay I just couldn't quit snapping. You would have thought she was being tortured the way she was acting between shots. But I got so many great pictures, it's going to be really hard to narrow it down to a few to scrapbook. I might have to do a really nice page with my 2 or 3 favorites and then do a page with a bunch of little pictures just so I have them in the book. We'll see though, at the rate I'm going it will be 2010 before I scrap these pictures.

Speaking of that I just picked up Stacy Julian's new book today. Photo Freedom (I think that's the title). It's supposed to be about letting the chronological scrapper get out of the rut of going in order. I feel like I'm in a rut, not sure if it's because of that or not. But I thought I'd read it, it's gotten great reviews, and see what it can do for me. I've also thought about finishing up this book I'm working on (I'm so close) and then going right to the present and scrap backwards. I'll let you know what I decide when I get done with the book!

I've got a big party to get ready for, so I'll be back with some party pics soon! I also have a Halloween page to share too.
