Small town parade

Ok, the only problem with a digital camera, especially one I love as much as mine, is that I take WAY TOO MANY photos!!! This morning we went to our local pioneer parade and I took 121 pictures. Seriously, do I need that many? But how do I choose which ones to get rid of. I think I'll start by taking out all the politicians. Seriously, 1/2 the parade was people who were campaigning for one thing or another. But I didn't really take many pics of them. Of course there was the mayor and a couple of pageant winners. There were alpaca (yes, alpaca), and cute kids walking their goats, the local grocery store (well, the store didn't actually come, just a giant shopping cart) and lots of fire trucks. We had oodles of vintage cars, scouts, motorcycles and the library even had a presence. Everyone was throwing candy (even the alpaca people) that the kids collected in buckets they were given at the beginning of the parade. We got more candy than on Halloween! But best of all, was Sage with the cheerleaders. What a cutie! And she did a great job! I was impressed by all the girls, especially given that they only had a couple hours of practice. So I don't think I can get rid of many photos... except for maybe a couple of blurry ones. That's ok, I also got some great photos and ideas for new scrapkits. So we'll just call it research and chalk the harddrive space up to a business expense, LOL. Here are a few photos (with local info blurred out)...

Nothing too exciting, just a small town waiting for the parade to start.I told you there were alpaca...Sage cheering...Sage squinting in the sun, but still looking cute...

I know I keep busy with designing, but I don't scrap as much as I really want to when I don't have deadlines pushing me. I happened to see a great call for Designs by Sine and since I love templates and hers are fabulous, I thought it was the perfect fit for me. Hopefully she thinks I'm a fit for her, LOL. It's been a long time since I've been on anyone's CT (other than my own). Regardless, I love her templates and the 2 LOs I've created with them (click images for credits).This is a 2 page LO celebrating my baby brother graduating from Medical school!!!And lastly, one of my favorite LOs I've ever done. It just makes me grin and shows the joy and light that Adam brings to our family. Boy does he love his daddy!
