These are the best of pictures that Dallas took. No edits and no filters.
I am always really honored when people ask me to take pictures of them. It's not something that I would typically charge money for, it's more of a hobby, but I love that family and friends trust me with their special moments. These pictures are of my cousin's daughter and her soon to be husband. They will be getting married in October and asked me to take engagement photos of the two of them. We went to Prairie Creek Park in Richardson, which has become my new favorite place to shoot. There are so many lovely options at the park, and I feel like it is hard to take bad pictures there. I had trouble narrowing down these pictures to just my few favorites. Congratulations to Heather and Mike, I can not wait to celebrate your big day with you. Hope you love these as much as I do.
3 The good thing about having so much free time lately is that I have been able to spend that time doing things that I love to do. I have been doing a lot of family history research and have spent a lot of time in my craft room; catching up on my scrapbooking and restocking my stash of handmade cards.
I completed this page to put in my 2014 scrapbook album, and the purpose of the page is to document the completion of my son's 1st grade year. At the time we lived in Denton, Texas. He was so small and super cute. I find it hard to believe that now he is 10 and about to be finished with the 4th grade.
I have always loved stars and they tend to be a reoccurring theme in all my scrapbooks. On this layout, I wanted the focus to be on the pictures of my son, so I picked a more neutral, tan and cream base with white and navy blue accents to match the background in the pictures. I love how it turned out!

I had so many pictures of my son playing soccer this season, and I loved all of them. So, in an attempt to use as many pictures as possible, I made my own background paper using the pictures. I admit that it makes the layout a bit busy, but that is kind of what a soccer game is like; always something going on and something to look at.
I picked my favorite 3 pictures and double matted them, so help them to stand out from the background a bit. Then I cut down the rest of the images and attached them in a way that showed the best pictures around the outside edges of the paper. Remember when if you try this that the pictures in the center of the page will most likely be covered up. I finished the page up with a handwritten journaling card and a 3D embellishment that I purchased at Michaels.
This might be one of my favorite pages in my 2017 scrapbook album. (Don't judge, I'm behind on my scrapbooking, lol).

I love Christmas, at least I love decorating my home for Christmas. Last year when everything went on sale after the holidays, I purchased a new green tree (we usually have a white one). I decorated it with blue, pink, purple, green, and silver ornaments and silver beads and a big silver bow and star at the top. I really love how it turned out and look forward to coming home to turn the lights on everyday. Makes me happy!
My name is JoNeita Kelly and I have been crafting for at least the last 20 years. I live in Forney, Texas with my son, Dallas. I am a High School teacher and Cheerleading Coach. I love to craft and to continue to improve my photography and editing skills whenever I have free time. What I love most is telling our story using pictures, it is the most important gift I can leave my family.
