Live in the Now -Learning From Kids

Kimberly Van Diepen, Stampin' Up!


Ahh… my kids!  They sure know how to make my day.  


Last Friday when I was having my Cray-Cray moment of feeling annoyed I think my kids were catching on.  How do I know this? They were doing everything I asked lightening fast.  I'm not sure if it was the face I was making or just the vibe I was giving off, my kids knew it.  


Brandon decided to bravely pop into my office that night and started telling me jokes that were silly and then he says, "Mom, let's do what you LoVe to do!"  I said to him, "What do you mean?"  His reply, "Get your camera and take pictures of me.  It always makes you smile!"  

Boy was he right.  Not only was it making me smile, he had me laughing in tears with his crazy antics.  He knew something was wrong and in that one little moment, my annoyance was gone.  Really living in the N-O-W. So many times I let that slip away.  Not good.  That little moment was so good for my soul.  Of course Brandon trying to act like he was Justin Beiber was pretty funny too. 


You know me… I had to catch the story and tell about it using My Digital Studio.  

I still have to make the other half of the layout to include these fun pictures….

Yes, I love this crazy kid. I learned something from him!  

Let's talk about the layout above.  It has a little trick to it and one of my GENIUS team mates, Tami Hewlett was the mastermind behind it.  I love her digital art.  

I loved how she cropped and colored the stamp brush from the Be Awesome Today kit and wanted to re-create it.  You can a quick video below on how to re-create yourself.  It's so fun and this kit is so perfect.

The title describes Brandon spot on!

    Fabulous pictures, Kimberly!   Kids are so intuitive and yes, they do teach us lots things….even if we don't want to admit it!   But you did and he worked kid magic!
