Little Boy Blue

I have been trying to catch up on scrapping for my kids lately. This is one of the layouts I added to Blue's baby book. It kind of has a grungy look so far, and I like it.

 I love these ghost letters. They're a little hard to see in the photo, but not in person. :)

I really wanted this to say "tiny little love of my life" which were the first words I spoke to him when he was born, but I couldn't find a "tiny" sticker. Still, I am happy I finally got these photos scrapped. :) Thanks for looking!  Dee2

Boo From The Crew

This is my first Halloween paper bag album of the year.  I created it using really warm autumnal colors. The papers and embellishments have a sort of vintage vibe about them. 

You can see more pictures or bid by clicking HERE. Thanks for looking! Dee2

Kindergarten Album

My daughter started kindergarten last month. It was a big event for our family. I am a stay-at-home mom so I felt keenly that I needed to record this big change. To go along with some of the pictures I've been taking I made this kindergarten mini-album to record some stats from the beginning of the year.

I used Graphic 45's ABC Primer papers. I just loved the vintage look. I think it goes nicely with the plaid from her school uniforms.

 This album is at The Crafty Scrapper right now so I didn't write in all her personal details, but I recorded her height and weight to add into the album as well as info about her teacher and friends.
This is a close-up of her missing teeth. She is so proud of them. :)

When the year is over I am going to give this album to her to put on her bookshelf. I am making a 12x12 album for myself to record the year. :)

If you need a mini school album I will be teaching this as a class at The Crafty Scrapper on September 24th at 10:30 am. :)

Happy Fall! Dee2

Goodbye Triple Digits

There has finally been a break in the miserable heat of our Texas summer. We've been in triple digits for as long as I can remember,and without rain for so long there are wildfires every day now. Last month we had four minutes of  rain. It was so out of the ordinary the kids and I ran outside to play in it, and thank God for sending it.

That's my daughter running in front of the house. She wanted to get her umbrella and rain boots, but I knew it wouldn't last through her getting dressed up.

 This is Blue running through the little stream headed for the drain at the bottom of the street. He was pretty fascinated by being able to run in the street for the first time.

This is the two of them making big splashes. It was a sweet moment, but we really need more rain. Please pray for rain for Texas!
The cooler temps are finally ushering in fall, and I couldn't be happier. It's still 90 degrees, but so much better than 110! :) Here is a sweet mini album I made with BoBunny's Forever Fall collection to show off pictures of the kids at the pumpkin patch last year.

 I know it is a bit early, but I am already eager for the leaves to turn, the days to shorten, and the nights to drag out into a cozy scene around the fireplace.

I will be teaching how to put together this album at The Crafty Scrapper on October 15th at 10am if you're interested, or you can call the store (972-923-3151) to reserve a kit. The cost is $35.
I need to break my camera out of the bag this week, and start snapping pictures of the kids so I can treasure this time of year when the next crazy summer rolls around! :)
