...its not exactly what I had in mind for these pictures. I was going to incorporate what the boys' clothes say, but it works anyway :) The shadows on the page is from the screen door, sorry!

Pages from the weekend!

I had a crop on Friday night at my mom's and then on Saturday night I had a design team meeting/crop, so I did a few pages :)

I had a lot of help with Tina from this one (thanks for letting me bug you!)
Baby Love-play group line up. The big picture has the pole editted out of it as well as lots of stitching. I also made an old school pinwheel to match the paper at the bottom!

Bear Hug

Cow Boy Up-with some crackle paint that reminds me of diamond glaze....

Long Winded.

I am REALLY hoping the bug face dries clear ;)

Ahh, moments with my babies

This page was a bit of a challenge because of how the paper was made. I accented it with colored glitter to make the moon and rocket pop out a bit.

Off topic....
I was at a scrapbook store that is closing down *ahem, recollections* and I can not believe STILL what happened today. So we went, it was about 4 pm. Granted, Jaden didn't have his nap yet, but Jackson did. We were trying to leave but was waiting for my mom to check out, so my sister and I were loading up the boys back into the stroller. Jaden started crying and Jackson started crying....both for different reasons. I was already hot (they have all the merchandise left packed into like 6 mini aisles) and now stressed because they are causing a scene. I calmed them both down and walked outside so they could cool off (it was million degrees in there, which wasn't helped any). Then my mom comes out, obviously very irritated, and tells me how one of the workers inside was talking behind my back, telling everyone how I need to get those kids home to bed. My mom checked her, but still. That lady didn't know the situation. How unfair for people to automatically assume they know what is going on with your children.They are children, give them and the mother a break. Thanks for making me feel like a horrible mom. If they weren't closing down, I would have gone back in and returned what I bought because I wouldn't want to support a business like that.....but alas, all sales were final.That'll teach me to not stick with DM.
Off my soap box now.

Loving felt and embroidery floss!

Rising Star- I am proud of this page because I finally started using scraps from other pages more. I just used this paper on Jackson's 8 month page. Yay! And I had to make the white brad because I didn't have any.

2008 Goals in Scrapbooking

I just wanted to jot down some of my goals for scrapbooking this year :)

Each month I want to scrapbook a page about what I loved from that the end of the year, it will have my own personal year together like a mini journal. I figure thats the best way to do an album about me!

Each week, I want to do at least two pages. One of Jaden and one of Jackson and then whatever else I feel like working on.

I also want to make sure I do other projects as well. Keeps me on my toes a bit :) Pin It

Its a bit plain for me, but I did some handstitching on it with embroidery floss and wanted that to stand out.

I have been wanting to scraplift this page from a magazine I got when Jaden was a baby. Its not the most exciting page, but I did like the concept :) And each letter is cut out for the journaling, yikes! It doesn't show as well here as it does in person, but I love how crisp it all came out. I was worried that blue would be too light for the lettering but it worked. Poor kid's face was so scratched up though!
