Oh Little Boy of Mine

I have had the paper and some of the embellishments from the TWIG line from LYB for a while now and I have been waiting for the perfect moment to use it all (and a few extras thrown in!)  Yesterday, as I was deciding what to do around the house before work I decided that I would put the housework aside and make a page.  It took me about an hour and half to get it done, mostly because of all of the stitching I did on the page (hard to see in the picture) and die-cutting the letters.  It was a super easy page to make and I am glad I got it done so quickly!  The picture is of Colton at 7 months.  He was chubby and didn't move much so it was easy to get this picture!

10 on 10

Yesterday I saw that Ashley over at Under the Sycamore was participating in the 10 on 10 photo challenge started by A Bit of Sunshine's Ten on Ten project.  I decided to join in on the fun.  I now plan on doing this every month, it was so much fun!!

10 am - Eli, Jackson and Colton racing their cars and monster trucks around the table, a regular occurrence at this time of day!  Notice CTV chugging his "choka milk"
11 am - Clementines are my favorite right now, and the stickers on bananas have been pretty funny lately!
12 pm - Nappy time
1 pm - Scrappy time!  I always create a huge mess!

2 pm - CTV and Jack are up from their nap.  CTV is reading his most favorite book ever, "Go Dog Go" and Jack is reading all about sizes.  Everything is HUGE!!!!
4 pm - (I forgot to take a pic at 3 pm) I set my Starbucks down on my dresser on my way to take a shower(thank you Luke for bringing me SBUX on your way home, love you!) and noticed the perfect picture!!  I never did get in the shower after that....I am so easily distracted!
5 pm - Dillon coloring a picture to send to his cousin Xavier.  I love looking at his drawings!
6 pm - (closer to 7!) Dinner time!!  
7 pm - The page I finished earlier in the day (I started it two weeks ago!!)

This is a new page that I made using one of my most favorite lines EVER, My Minds Eye "Stella and Ruby"!!!!

I have had these pictures of Colton and my Dad since this past Halloween, just waiting to be scrapped.    I bought some new border punches, "Leave it to Weaver" by Fiskars and "Circles Large Edge Puncher" by EK Success and went from there.    I have been loving all the banners that I see on everything and created my own using a circle punch.

I was having a hard time coming up with a title and my new "Inspiration Station" book does not have a Yoda section so I did some searching online and found a Yoda translator!!!  I just hope everyone uses their Yoda voice when they read the title of the page!

My first post....and a few pages!

I have been wanting to post pictures, scrapbook pages and pics for a while now.  Well, here goes!

I made these pages about a month ago with the new My Mind's Eye "Fine and Dandy" collection.  (These pictures were taken from my phone, I will post better pictures once I get them back from work.) This collection matches everything in Colton's room and breaks away from the "normal" boy scheme so of course I loved it.

I wanted to do the pages quickly so I searched for some ideas on Two Peas.  I found these:
"Boy Thing" by KimA and "On Cloud 9" by Scrappersu.  Thank you ladies for the wonderful layouts and allowing me to "scraplift", yet make them my own.  For work we needed samples using the new McGill flower punches so I incorporated some flowers onto the pages also.  I think it is usually hard for most scrapbookers to find a place for flowers on their boys pages.  Being a Mom of all boys, well, I have to add something girly or feminine any chance I get to make the page "my own" and not just about my adorable subjects, but to reflect my own personal taste too!
