Baby Love

Look at how tiny the kids are!  This was back from August 2002 - Gannon was less than a month old and Hannah was 2-1/2!  She was so motherly with him, like he was a living baby sweet.  Good memories, much better than all the arguing they do now with each other! :)

I love these photos of Gannon and my Mother-in-Law from 2003...She was trying to feed Gannon, but he was teasing her by putting his pacifier in his mouth!  One of my most favorite things about scrapbooking is the memories that come back when you work with photos; almost makes it seem as if it just happened.  I love the happiness they both have in their eyes, I can almost hear their giggles!

Birthday Fishes!

This month with we are playing with the Pink by Design Stamps!  I am using the Simply Everything set - it has these adorable little fish, the cutest little bird, and so many sayings...simply everything!  :)
For this card, I trimmed the White Cardstock Base to form a 4"x4" card then trimmed the blue pattern paper to 3-3/4" x 3-1/4" and adhered it to have slight top and side borders, leaving room at the bottom to stamp the sentiment.  I punched eight 1" circles and stamped the little fish in the center of each then adhered them to the blue pattern paper.  I added a button in the center and added in small dots for fish bubbles on one of the circles.

Pattern Paper: Endless Summer (Momenta)

Along for the Ride

During the fall we love going through corn mazes and on hayrides ...especially haunted ones!  This photo is from one of our Tackle Football Team outings where we took the boys through a corn maze.  We ended up lost ourselves but eventually found our way out the in!  Yes, the boys picked on us a lot :)  Anyway, this is one of my favorite photos of Gannon and one of the only ones I have of him from a hayride (need to make sure I get more this coming fall!).  This layout was done by piecing together Jillibean's Blossom Soup 6x6 Paper Pads!  We all know how much I love the little paper pads!  Seriously, you just can't beat the price and still get such a variety of papers!
