Scrapping Bekah

The last two layouts I have done have been of sweet Bekah J. She is such a fun subject, too. She's at that fun age where I feel like I need to document every little thing.

This first layout is my favorite layout right now. I captured her and her funny faces one night during dinner and I just love how the layout came together. She cracks me up!!

This next layout is of her playing peek-a-boo. Or "puh-tuh" as she calls it :) I added a hidden journal feature behind the pictures because I couldn't figure out where on the layout to write the story!!

Soon I'll upload some of our pictures from Christmas and all our festivities. Things have just been crazy for me with getting all the projects done, that I just needed a little break. But-pictures, soon, I promise!!

Last weekend...

Last weekend, Erin and I were able to have some quality time together at a friend's wedding. The wedding was absolutely gorgeous and we had a really good time. We were sad to have to leave right as the party was starting at the reception, but we had our Mommy and Daddy lives to return to.

I did make a wedding gift for the bride and groom, though. And I really didn't want to have to give it up!! It turned out so wonderful, especially since I just guessed on their wedding colors and I got them right! Woohoo!

Anyway, I decorated a plain, black photo album and made a card to match. I used lots of glitter and paint :) I had fun putting it together and was pleased with the ending result. And the best part is, the bride and groom loved it!

Sunday, I was able to have some "me" time with the girls. I was invited to a crop/Scrappy Chics party at Jacqueline's house for the afternoon. Let me tell you, her house is BEAUTIFUL!! So spacious and homey...and her and her husband built it themselves! Wow!

We all had a great time at the crop, we even had a visit from Santa Claus!! (It was actually Jacqueline's AWESOME husband.) He even brought presents!! How cool is that?
I really enjoyed my time away from it all, but it was nice to come home to my family. Even though I don't get much "me" time, I am always looking forward to when I get to return to my hubby and kids.

Oh, and if you are wondering about the "ugly" attire everyone is wearing...there was a contest for the "ugliest Christmas sweater." It was a riot seeing what everyone wore. Of course, Melinda won hands down! I would post a solo picture, BUT I don't want to embarrass her...but if you look in the group shot, she is the second one from the right ;) She did look quite cute, though!!

This Moment

This is my favorite layout right now. I have had this picture for over 4 years now, and I finally was able to get my vision onto paper! Yay! I'm really happy with how it turned out.
This picture was taken by myself, at the hospital after Gavin was born. I believe he was a day old in this picture. And now he is 4 1/2! Wow, time sure does fly!!
