Lena's Baptism

Hi friends! How are you this beautiful Sunday morning? We have so much to be thankful for don't we? Today I feel so blessed because of our family. So I thought because of that I would share Lena's baptism pages with you. God blessed us with this beautiful little girl last June and our hearts haven't been the same since! I was so proud of Whitney on this day, a single mother making these choices for her child. As the priest was making the blessing on Angelina I looked over at Whitney, my eyes welled up with tears, and at that moment she looked at me the same way. We didn't need to say anything because we were both full of the love of the Holy Spirit and at that moment Angelina became forever a child of God! How do you scrapbook that? I wanted to make a simple page using a very pale shade of pink so that is the base of the these pictures it looks more white, but really it's pink. The brown is from SU and it's Close to Cocoa. The bottom edge of the brown paper I used the EK boarder punch called Apron Strings, and added a little bit of rhinestone bling from Prima on the side there. The faith BINGO card is by Jenny Bowlin and the little rhinestone hearts I picked up at Michaels. the way did you notice the background change? Yes...I thought it was time to "move the furniture around"! My creative little mind likes to change things up every now and then. Thanks for peekin' in! We got our AC fixed on Monday this week! Thank God because this week has been terrible for heat day the heat index hit 115! Can you believe that? Sheesh that is hot! The kids have 2 more weeks of summer camp and then school will be starting shortly after that....can you believe how fast this summer has gone? Haley will be a sophomore and Sidney will be in 7th grade! Where oh where have my little ones gone?

Have a fabulous week friends! Take care of you!

Goodnight Moon

I just love this picture! She looks just like her dolly...they both have their little arms up! So sweet! This is new paper that I picked up at the new scrapbook store on the West side...Frozen In Time. They had a lot of new things in stock...they are a smaller store but they really try to carry a variety of things. This paper was a challenge for me to use because the little worm and moon were already on the paper and it is so difficult to decide how to lay out your photo and what accents you will use on the page. I didn't want to over do it so that's why I ended up with a few buttons. The title is cut with the Alphalicious Cricut cartridge and the border on the red paper is one of my newest border punches called Apron Strings. I absolutely love this punch! I had such a hard time finding it anywhere and so I called the friendly girls at Scrapfunattic and asked them to special order it for me...what a great group of gals over there!

Well friends it is a hot and sticky one in our house today. Our AC went out last night and the house is about 90 degrees upstairs! Thank the Lord we have a basement. We've been hanging out down here all day. Certainly makes you think about all of the things that you take for granted. Hopefully we can get someone over here tomorrow to take a look and see what's going on. I am praying that they can fix it without it costing too much money.

Thanks for peekin' in friend. I hope you have a wonderful week!

100% huggable

Don't you just want to kiss those little chubby cheeks? I know I do! I remember this day...I was so excited to get these pictures. You never know with a baby how good your pictures are going to turn out because you just have to be so quick and take a million of them so you can have a good group to pick our little chubikins doesn't live here so we have to try to squeeze in picture time around all the other things that her mommy wants to do when they are visiting...but I is the low down on the page...

This page was so easy to put together! I just decided what size I wanted to print the photos out...seriously that was the hardest part! The patterned paper is from a Die Cuts With A View paper slab and the title is cut using the Alphalicious Cricut cartridge. I used the EK Success Threading Water border punch on the red cardstock piece under the larger black and white photo.

We have a slightly busy weekend but I will try to make it out here again to post some fun stuff. Thanks for peekin' in on us! Take care of you friend!

Lena's Scrapbook

Well friends it has been a busy few weeks since I have posted last. I was trying to get as much done as I could for Lena's scrapbook and I have it about half way done. Here are a few pages that I finished.

I just love these pictures. I can't believe that I took these pictures! They just turned out so great! I have always admired pictures like these. When my kids were little we didn't think about taking pictures of their hands and feet! Sheesh we missed all the good stuff! Whitney is holding Angelina's hand in the picture above. Great memories. I pulled out some old paper for this one, the patterned paper is from Daisy D's, I am so sad that they went out of business I really liked their line.

This title was done with the Cricut machine. Simply was cut out using the Jasmine cartridge and then I inked the edges for that oh so slight distressed look. Sweet was cut out using the Tear Drop cartridge. I don't know if you can see them very well but I used some acetate hearts from Heidi Swapp and added those cute little safety pins. I have had those things for so long and wasn't really sure I was ever going to use them.

These pictures were taken the same day. I just love tiny little babies. They sleep real hard so you can move their hands where ever you want and they will stay put! That is what I did here. She just snoozed away while I took an endless amount of pictures. This page I called the "too cute photo shoot". I got the idea from one of the magazines I have piled up here in the scrap room. I just love the way the title is all different shapes and blingy!

Well thanks for peekin' in. I should have a few more things posted later. I have pictures from Lena's first birthday...they are so cute...cake was EVERYWHERE!

Talk to you soon friend!
