Lil Sweetie

Here is my new set of pages that I just finished using the ADORABLE new Doodlebug paper. They are just my absolute favorite when it comes to scrapbooking :)

P.S. If you are interested, search Lil Sweetie on Ebay :)

New pictures of William :)

Here are some pictures from our last visit with William. He is soo cute when he is happy! It makes me sad that at 5 years old he has such uncontrollable anger issues which may prevent us from adopting him :(

My baby girl and baby boy...

He plays so sweetly and quietly by himself for the most part. Here I snapped a picture of him playing kitchen (one of his favorite things to do). He was boiling fake eggs and using the oven mit to fan the pot. What an imagination!!

This cute little picture came after a 30 minute tantrum over not getting a real cell phone. He finally compromised and took the non-working one. Then he went out side and pretended he was calling everyone on "his phone." Too cute (once the tantrum was over)!

The Perfect Picture

I found the perfect picture for my layout. We celebrated Megan's birthday at Disney World in 2007 and she had her face painted. I printed it out in black & white and added glitter to some of the swirls. This is one of my absolute FAVORITE layouts!

June DT Layouts are Finally Done!

It has been a crazy and hectic month! I am finally finished with my class and taken/passed both of my certification tests. William has gone back to his foster home for now, and Brittany is finished with her first summer school session. So yesterday I sat down with my mom and sisters and started scrapping. I think the projects turned out really nice.

The first one is a Birthday layout that resembles some of the artwork in my favorite magazine, Somerset Studio. I am still working on their techniques, but it is so much fun roughing everything up and not worrying if I accidently get ink on the wrong piece of paper.

The second project is 2 pages from Prima's new fabric album. I just love the surfing beach theme, and the colors are amazing!

Hope you guys like them. July's projects won't be this late - LOL!

I still need to get the picture on here, but I am searching for the perfect one!

The tag on this page slips in behind the strip. I didn't have much paper left to make these two pages, so I had to piece them together. It turned out pretty cute though with the stitching, kinda like a madras blanket to go with the surfing/beach theme.
