I love his smile and he always lets me take lots of pictures of him, maybe cuz he can't escape yet like his sisters do. I wanted to use this beautiful paper I found on clearence at my local michaels, he is the love of my life. I always thought i was a better mother for girls, never expected to have a boy, I knew how much work they could be, but I am so thankful God let me be the mom of this little boy. This a regular 12x12 layout, I used some embelishments but I really didnt do much to the page, I kept it very simple. I use my lovely create a critter cricut cartridge...wow say that 3 times over lol
I hope one day he likes all the pages I make for him, I have not done any journeling but I will do it soon

My husband almost had a heart attack when I told him that, he was kinda serious when he said I probably had most of the paper section from Michaels and ACMoore in our boiler room :)
I tried to organized all of my supplies by themes, I have school, wedding, vacation, beach, halloween, christmas and easter/spring. But no baby, which I think is funny because I have a 5 month old and a two year old and over 1000 pictures of my oldest daughter which I still have to put on her book. I was working and going to school when I had my first two kids so scrapbooking was never a priority, now I am using my time to create each of my kids a book that one day they would like to take and look at when they grow up. Journouling is fun, because when I look at the picture I can remember every detail and why its special, but I figure if I keep waiting I might not be able to do it....
Illyanna was such a great girl, she just kept smiling even though her little sister kept pulling her hair and crying. I think is because I let her wear my husbands grandmother's pearls. SHe felt so grown up. I use some Making memories christmas paper and some homemade flowers.
He works very much, specially since I have lost my job, and I normally stay home with the kids, all day long is mommy, mommy, mommy but the moment my husband comes home the kids forget Im even around and all they want is Daddy. WHich is a great thing for me as a need a few minutes for myself, but is hard for my husband cuz he comes home from a long day of work and he is very tired.
I made this layout becasue I was able to save up enough money to buy my Independence day cartridge shortly after the holiday, I have a few pictures of my children in their patriotic outfits that I want to put in this layout. I cut for the cricut cartridge were done at 3 1/2, the photo mats where embossed using my cuttlebug and the stars embossing folder. The white florish on the left is from 2 cuts joined together from the Home Decor cartridge. The one in the corner on the right side is the shift version of a florish from the Home Accents. the I heart USA was cuttlebug with my swiss dots embossing foldre. I distress the edges around the entire layout and used a blue color pad from colorbox.
