I Love Grandma

Here's another page I recently worked on.  I'm having so much fun scrapping!  But with that being said, baby is waking and I need to get dinner started!  Ta-ta for now!

Every Single Day

I am having so much fun with this new kit from The Shabby Shoppe!  I've made a goal for myself to scrap one page a day.  Right now it's attainable, but I do have days where I don't get to it.  It's not a pressure goal, but more of a relaxed goal.  My little word for the year is "create" and I'm finding just how important that word has been for me.  I need to do creative, constructive things during my down time.  It's important!  More pages to come soon...

Cheating with templates

Ok, I admit it!  Scrapbooking your children is no easy task.  Why?  Why??!!  Because there are SOOOO many pictures to scrapbook.  I'm trying to reign myself in and pick my favorite photos.  I'm trying to use journaling prompts.  I'm trying to think about the most important moments I want to highlight in my pages.  It's not easy!  So I'm really trying to not scrapbook every series of pictures.  And what's really awesome about it is that I'm actually scrapping!!  It's been fun and it feels so good to be creative!

But sometimes I don't want to think too much about how I want a layout to look, so I've been using templates.  I call it cheating, but it's really not.  It's a handy-dandy way to get your photos on a page so you can chase after your child who is pulling on every cord imaginable in your computer room.  Whew!

Both of these pages were created using templates from Double-D Studio (Designer Digitals):

Queen of my heart

A pinner on Pinterest led me to buy a new digital scrapbooking kit.  Yes, Pinterest made me do it.  Ha!  The kit is from The Sweet Shoppe called With You by Erica Zane.  Sometimes I just need a little something new to motivate me to scrap.  I  know I'm a digital scrapbook designer, but I still feel that I'm a scrapbooker first.

Week 27::Baby Journal::

So I'm caught up on the baby journal to Week 27!  But wouldn't you know, Jeralyn is 34 weeks today!  So I won't let this "catching up" fool me!  I am right on track with journaling though.  I'm thankful for that!  Sometimes I have to jot down the date and what she did on a piece of scratch paper so I won't forget.  It's fun having the exact date of something that happened!  So here is what I did for Week 27:

She's growing so fast!  She's crawling!  She's clapping!  She says "dada" and "mama", but I'm not sure if she actually understands that I'm mama and that Quent is dada.  She probably does though.  She's learning and picking up on things; it's amazing!  I'm seriously just in awe of the things she learns and does without us even purposely teaching her.

I love being a mother!  I love being home with her; it's what I dreamed of for so long!  And every single day I still mentally pinch myself that this is for real!

I have more pages to share with you soon!

Polaroid No.1

I have a very simple set of frames for sale in the MScraps store.  They are 20% off through the weekend.  When I mean simple, I mean simple.  Ha!  They have twisty drop shadows that give them a fun "lift" off of your digital pages.  Not bad for only $2.00.

Journal Pages

Well, I thought it was time I posted some more journal pages.  I've been trying to play catch-up.  I have the journaling up to date and the pictures, but it's just the final outcome that takes awhile.  I'm having fun with the collage style that I chose almost 7 months ago.  The only problem I'm having is scrapbooking the regular pages that aren't going to be in her baby album.  Oops!  I'm slowly scrapping those pages, too.
