Tea for two





Hello friends, family, and scrappers. I can't believe, March has passed us by. With that my 7 year anniversary also passed. It's so hard to believe, I've been married for 7 years now. Wow.
April is an important month in our family. Its Blake's birthday. I'm kinda stressed about it. I don't want my little baby to turn 3. Wow three years old.... where did the time go? Then I look on the other hand and see a cute, smart, funny little boy. He knows 90% of his letters and sounds. He knows his colors and shapes including hexagons, ovals, and eclipse. One of his favorite things right now is to learn what color eyes people have. It's cute.



Scrapbook Challenges had an Alice in Wonderland themed event going on this past weekend. One of the prompts was to decorate a tea cup. I decided to add mine to a LO and put B inside it. Now I feel like the page is empty and missing some key elements. I may end up changing it up a little.






This is just a random LO of Blake using a otherwise odd photo. It was taken on a hay ride last year at the pumpkin farm.









Last I am going to make an effort to follow along in Julie's Advice and take a photo with my boys every month. If you look close, you can see my little baby bump growing. Also see the cutest little squint eye grin my boy is making.... I love it.








Okay now one to see those pretty green eyes, Blake. Oh and Please disregard my pale, puffy self. I'm not one of those women who "glow" during pregnancy.







Oh and we can't forget to get a photo with Dad too. It took some convincing, but he did it. (Josh doesn't like alot of photos now after his injury and weight gain. Mama's don't let your babies grow up and join the army..... haha actually Its not the army's fault Josh got injured. It was human mistake. )







And Last I will leave you with a few snapshots of B playing at the park. All the swings were filled so he had to swing on the baby swings, but he didnt mind.

time to update

So its time for the reveal of sketch 190 over at Scrapbook Challenges. Pamela created a lovely design with a basic concept of photos, journaling and a classic heart. Play along if you like and link for a chance to win the sponsor prize. Everyone loves free supplies right? Moving along...







Here is what I came up with, and I really love this page. I absolutely love this photo of Blake. Its definately on of my all time favorites. This page uses very little product. October Afternoon pattern paper that Ive hoarded long enough (hehe) and a small piece (brown) from America crafts Christmas line.




Back in October, we went to the little hometown fair. It was Blake's first time and he LOVED it. The kiddie roller coaster was his favorite ride. Technically he wasn't even tall enough to ride it but the attendant let him on and boy was I nervous. His arms were stretch all the way out to hold the handle. He went on the ride this ride over and over again. In the photo he wanted to ride in the front, which is something I always hated to do, so the attendant put him in with another child (i blacked him out for privacy) and he had a blast. I'm looking forward to taking him back this year.






So now on to the baby news. I am now 22 weeks along. I have about 125 days to go. Maybe I will remember to take a belly picture sometimes this week. Actually, I can't believe I haven't done that already, as I plan this to be the last baby. If you made it this far.... I think I will let you guys know this little guys name. We plan to name him Brycen/ Bryson. I'm still trying to decide which spelling I like better, but I'm leaning toward Brycen with the C. Then I can call him Bryce if I choose, or he can go by that later in life, if he prefers. His middle name would be Alexander or Nathaniel. So do you love it, hate it, just ok, Please anything but that name ? Throw it at me, I don't want my kid to be stuck with a crappy name.... Its important you know.


I hope everyone has a lovely week ahead and gets some major sunshine to enjoy with our new daylight hours.
~Hugs~

Happy Monday Sketch 189



It's Monday, well its official Tuesday night I guess, but today was another great sketch reveal over at Scrapbook Challenges. I really liked this sketch bc it reminded me of those new Jenni Bowlin Banner flags. They are so cute and easy to work with. Put them on your shopping list, they are awesome. Here is the sketch and my page. I finally used the Tinkering Ink butterfly that I've been saving for some time now.








Love this Scooters Vacation line from Imaginisce. Its so cute and filled with reds, yellows, green apple green and this lovely teal blue color. I want to get more now, as I only order this one single little sheet.






I'm finally getting around to using this Christmas line from American Crafts. It reminds me of chocolate bars and m&m's. It's March and I have one holiday photo scrapped. Who knows, by November I may be finished with them.






How was the weather where you are. Today, was over first day of nice weather all year. By lunch time we had 70 degree summer sunshine and by 5 pm it was 75. I loved it. I know I will be complaining at the heat come July and I'm 9 months preggo but right now, its a great change from all the rain, wind and snow. Sadly its suppose to rain the rest of the week. Hope not!
