The Claw

Here is another layout of our vacation.  Once again I got inspiration/scraplifted one of Stacia Brandt's layouts.

I Play Loud and Dream Big

Here is another layout I did of our vacation.  Disney really wore Avery out and he fell asleep while we were getting our lunch.  Again, I got inspiration/scraplifted Stacia Brandt's layout here.  I really like her scrapbooking style.  And I love how this page turned out.

Meeting Jake

I'm working on scrapbooking our 2013 vacation.  We took our son to Disney for the first (of hopefully many) time.  For this layout I got inspiration/scraplifted from Stacia Brandt's layout here.  Her's is a lot better than mine, but I'm still happy with the way mine turned out.

Man of the Hour

Here's a layout I made of our wait to see Buzz and Woody at Disney.  There were three little girls who kept our son occupied while we waited our turn.  I originally wrote my journaling with a red gel pen against the dark background....but then decided it looked too pinkish....so I covered it up and rewrote it.

Avery's Pirate Party

My son Avery recently turned 4.  We decided to throw him a Jake and the Neverland Pirates birthday party. 

We had planned to throw it mostly outdoors and use our swing set as "Jake's Hideout".  But, it was a rainy day so the entire party got moved indoors.  That made things a little cramped, but we made it work. 

When guests arrived we had an "X marks the spot" on our front door.
 
Then the children could play in "Bucky's Ball Pit" while waiting for the rest of the guests to arrive.



 
Once everyone had arrived we had a swashbuckling lunch.






                                                                           
 
Then the children received pirate hats and a treasure map.

 
The treasure maps guided the children to different activity stations.





 
Next, it was back to Bucky to open gifts.


 
Then time for cake and icecream.
 
 
 
I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at my son's party.  Here are a few more pictures of the day.

Go Bucks.....Again

In December I posted a layout I had made for a challenge.  I wasn't too fond of the layout.  I didn't like it before I even started it.  Since it was a challenge we had to follow a sketch and certain requirements.  And I just didn't care for that particular sketch.  So, I decided to redo the layout and this is what I came up with.  I kept a couple of the things from the original but I changed it a bit as well.

Nuts About You

Here's a quick and simple layout I did recently of my son when he was younger.
