You Stinker!

I didn't think I was going to get this done on time this week.  I am not sure I am entirely happy with it.  I think it is missing something but can't quite figure out what it is.  These pictures are of my 10 month old getting into all the things he isn't supposed to.  I really love how the pictures turned out!

Basic grey- Max & Whiskers

What? What does that mean?  I had fun this week doing the button challenge for SOUS!  I used a sketch from May 2010 pagemaps and had this robot paper that I was waiting to use!  I was thinking of names for robots like R2D2 and this was the best I could come up with. 2QT (too cute) and 4WRDZ (for words).

Pebbles Lil' Buddy Collection- Bots, Bubbles
Bo Bunny- Grease Monkey Gears


The gears at the bottom of the page was a clipart image that I converted into an SVG!

Thanks for looking!

You're going places baby!

This fabulous award was passed on to me by Sandy over at  Thank you so much!  I guess I am supposed to think about where I am going to be in 10 years and pass this on to 10 other fabulous people.  Hmmm...where am I going to be in 10 years...I think things will probably be status quo (not very exciting for some I know).  Both my boys will be in school and thriving I hope.  I will probably still be working in the NICU and hopefully teaching by then!  I would love the do more travelling and let my boys experience other parts of this world! Since I am relatively new to having a blog, I don't really know 10 other bloggers so, I am passing this along to 7 other fabulous scrapbookers who are very talented and whose blogs I like to check out!  I don't really know any of these ladies so hope they don't mind that they are getting this award from a stranger but they are all very talented! In no particular order here they are:

Thanks again Sandy for the wonderful award!

Love 2 Learn!

It was another great sketch this week over at SOUS! Instead of flowers though I decided to scrap my son's first day of Pre-school.  There are lots of school related things on the page because the program has a lot of learning involved in it.  He has so much fun!  Here is the sketch!

Here is my take on it! I hate writing on my layouts because I don't like my writing but attempted it anyways on the left hand side hoping to achieve the chalked look but wished I had just cut the letters like on the right side. Oh well, it is there now! (may have to change it later!).

Papers Used:
Fancy Pants Designs- About a Girl Collection 
(Mia, Lola, and Bella)

I converted the scissors to an SVG myself!

Wild About You!

This is my take on April 30th's SOUS.  The sketch is from page maps!

I know it seems like I only scrapping my youngest...which is true but only because I am trying to keep up with his first year before I have to go back to work!  These are his 7 month pictures.  As soon as I saw the sketch I knew what I was going to do...use my new Create-A-Critter cartridge!  I love this new cart.  Thanks for looking!
