Last week my family went to downtown Greenville and took some pictures. Miles is 11 mths now and I wanted to get some good pictures of him at the park. He is such a little wiggler. But we didn manage to get a few good shots. I cant wait to scrapbook them!

Paper Bag Album

So this is my 2nd paper bag album. I am still working on the 1st one. I made this for my mom for her 1st grandparents day. Its all in neutral colors because I had a neutral baby pack of paper. I learned that is the key to making one of these. If all the paper coordinates, it will flow and look a lot better than trying to match up scraps ( which you can still do) .

These are just normal size lunch bags, but I followed directions from watching youtube videos, I watch several so I wont call out just one. But one thing I did learn was to cut the bag to make it 4x6. It is naturally 4 inches but I cut down on the open part of the bag to make it 6. I think it will come about 7 inches. This helps in saving paper, since the paper I was using was 12x12. This left me with some scrap pieces that are perfect sizes to go back and make the pockets and folders.

I didnt make a video ( I dont have the set up or quiet time). So I just made a slide show, but you can get the idea. I dont think I got the front inside cover. Maybe once my mom goes back and puts pictures inside I will make another slide show so you can how it turns out!

Baby Dinosaur

Miles is about 10 1/2 months here. He has really got the walking thing down! He is all over the place, no stopping him now. We call him the baby dinosaur, he looks like a T Rex with those arms and that growl........SO SILLY!!

Mommy and Me


Another one of my favorites! This was made using Bo Bunny paper, love their paper lines. Some neat looking ribbon/fiber stuff....just did a little pleating to make it look a little more girlie. The flowers are prima flowers, I think I mixed and match different sets. The Cherish is a rub on. thanks Angie! I needed a little sentiment and she had the perfect thing! And yes Miles is a boy through and through, so all the pink and ruffles are for me since I cant girlie up any of his pages :)

Sweet baby Miles


This turned out to be one of the most simple Layouts, but one of my most favorites. I kept it clean and easy. Miles is about 1 month old here and was starting to lift his head a little more. I think I got an amazing shot of him.

Welcome Great Pumpkin ATC


Fall is coming! My favorite time of year. I love the weather changing and it is time for all 3 of our birthdays! Brett in September, Miles in October and then mine in November. Let the fun begin! So to celebrate my favorite time of year I signed up for a swap on fiskateers.com to do a Halloween ATC. What better than The Great Pumpkin!!!

So this ATC involved a purple background ( Bazzil ) which I sprayed with this really cool stuff called Smooch Spray! You can find it here https://www.trendyrightnow.com/shopping/default.asp?GID=45 . I won it on a challenge from Fanceypapercrafters.ning.com. I printed my Peanuts characters from google, and cut them out. The best part was the moon! I love how it turned out. First I glued down some tissue paper on top of the yellow cardstock. Then I sprayed more of the Smooch spray (silver foil) all over it…next I took my circle punch and punched them out!

So welcome great pumpkin, I look forward to carving you next month!
