My Little Man is getting BIG

Lightning Bug has always been a puzzle builder - in fact, he is currently working on a new puzzle he received as a gift after his eye surgery.  The layout below is a creation he completed in 2010. I used an old puzzle with missing pieces as embellishments. I simply painted the back side of the puzzle in colors to match my layout. Then I used pieces to trace around my title and give it somewhat of a puzzling look as well.

This layout also goes back to 2010 (I am a chronological scrapper :-). What I notice in this picture is the adhesive patch Lightning Bug is wearing on his eye... the beginning of his patching was TOUGH. Being smart as a whip - Lightning Bug would "peek" around the patches I made for him, so we were forced to use the adhesive patched to break him of that habit... 3 years later, after MUCH patching, eye drops and recent SURGERY...Lightning Bug' vision has improved EXPONENTIALLY! 

While the layout is NOT about his vision, it does show the history of his vision journey and I may have to re-print this picture to tell THAT story... the story the layout shows is how Lightning Bug is maturing and wanting to model his Dad in many ways - this one how he dresses for sleep. I think it is too cold in January to sleep shirtless - but hey!

Winter is coming...

It may not feel like it now... but Winter IS coming... here are a few scrapbook layouts to get you in the Winter spirit.

One winter day in 2010, we had the opportunity to go play in the SNOW... Being a school day for most people, we were the only family there for HOURS and HOURS... building Snow People was great fun!

Both Goosie and I did mini snow people, while Hunny and Doodles made a 'real' snowman (See last picture below)

My embellishments are simple, but I am happy with the page!

Here is the "real" Snow Man Hunny built. Overall it was a great day - and I was able to enjoy it in the moment, as well as when I saved the moment in my scrapbooks!

Recent Scrapbooking...

I have been busy the past few days working on my personal scrapbooks vs creating classes... sometimes you need a break from "work" even when you LOVE your job...

This is just a sample view of a page I did recording my 20 year reunion with the Poly High School Softball team. The event was in February of 2010. I used 2 sheets of baseball paper, fussy cutting the details and using foam pop adhesive to raise it up. I then used adhesive jewels and stickles to "pink up" the layout, making it more girlish.

Not every layout I do take this much time, but every once in awhile it is worth the effort.
