My boys

Before I go on with all the layouts/cards I completed during the Willow Traders Anniversary Celebration, I wanted to post a few layouts I created in February. These were "just for fun" layouts that I made with scraps while I was purging my room. I've totally been on-- a use up all my scraps and embellie package kick lately. It's fun to mix and match things that does not seem to go together at all, but when you put it on a's a free for all! haha!

Here is my first born. It's so hard to get a good photo of him lately. He's usually in his room doing his homework--hey, that will be a good photo to take today--or making goofy faces, or just plain unwilling to take photos now. I was happy to get this one back in February. I love this kid. There are times he makes me pull out my hair, but he's a good kid! Check out the old school "boy" photo tab thing..from All My Memories back in the day! I'm also trying out a new size for the kids. Seems to make it easier to handle. Maybe they'll actually look through their albums! haha!

Now talk about using up some stash!! Alpha overload on this layout! The background paper with all the quote bubbles was from the Color Me Miki Jan kit. I thought it would be perfect to use for Joey now that he is saying lots of words. We were pretty nervous in the beginning but once he turned 2, he went from 2 words to 10 almost in 1 week!! Right now some words are still difficult to understand, but he is stringing 2-4 words now...woohoo! You get down with your bad self, Joey! Oh...BTW, if you are wondering what "Bao" is...LOL...that is what he calls himself! I have no idea why, maybe because sometimes I say Joey Boy?? It's totally funny though!

And lastly, another one of Bao! haha. Pictures taken the same day as the above photo. That boy is our tornado causing chaos in less than 5 minutes flat! This layout was done for a challenge at Willow Traders...using 3 goodies 3 times. 3 patterned papers, 3 ribbons, 3 brads, plus a mess of other goodies!

Thanks for looking! Hope you have a great week!
