something a little different...

For those who know my scrapping style I don't do grunge very often, but I thought this sweet photo of Addison at our street Halloween party needed it! Thanks to my HS distressing tool!

And this second layout documents Addison's growing confidence to get in the pool independently.I have used Cosmo cricket in both layouts, Gotta love Cosmo!

Till next time...

Addison is the type of 3 year old who regardless of the fact there is party food, games or friends to play with if there are cars, diggers or trucks around then forget all the rest he is just TOO busy playing!!!!!!

Till next time

Long time no layout post. I have been busy creating , but some layouts I cant share here yet. This first layout is Larsen on halloween, how CUTE does he look dressed up as Robin , he didnt mind the out fit at all.

This second layout is about Addison turning 3 , and what type of boy he will become this year. I have used some YUMMY Prima stitched paper, expensive but worth it, this layout is completely different from what I invisioned and from where I started but Im very happy with how it turned out, the photo was taken on birthday at his party coming out of the jumping castle.

Removed for publication

I hope to be back soon with some more to share.
