Cosmo Cricket yummies!

Here are a few layouts I did this week using Cosmo Cricket from Jessica Sprague!

Since Bob's dad passed away in 1979, I've noticed there are not a lot of photos of him. So I thought this layout was important to document his time here - even though it was short lived. It's the only one of him with his three children together (that I know of).

The next one is of my little love bug... I loved this photo even though it was considered a 'bad' photo because she wasn't all in the photo. Well, I say who cares! :) If the photo is important to you, scrap it anyway!

Happy Scrapping!

Seasonal Yummies...

Here are a few pages I did recently - one for fall and Christmas! :)

I love Isla's fall coat! I wish I had one for myself! lol.  She is obsessed with leaves, so I thought it would be fun to take a little walk in the park. We didn't walk far before she spotted some crunchy leaves and plopped herself down in the grass! I used the Nutmeg Collection from Cosmo Cricket because they were the perfect colours for my photos!

I also finished one of Isla's first Christmas last year. I saw Elle's Photo Cards and thought they would make a perfect template for my layout! I can't believe how small Isla was! It's so easy to forget and hard to believe how much they grow in a year!

Mother of the Year Award...

Yes, I earned it last week when Isla decided to eat DOG FOOD! YIKES! She was cruising around the kitchen and I heard the clinking of the dog bowls. Usually they are empty and she likes to use them as shoes :)... so I didn't think much about it and went ahead with lunch prep. I guess Finnegan decided he didn't want his food this morning and left it there for Isla to discover! A few minutes later I look up and discover this...

So there you have it! Proof I deserve the mother of the year award! Layout was created using Jessica Sprague products.
