Gotta Love Scrapping Kids

     I know I really love it when I am scrapping the little ones.  My mind wanders back to when my daughter was small and how precious she was.. not that she isn't precious now but she doesn't live with me now and she she isn't wandering around now saying those cute little things or doing those little things that always made me laugh.

     I have so many photos of these children to scrap that I am going to be remembering my daughter for a long time to come and therefore I am going to be enjoying my scrapping for a long time.

This first layout of Skylar with his two younger Siblings, Leah and Brayden is just too sweet. It makes me wonder if having only the one child was a wise choice.  Yeah, it was, I would never have been able to handle more than one.. heck I couldn't even handle just the one.

I had some fun with this one but alas I didn't keep very good track of what I was using... Me Bad!!What I do know, I used some Pink Paisley, some Echo Park, a little Basic Grey,and I also used a TCW stencil with Liquitex natural sand for texture. I also used a die to cut my banner.

For this next one I couldn't help think how Skylar looked so darn cute all decked out in a Fireman's outfit and how Janet never thought of being anything but a teacher. Even her second year of College she was still studying to be a teacher. Before the third year though we convinced her that that was not her niche. From the time she was 9 years old, she was into computers. She just had a thing with them, it was like she was born to them. Nothing about them escaped her tiny little mind. At nine years old she told a salesman at a Sear's store that he was going to have a "syntax error", he told her he knew what he was doing, yet he DID have a syntax error. She is now 40 years old and has never had to look for a job, it has always been headhunters looking for her. Yeah, she is very comfortable in her computer "niche".

I give you "To the Rescue".
For this layout I used Basic Grey's Serenade papers. The alphas are also from the same line. I used Momenta's Die Cuts. To cut the large background I used my Cricut Expression with the Storybook cartridge. I used a Martha Stewart edge punch for the little border. I also used a TCW's stencil with Liquidtex molding paste for some extra texture. The faux stitching was done with a Pitt Artist Black pen. To Attach the alphas I used Tombow glue.
