So Big!!!

So I had pulled out some old photos of Joseph...and enlargements at that...
Decided to scrap some of them...

This week at FROSTED DESIGNS our challenge is to use punches...
I used several different border punches on my layout and a heart punch...
He was 4.5 in this photo (5 years ago)

PineWood Derby

So this week at SKETCHES IN THYME, Tiffany created this 2 page sketch that is busier than her normal sketches...but I love the Grid and knew I wanted to use LOTS of photos.

Luckily I always have lots of photos...but I knew right away that this sketch was perfect to document Joseph's first every PINEWOOD DERBY for Cub Scouts.

Joy... in black and white with Green!

This week at FROSTED DESIGNS our challenge is to create a layout/project with the Colors BLACK, WHITE plus 1 other color...   (I chose GREEN because of my photo)

This was perfect for this picture I have of Joseph with his new bike on Xmas day...

Peek a Boo ... I Swish you

Today at SKETCHES IN THYME we have this fun sketch:

And this layout I did of Joseph when we were doing a "football photo shoot" and he was messing with me hiding behind the football.  Note that the SWISH is referring to the NIKE swish symbol....
