This first one is a photo of Shanley posing with her Shanley chalk drawing that her cousin did of her. I used the Olivia line by Basic Grey. I really love this photo and how it shows Shanley's playful side.
As the days go by and Shanley gets older everyone keeps telling me how she looks like me more and more. I don't see it very much in the looks....but I do notice it in her attitude and the things she says. I really have to watch myself or else she will be getting kicked out of kindergarten for a potty mouth. I used my Studio Calico Roller Rink subscription kit and added in a few little details from my stash.
I am blessed to have not only 1 beautiful little girl but 2!!!! They run me ragged daily and some days I hide in the closet but I love them and can't imagine my life any other way. I used Authentiques Gathering line for this and tucked a tag with a little note for them behind the photo.
Both girls have super strong and silly little personalities. One day we decided to stick McKenzie in the laundry basket and have a photo shoot. As you can see she went a little nuts and was ready to get out. I again used my Studio Calico Roller Rink kit and added details from my stash. Including a doily from the baking section at Michael's.
Just recently I have tried my hand at 8.5''x11" layouts. I am liking working on a smaller canvas and how they look. I hadn't scrapped photos of Brian and I in ages and decided it was probably finally time. I decided to switch my scrapbook subscription over to Gossamerblue and I am in LOVE with them. This layout is using their October Main Kit.
The following 2 layouts are also from the GossamerBlue October Main Kit. The first is photos of the girls and them cruising on their quad. McKenzie gets such a kick out of Shanley running them into the lawn furniture and going fast.
These are photos of the 1st time Shanley ate an apple like a BIG GIRL. Meaning she didn't have me slice it all up for her. She did pretty well taking chunks out of it and it's her new favorite way to enjoy an apple.
Well, this post was EXTREMELY long and if you made it this far I thank you for sticking with me. Hopefully this move will be settled soon and I will be able to get my scrap stuff out and start crafting again. Until then my crafty friends!
