layouts :)

Oh it was HARD to get up this morning! I didn't end up getting to bed until after 2, probably more like 2.30, then Ethan was awake at 7.30. But it was worth it. Jane did manage to make it which was great! So here are the layouts

#1. I took this same belly photo every month while I was pregnant with Ethan (making up for the fact I had NO photos of me pregnant with Liam) The very first one I did a pink flower and a blue bunny, but after that we knew he was a boy, so just did the bunny. In the beginning I was so excited to see how much my belly had grown each month, buy by the end it did become such a chore. I knew I would regret it though if I didn't get every month, and I'm glad now that I made that effort. As Ethan arrived a little early, the bottom photo is my 40week photo (not showing you the belly for that one LOL) Ethy was 9 days old here, it was Valentines day - his due date. The papers and tag are Daisy D's, and the frame is Rebecca Erickson, with red/cream crackled paint.

#2. This was the first layout I did for the night and I was still cutting out letters when the pizza arrived. Thought I'd have nothing to show you today, but once that was worked out it came together easily. These are the new Crate Papers, chipchatter letters (although I had to fake a few) HS stars, and HS star rubons on the frame (not loving those :( )

#3. And finally my gorgeous little man playing on my bed during way too early one morning. Notice the flowers on my doona cover match the BG paper perfectly LOL This is all stuff that I had in my stash. I'm finally getting through those BG tags - love them, just kept saving them for a better layout (my biggest weakness!) The green/flower one is Anna Griffin I think, and the narrow strip is chatterbox. Photocorners are chatterbox too.

Had a great night again. Love going there.

This morning Ethy and I delivered some photos, still have another order to deliver, and another order to get printed. Have to go shopping. I am as far behind with my shopping as I was with the washing! I usually shop fortnightly, but haven't been for three weeks. We are going to a friends for dinner tonight - a 'casserol night' and I'm taking Apricot Chicken - mmmm Lyn, look out for this recipe in your CJ :) Anyway have to go get the ingredients.

Little man is getting cranky, must go put him down for nap. Have a great weekend girls.

These LOs are fantastic Katie. So glad you had a good time at the crop. Loving those chipchatter letters. They are adorable.

Hey Katie,

I agree with Megan, great layouts. I just purchased some chipchatter letters but in the bold colours. Just to die for, bright pink purple and blue.
Pant Pant. You will love them.

Love all your work at the moment Katie....I always admire your Photos and Journaling....and after all they are probably the most important part of scrapbooking.I do love all the papers and embellishments too but your work just seems to let your personality shine through.........well done and keep them coming girl!
