Baby Layouts and 2 cards

These are the layouts I got done last week....just now getting to post them. LOL, I had company here everyday.

"new arrival"

photo corners are Jasmine, title is New arrivals. This layout was of his birth announcement we did in the newspaper.

"remember"

meeting big brother

and a close-up of the journaling

and a 2-page layout of the hospital pics we took....

and the insides of each hidden photos/journaling. I haven't journaled yet, but took pics anyways.

left side

right side

I don't know if you could tell from the pics but each side has two pics that have pictures and journaling underneath? The titles are all Don Juan.

And a couple thank you cards I made for the two ladies that took pics of Cohen and Kayson the other day. I didn't take this pic outside because I was in a hurry to get them to the ladies...sorry about the quality.

the camera is from Going Places

WOW! Those are awesome!!! I love how you used the buttons on the 2nd lo! I almost got that paper yesterday but now after seeing your lo I am going back. The strips of paper on the 2nd one just make the page! I love the rest also. Your hospital pics look like you are going to say MY NAME IS CHARYS, MRS. TEXAS. You just look like you should be in a pagent Smile

Wow, I really love the colors of the first one, the cut up journalling of the second one and the flip photos on the third. That is quite amazing work.

I was wondering, and please feel free to ignore me or tell me to butt out, I really won't be offended... is there a reason you named Cohen the way you did, with Cohen being his middle name, even though it's what you call him?

Of course not!! LOL. Are you ready for the long baby naming story?? Get a bowl of popcorn ready. Wink

Scott and I could never ever settle on a boy's name. Infact with Kayson, I just named him...both middle and first and told Scott that if we ever had a second, he'd get to name him/her. (thinking I'd never have another child I thought I was "safe") So when I found out we were having a boy, I was like "oh no, I told Scott he could name the second." And of course he hadn't forgotten this. But he was sweet to atleast suggest names to me. I didn't like any of his, he didn't like any of my suggestions. Finally my sister calls one day and says "hey what about the name Cohen" and out of the blue DH says he likes it! At first I was thinking he was just being nice to her, but he's not generally like that...he tells you what he feels. Then I was offended because here I suggested a hundred different names and he doesn't like one and Sarah says ONE name and he likes it!! hahaha But the good thing was that I really loved the name Cohen!! So it stuck and then the "middle name dilema".......I loved Cohen James...Scott didn't....of course. (((rolls eyes))) So again, the name war began. Then I suggested Cohen Christopher (Scott's first name is actually Christopher, but he's always gone by Scott. That is why Kayson's middle name is Scott....so he would have a piece of his daddy's name.) he didn't like....of course. After giving him a couple months to come up with a better middle name I told him that I was just going to name him that and atleast he got to come up with the first name. Wink LOL I wanted both boys to have a piece of their daddy's name, so jealousy wouldn't pop up later on. Well, Christopher Cohen just sounded better to us than Cohen Christopher. I took a poll at work and everyone agreed.
In Scott's defense...he actually DOES like the name now. Wink I'm not THAT mean. LOL!!!!!

I guess to answer your question....he was given teh name Christopher because that is his daddy's first name, but we liked Cohen and wanted to call him that.

My sister who is nearly 15 weeks pregnant has been having the same prob naming theirs and the same dilemna about the name order sounding better a certain way...I used Cohen's name order as an example of how it can totally work. lol And I agree, Christopher Cohen flows much better but I like Cohen as the used name too Biggrin Not that it matters. LOL!

Now, to your pages, AMAZING! Especially the one with all the hidden journaling and photos! Unbelievably awesome Biggrin I really love all your work here

I can't see them all on my dial-up at work but a couple loaded. the first one is so precious. I love his picture in the paper and the other pictures for that page. Sweet! Your stitching on the 2nd page looks great and I love that "remember" paper you used.

these are AMAZING!!! I'm glad that your funk was short-lived. Smile Cause really, all three layouts are AMAZING. The hospital ones with the hidden photos/journaling rocks!!! Submit it, I think it should be published for sure!

and totally dig the cards. Smile

love the story about his name, and I agree that it sounds best the way it is. and I think it's so cool that both boys have their dad's name.
