Quiet time pages (8/3)

I didn't do a page on Monday (as I was enjoying the visit with a friend) but here's the rest of the week.


Natalie by Andrew

Andrew took these pictures, I had fun making a page of them


Nighty Nighty

I decided I didn't like the nightstand/lamp/clock stickers, but it was too late once I stuck them down. Do they look stupid?

Journaling:

Andrew had gone to sleep in his own bed that night. Imagine my surprise when I found him all snuggled with his sister. These moments are the sweetest.

Spider Nat!

Just a simple page with siloutted pictures. I used Spiderman comic paper. Wink Fun!

Journaling:
After Natalie’s bath, I wrapped her in the Spiderman towel. I put the hood part over her head, lifted her up to the mirror, and said “Spider Nat!” Such the big smile came from her - she loved it! Then she ran around with the towel still on her head, and from the backside, all I could see was the image of Spiderman running away.

Time to play

Just a really simple page of Andrew and Jordan playing in the backyard last spring. I'm too sleepy to accomplish anything more complicated today. Lol

I should add a confession of sorts ... the last one is mainly just the 12x12 paper. Lol all I did was add the backyard fun and date stickers, mat the two pictures, and stick it all on. Wink

thanks for the compliments!

They are great. I sure like that you are getting so many pages done each week. I really like them all and the stickers don't look bad at all. They are cute.

Robin, not only did the paper come like that, it came in an awesome kit of about 6 pages from the dollar store. I did a "mommy's little monster" page a couple of months ago from that same set, and barely had to do much at all since the paper had what I needed. Wink

My goal is to do a page a day during the week while the kids have their quiet time. My big kids were gone this week, and while I had hopes of doing more than the page a day, it didn't happen. This is my fourth week of a page a day, and I had to go buy a new scrapbook to hold them all!!!!

Christy, oh, don't feel guilt! you work hard on the pages, it's for your family and generations to come. the cricut really makes scrapbooking easier, with titles and die cuts. I really love mine, and use it several times a week.

Great pages Gwen. You always inspire me to get scrapping - if you can do it with 3 kids then so can I!

I love all the pages - SO CUTE! I like the nightstand on the page b/c I think it balances it out with the other stickers - if it wasn't there it would feel like the page was missing something - GREAT JOB!

Those are fantastic Gwen!!
I especially love the one of Andrew and Jordan asleep together. What a great moment to capture. And I really like the night table clock stickers.
