Oh Baby!!

I was a little bit quieter today than I usually am on Fridays in the Summer! Did you notice?? LOL! I didn't get too much scrapping for me done today but I DID get the last 9 pages of an 8x8 baby boy album finished and wrapped up nice and pretty, just in time for the baby shower TOMORROW! I actually was going to say forget it, and finish it between now and the time the baby is born next month, but as I started the Rebels layout above my phone rang! It was the Mom-to-Be calling to tell me there was a location change for the shower! WHAT? You know? So anyway, since she knows I am a scrapper and knows that I had started a baby album for her because I had to ask her what the baby's middle name was....I felt guilty and decided to stop what I was doing and finish it! I am glad I did now. It came out cute but I didn't take picturs of it. Its not much to see...very basic using DCWV Nana's Nursery line and a set of K & Company 1st year stickers. Add some ribbons, a few die cus and buttons and that was that. It was boring to me and I don't anticipate ever doing a blank album for anyone anytme soon!!

After I finished that up and wrapped that and the bouncy seat and outfit I bought her, I finished up the Little Rebels layout above. Not my best work but honestly, how the heck do you scrap photos of 3 kids aiming rifles at you! LOL! Granted the rifles were attached to a shooting gallery! The pictures are adorable, but I just couldn't come up with a fun or cute way to scrap them so this is what I did! Eh...its done.

The next one holds my record for fastest ever layout. I few squirts of two different colors of Glimmer Mist and Smooch Spritz and some splatter from some Smooch paint, a few seconds hit off the heat gun to dry it, glue the photos down, place a few stickers around the photos and add the journaling. Not even 10 minutes from start to finish! Not a speck of patterned paper either! But I like it! Its different...its not something I would do often, but it worked for both of the challenges up at Practical Scrappers. This is the sketch....see how perfect the spritz and splatters are:

The other challenge is Animation, Characters and Cartoons! The photos were taken at Disney with the first character the kids got an autograph from! And honestly, NONE of us know who he is! LOL!!!  (ETA:  Thanks to Melissa who left a comment, I now know who the character is!  John Worthington Foulfellow from Pinocchio!!  Thanks, Melissa...I better go add that to the journaling before I forget!!) Its early yet...just 9pm here on the East I may get some more scrapping in tonight! Tomorrow is pretty much a wash as I have a baby shower to attend and tomorrow night we are taking the kids to Wall Stadium to watch some "roundy-round", aka car races!

love that mickey cute..thanks for playing at practical scrappers


That is John Worthington Foulfellow from Pinocchio! Believe me...there are A LOT of people who do not know who he is! I would say that he and Gideon (the cat from Pinocchio) are two of the characters who still do meet and greets that people have no clue who they are meeting! lol

Nice pages!
