It's February Already

Now how did that happen. It feels like we were just ringing in the New Year and now we will be celebrating Valentine's Day, Cheering for the 2010 Olympics here in Vancouver, and wishing my youngest dd Happy Birthday. Yikes. Why does time speed up so much as you get older?

I have three more Layouts that I created for the 2peas CT.
I love this Lo. I created it for my brother and his lovely finance Beth. The papers I used are from Sugar Pops new kit called Lovebirds. The color combo is totally up my alley and the patterns are really unique too. Another things that I really liked is they had just the perfect amount of distressing and texture for me.
Any modern day Mom could relate with this LO. Just recently my ds gave his sister his nintendo ds. Of course she was ecstatic. When she plays she totally tunes right out and I happily took a whole series of photos and my dd didn't even notice what I was doing. For this page I used Brandy Buffingtons kit Cabanarama. It was so full of papers and elements. There are endless possibilities for this kit.

This last Layout is near and dear to my heart. The photo is of my dad when he was a little boy. What I love about these old photos is that not only am I getting a chance to peek into my dad's childhood but I have memories of my own associated with this photo. When I was in my teens I was staying overnight with my Grannie. Her and I began to go through her stacks and stacks of old photos and she let me pick some to bring home. As we sorted through them she would tell me little things about the photo. In this one she ohhh and awwed about how cute my dad looked and this was one of two photos that she really adored of her son Robbie. Even the name Robbie holds special meaning. Only my grandparents are allowed to use it. And I can still remember the proud look in my Grandfathers eye when he would talk about his "Robbie". (My Grandfather passed away a couple of years ago. ) Funny how just one little photo can hold all that.

The frame is a debut release from Kenner Road. I am looking forward to seeing what else Kenner Road will be bringing us. I love vintage elements and papers just like this.

Well here's to a productive week for everyone. I hope to work on some more kits for my own shop and I also hope to create some more pages. Plus my youngest dd just switched from morning kindy to afternoon. I'm not sure how I feel about that quite yet. At least I didn't have to rush to get her out of the house and in fact I'm still sitting in my pj's and it's almost 11. (Really, I am going to get dressed as soon as I'm done here!Hehe!)
