Alice and wonderland

Someday May 2012 I am going to get to take my little one to Disneyland in the mean time I keep making pages for this trip.  So that when I come home I have pages made and it will be all about throwing the pictures of the trip on the pages.  This paper is the Alice in Wonderland paper from Graphic 45 and I have to tell ya.  I love it.  I love to fussy cut.  If you have ever taken one of my classes you know that I love to make my students fussy cut.  I will admit this one was almost too much even for me!

The clock mat is made with Tim Holtz stamps and water color paper. I don't know if it is completely safe for my book but I have to be honest in 100 years I am going to be dead and my family isn't really going to care. They will be just happy I thought to save some of the stuff I have. Lets be honest when you go and look back at the stuff your parents/grandparents have saved are you glad they just saved what they saved?

Virginia park

Who here doesn't love Basic Grey, and better yet if you don't how could you not?

This layout was made from scraps.  Simple clean basic.  I need a title on it.  But it is one of those layouts that will probably always stay half finished. 

There was a cute park near where we lived in Virginia that was a former dairy in civil war times, and since has become a national park for the life of me.  I can't remember the name of the park.  BOO :(  anyhow the park has a beautiful creek that runs threw it and these big rocks that you can walk on to cross to the other side and that is what the pictures are of, I was standing on the huge bridge while they were brave crossing it. The bottom left picture is William standing in a rotten tree.  Yes gross I know there were tons of bugs and stuff in there but still he wanted to stand in it.  The mushroom is just one of my obsessions.  I love to take pictures of them when I see them.  I need to do a scrapbook of nothing but mushrooms that I have photographed.

William thinks of his cousin as his best friend they are like two peas in a pod when they get together.  This photo was taken the very last time they played together before we moved back to California.  I don't know if it is just because they are a little girl and a little boy or what but they get along so well.  This is another one of those layouts where the story is told simply by the photograph.  

I scrapbook for the history of saying my photos.  I want William to one day look back in his books and be like wow my mom loved doing this and did a great job.  

Emma and William I am so glad that you guys have each other.  I would never have guessed that you would be two peas in a pod when you were born.  But since the day Emma came home he has been next to her.  We all lived in the same house when Emma and William came home from the hospital.  Those were some of the best days of our lives.
