Duplicate Monkeys!

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015


I don’t do it often, but for the boys’ baby books, I had a few layouts to duplicate. One for their baby book and one for me to keep. I made this Monkey layout for the CREATE magazine but forgot I wanted two copies:



I couldn’t find another sheet of the sock monkey paper but really wanted to keep the same theme so I made my own sock monkey paper. I used a Recollections paper for the background and a Silhouette cut (supposed to be a juggling sock monkey) for the big guy.

This layout was created for the birthday theme challenge for CREATE. I took photos of Calvin at his 1 1/4, 1 1/2, 1 3/4, and 2 year “birthdays” for comparison.  They really turn from babies into little kids during the second year.

Over the Moon

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

Some recent family photos.  Tobin loves the moon and he couldn’t see it from his carseat this particular evening on our drive home form dinner.  So we went for a short walk when we got home to go “find” it.  I thought it was a nice opportunity (and great lighting) to get some photos.  😉
