Been busy lately :)

Hi everyone :)

If you are here for the Paper Made Bakery blog hop...see this post please :)

Been really busy lately :)

I was commissioned to make a scrapbook for a friend's grandson photos :)  I finished it this weekend and it's HUGE!! 51 pages in all!!!

Used up a lot of my older Nikki Sivils and Echo Park papers!!! :)

 



And let's see .... 

Brookie lost her 7th baby tooth :)



And she had spirit week at school and one of the days she was to dress as an OLD person! LOL!! So I went for a 1950's Mom look, the dress, the apron, the pearls, the headband and the wooden spoon to whip something up in the kitchen :)



And some of you have noticed my new head shot on here and on Facebook ... welllllll I took it for something exciting that is coming up ... *wink* :)



And as some of you remember -- Adam went to Daytona, Florida for the NASCAR races with his Dad for his birthday ... and I snagged some pics from my ex to share with you all :)


Adam in the middle with his Dad and his Dad's girlfriend :)







Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

I have so many things to say about this post, so sorry in advance for the long comment...First, your photo is gorgeous. I saw it on your header first when i came to your page and thought what a beautiful photo that was! Second, Brookie is adorable...I do love the 50's look!! Third, the photo with Adam with the Dale Earnhardt in the background is awesome:) And my son would absolutely loved to be standing where he was with the 88 car in the background....and wow 51 pages is just crazy! They are very lucky to have you do that for them. Have a great week:)
