A Scrapbook Page!

Thanks to my stamping pal, Krisitin Moore, I got a layout done this weekend with the intent to do a few more this week. It felt so good to dive back in and do a page for me. Not for a DT obligation, not for a challenge, simply just to document a family memory.
Kristin directed me to a new-to-us site, called Let's Scrap. It's an online community for the love of scrapbooking (you can make cards, too ;) ).  The sketches are awesome!!! and sketches for me....beautiful layouts making room for lots of photos. Check it out!
 I  did a 2-page spread of Ry's 5th birthday (yeah, he turns 8 this year....just a wee bit behind.....but I'm ok with that).
Some fun papers and some  MFT Stamps and Die-namics to help pull this page together.
Here's the sketch:

I'm hoping to have more layouts to share, real soon.  Oh, and if you want to see what Kristin did, you can find her  layout here. It's pretty amazing.  Tell her so!

Since I'm back here....I also thought I'd share what this little sweet boy made for me yesterday.

Nicholas got in on the action, too....he does everything Ryan does. Love that they snagged up some leftover die-namic pieces and put them to work.
The letter made me a bit's these unrequested, spontaneous moments that make the tough job of parenting all worth it!

Thanks for stopping by!
