Sappy Excuses

AUGUST IS SCRAPTASTIC!!!!
Okay sooooo....I've neglected my blog this month. I know, I know how can you oooooo and ahhhhh if there's nothing new to ooooo and ahhhhh over? hee! Well, ready for my sappy excuses? MY BABY GIRL STARTED KINDERGARTEN!!!!! :(
It has hit me very hard. She is our baby and now we don't have any babies at home. They're both in school now so, we're having to deal with the fact that....WE ARE GETTING OLD!!! :(
I'm doing better now though. I've gotten quite a bit of scrapbooking done and here are two pages.
This first page is of our darling little girl! Ain't she the cuteset? (2nd only to your own little girl or little granddaughter of course hee! hee! :)) I love my cricut (oh well it's my mom's)! I tied twine around a couple of the letters and I thought that dressed them up nicely.
This next page is a large family picture of my husband's side (I had to post-it note most of them out b/c I didn't want to call all of them to get their blessings to put their mugs online! ha!) But this is one more page with me in it....ugh! It also is of my hubby and our son, Aaron. Our daughter is in her grandpa's lap so she had to be "post-it noted" out too. The bottom pic is of our son opening his favorite present of all at his g-mom's...an m&m candy cane! Oh to be so content over the little things. He is sooooo easy to please. I wonder how long that will last? hmmmmmm....
I used the "I Wish" scrap kit from SU! (retired) for this L/O.
I just noticed that I didn't crop these pics before I posted them....sorry hope you can see them clearly. There will be lots more crafty, scrappy posts for next month. Our blog group, the Crafty Critters has a challenge to see who will have the most posts next month. They have to be Crafty and they have to include a pic. I'm crossing my fingers for lots of crafty mojo in September and enough hours in the day to get it all done.
Until next time....
Blessings.....
