a wee paper smooch memory

i love that the challenge this week for wee memories is 'all things adorable' - what's better than that? :) and what could be more adorable than my little guy! well, in my opinion, nothing, but i'll let everyone else have their opinions too! :)

i made two layouts for this challenge (i'll have another post tomorrow with the other layout!), because let's face it, i do find my little mann to be quite adorable! i also used paper smooches stamps for both layouts so i could enter them in the chance to be a may guest designer for paper smooches!! :)

ok, on to the layout! it's all about my little one, and the very first pictures of my husband and i with him! we had just moved to washington state at the time, and didn't know many people, so there isn't a 'new baby' picture of the three of us, but that's ok! we made up for it later! :)

here's another angle - i am still not a master at capturing a good layout photo!

so, i have lots going on here. i bought these wooden clouds at michaels for like 50 cents a piece and i think they work so well on this page, lots of dimension and some different texture. the paper smooches stamps i used are from the set, 'giddy bugs' and 'falling for you'.

i used the stained glass/plaid heart from 'falling for you and totally glitter-fied it. then i used two different sentiments from 'giddy bugs'. i stamped one of the sentiments onto the wooden cloud, and the other one was embossed onto red patterend paper and then popped up. i added some bling (to the sun, mushroom, and sentiment) for fun!

i find it really hard sometimes to scrapbook milestones, because i want to get them just right, and make them perfect! so i put a lot of pressure on myself! which then makes it that much harder to create! it's a vicious cycle!

well, that's my layout, tomorrow will be another one...starring you know who!

enjoy! :)
