Fine and Dandy

What's a girl to do when she can't sleep?  Scrapbook, of course.  So I created some pages with a very cute line (Fine and Dandy True Blue) from My Mind's Eye...one of my very favorite companies.  Their papers and embellishments are always great and make creating fun pages and minis so easy.  And before I show you the pages...(oh the anticipation!) I am going to tell you a little secret.  My boys are now 17 and 20 years old and I have TONS of photos that I have not scrapped of them!  TONS!  And here's why...I don't scrapbook chronologically.  If I did, I would get stressed out about order and time-lines and miss the best part of scrapping for me -- which is scrapbooking whatever I'm in the mood to create on any given day.  Today I felt like toddler pages and a card. If I had to go in order I would get bored.  That's me.  
So here are the pages.  This is my 17 year old son when he was absolutely huggable.  Not that he isn't huggable now...but hugging mom no longer ranks at the top of his "to do" list.  This was his first day of preschool.  He was 2 years old and I was working full-time.   I was so afraid he would cry when I dropped him off.  Oh there were tears alright...but they were mommy's!  I just drove off to work thinking "this could not be right...his lunch box is almost bigger than he is!"  Fifteen years later and I had fun scrapping this page about my amazing, artistic, smart, not so huggable boy.


And here is one of Jordy when he was one years old at the park 
with a friend.  Love the banner stickers that come with this collection!


Not sure why I decided to do a card.  I am not usually a card person but when I looked at my left-over paper and embellishments, something just said card...who knows.  
Anyway, it had to turn out cute because the owl is so stinkin' cute!
