My Little Man

It's been soooo hot here this last week, we've been spending a lot of time at the lake! I have been downstairs in the "scrap room" every night this week, and I have only managed to produce 1 layout! I've been too busy playing with my silhouette...cutting out random images...reading the online tutorial...just learning how to use it. It's so cool, there are sooo many different things you can do with it, it just amazes me. However, I am a little bit of a techno dummy so it is taking me some time to figure it all out! But I will get there! I just need to keep playing!

This page was inspired by Kaylyn Bar, she does some amazing work, you can check out her blog at http://lifecreatingart.blogspot.com

I used the silhouette to cut out a giant label and used it as a stensil and painted over it to leave the white space in the background. I love this technique! Thanks for the idea Kaylyn! I used a new alphabet background download from the silhouette inside the label. The alphabet is QK Fiesta. I also used these cute little Raindots by Cloud 9 Design to make some little flourishes on the two corners. The PP is Fancy Pants and both the yellow, blue and orange all came from the same page, I just used both sides!

I just love that smile! What a little flirt he is too! He just got his first tooth on Sunday. He was chewing on my finger like he always does, and all of a sudden I felt this little dagger in my finger! They're so sharp when they first come in! I knew it was coming though, I've been waiting for his teeth for like 2 months! I could see them under his gums forever, but they just took their time coming in. Not like I'm complaining! Now I have to worry about him biting me when I feed him! OUCH! hehe I can't believe how fast these kids are growing up...it makes me a little sad...I guess it's time to have another one! hehe! I think my husband might have something else to say on that matter! When your kids are this cute, how can you not want to have more?!

I haven't used the Silhouette Machine, I wonder if it is easier than the Cricuit?
