Photo Shoot!

Well, I think I've resigned myself to the fact that, until my kids are older, going to crops isn't going to happen for a while...I think I'm just going to have to have people over at my house from now on. To elaborate: Our LSS had a designer's crop tonight and I had everything settled to go; older kids going to mom's house, baby coming with me to be put to sleep there. In theory it should've worked, however, Kieran (my youngest) decided that he didn't want to go to sleep until like 9:30 (he usually sleeps around 7, or 8 at the latest. Then I finally get my stuff out to work on my layout, and my mom calls me and my oldest is crying his head off and won't go to bed because he's over tired and wants his mom! Sooooo...I pack up my stuff...put it in the van...pack up the baby and go pick up the kids from my moms! Don't get me wrong, I still had a great time just hanging out with the girls, but it did feel like a bit of a waste of packing stuff anyway...since I literally cut a strip off a piece of paper, embossed it and sanded it...then went home. LOL I guess that's to be expected when you have little ones ;)
Oh well...Aaaanyway, I did manage to get some time to create last night. These pics where taken when I was just pregnant with Caleb. We were at our family cabin and I asked my mom to take some pics of Ethan and I. I love these pics so much because it's so rare that there are any pics of me and my boys... I have tons of Chris with the boys, because I'm usually the one taking the pictures...I usually have to ask someone to take pics of me with the kids, or family pics. Well, I think I'm rambling now...It's becoming quite late, so I'll just shut up and show you my layout! lol





Here's what I used: The cardstock is bazzil basics and so is the embroidery floss, pp is crate paper, brook collection, and october afternoon, thrift shop collection. I used a close to my heart edge distresser, distress inks (vintage photo color used on outter die cut label and peeled paint color used on the green cardstock, tim holtz sander (used to distress the edges of my pics), quickutz label die cut, and alphabet stickers are Lush, by MME.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my blog ;)
