Daniel, when I found these two photos of you at different ages, I placed them near a current one to see how much you’ve changed and grown. :) What a cute baby and handsome kiddo. Time sure does do a “fast forward” when we look at photos this way!

One day in March, Argo was outside in the backyard. When we peeked out the window to check on him, there he was, ON the picnic table!! This was QUITE hilarious, since Argo is NOT usually a trickster at all. As he looked winsomely up at us, we took some photos. Who could resist that face? When Daddy called Argo in, off he jumped and away he loped, back into the house. SO cute and funny—but good thing he won’t be making a habit of THAT!
Photos- March 2012

The cardstock & the polka dot papers above are from CTMH. Plaid paper is from TPC Studio.

LOAD DAY 17
Had a little bit of fussy-cutting "fun" with this one! I used up some very old BasicGrey paper from the "Archaic" collection! (Oh groan-- yep-- pun intended!)
Do you like the 3-D palm tree? LOL Had to hide a big mistake on this one (oops!) so used the fussy-cutting to my advantage! The Kraft paper and inks used here are from CTMH.

LOAD DAY 18
I used an inset photo of Bry's grade 8 "Grad" photo (going from middle school, on to high school). I like how this turned out! One photo was from Sept 2009, the other, from Spring 2010. All papers and cardstock from CTMH.
|"Bryan Alexander: Grade VII"|
LOAD DAY 19
That was a tough photo to scrap as they did something weird with the background when they developed the photo package... (very bright...) anyway, I know it's better to have the photo than NOT have it, so I scrapped it anyway. The photo is so bright though, it washed out ALL the papers I tried. so I went with papers that had a slightly distressed look. As I said- tough one! These are all CTMH papers, pearls & inks, so happy I had them!

LOAD DAY 20
Adored using Crate Paper's older "Brook" collection on this page. Ahhhh.... this photo makes me smile. That's our youngest. :)
|"Cherished Son, Daniel- Grade 3"|
LOAD DAY 21
There was a great deal of peachy-tone to the photo background on Daniel's photo. I chose to draw on this in my paper choices. These are all CTMH cardstock, patterned paper and inks. Tags and tickets were cut from some CTMH papers, too. Ribbon from my stash... button is from my daughter- she gave me some BasicGrey buttons for Christmas!
As you can see, I am a very linear person. Even my clustering looks "linear!" LOL
There, all done posting the last of the 21 LOAD layouts! Hope you enjoyed! On to newer things in the next post. Have a great day- do something creative!!
