Little time for crafting...lots of time for pictures

I did a couple small crafty things yesterday and Lacie had fun with me and wanted to "make some cards" today. (Her cards involve cutting out pieces of paper and drawing/coloring on them and adding some stickers.) Javan saw scissors and wanted to join in - he loves to "scissor" a piece of paper until there is nothing but tiny bits of it all over the floor. Anyway, here are some pictures of my little crafters:

And now some photos of Westin (thanks to the new camera he will not be the third child with no pictures to prove he was ever a baby). As of Monday's doctor's appointment he is 9 pounds 4 ounces and getting chubbier by the day.

Here's a layout in progress (it will be two pages - with the story of how we got engaged on the other page) of the night Caleb and I got engaged:

The patterned paper I aquired through a paper exchange...and totally love it! I believe it is made by 7Gypsies. The solid colored papers were from the Target dollar spot. I used the Home Accents Cricut cartridge for the "LOVE", birds, and branches - all cut from DCWV cardstock and inked with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. And of course it wouldn't be complete without some Stickles!

Flower Girl

A layout of Lacie & her flower girl gigs:
(As always, you can click on the picture to make it bigger)

I believe the patterned paper is from My Little Yellow Bicycle. The solid colors are Bazzill Bling. I have some Prima flowers on there and I believe those are Heidi Swapp brads (the yellow ones...the ones with the jewels in the center are from the Target dollar spot). The celtic looking accent on the right page is felt fusion from Queen & Co. I put that picture on pop dots to give it some dimension and keep it above the felt fusion.
