I love pictures of Aaron :)

I feel like I actually got something accomplished "craft-wise" today! What a great feeling! I ended up completing these 3 scrapbook pages plus a few cards that I'm saving to show you another day. So its been a pretty great day for me! (Plus I got a really long, wonderful nap in, which is probably the only reason I had energy to scrap!)

I took these pictures of Aaron tonight while we were having dinner just so I could do a page like this! We had spaghetti, which he is not a fan of, so I got some happy pictures and a few mad pictures! I cut all of the pictures down to 3.5 inches square. All of the paper, patterned and solid, is American Crafts that I bought last summer at CKU. The letters are Making Memories Heidi rub-ons in small and large. I love this page! It may go in a frame for a little while before it goes in his album. I just love all of his different, perfect little faces-even the mad ones!
This is one of my favorite pictures EVER, so I didn't want to put much on the page that would distract from the picture. We went to my grandparents for a cookout on Memorial Day, and this is Aaron and my Granddaddy grilling together! (I wish you could see more of Aaron's grill-it is so cute! Has all kinds of foods and utensils, plus it lights up and makes noise like a real grill! One of my favorite yard sale finds so far this year!) Anyway, the papers are both Bo Bunny, and I cut "Lean Mean Grillin' Machines" with my new Opposites Attract Cricut cart!

Here is a page that's been setting at my table half-done for a month or two. It needed something but I could never figure out what! I think the paper is American Crafts, but I'm not sure. The ribbon is something I bought and never used for Aaron, and I pop-dotted Alex's name on top of it. The letters are All my Memories rub-ons. I added a "Little Boy Blue" Jolees tee at the top. Now I finally have 1 page done in Alex's album! Can't wait to add more! I really need to take some pregnant pictures, which is something I failed to do with Aaron. I better get to it because Alex will be here before I know it!
Well, that's all for now. Its about 9pm which means its way past my bed time! Hope you're all having a great weekend! It stormed here today so we stayed indoors all day, but tomorrow my in-laws are opening their pool and having a cookout, so I'm hoping to break out of the house to go visit and get some pics of Aaron in the pool! Thanks for stopping by!
