My Little Sunshine

Yesterday I went to a 14 hour crop with my friends Dawn and Linda at the Little Scrapbox and I started to make more head way on my son Connor's scrapbook. 14 hours may sound like a lot, but as I was trying to tell my DH, 14 hours goes by like a blink of an eye. By the time you get there, drag in all of your scrappin stuff, set up, say hello to your friends, shop around to check out whats new, get scrappin, eat, chat a little with your friends, shop for more paper, eat, hit the bathroom a few times through out the day, did I mention eat, get something to drink, by this time its already after 8:00pm and your totally slap happy and strung out on Pepsi and M&M's, God only know how your pages are going to look the next day!
The scrapbook layout up top were my favorite from the day, because I made the sunshine at the top of the pages to look like the sun on the light up toy Connor is laying under in the pictures. I still need to journal on these pages and need to write how his grandma bought this toy for him and when I'd lay him down on his blanket on the floor and place this toy above him and turn it on, how his face just lit up and he would smile, coo and giggle at the sunshine as it lit up and swayed back and forth and would sing to him "you are my sunshine, my only sunshine", it was so sweet. Its hard to believe how much hes grown and is changing, these days a box will entertain him for at least an hour.


Thanks for stopping by!
