Crunch Time

 These pics of my lil' Nathan were snapped up one afternoon while the big boys were at school (last year).  I had been watching him all morning, thinking about how cute I thought he was and how much I was going to miss having him with me all day went he started kindergarten.  I was in love with his actions, sayings, how he dressed himself (including his multiple costume changes) and most of all...how he liked to 'snoogle' his mama.  I nearly peed myself when I went to take these photos and his big grin revealed a set of vampire teeth!  Never a dull moment, I tell ya! :)
 This paper line is Studio Calico's Elementary collection.  I scored a heaping pile of it last month during the last call sale they enticed me with.  I simply couldn't resist! :)
 Above, Jenni Bowlin chipboard star and Studio Calico 'C'. . .you know me and stars!
 I stamped an alphabe along the left side of the page.  When I got to the 'n' I changed the ink color, added stars and the number '4' for 'N'athan's age.
 I'm loving chomping into a section of paper...you know just randomly finding a good spot..and doing it! :)  {Love that lil clock sticker too...reminds me of the one our dog Charlie chewed up} :)
 This paper is so darn cute..I added a few {more} stars to it...
 More layers, stitching and Cosmo Cricket tiny text stickers {{{I LOVE THESE...can't wait to use the Chistmas ones I've been hoarding!!}}
I am so glad that I finally scrapped this day. Our days together were always so special.  Our time.  I was right to be so sad about the changes starting school would bring.  It's a big bummer not having my little buddy here with me.  But...I know it's for the best.

love, lisa

Hi Lisa! Thanks for following my blog! I love your's, too! I used to do a lot of scrapbooking and made all my own greeting cards. I've gotten out of it in the past couple years, but I'm definitely going to be following you for some inspiration!

God bless!
