A birthday and a layout

Well, my sweet baby boy turned two this past weekend.  I can't believe it, time has just flown by.  It still blows my mind that I had no idea how much I needed this sweet blessing.  I am so thankful for him, and the sleepless nights that come with him. ;)  Here are some shots from his day.

Some 2 year info on my sweet boy.
He is 20 % for weight and 41% for height.
He talks non-stop and I can usually pick out every third or fourth word.
He loves to be outside, and play hockey and fumble in the basement.
He still loves Yo Gabba Gabba and has to watch it every morning when he wakes up and after nap.
Speaking of nap, he still takes one most days for about 2 hrs.
Sleep, or lack thereof, is still a struggle.  He's up at least twice a night still.
Nurses to sleep for nap, bed, and when he wakes at night.
Is a pretty good eater, but has a serious sweet tooth.
Asks for "dondits", which is donuts, all the time.
He likes to play with cars, trains, trucks...pretty much anything with wheels.
Loves his "Au-ee" and "Ya" more than anything.

He is such a blessing, and I am so thankful for him!

How about a Fancy Pants Design layout?  You know, Christmas is on it's way, and today I have a layout that I created using the new Merry Little Christmas line, which I just love!! I also added in a wood frame, some cool chalk board die cuts, some of the cork hearts which I sprayed gold and some trim.  You can find all of those products in our Artist Edition section.

Here are some closeups.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, have a great Tuesday!

Pin It!

The gold splatter on the black background is such an interested idea for a Christmas layout! I love the layers and the way it all came together.
