Scrapbooking and more scrapbooking.. hurrah!

I've kinda been in a rut this week. I've had a hard time sitting down and creating anything, particularly cards and since I've been putting off all the scrapbooking I need to do, I pulled those out! In the past 2 weeks I've done 6 pages which is GREAT for me!

*Warning- Real Life Rant!* Emotionally, I've been on a roller coaster. I guess sometimes it is harder than others to accept what is going on in your life and instead of conquering it, you feel conquered by it. But, I keep going. I think I've had quite a few obstacles in life to overcome or sometimes just work around and this is no exception. I just want Nate to be a healthy happy kid.
Plus, he's been so daddy-centric, it makes it hard for me sometimes.

Okay, enough of that, and on to the scrapbook pages!

These pics are from when Nate was having a lot of ear infections and other problems but he was still such a cute valentine! Paper is from Marcella by K. Lettering from Cricut Zooballoo cartridge.

This is from Nate's 3rd visit to a kid gym, Romp and Roll. We'll probably re-enroll him in the Winter. Paper is from Nana's Kids (DCWV), images from retired TAC SOTM Stand Tall.

This is from the first snow fall of 08. Nate was sick and not happy about being bundled up and bombarded with cold stuff! Retired SU DP, used my coluzzle. Chipboard pieces from a pack by colorbok.

This was a piece I did to journal our beginning of the journey into the Autism Spectrum. PDD is on the spectrum. Paper is perfect (puzzle piece is the universal symbol for Autism) and by American Crafts, as are the chipboard pieces. Letters by Maya Road and painted with MM paints. Journaled on Just a Note (TAC) image.

Last, but not least, is a page of Nate not noticing a caterpillar while day dreamin on his play gym! I incorporated the caterpillar into the title. Paper by Scenic Route and colorbok. Chipboard pieces by colorbok. Alphabet set by Rusty Pickle.

I did another layout of Nate's first haircut but haven't taken pics yet. I'll post that and some cards later this week. Nate's 2nd birthday is on the 20th, so we're having the party on the 19th. Should be fun... or crazy.. or both :) Have a great weekend!
