simple scrapping

With not feeling well recently has come a desire to conserve as much energy as possible. It's amazing to me how much it takes to just do the simple, mundane things like grocery shopping, cleaning and even walking from place to place. Instead of doing all of the normal chores that I have to do (unfortunately there are still dishes and laundry and bathrooms to take care of but the painting has been put on hold, etc. )I've been trying to rest and take care of myself so that I can get feeling better.

This is apparently not working since it's about 1 in the morning and I am awake instead of sleeping, so I'll take a minute to load a couple of pages that I've done so far this week. Both are quite simple pages, ones that can be done pretty quickly and that used some pictures I've had waiting in my needs-to-be-scrapped pile for far too long.

This first page celebrates that wonderful day when our Aimee finally learned how to walk. Some of you might remember the struggle we had with her and how excited we were when, at 19 months, our baby girl walked on her own for the first time. She hasn't stopped since that day and now often runs from place to place. It's still so fun to watch her go!

Page credits: Everything is American Crafts except for the little pink Kaiser Craft pearls on the butterfly.

It is hard for me to believe that it's been almost 3 years since this picture was taken. It's a picture of Hailey from when we lived in Boise, taken at a pumpkin patch just outside of town. Isn't that a fun little place for a photo op? I can't wait to take the girls to the pumpkin patch this year and get some new pics. Everything here is Pink Paislee except for the ribbon, which I believe is American Crafts, left over from one of my old kits from My Scrapbook Nook.

Thanks for stopping by!!
