Oh, cuteness attack! I love the colour combination of this one.

Oh my gosh. 4am? how many hours of sleep do you get a night? with young kids you are certainly up early too. I guess I remember needing little sleep when I was in my 30's.... it seems so long ago though - Terri from Kirkland.

I can't sleep when my husband is away either. He is only gone like four days at a time though. I don't know how you keep going on such little sleep when he is gone so long. Whenever my husband gets home from a trip, I sleep SOOO good. I usually fall asleep while he is brushing his teeth that night. Just knowing he is in the house...you know. Speaking of that though, I pray for you and your family. God is good, all the time. Thank you for your husband's service. And thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures! You got some serious talent, what an eye...

Can you tell me about the "acyrlic" albums..I am not familiar with them and they sound like great fun!

Jackie said...

I left a comment and it never posted that I can see...what cute pictures of her taking pictures :)

Allison Davis said...

You're making me miss those late nights of scrapping!! I'll be very happy when I can get back to that!

Love the page and the journaling is so cute! :)

Don't you just love how our kids get into photography and crafts because they see us doing it! I have all boys and they love taking pics and scrapbooking too! I love it!!

luv2talk said...

love the angle of the focal pic....too cool.....and I love the "progression" strip shot....very effective...I'm glad to see you putting all of my "tips" to good use! (wink!)

LOVE it, NOEL...really love this one!

I had to laugh when I saw the 4am bit...lol. My husband frequently picks up extra shifts at night, and wont get home til 3am and more than likely he sneaks up on me in my scrap area...lol. We have a running joke that when he works late I have the bed all to myself. But I am just never motivated to go to sleep alone anymore!

I know your situation is a bit different, yet the feeling is similar I'm sure, it's easier to craft the night away knowing there isn't some big ole hunk of man waiting for you to turn out the lights...lol.

Liv said...

really--kids, huh? you think next year the car will be the best birthday present for them? LOL

i remember when i was my 2nd son's age i was extremely excited to receive a raggedy ann and andy transistor radio (do they even know what a transistor radio is today? LOL!)

great page, great photos, great memory!
