Cheating with photos...and a challenge winner!



Spending time with grandma

Hello friends!  It does seem like I take a lot of photos of my 3 nephews and 1 niece, eh? Actually I don't. I take more pics of my creative projects! *LOL* But I do try to take some monthly photos and try to stretch them across a few layouts to kind of cover the month...[I tend to write the month and year instead of the actual date...yeah, that is sort of cheating...]


Anyway, I love my scrapbook pages to be of funny moments that would be hilarious to reminisce about years later. Or sweet moments that I want to remember forever. Like this sweet tender moment between a grandma and her grandkids.



To make the layout more "interesting", I added individual pics of my niece S who has just started walking [and evidently refused to look at the camera]...


And of littlest nephew J with that killer smile...:) [Okay, it was hard to keep the kids still for photos with grandma]

Supplies: Artful Delight May 2012 kit, Creative Imaginations stencil, Maya mists, 7 Gypsies stamp, buttons, white pen, blinged butterfly, ribbon.

Inspired by the "smile" challenge at Bird is the word.

I love the idea of putting multiple photos - especially for something like this, learning to walk! So sweet :) And kids never want to pose in a group picture, it's some sort of "kid law", lol!~

Great pic and I like that you incorporated the little ones even though they are not in the main photo. So much going on, as always you layer away and make it all look so good!
