Well I finally got a chance to get away with one of my sisters and scrapbook! I can't say I was too productive that day but it was nice to get away and spend time with her. Unfortunately our oldest sister Kim was sick and couldn't attend. I think I get more acomplished when she is around because she can put together pages faster than anyone I know. She keeps me moving... My sister Dawn and I take our time and think about each picture, cut, embelishment, and placement of each item. However, I have to admit I have the least done out of the 3 of us. I bought a CM album from my siter back in 2002 and didn't take it out of the box until last year! I still can't figure out how to work the straps!

Anyway here is the first page for my son's album... Thats still is strange for me to say... SON! I have a SON! WOW!! Anyway.... I also made my first page of my hubby and him. I love looking at these pictures of them together. I love seeing so much emotion in his face. My husband is a great man, awesome father, and we are very lucky to have him. I did leave off my journaling box which will be off center in the upper right corner of his page. To me this is personal and I prefer not to display it. However I will take a moment to explain the pics. The pic of my son on a single page is the first picture that was take of him in NICU. I was not away to see him at that time:( The picture of my husband holding him is my favorite. It is difficlt to get a good pic of my hubby smiling and with how tramatic our birth was this picture means the world to me. On the other page he is leaning over and talking to him softly. Lastly the picture of my hubby looking up... he is looking at the heart monitor on our son. Our daughter had a lot of heart problems and this is him chekcing to make sure it looks regular.

I used the book imagine by Jeanette R. Lynton for inspiration. Along with papers from Prima Marketing (baby boy, little one, moon & stars) and Basic Grey Granola collection. Gotta have chipboard on my pages, along with a little ribbon and metal.

Enojy! More cards to come this week... maybe a scrapbook page or two as well!
