My Guys

Hello there...I was itching to scrapbook...but to make myself do it, needed to keep it simple!  So...I decided to do a layout inspired by the Play Date Cafe Color Challenge this week.  My boys know that when we go on vacation, we try to get individual shots and a family shot wherever we are visiting. Quite often these turn into our Christmas card photo.   So for my layout today, I made a quick collage of the boys and inked up my PTI Grunge Me set along with some dark chocolate Basic Grey letters.  I look at my boys and can't believe how much they change from year to year.  I love them more than words could ever say.  Do you think that until your a parent you really understand the love your parents have for you? 
And...here's our family picture...squinty eyes...
And here's the collage again of my boys...since the layout seems a bit fuzzy on my screen!

  1. Wow, gorgeous family! Your LO is fabulous. And no I dont think until you are a parent you truly realize the love a parent could have for their child. I was thinking about the same thing just the other day.

  4. Hi Lynn

    The boys look so grown up-I was in the US when Ryan was born and he is so grown up now. And I have to disagree with you-I am not a parent but I know how much my parents love me-they are always and have always been there for me x

  5. A layout?! Wow, Lynn, you are just amazing at scrapbooking as you are in cardmaking! I love the look of the Grunge set on here (I also bought that too, because of what you have done with it!) and the colors. And, you are so talented in cardmaking, layouts AND photography. Your boys are so handsome.
