9 Months

This week for sketch for Simple Sketches was a lot of fun to work with. I was very inspired by the grungy look of the sketch and it definitely played out on  my page.  I chose to scrapbook Kirk's 9 month photos that I took of him.  Even though I took almost the same photos every month for the first year of Kirk's life I think the 9 month photos are some of my favorite.  His little face is adorable and I just really like the way the photos turned out.  I used Tim Holtz paper and distress ink for this page.

Father & Son

This week for Simple Sketches I'm going a bit out of order.  The last sketch was due on a day that I was hosting Kirk's second birthday party (post here).  With all the decorations I made and the baking and cooking I did I just didn't have a lot of time to scrapbook so I traded weeks with one of the lovely ladies of team B.  This week's sketch was a lot of fun to work with and the page came together really easy.

One of the best parts of being a parent, for me, is watching my partner be a parent as well.  Seeing his love for our son has made me love him more.  Watching them play together has brought me endless joy.  I just used a bunch of random photos of the two of them together that I had printed out.  I thought they made a really cute page.  I used My Mind's Eye's Cut and Paste line for this page as well as Thickers and some ink.

Kirk's Second Birthday Party!

For Kirk's second birthday we decided to seize the opportunity of his last party with out his opinion for a theme and throw him a Star Trek birthday party.  It was a lot of fun and he really enjoyed himself.  Here are some photos of the party.
