Last night Z and I surprised the kiddos with a dinner date and HOCKEY! Jellybean is a super fan and cheered the entire game. The dad of the birthday party in the row in front of us gave Jellybean and Z’s kiddos a free hockey puck. That was so very nice.

I took a hundred pictures at the game. I had to immediately scrap one picture that captured my nephew’s team spirit exactly. I hate that his hands are out of frame but it was too perfect not to scrap for his 4×6 scrapbook.

My Funny Valentine

Wednesday night the Jellybean and I decorated his valentines box. He asked to make a dragon and I could not say no. I found inspiration in a Pintrest post and with some scrapbook paper and glue, we made it happen. He told me that one of his friends stopped and said, “Cool!” Yay! This is the February entry for his Mini Project Life. I spent more time on this mini entry than I do on my standard scrapbook pages. (Once it took me 8hrs to create an ultra-simple 8.5×11 page, yes…I am THAT kind of scrapper)

Smash Book: K&Company black & white polka dot washi tape

Mini Project Life

After the boys spent the night I decided to create a small version of Project Life for them. I picked up a 4×6 photo album from Target. I am committing to creating at least 1 entry for each boy a month. The album I picked up contains enough pages for 24 entries for each kid. I will use the extra pockets for extra entries and to hold extra ephemera.

I created the title page using the Paislee Press Wood Grain Template Cards from the-lilypad.com. The wood veneer camera is from Studio Calico.

Below are the entries I created using digital templates and kits I have been dying to use.

I used a QR code for a cute video of the Jellybean and a simple 4×6 calendar template from Paislee Press. I found a font that is close to my own handwritting and love using it in all my scarpbooking. It is called Jenna Sue and can be found at daFont.com.

The entry I created for the Coco Puff was inspired by a txt my mother sent to us when she noticed my dad was watching TV in the same manner as my nephew did a few nights before. I had fun creating his page with more digital supplies I’ve been collecting. Below is the list of goodies used:
Colorbok metal accent heart

I recently upgraded to a DSLR camera. This past Easter I decided that my new photography subjects would be my nephews. Here are just a few of the pictures that I took of my Jellybean.

I love when my sister sends me picture messages of my beautiful nephews. These are the last 2 she sent me of the loves of my life! I need to plan their scrapbooks. Jellybean’s scrapbook needs major updating and I need to start the baby’s book. I have a lot of planning to do. Oy!
