A winner and a layout

Thanks to everyone who participated in the giveaway!  It was fun hearing from so many of you!  I was going to have Ellie randomly choose the winners so tonight before I put her to bed I told her to pick a number between 1 and 219.  She said “eighteen hundred.”  So.  Not only did I realize Ellie wouldn’t be picking the winners after all, I also realized we need to set aside some serious time for number practice.  :)

I used a random number generator which selected #32 and #97.  Winners are….

Pam who said  “I would love one of those big summery tote bags! It would be perfect for schlepping all of our gear to the beach. Love your blog!”


ReenieK Designs who said “LOVE these bags ! How cute is that little carry all bag!! That’d be great to keep in the car for my daughters little toys!!”

Congrats to you both!  Just click on the “e-mail me” button on the side of my blog (top right) and shoot me an e-mail with your contact info.  I’ll make sure Mary Beth gets a hold of you!

Sharing a quick layout I did last week for Kole’s baby album…

Journaling: Your first summer!  2 months old and chillin’ by the pool in your shades.  You are one laid back, easy going baby!  And we can’t get enough of you!

Love this picture of my little dude!  I have to say though that I’m not making a lot of major progress on his book.  Just throwing a page together here and there when I have a minute.  I don’t know how to scrapbook for a boy.  I’m trying really hard to keep things plain and masculine.  I told myself I wasn’t going to use my standby paper flowers on any of his layouts, but then I caved.  Convinced myself they looked like sunshines and were ok… just this one time.  :)

Have a great weekend everyone!

xoxo, Erin

  1. As a mom of 2 little boys, I often find myself frustrated at the lack of scrapbooking supplies for them…I can only make so many pages with dinosaurs on them!! I even got upset at my local store because they had 7 tables of cute little girl pages and products and NOTHING for boys. I was happy to see they listened and evened it out the next time I went in.

    My pages for them tend to be very streamline, like yours and I use a ton of green, blue, brown, white and maroon. I also stick flowers on their pages and use a lot of generic rubons…I don’t think they look Girly at all…/it’s all in the colour choice :-)

    Love your blog-thanks for all of your great ideas!!

  2. As the mum of one boy, I agree it’s a tad difficult to scrap his pages sometimes. The flowers do add to the page and with Kole looking so gorgeous how could you not add them. I miss those chubby bub cutie times.
