1st photo shoot

Good Morning,

A new week...Got any big plans? Vacation perhaps.

Sunday we drove over to PEI to see Xavier. Lots of driving but well worth the trip. Managed to squeeze in two bottle feedings. The little guy is really growing. This trip he didn't have quite as many smiles but he sure talked a lot.
Sharing a scrapbook page today. When Xavier and Mom & Dad came over for a visit in July we kidnapped Xavier and took him off to have his picture taken. lol We actually did it while we convinced Mom & Dad they should go to a movie. You know, there isn't much time between eating, sleeping and getting to the photographers to catch the time frame where he wants to smile. We did get some though.
We have another pose of Xavier on his tummy and we also had pics taken of the three of us. So cute. This scrapbook page is for Xavier's monthly calendar and I'll do up a couple of pages with the other photos for my scrapbook of him. I will share the pics just not yet.

Pretty simple page as the pattern paper does most of the work. The cricut machine was used on the lettering and I cut strips of cardstock to match the pattern paper to frame the picture. The line of pattern paper is Baby Safari. I had started out with using paper from "My Little Yellow Bicycle." I cut the paper and then didn't like how it went together. I had originally bought that paper for another page, now I'm hoping I can make it work for something else or I'll be on a hunt for another piece. I've checked the local stores and don't see it so I maybe making a trip to Antigonish to the Stamp & Scrap as I'm pretty sure they have it there.

Busy day today. Cleaning, laundry, banking, delivering stuff, picking up my glasses.

Don't YOU work to hard today and I'll check in tomorrow.
