Too fast...

My son is growing like a weed. It's hard to really notice until I sit down and look through past photos, or realize that everything in his drawers is suddenly too small for him. It IS easy to see how much he is learning though, like when I listened in on his "pre-naptime talk" to himself and heard him successfully count to 8. He's only been 2 for a month and I know that all these changes will just keep on coming at a rapid pace. Still, it's hard as I want him to stay my little guy forever, but it is also exciting to watch him grow and learn- and be proud of himself for his accomplishments.

I found this photo the other day and knew I wanted to enlarge it on a page. I also thought it would be fun to do the title ON it, so I cropped it with that in mind. I did something similar on this page: Road Trip. I think I'll be doing this more often as I really like the look!
I'm also working on Christmas blocks for a quilt that I've had sitting around for a  year now. I kept meaning to get it together this summer, but it's summer- so why would I be inspired to do anything Christmasy that early? =)  I'm paying for it now though- if I don't get it done in the next two weeks it will likely sit another year- we're going on vacation for the month of November and I know I won't have time to do it with the hustle and bustle of December.

So far I have 3/12 blocks finished and it takes me about an hour and a half per block. Better get crackin!


  1. I love the photo in the page, and the starburst paper is so perfect for it! FAB!
    And your quilt squares are GREAT! I wish I could sew!

  2. Oh! I saw your gorgeous page in the gallery! So bright and pretty! The quilt looks great too! :)

  3. Great photo and very cool layout! I love it!

  4. OMG, that layout is really beautiful! Love the title on the page.

  5. I noticed this page right away in the gallery as well. Perfect photo, title placement, the sun paper placement, REALLY good work!
