Vroom vroom!

Hey, mama...what do you drive? No matter what your mom-mobile may be, you need to document it you can remind your little ones when they're grown what you used to chauffeur them around in. Constantly. Check out this kit - Mom's Taxi, by Simply Scrappy:

How much fun is that?! Okay, the first thing I did was completely scraplift my fellow CT member, Stacy. You can see her original layout here. Or you can just keep looking, because I really did just shamelessly copy everything but her actual journaling and background paper. Hey, sometimes a layout is just too perfect not to have for your very own. ;)

You can click to see it full-sized, if you're so inclined. So, after completely ripping off Stacy's page, I thought I should do something a little more original with it, and here's what I came up with:

Heehee! I'm a little giddy over it. My pages usually aren't that busy, but I had a great time piecing that together. :) So, if you GO GO GO too...head on over to Elemental Scraps and pick up Mom's Taxi! You can have all of the elements, papers, worn papers, and even some templates for $7. Have fun!

So precious...

So, last week I finally got to meet, in person, my sweet little nephew that lives on the opposite end of the country. He's such a precious baby! I've been working on scrapping his first year as a first birthday gift, although I'm not doing them in any particular order. So even though he's six months old now, I think I'm finally happy with these two newborn pages.

NOTE: Should my wonderful sister-in-law stumble across my scrap blog, she should probably skip this post, so as to be surprised come February-ish. :)

I'm forever on the lookout for great baby boy kits...having two girls, I have NONE in my collection. I prefer kits that are baby-ish but not super cutesy...clean and classy is my goal for my nephew's album. Sweet Pea Whimsy (boy version) by Ruby Lane worked nicely for these pages:

This kit is on sale now for $4 at Funky Playground, and there's a ton of cuteness to work with! Here's what I did...

Whew, these BOY pages just don't come as easily to me as girly pages. Guess it's all in what you get used to, huh? More to come!
