American Crafts NSD Blog Hop + Giveaway

*********WINNER**********
Angie, this is super cute! I love the pictures and the paper strips behind those pictures :) Love the title too!

Congrats!!  Please email your address!

Hello and welcome to our 2014 American Crafts National Scrapbooking Day Blog Hop.  Each designer picked a fun challenge for you to try and I hope you will find time to due just that :)



For my challenge I would like for you to show "growth" in pictures.  This can be a child, plants, pets, ect.  Spring and summer are all about things blooming and growing!  It's fun to look back and see how something has grown.

My layout shows my son growing.  I wish he would stay little ;)  I used the American Crafts new #Summer line.  Yes, this line can be used for something other than summer ;)





Here are some close ups:

  56. OMGEE - your little guy is just so adorable! Soooo A-dorable!!!

    I have two boys and how I wish they were still small too - I feel old when I tell anyone they're 21 and 18 already - but believe me, time flies, so get those moments, memories and photographs crammed in while you can! I hadn't discovered scrapbooking back then - I wish I had though - but now, I at least get to enjoy it when they don't need me so much anymore!!!

    Such a generous prize you're giving away just for having the pleasure of being able to tell you how gorgeous your little man is!!! I guess we might get lucky twice then???? !!
