My Boy!

Hi folks! Hope your weekend was a good one!!! I had a busy but also fun day yesterday. It was perfect snow for building snowmen and stuff so we spent the afternoon out and ended it with wet socks and hot chocolate. Life is good. Check theese two guys out!!!

I have another photo - a photo of me and my boy. My blogging buddy Julie is a smiling and wise woman and she wrote an amazing blog post about the importance of getting IN the photos with our children. Life is short, sometimes too short and we should be part of the story we scrapbook no matter what - if we have a bad hair day or not... I can't express the meaning of this half as good as Julie can so check out her post HERE!!!  

Inspired by amazing Julie I decided to try take a photo a month this year with me and my boy and this is for January.


I chickened out a little, I phtoshoped away my allergy.... and turned it into black&white. God, I'm vain... Hopefully I'll grow in this! :):):)

I used the photo for this year's first layout! I really LOVE how it came out!!! I got the fabbie BoBunny papers in my DT kit from Scrap-Perra, and all product info can be found HERE (in Swedish).

Min fina pojk

I based the design on Sketchy Thursday's GDT sketch. It's a great sketch, so many possibilities!!!

The challenge was also to incorporate red and/or pink (check), journaling (check) and hearts. I have hearts on two of the papers and there are also two heart shaped stick pins (check).

Thanks for letting me share! Have a beautiful new week and see you around!

Wow, vilken läcker layout! :) Så fin! Tack för att du titta in i min blogg..:) Snart ses vi igen, det ska bli kul!
Pappret jag använt till kortet kommer från echo park "Everybody loves christmas" och det är snögubbar på baksidan. :)

Ha en bra måndag!
Kram Sara

Great Snowman picture with your boy and your layout is wonderful. I know we should be in more photos especially the ones with our kids, unfortunately I am a behind the camera kinda girl. :P
