August 23, 2007 - This was our last night staying in the hospital after Kennedy was born. She slept in bed with me - it was so nice to hold her close all night!


I used:
Cricut's Base Camp for "Sleep,"
Cricut's George and Basic Shapes and
Design Studio to make off-centered circle,
Cricut's Mini Monograms and Design Studio
to create scalloped rectangle,
Cricut's Street Sign for the arrow,
and my Cuttlebug and a Quickcutz die for photo corners.

Dishwasher Baby

These pictures were taken on September 13, 2008 - I was putting away dishes and turned back around to find that Kennedy had climbed onto the dishwasher door!

Sleepy Baby

These pictures were taken on August 25, 2007 and August 28, 2007, when Kennedy was just a few days old. It's hard to imagine now that there was actually a time when she wanted to sleep! Now we have to try and try to get her asleep!

"Sleepy Baby"

I used:
Cricut's All Mixed Up for the flower,
Cricut's Storybook for "SLEEPY,"
Cricut's Opposite's Attract for "baby,"
and Cat's Eye Colorbox Chalk Inks in
Pink Pastel, Yellow Citrus, and Olive Pastel.

Better Not Pout

We went to the mall yesterday to have family pictures done at Flash! Portraits. They turned out really good, although Kennedy wouldn't smile for ANYTHING in our family ones! (View them at www.flashportraits.com - Last Name/Password is Hoyle)

After we were done, we had Kennedy's picture taken with Santa. She was a bit scared, but didn't cry! I'm so proud of myself for scrapping this page the DAY the picture was taken! I'm about a year behind on the other stuff! Yikes!

"Better Not Pout"

I used Cricut's DonJuan for "Better Not Pout" and
Cricut's Design Studio to weld the letters,
Cricut's Mini Monograms for scalloped square,
Cricut's George and Basic Shapes and Design Studio to create ornament,
Martha Stewart Branch Punch,
Date stamp by Catslife Press,
and Stickles in Xmas Red.
