Missing My Baby Boy

I mentioned on a previous post that I pulled a bunch of Echo Park scraps together to form one huge boy themed kit. It was a great way to create quite a few pages while using a ton of older product. I'm all about trying to use goodies from my stash lately! 

Many of the papers matched pictures from when Brandon was really little. I took a walk down memory lane by scrapping lots of sweet baby photos. I miss him being this tiny! My first project features Brandon's professional pictures from his six month old shoot. I kept the embellishments to a minimum to keep the focus on my darling boy!

My husband smiled when he saw the next layout because it made him remember how I used to dress Brandon in a very preppy manner. Now all he wants to wear is jeans and tee shirts. I'm lucky if I can sneak a button down shirt in there on Sunday for church.

Grid pages are my favorite way to use lots of tiny paper scraps from collections that I love! 

I'll be back soon with a photo update. This week we are off of homeschool for Alexis' eye surgery because she'll need some time to recover. We're going to take one week off for Christmas, instead of two like the public schools to make up for the missed days.

Ok... this is too funny. I have pulled out some old EP too!! LOL I have Sweet Summer time and the Little Boy line out. My LO with the Sweet Summertime is very similar to yours too. LOL (I will load on my blog later today).
Both pages are really cute. I think we need to go back to doing our own little challenges. :)

These are so cute. I, too, just put all my older EP boy collections together and have been making pages about my grandsons. Thanks for sharing.

Awe, he's still your little man! Our boys dressed preppy too. The oldest went through a Matrix and chain paints stage......the youngest (now 20) still dresses conservative and now works part time in the mens at a department store (he wears a tie:)
