I Have Been Waiting for This!

I was sad to see the month of October come to an end, because it also ended my GDT spot at Sketchy Thursdays!  But I am also glad to be back and playing along with the weekly challenges, starting today!  It was a weird feeling doing the layouts way ahead of time and then when Thursdays got here, not playing a long in the challenge.  So when I saw today's sketch, I decided to jump right on it!  I LOVE these pics of my son!!  Already at the age of 2 1/2 he is a HANDFUL...mischevious and all over the place, but those dimples usually end up getting him out of a lot of trouble!  :)  The Toy Box collection from Crate paper is perfect for these fun little boy layouts and I had lots of little bits and pieces of it from my friend Amanda Johnson.  I have got to get my hands on some more of the papers though, because my LSS only had about three different patterns in last time I checked!  EEEKKKK!

I also had one other quick layout I wanted to share.  Believe it or not, this one is just a layout for layouts challenges whatsoever on this one.  I enjoyed using the October Afternoon Sidewalks collection for this page.  It's almost as if they were made perfectly for my photos!!  :)

  1. Love these! Fantastic layouts! :)

  2. I love your layouts. Your son is so cute! I know what you mean by handful. I think it's that age. When my youngest son was 2, I'd find him in the sink all the time. Every sink in the house, he'd be sitting in it. But that's how boys are. Full of love, mischief, and energy! You captured that with your son perfectly. Also I really like the gulf page. Great paper! Cute little girl too!

  3. love your LOs! the little word tags and mixed font title are so fun!

  4. Love what you did with the sketch! Adorable boy page. Love the title for the beach page!

  5. Both of your layouts are FAB! Good job with the GDT gig! Thanks for playing along with Sketchy Thursdays! xoxo Heather

  6. I love both of these layouts! I can't wait to scrap those little boy moments of my own--I've been saving a lot of your LOs as inspiration! And I managed to grab a few pieces of that Toy Box collection too, can't wait to use them! :) ps-Thanks for playing along with ST!

  7. Ashley, I love both of these layouts!!! You definately know how to rock the little boy layouts!! Love what you did with Sidewalks, too, quite gorgeous!!

  8. Beautiful layouts! Love all about your pages! Wonderful photos :)
