Laughter !!!

My bubby laughed at us for the first time this morning and it was so cute. He was smiling alot just before then, so Nathan had gone and got the camera out to take some pics (Ive got him well trained already!!!) so managed to capture some photos of those first laughs - wish I had some of those sound strips to record it as well.

After reading Nics blogg and seeing her georgeous simple LOs for her favorite photos album, and reading a mag article on creating calenders I was inspired to alter a cheap calender I bought yesterday morning. The top is a 8 1/2" x 11" LO which is just clipped on with the bulldog clip, so I can remove it and put it in an album. I will do one for each month using favorite photos from the month before. They will all be basically the same with the CS strip with the month and a touch of PP that co-ordinates with the pics. I have also challenged myself to create the entire thing from my draws full of off cuts - Ive got to do something to start using them up!

Its really hot here today and were off in a minute for a swim in the kids cousins pool. Since I will be just sitting around with Isaac I might take the camera and see what I can capture.

Bye for now!

aw nic.....your little man is soooooo cute. and how cool to capture his first laughter on "film".
just love your whole calendar idea - very very cool.
the idea of using up off-cuts is appealing as well as my stash of them grows ever larger.
so glad you can find the time to scrap.
