Exploring with my boy

Blogger heard my desperate pleas and my picture uploaded!! What a Day!

So Ann(i)e's Challenge was to use 7 different pieces of patterned paper. This was good for me in so many ways! I have been hoarded this paper from ScrapAddict's Fashion Forward Kit. Why do I think paper is too beautiful to cut up? And these pictures of Kade and I have been sitting on my desk waiting for the perfect time to be used. I loved the layout Annie did so much that I lifted the way she laid out her patterned paper and mat paper.

There is not any journaling on this but I can vividly remember talking with Kade on the beach. We talked about all kinds of things....what he thought third grade would be like, what it would feel like to be bitten by a honu, things we love to eat....just little things...but things that remind me that my boy is growing up.

Of course there is also the embarrassing side to the pics....after Greg took these and Kade and I kept walking on down the beach, I slipped hard and cut up my knees and hands. Could it have been because I was wearing flip flops on moss covered rocks? Sure! But I didn't want to loose anytime changing my shoes when I could have been hanging out with my son. The cuts {and embarrassment} were worth it!

I love that you treasure the times you got to talk with Kade over vacation. How many people would take it for granted? Beautiful layout, of course. How can you go wrong with that kit?

oh gosh you cut up your BG UC range? I'm hyperventilating right here at the thought :D

Seriously it's a beautiful page, I love the way you've used b/w pictures and the placement of them.

Great page. You really should journal on a tag and hide it.
