labor of love. literally. :)

Took 3-ish hours this morning and organized all of Bug's pictures from her first year, tore apart the few pages I had done in her album and put it all in this box, labeled by month.  

It's all ready to PL into her new album.

I am ready to party!! :)  Can't wait to get this one in the books.  

(Again, literally.)

So excited for these guys!!
The mommy-to-be asked me to make her a banner for her maternity photos.

Pretty happy with how it turned out!

Not going to lie - I struggled with this challenge.  I thought I could do a cute spread with farm animals from Bug down on my parents farm, or with their cats, or or or.  I think I was overwhelmed with all of the choices that are available!  It took me finding this:

to finally decide what I was going to do.  Halloween = creepy crawly spiders!  PERFECT!

I made some 3x4 journaling cards - SUPER simple with washi tape, paper, and spider (found here):

The "Halloween" overlay can also be found here.

Here's the finished spread.  I love how simple yet festive it turned out.
