My new scrap love....

What a great Sunday afternoon. Adie took a 3 hour nap while mommy played in her scrap space WITH HER NEW TYPEWRITER! Seriously awesome. I was typing up labels on our typewriter at work the other day and it hit me.. I COULD TYPE ON 12x12 PIECES OF PAPER WITHOUT PURCHASING ONE OF THOSE LIKE $900 PRINTERS THAT PRINTS ON 12x12 PAPERS! (Okay so they aren't $900 and yes, the CAPS indicate shouting because I WAS shouting in my head.. I was so excited I figured out how to type on my 12x12's!) Checked with maintenance at work and they had an old typewriter they were going to pitch. My lucky day.. I now own a typewriter. Do you know how many people asked what in sam-hill I was going to do with a typewriter in the year of 2008?

To which I replied...

"Guys.. I'm a scrapbooker. If you want to see me do a cartwheel on top of my desk.. then by-golly bring me a typewriter."

It's also awesome for typing journaling on itty-bitty pieces of paper that can't go through my ink jet printer. Scrapbooking life is complete with my new typewriter and my SLR. AND Darin walked down into the basement and saw me typing on my new typewriter on Adie's tiny little play table and chairs as my knees were bent up to my chin and said,

"You are kidding me. Your scrap space is too small to set up your typewriter?"

Precisely! My gosh that boy is smart...

***

Now to pages...

A page about her forward facing in the car now... whipped out the felt for this one...

her 12 month page talking about what she was doing at 12 months...



Steps on how to get out of eating peas... can't say I blame her!



And my 4th about how she climbs on everything. Started at 10 months and I'm pretty sure it'll never stop.. her daddy climbed like 40 feet up into a tree the other day. Silly boy.



And on a side note.. I have almost always taken pictures of my pages to share with ya all. Turn off the ol' flash (key), put the page on the floor in under a well lit (but not direct sunlight) area and snap away. Crop it up so you all can't see my flooring and wa-la! Pretty easy way to share pages. BUT this is my recent obstical...
Adie Grace checking out her pages and walking away with them. Daddy had to run interferance on the picture taking of the above pages... thanks daddy!

How come Darin didn't snap a shot of you at Adie's little table & chair w/your knees bent up to your chin??? I absolutely love your 12 month pg. about Adie & all that she is doing. You did an awesome job capturing that! And your pea page is so hilarious & cute! And what an adorable pic of Adie confiscating your pgs. She knows a good thing when she sees it!
