Sailing Through September!

The time has flown so quickly.  The last time I posted was August 9th and here it is 9/23!  How does that happen?  I guess Life Happens!!
Since that time, my kids have all started back to school - and boy was that a huge deal.  All 4 kids in school for the first time in 16 years!  I have no little ones at home in the morning, but that time goes fast though.  It also means that I have 4 different school schedules to keep track of and I am the family taxi.
With all my kids so big, I love to scrapbook older photos and reminisce over those little faces.  This month, I spent more time on older photos than normal.  I have been scouring my older photos and trying to clean up my digital files.  That is a HUGE job in itself.  My old "vault" with pictures from 2000-2010 has 15,000 photos on it!

Here is the oldest one - My Grandpa and his friend Oakie in about 1949 using Gingerscraps Buffet pieces from
Dagi's Temp-taions - Autumn Glory Templates 
Little Rad Trio - Fishing Fun 
Pixelily Outdoor Explore Artsy Papers 
When my youngest started school, I did a little looking back to when my now 10th grader started Kindergarten from 10 years ago.

Clever Monkey Graphics - School Rules

I did this double page spread from 4 years ago and my son's friend's 1st birthday party in the park.
Also with Buffet items, it includes
Dear Friends Designs - Celebrate 
Aprilisa Designs - Picnic in the Park 
B2N2 Scraps - The Great Outdoors Patterned Papers 
Pixelily Designs - Outdoor Explore 
Connie Prince - Nature Walk Kit 
Boomers Girls Designs - Beach Boys Extra Alphas 

I just love looking at these pics of my little man as a baby!  I had snapped these pictures of him at the library and used a dinosaur kit that matches his outfit that I loved and a play on words.
Magical Scraps Galore - Prehistoric World 
Dear Friends Designs - Shape Me Template 

Then, I re-scrapped a page that I did awhile ago that I just never loved.  Do you ever have that, where you just don't love how a page turns out.  LJS came out with a kit for empty-nesters - meaning parents whose kids have left the nest, but I couldn't help but re-do this page of an actual nest with it's baby birds.

Boys are so much fun.  You have to let them play in the mud and dirt and worms - it is just a boy thing!!

Here is another old one.  I just love fall!  All the apples, pumpkins, cool weather.  So, I just love all the kits that come out this time of the year.
