When does life slow down?

It seems that now that I have a little one, life is traveling at mach ten. I don't even know where the time goes, it is just gone. It is like some crazy sci-fi movie around here. Do you ever feel like that?

So, onto some scrappy stuff. I haven't posted much scrappy stuff lately, so here is a few to wet your palate. I recently became a designer for Green Tangerines kit club. It is really such a blessing for me, as I have always wanted to do this. I love it. This kit was actually their December kit. Their kits run a month behind, with the idea that you will already have tons of great photos to scrap for the month when you get your kit. This is what I made with this kit.

The first layout was actually photos from Halloween. I loved Halloween this year. Matteo was so excited. He is actually the reason why I dressed up. Matteo said, "Mommy, I be Mickey and you be Minnie." How could I say no to that? So here we are.

This next one is one of Matteo's new favorite pastimes. He loves board games, and he loves to count everything these days. So, the Hi-Ho-Cherry-O game is a new favorite in our house. I love how he can "get into it".

Here is a close up of some of the embellishments. Aren't those Jillibean buttons to die for?

This is the one card that I made with this kit. I love the little Green Tangerines original cards. I actually used on on the layout below too. This one is for home.

This is my favorite layout from this kit. I love the color combinations, a subtle grey with a few pops of color. Plus I have to say that I just love these photos of Matteo too. I know I am biased, but I don't care. heehee

Here is a close up. I use Maya Mist in silver on the card stock to give a bit of shimmer, but not too much. I hope you can see it clear in this photo. It was a bit difficult to catch.

This is the last one. It is my only single pager. I don't know why, but I don't do these very much. I think I just really like to use more photos, but I do like this one. This photo was shot this past Fall during our family photo shoot with Skye. She does such a wonderful job. I can't say enough good things about her.
I think my favorite thing about this layout is how the red just pops off the background, and of course I used another one of those exclusive Green Tangerines labels. This time I used the family one.

Well, that is all for me today. I do have some other layouts to share, but I have to wake up the little sick boy. If I don't he won't sleep tonight either, and I can't have another sleepless night.

Love the last page. So sweet. By the way your layout photos are fabulous. Can you share some of your secrets? I think there must be something wrong with my Canon. :(
