Layouts from this weekend

I am taking Library of Memories over at Big Picture Scrapbooking for a second time. The class started last week. I started using the system last year for the most part. There are some areas I didn't fully implement that I hope to do this time around. I do have to say that it definitely has improved my organization. It also cuts down a lot of time of searching for what I want to work on.

We have got Jackson into a bedtime routine that has worked now for the past 3 nights. He even slept 10 hours last night. It was great, and Mike and I had a few hours for our hobbies. I made 5 layouts last night I haven't been that productive in a while.

I have not done a lot of layouts for Jackson yet. So I worked on that last night. I used the Making Memories Animal Crackers line for these 3 layouts. I added American Crafts Thickers and a couple of brads to the first one.

Our little guy turned 3 months old this past week. I love this picture I took of him last weekend. It is the look he gets on his face when he is chatting up a storm.

3 Months 2/09
This is one of my favorite pictures of Mike and Jackson just minutes after Jackson was born.

Kiss Me 2/09

Jackson is affectionately known as Peanut or Peanut Butter. Nicholas is Pumpkin Pie or Pumpkin for short. Pumpkin Pie and Peanut Butter are two of my favorite things. I can't believe how small he was. This was when he was 3 days old taken while we were waiting for me to be discharged from the hospital.

My Peanut 2/09

This layout was one I had started a while ago from a Basic Grey class I took at the CKC-Mesa convention last April. I never finished it, so I finished it up and found some pictures from the park that worked great with these BG Archiac papers.

Dinomite Kid 2/09

This one was a page kit I picked up at the CKC Mesa convention last year. I never put it together. I loved the title that was on the sample from the kit since it went so well with these pictures. So I pretty much kept the layout the same as the sample.

Serious Boys - 2/09

Read your last couple of posts. With our son we took a class through church called "raising children God's Way" by the Ezzo's. Their book in stores is called "Babywise" . It totally worked for us and the 2 other babies from our class. All three were sleeping 8 hours a night at 6 weeks/7 weeks. Matthew is 5 1/2 months and we're having some issues this week, but he has his first cold so I'm chalking it up to that. Hope he keeps sleeping well!!!
