Urijah: 2 Album

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

This little ball of energy was in the apartment this weekend. It's been dubbed Hurricane Urijah.

I love him to pieces
and could hug him & squeeze him
and hear him giggle & see him smile
and watch him run & jump
all day long!

Which must be why I can scrap photos of him for hours on end =)

I've started his 2 album. His 0-12 months album was 8x8, his 1 album was 12x12 (but featured a variety of sizes) and this year's album is 8 1/2 x 11. It's going to be a challenge for me I'm sure!

But I ended up getting some We R Memory Keepers pocket page protectors and I'm thinking this will help the cause.

Here are the first few pages of his album, featuring some Paper Moon goodness. Oh and btw, I bought the Paper Moon and the Space Cowboy add-on and fully intend to use all of it until it's gone, in this album of my nephew.

I loved all of the different primary colors in this kit, which is how the idea of this layout came about.

I cut a strip off the end of most of the sheets and used them as my journaling block.

I LOVE this photo of my Papa and Urijah. I was standing in the window on the ledge, to get this shot of the two of them, looking oh so serious, when really they are not. It's printed onto metallic paper (from scrapbookpictures.com) and is just gorgeous and so luminescent in person.

This layout is about Grandpa and the special song he made up a for his favorite little boy, which he sings it constantly whenever Urijah is around. (It's catchy and gets stuck in my head frequently!!)

I had to get this shot of them and their feet. My Papa wears a size 12 shoe. Urijah John already ready wears a size 6T. He's a little guy, but man are his feet and his hands so big!
He has to get them from Grandpa John!

Oh, and the green is a pattern I made with a houndstooth background stamp, some clear embossing ink and my trusty mists. I'm pretty sure I used Pickle Mister Huey and one of my green Maya Mists.

And last but not least a quick baseball card type one, with 1 sheet of Crate patterned paper, cut down to fit inside the page protector. I printed this photo using my photo printer, but instead of the photo paper, I sent a sheet of cardstock through. It makes for a more vintage feel.

I'm bound and determined to not fall behind on Urijah's scrapbooks.
And I'm making progress on 2!
