More quilt inspiration and a speedy, standing little guy

Here are a few pages I did a couple weeks ago but am just now getting around to posting!  I have been so busy the last two weeks.  Charlotte turned 3 last week (which I can't believe) and this 10 month old little guy is all over the place!!!!  He is climbing steps and putting everything imaginable in his mouth.  It's funny because from the time I take these photos, to the time it takes me to make a layout and then get the layout posted on my blog, almost a month can go by!!!  

I first saw Kyler standing in his crib on April 28th.  I knew he had done it before because I had heard him fall, and then there was the incident of the quilt being pulled off the wall.  I don't think the dust bunnies did that....

This was for a challenge at the Cocoa Daisy crop weeks ago and I had to create a grid, use 3 photos, the same stamp 3 times, and three of the same embellishment.




I decided not to center my grid and instead drag it all the way to the corner.  I used different squares for stamping, journaling, and adding paper.  These bright, fantastic papers are from Jillibean Soup.


Another challenge was based on some quilt inspiration.  I think the Priarie Hill line from Pink Paislee has some great, masculine colors.

This onesie that Kyler is wearing says "Speedy" on it.  I love the way his knees are bent in the bottom two photos to show how he is speedin' around. (And since these photo, he is now crawling on his hands and knees!)




These little circle shapes I made by cutting the papers in uneven wedges and then stitching the edges and cutting into a circle.  I also added a circle to the middle and stitched that, too.





We will be leaving in a few weeks to travel to NY state for the summer, so I am trying to get a lot of projects done before we leave!  I hate packing!!!!!!!!!

That little stitched embellishment is wonderful! I used to quilt way back when and really love the translation to scrapbook layouts!
