Me and My Boys

Happy Friday,

I don't know about you all but since I scrap I am always taking pictures.  For the month of September I think I took over 200 pictures.  The problem is I am taking the pictures so I am NEVER in them.  First, let me say I love my hubby very much, but he is not a great picture taker.  I got a new camera for my birthday (I will have to post a review soon--i love it!) and one of the things that I wanted for my birthday was a picture of me and my boys together.  Well he did it!  I just love this picture.  I actually have it framed, and it is sitting on my desk at school. I also need to frame it and give it to my mom for Christmas.  She has been asking for a picture of the 3 of us.  Do you all have the same problem--that you are never in any of the photos that you scrap?  How do you solve this problem?

So of course I had to scrap this picture.  I am very rarely in their scrapbooks so  I just had to make this one.  I think it turned out great!  I used the Basic Grey Oliver collection.  Here is a look at the collection:
I just love all the colors and designs.  I am always amazed by  their papers.  So here is what I cam up with:

As you can tell I am still into the layering concept of using many differnt pieces of paper.  I ama really happy with this one.

Cardstock:  bazzill
pattern paper:  basic grey oliver, basic grey basics
tab:  quickutz
fiskars: border punch
buttons:  paper trey ink, basic grey
Button twine:  paper trey ink
really old heart brad--no idea
mini paper clips and staples:  tim holtz

Well I hope everyone has a great day and I will be back with a new layout tomorrow. Do you all have some scrappin' plans?  I am going to try! I want to make some kits together for my first ever crop next friday.  I can't wait!   Thanks so much for stopping by!

Wonderful layout. You are right. I have more photos of my children and grandchildren with my husband than there is of me and mine. LOL

That is a wonderful photo!

Yes, I'm never in any of our photos as I'm always the one taking the picture. I fear my children will grown up thinking they were orphans or something.

Great layout.... but the Picture is really what makes it awesome! Your hubby did a great job!

Ohh that is such a sweet layout. Your boys are adorable.
I am rarely in photos and the ones I am in I look horrible.
My hubby and daughters are the photographers in the family, I just take pictures LOL.
