First baby boy page!

It was so nice to take a little bit of time to do some scrapping after about 8 weeks of not doing any! This page came together over the course of a couple of days - not something that usually happens, I usually like to sit down and finish a layout once I've started but obviously that's not practical anymore so I'm going to have to adapt my scrapping style!
I used lots of the gorgeous new Pebbles Inc New Arrival range along with plenty of other bits & pieces, and I'm really pleased with how it's turned out. There are so many things I want to write about and document, but until I can figure out a way to get those feelings and events down on paper in a way that does them justice it's simple journalling all the way!

Hold the press, I've actually got some photos printed out and some lovely new baby boy stash (Pebbles - new arrival boy). It's the first time I've scrapped in the last 6 weeks & it feels good! I was a bit nervous at starting to scrap pictures of Benjamin, but I figure I can always scrap the same photo twice if it all goes wrong haha! I have the journalling all ready, written a couple of weeks ago thanks to Shimelle's True Stories prompts. I also have fab new iPhone app sketches2scrapbook for inspiration in case i get stuck!
So watch out for a layout soon!

Time flies by...

I know it's a little while since Halloween, but I wanted to show you these cute cute pics of my little boy all dressed up in his pumpkin suit!

I can't believe how big my little baby is getting already! He's almost 6 weeks now, and the days are just flying by. Some days I look at him and think how tiny he is, still so fragile. But other times I see a real little boy, full of character and love. He's smiling lots now, which is just amazing (he's got such a cheeky grin!), and he's starting to show interest in toys and lights - he's fascinated by mirrors and shiny things!

A little reminiscing about being pregnant - it seems like a long long time ago that I was this size! He's grown a bit since he was born, but I'm still totally amazed that he fitted in there! I made this page for a sketch challenge over at Sarah's Cards, but I wanted to share it here too. The journalling, a letter to 'baby' was written about 2 weeks before he was born.
