It's beginning to feel a lot like FALL...

Still can't believe it's fall already, but I agree with Lora, every season does have it's beauty. And I do love fall. I just wasn't ready for it yet. But I am enjoying the cooler weather though.

So... I don't know where to start. I try to do so much while our little one is taking a nap! I type too fast (thinking our little one might wake up any minute) and then delete, and rewrite again... because my four year old keeps asking questions and showing me her new ideas...

Here is my sweet little reason I can't blog as often as I would like to:

He is the reason I don't get much done. He is the reason I learn how to work with one hand. He is the reason we whisper at home. He is the reason I wake up a few time every night. He is the reasons I don't go much anywhere. But he is the reason we smile, and laugh, and love, and give thanks, and hear someone kissing him once again! He is the best reason I could ask for and we love him beyond measure! He is just a little angel.

Yes, he does have a golden shade in his hair, but these pictures look a little too orangee. Pictures were taken yesterday at sunset by the window.

Now, back to scrapbooking... On the latest Roundtable Episode there was a discussion brought by a Roundtable listener about how to work with pictures that were cut in shapes years ago. It was a trend back then and unfortunately I have some of those circle cut pictures too. Just thinking about that makes me flinch:((

I decided to pull one of those circle cut photos and use it on a layout. I found a layout by Marie-Laure and used it as a guide to make my page. 

I went with the fall theme for colors and picture, but my story has nothing to do with the event. I really want to tell more meaningful stories. Instead of writing how we decided to go take a few pictures before fall was over, and on our trip we didn't find much of the pretty fall scenery... I just wrote something I wanted to tell my daughter back then...

This is very simple LO and was just made this morning.

Feels good to have complete a page.

Thanks for stopping by. Thank you everyone who takes a minute to leave a couple of words. This way I know you were here. Have a great day and enjoy this gorgeous fall weather!

My "reason" is calling me :) See you soon!

  2. Awww...Anya, your story on the layout touched me. Why do you say that about yourself? It's NOT True!!!
    I remember too, how I was cutting every photo into a shape. Yikes! Eslibi hot' etot shape bil circle ato the shapes I used to cut mine to don't even resemble a shape...
    Wow, I didn't know you went to Myrtle Beach too! Post more pics about it!
    And sure, your little boy is a reason for many many things!

  3. AWWWW, MOM!!! He's soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo CUTE!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3
    And I love what you wrote on the layout. Everyone should read it ;)

  4. Beautiful layout Anya. I especially like the colour combo.

  5. Thanks everyone for your kind words! Спасибо девочки! Я специально писала маленькими буквами, но не знаю как вы додумались прочитать:) Работаю над слеующей страничкой и надеюсь скоро закончу ту кучу начатых страниц с набора :)

  6. Yes, these little reasons are very time consuming but life without them wouldn't be the same. My hubby always says to me "how did we live without him?" :)
    He looks so cute on the pictures, and that hair!!! :)
    Very nice lo. Yes, we can read any font and size you write, we will try to find a way to read it ;) Such beautiful words, so important to have that inner beauty as well as the outer, otherwise in the end we will become bitter old women lol
    Very good at making that shape work on the lo :)

  7. P.S. Anya and Anka....I know exactly what you are talking about! You should see the first scrapbook I ever made, it was for my aunt with pictures of Victoria. Yea....

  8. Да я согласна с тем что Бог тебя благословил с семьей и красивыми детками. Но мне кажется когда у человека добрая и красивая душа это главное. Но Бог тебя одарил очень многим. Аня ты очень красивая многодетная МАМА.... Пусть Бог вас благословляет и дальше.....Инна К

  9. Ха-ха... Да, я не подумала что столько утешения придет в мою сторону:) Лора, оказывается все начинают свой первый альбом с вырезанными фото в разные фигурки. Бедные фотографии... Инусик, добрая и красивая душа и есть та внутренняя красота о которой я писала в конце странички. Внешность, как трава увядает, я совершенно согласна.

    Девочки, у меня здесь идея появилась очень странная и к моему удивлению моя сестричка согласилась. Я в понедельник малыша к Ире отвезу на часика два чтобы что то сделать, так что если Ира не передумает, напишем новый пост:))

  10. ты говоришь наша Ева выросла??)а Сашенька вообще уже жених завидный!!так же они быстро растут....
