14 Years Ago

Wow talk about last year flying by - where did the last 14 go?

This time 14 years ago we were in hospital scared that we would lose our first born son, he was fighting for his life in neo natal with a blood poisoning, and it was 9 days before we could take him home. Nothing compared to others but very devastating for us at the time. Then when we took him home it was in a pavlic Harness for hip displaysia full time for 4 months hard work for a first time mum recovering from a c-section.
It seems just like yesterday but here is my little boy today (those that know him are going to wonder what the heck? lol his friend straightened his hair for a laugh)And yes he makes me feel Short!

and one with his cheat of a cake (i know I brought it - but i did make cinnamon oysters so thats makes it ok doesn't it? lol)

He had a couple of friends over and we took them to the bay where everyone except the photographer (thank god - I HATE the sea) ended up getting thrown in, but they had so much fun.


I also created another layout here it is (and it is another original Beck notch that one up!)




The boarder around the page is done with Martha Stewart Punch around the pages punch - this is my newest MOST FAV TOOL! This was SO easy (well once I figured out that I could pull the wings out on the corner punch to make it exactly centered pays to read the instructions!) You can punch corners with it but also on your page (without the wings out). This is what they look like:

cost $60.00 for both punches which is fantastic value really as the boarder punches are $41.00 and the other punch is $35.00 so a saving purchasing them as a pack - great for card making too!
Anyway that's about enough from me for the moment i have taken some photos of my messy scrap room - man do i get in a mess when I scrap are there any clean scrappers out there?

Have a great week everyone catch you all soon
Take care
Rachel

Why he would want to straighten that gorgeous hair is beyond me. But we all want what we don't have! LOL.
