Oh, how I miss these two. Noah is growing without my eyes to behold him. Ella is being such a wonderful, attentive big sister. I see attitude growing strong in this little guy. He's becoming an apple of my eye and I can't wait until the next time I get to scoop him up in my arms. Sweet, sweet people - these two!

Sure do wish I knew what Noah was thinking!

Even though I've been creating quite a few 1-photo pages, like this one, I truly do prefer pages with multiple photos. But - I can't help fall for pages that come together easily like this one did using One Little Bird's digital kit, Honey Crisp. The papers are subtle and the elements are perfect for numerous types of pages. In the back of my mind I knew I wanted to use a digital kit I hadn't played with yet (I have quite a few). The beauty of digital is they can be used over and over again, but just like traditional scrapbooking we can consume kits rapidly and 'hoard' so to speak, or just not use them because kits get lost in the latest and greatest from our favorite designers. That is why I made a point of using a kit I hadn't used yet. In addition, I'm trying to stay on top of photos I get uploaded since I have full access to my computer now that the boys have their own laptops; this photo was one lone photo I snagged from Facebook.
