I am so happy today. Not only did I get my brand spanking new Nikon D40 yesterday (can't wait to start using that baby), but my son started to say ma-ma today. I just love hearing his little voice and I can't wait to hear what new words he discovers next. Every little thing he does now is just so adorable. Now that he is flying up the stairs of our house I know it won't be too long before he's walking (or running knowing him) around the house...

BaBa and DaDa

Ba-Ba and Da-Da, these became two of my favorite words over the weekend. Nicholas started talking. First came ba-ba and then da-da shortly followed. I love his little voice. It just amazes me how quickly he catches on to things now. Already 8 months old and becoming such a big boy.

Layouts I have done recently

here are a few layouts that I have done recently. my goal is to get some new ones done this weekend and hopefully submit some projects to a DT call.

Hello and Welcome

Hello. I have decided to start this little blog for two reasons 1. everyone I see on all the scrapbooking sites has one and 2. I'm really bored at work today! Anyway, let me introduce myself. I'm Nicole, nice to meet you. I live in Crest Hill, Illinois which is a suburb of Chicago. I was born in raised in Chicago near U.S. Cellular Field (GO SOX!) and just moved out to the 'burbs in July. I also had my son in July (it was a very busy month). Nicholas Aaron was born 7/31/07 weighing in at a whopping 9 lbs, 2oz (still can't believe he was that big). Nicholas is the most incredible thing that has ever happened to me. I truly enjoy every single moment of mommyhood (even those 2 a.m. wake up calls).

I have been scrapbooking on and off since I was a teenager but only started to really get into it within the last few years. I am currently serving as one of several stamp designers for Scrapbook Sussies and hopefully soon I will be writing to tell you I was chosen for a DT spot. That is my goal. That and scrapping the 1000s of pictures I have taken of my gorgeous son. Well, now that you know a little about me, leave me a comment and tell me about you! I would love to hear from you.
