Love Fiercely and Courageously Today

Hi Bloggers! It's been ages since I blogged, but we've been sooooo busy here getting things ready for the arrival of our fourth baby boy! I'm so excited! In 8 days I will be a mama to 4 boys! Eeeeek!! We have been doing major renos and moving boys into different rooms and it's quite awesome how much work we've gotten done in a small amount of time! I am very blessed to have some great friends that have come to help me out too! 

In THIS POST I showed you some pictures of the start of our bedroom renos...well, now it's finished and we're officially sleeping in our new basement bedroom! 

We've now moved all the boys into their own rooms, and now we just have to paint the nursery and set that up! 

I made this layout for Scrapbook Nerd Summer Camp. The challenge is to alter a photo. These are instagram pictures that I made into black and white. 

I also wanted to play along with One Little Word. The word this month is FIERCE. And I'm just realizing as I post this, that I totally spelled it wrong!! arrrrggghh!!!! 

I love these pictures of Chris and I. The funny thing about the second one is that I was originally going to make this layout with only the photo on the left, but then it felt uneven, so I made my husband do a kissy lovey selfie photo shoot so I could print another one off to scrap!! I couldn't get a good one to save my life, so by the end I was trying really hard not to laugh, and the picture kinda looks like I don't want to kiss him! I was just laughing so hard I couldn't contain myself! lol Only a scrapbooker would make her husband do selfie kissy face pictures so her layout would turn out! lol

I used my June kit from the Paper Bakery for this layout...I was originally going to mist that fabulous Heidi Swapp mist resist paper, but I really liked it in black and white!

I also used this sketch from the Paper Bakery for this layout:

Well, hopefully I have some more time to scrapbook (and blog) before this little bean is born!!

  10. I love the memories this wonderful piece of art has created!! Nothing is perfect and your little spelling mistake would barely be noticed had you not mentioned it...after all 4 boys...wow you girl are entitled to more than a little spelling mistake...you are an angel who can make her own new words should she want to!! Congratulations on your 4th!!
