I had a challenge to use the Capture Pad cards in a new and fun way, so I decided to make mini books that slide into sleeves that are designated for each year since we’ve had our babies. Alexes Brown-3 copy Alexes Brown-4 copy

it’s easy to slide those mini booklets into the sleeves along with other memorabilia you might want to save for memories! Alexes Brown-5 copy Alexes Brown-6 copy Alexes Brown-7 copy Alexes Brown-8 copy Alexes Brown-9 copy Alexes Brown-10 copy Alexes Brown-11 copy Alexes Brown-12 copy Alexes Brown-13 copy

Pretty Pinterest Picks

Alexes Marie Brown - Pretty Pinterest Picksahhhhh…. don’t you just love a good pinterest session? I know I do! I’m up early this morning and my babies are still asleep in their beds so I thought I’d take some time to share my Pretty Pinterest Picks!

First up is this ridiculously good looking Apple Crisp from Creme de la Crumb, doesn’t it just look divine?? I want some stat! Our oven broke recently so I’ve been dying to make all sorts of autumn desserts but haven’t been able to… There should be some type of law against women not being able to consume delicious desserts in the 38th week of pregnancy.

Then theres that dress…. ohhhmygoodnesss…. I want it… I just want to wear it alll dayyy longgg. It’s so pretty and feminine, It just speaks to me. Check out the rest of this gorgeous bridal session here.

If you haven’t already checked out The Project Girls halloween projects, you definitely should. Like right now… go ahead, I’ll wait… Isn’t it so fun! Ah it’s making me want to go sit for a few hours down in my craft room with my scissors and glue and a bunch of orange and black glitter!

Oh have I had baby on the brain… All I want to do is go and buy every single cute pice of baby clothing I lay my eyes on and then make a million headbands to match….. totally normal right? And these ones from The Sweeter Side of Mommyhood are so so cute!! I just can’t resist those little dresses, and sweaters, and shoes.. OH the shoes… I know they don’t even wear them for that long and they probably don’t even stay on for more than 10 minutes… but I want them ALL!

BasicGrey Christmas layout and a FREE cut file!

Whoa… it’s been a while since I’ve posted an actual scrapbooking page! I’ve been having a rough time with this pregnancy so I’ve been a little behind when it comes to my scrapbooking agenda. I’m really happy to be back at it and sharing this layout I created with the new BasicGrey line Evergreen!

Alexes Marie Brown I love being able to add die cuts to my layouts, so I created this circular 24 die cut for this Christmas Eve layout I made of my son. Alexes Marie Brown Alexes Marie Brown Aren’t those little acorns adorable?! By the way I’m totally loving on this color scheme. There’s the traditional reds, greens and creams, there’s a little teal and yellow thrown into the mix. What a fun and fresh way to document the holidays! Alexes Marie Brownand if your looking for the cut file, be sure to head on over to the BasicGrey blog for the download!!

 

Pretty Pinterest Picks

Hi there!! Can you believe I’m actually blogging? I’m not sure I can! It’s been way too long! Hopefully I can keep a better schedule in the future, but with our new baby due in less than three weeks, I’m not sure how that’s all going to work out! I’m grateful for those of you who have hung in there through this pregnancy of mine! I know I’ve been horrible at blogging, but I’m looking forward to a time when I’m not so tired and exhausted all. the. time.

So for now, I wanted to share a few of my recent favorite pins on Pinterest!

Alexes Marie Brown - Pretty Pinterest PicksSo I’m totally in nesting mode, and all I want to do is clean and decorate for the holidays!! That’s why I love this little diy banner that Allison made over at The Golden Sycamore. It looks super easy and I totally want to make one today! Then there’s that super awesome printable from A Fabulous Fete. I LOVE LOVE LOVE hand written art, and this little phrase makes me happy!

I’m totally going to put cute wallpaper in the backs of my shelves in my craft room…. that is whenever my husband decides to actually build them!! Oh My Dear Blog, totally knows what’s up!

I’m totally in love with non traditional color schemes for holidays, and that’s probably why I love those gold and white pumpkins from Thistlewood Farms, so so cute!

Arrington Family

Oh. My. Gosh. This family. the best ever… seriously. They were sooooo fun to photograph! I have never had so much fun with a session before! They were completely hilarious and I seriously couldn’t stop laughing the whole, entire time! I even have an extra folder with funny outtakes! Behold the Arrington Family and all their kids!!

Simper Wedding – Boise Idaho Photographer

About a month ago I had the exciting experience of taking my sister-in-law and my newest bother-in-laws wedding photos! I wanted to take some time and post some of my favorite images that were captured that day, but first I have to gush about these two little love birds for just a second. Anndreya is one of my husbands youngest sisters, and when I met her for the first time she was 13… being able to watch her grow up into a beautiful, kind and loving woman has been a joy! Brady and I lived with his parents for a few months while we were house hunting and I absolutely loved being able to spend time with this girl almost everyday! She is one of the sweetest, kindest people I have ever known and I have to be honest and say that she married one of the sweetest and kindest men I have ever known! Brian is basically summed up into one word. Amazing. He is completely selfless, unbelievably polite (meaning I honestly didn’t think anyone could ever be that polite, literally!) and a loving and caring person from the very first second I met him!  I cannot say how happy I am that these two ended up together! Perfect match in my book, and in any book for that matter!!

Here’s to an eternity of love and happiness Anndreya and Brian!!
