Now that things are starting to settle down after the silly season, I am finally finding some time to do some stamping etc and of course wanting to do something with all the gorgeous photos of my gorgeous little family which I have taken over the past few weeks :) So some scrapbooking has been the order of the day, and what better way to start than with my lovely Jamie’s 3rd birthday photos. He just loves having his photo taken, and is often making funny faces in the photos so sometimes it is a challenge to get a “normal” face. I often find myself sneaking up on him, camera in hand, trying to take him by surprise so that he doesn’t have time to form a cheeky face, but I rarely succeed! And “smiling” involves crinkling up his nose and closing his eyes tight so telling him to smile doesn’t exactly work either. But…. on his birthday, he was so busy having fun that he forgot all about the camera, and here is the end result. Such a cute boy! :) I have yet to add the journaling but would rather not share that side of some of my scrap pages. I had a lot of fun creating this page, and used heaps of different Stampin’ Up! products.

Jamie wasn’t really sure what all the fuss was about leading up to his birthday, he was just really interested in getting more presents. And when I told him he would have a birthday cake, he said he wanted to help make our chocolate cake that we buy from Aldi. He loves to help me with the cooking. Easiest birthday cake ever!
