Friday Flashback Again

So sorry I missed posting a flashback last week, it was just a busy day! I decided today that I'd post two previously published layouts to make up for it though! :)

First up is one from the June 2010 issue of Scrapbook Trends featuring one of my favorite lines from Sassafras Lass, Monstrosity.

Today You Were A Little Monster
The photo is from awhile back of Spencer telling me "no-no!" It seeded to fit this page well.

Journaling Reads: Today, well actually, for the past few weeks you have been quite a handful Spencer; getting into everything, breaking things, spilling things, taking off your diaper and having accidents, etc. Today was just the day that you decorated the carpet in my craft room in lovely multi-colored ink blots. But really that is nothing, in fact I'm smiling about it. I mean it just adds to the huge silver paint and walnut ink stain you left on that carpet about 2 weeks ago. Never mind that you striped all my ink pads off their bases and tore them apart, never mind that you ruined 2 sets of clothes, never mind that your hands may be permanently stained to look make you look like a Picasso. At least we have a permanent reminder of your exploration into art. Groan. Well, it's a good thing you are so cute Spencer, it has saved you from a lot of trouble during your "monster moments" lately! --December 2009"

 And another one featuring Spencer from the April 2010 Scrapbook Trends. The papers here are by Cosmo Cricket and the embellishments/letters are by Queen and Company. I love that I got 9 birthday photos on this rather simple page!

The Journaling reads: "We were in Lubbock for your 2nd birthday Spencer, and you got to spend the day with lots of family. You loved playing with your cousins, eating cake and ice cream, and of course playing with all your new toys (which included a lot of little people). I enjoyed watching you have so much fun, yet I also saw just how much you have grown. You have truly left the baby behind and become a very cute little boy. December 2009"

And as a side note, Pebbles has a give away on their blog today for the Mr. and Mrs. line. Be sure and stop over at their blog and leave a comment for a chance to win it!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone--and don't forget to comment on the post below for a chance at my Queen and Company giveaway!
