Another pictureless creation, and lots of wedding pics!

The power is restored, as is my sanity :) As I type, I am sitting in the library for Patryk's first storytime, we'll see how this goes. He is at the age where they take the kids away from the parents into another room, and it's the first time he's away from people that he knows, so I'm curious to see what he has to say about it afterwards.

Here are a couple of great shots from the wedding we attended on Saturday. I couldn't resist sharing pictures of the little handsome man with all of you. He was so cute in his little tux!!!

He made his way down the aisle and upon seeing the number of people watching him, he threw himself down on the ground and started to "worm" his way to the alter....literally. It was adorable (although hubby didn't think so!)
He spent most of the time playing with the fake rings he figured out how to detach from the ring bearer pillow :)
My handsome them!
There was a "candy shoppe" favor center, where the kids and other guests could help themselves to treats such as Pixie Sticks, Tootsie Rolls, lollipops, and these wonderful wax gum lips. Cool idea, and we ended up with sooo many goodies!
There was also a photo booth set up (the wall in the back...those frames are actually holes in the wall set up for people to stick their heads in.) Next to the booth was a bureau full of dress up goodies, here are the girls dressed up fantastically!
Lastly, Rileigh was the hit of the dance floor! She is such a funny little dancer, so animated and crazy. I have a LOT of great dancing shots...of course including dress up gear!
Ok, to the layout! I made this yesterday just because. I ran out of color ink in my printer (although I shouldn't have, I'll never buy another refurbished cartridge again!!!!!) so I turned to the drawer of memorabilia and found drawings from one of Rileigh's many notebooks. I save them all to go through when I'm ready, tearing out the best of the best. I know she'll love looking back at these pictures and stories when she's older :)

I pulled out the September Scraptastic Too Cool for School kit, full of Fancy Pants Off to School goodness. I used Cards and Favorite Teacher patterned papers and some adhesive chipboard. The October Afternoon mini market alpha stickers also came in the kit.

The foam Thickers here are great, love white on any color background.

My favorite way to include items that I know she'll want to pull out and look at: a pocket. I then make a slit in the page protector, letting the stuff hang out so that you can just pull it out and slide it back in when you are done. Easy peasy!
Hope you like it, stay tuned for ONE MORE POST later this afternoon :)
