Pay Attention!

Here's my layout for the 1-7-2010 Sketchy Thursdays Challenge!  I loved how this turned out!

I ALSO used prompt #5 at Point Blank Period.  I chose to speak about a decision I made for 2010 and that's to Pay Attention to my babies.  I mean, REALLY pay attention.  Hold them more, spend one-on-one time with them more and just shoot-the-breeze more!  I really need to make it a point to spend quality time with them...because I am reminded by MANY parents that time goes so fast and in a blink of an eye, you could miss it.  I don't want to miss too much!

I'm enjoying all these "resolutions" type prompts at all the challenge blogs!  I'm really trying hard to do different resolutions for different challenges!  For this particular layout, I used the Monstrosity line by Sassafras because I love to call my kids "MONSTERS"!  They're cute ones though!

Here's the journaling.  My kids are HUG FREAKS!  They love to hug and the point where I'm like "okay, time to do other things".  I know one day I'll miss it all soooo much.  Especially when that day comes when they will be too embarrassed to hug and kiss their Mommy.

I played with these cute turquoise shell buttons I got at the craft store.  I got a whole stinkin' package and I LOVE IT!!!!

I love this photo of Gabe taken on his birthday where he is chomping down on this HUGE lollipop!  I kept saying, "You better enjoy this kid!" because I let him eat as much of it as he wanted!
The other picture is a photo I took of Isabel during spirit week at her school.  This particular day was "western" day so we hunted around the house for items she could wear.  Luckily, I had this shirt that fit her and it went so well with the rest of her outfit!  She was so happy she got to dress up.  I felt bad because we missed a couple fun days like "crazy hair day" and "sports jersey day" which she really wanted to do...but....what can I say...I FORGOT!!!

This year I plan on doing LESS forgetting and MORE remembering!!!

There's still time to play along with the 2 prompts!!!  Check out the linky links and spend some crafty time with yourself!
