First Ever Digital Scrapbook Pages

I have so much to blog about - Disney World, Peanut's birthday and birthday party, Easter egg hunts.  But instead I've decided to share my first ever digital scrapbook pages.  About a year ago one of my favorite bloggers posted about a digital scrapbook platform.  I messaged her about it yesterday and she graciously offered me hers (thanks a ton Kelly!)!  So last night I downloaded the software and began playing around with it.  I'm pretty pleased with my first ever digital pages - although I still plan to do 99% of my scrappin the old fashioned way - paper, embellishments and adhesive!


These pictures are from Peanut's birthday photos taken on her actual birthday.  Normally I call my daughter Peanut on my blog but for these layouts I wanted to use her beautiful first name. I love that the paper matches her shirt (in love!) and that the gray bow is similar to the one on her shirt.   


This is a picture from Disney World.  The first characters Peanut met were Chip and Dale and it was HER turn to be love.  She was obsessed with all of these larger than life furry characters.  From their costumes to their big noses and teeth. She wasn't the least bit scared and got upset when our turn was over. I love how sweet this photo is of Peanut trying to hold his hand. 

I downloaded a few free digital scrapbook kits to make these.  I love that there is such a large selection of FREE materials to use. I hope to work on Peanut's birthday photos and Disney World trip one day in the near future but I'm so far behind that I'll just stick with a few, easy, digital pages. :-)

Trendy Tot Tuesday Link Up

Wow!  That is all I can say for the last month. Wow!  Peanut's birthday has come and gone and I have a ton of photos and updates to go along with it, but for today I'm getting back into the swing of blogging by linking up with one of my favorite blogs over at Mrs In Training for Trendy Tot Tuesday!

Kelly's post today was in regards to her husband dressing her daughter and I thought it would be a great way to kick off my first Trendy Tot link up! 

My husband is actually pretty awesome at dressing Peanut.  One the days when he wants to really dress her up to take her out into the world he doesn't allow me to see her until he has her fully dressed.  These outfits usually include a really cute pair of shoes and headband that normally Peanut never wears. 


This is one of the first times the hubs really went all out into dressing Peanut up before we headed out.  I almost died when I saw how cute she was and I immediately set her up for a photo shoot.

 The hubs has come to terms very well with the fact that our first kid is a girl...but he still dresses her in a ton of sports clothes and outdoor appropriate outfits.  Her zoo outfits consists of her zoo tshirt and khaki cargo pants.  And below is when she is cheering on the Iowa State Cyclones.  That headband also matches her Redskins gear as well!

On of my favorite outfits that he picked out was from last summer.  We had some really cute photos from this winter but I unfortunately didn't grab any pictures. 

Peanut is pretty blessed that she can wear any color but I simply ADORE her in pink and green with her little white shorts.  We went shopping this past weekend for summer clothes that I can't wait to high light in a future link up! All in all I'd give my hubs a 9 out of 10 in the infant/toddler dressing game!
