My grand babies....

Saturday 29 November 2008

It seems as if I have a grandchild over every weekend, not that I am complaining....I love to have the little ones here and enjoy every moment with them. Little Lukas has been here all day and is sleeping now. (So is Grandpa...I just might let him do the pajama drill tonight). Last Saturday I had Leané for the day and I took some (read hundreds) photos during her time here. During this weekend I made this layout of some of the photos I took. I used some Paper Crate Mia and Prudence papers and all the flowers were part of a prize I won on KJ's blog...trying to make a dent in my stash.

I found this beautiful poem by Karen Barnes.

Little Girls
Little girls are made of daisies and butterflies and soft kitty cat purrs
And all the precious memories of times that once were.
Little girls are made of angel's wings and giggles and a firefly's glow
And all the happy feelings, deep inside, that we all know.
Little girls are made of cinnamon and bubbles and fancy white pearls
And snowflakes and rainbows and ballerina twirls.
Little girls are made of sunshine and cupcakes and fresh morning dew,
And these are the reasons, little one, why I love you.

I just had to complete a layout of Lukas as well this weekend. I took some of these photos yesterday. He slept over last night and was awake every hour....I am absolutely exhausted. This morning at 7 o'clock when we eventually decided we are not getting any more sleep, we picked him up out of his cot and he greeted us the biggest dimply smile ever...and Ouma and Oupa was totally lost...even the lack of sleep was forgiven ...

The Cosmo Cricket Cogsmo range was perfect for these photos and I took ages cutting out all the little cogs...and then only a short poem and a few brads was needed...perfect! Don't you think he has the most beautiful eyes? This is the poem I used...the author is unknown.

Little Boys are Treasures

Little boys are treasures
Who are worth their weight in gold.
And charm everyone around them
From the time they're minutes old.
They're Mommy's little darling,
They're a special pal to Dad,
And they bring the very happiest days
A family's ever had.
