"I'm So Escited!"

It's a new year and that means New Year's Resolution time. One very important resolution I made is to scrapbook more! In all reality I didn't get much chance to scrapbook in 2015, and I didn't take the thousands of pictures I usually do - maybe only 3,000 - not counting the 1,600 I took during our week at Disney. Believe it or not, that is way below my average. 

In the little time I did get to scrapbook I made this page. So far, it's the only picture I have scrapbooked of our week in Florida, courtesy of the organization Baking Memories 4 Kids. I can't wait to get going on that album - I have big plans for it! 

This photo was taken at Lego Land. We were waiting in line to ride the Dragon Roller Coaster (for the second time) and in characteristic Zach style, he could not be still. He kept saying over and over, "I'm so escited!" He turned to me, half jumped up on me, half hugged me and screamed again, "I'm so escited!"

I wanted to do a page just of this photo to always remember my Zach Attack as his love of roller coasters was born! I'm so glad my mom had the camera and was able to capture this sweet moment in time. 

Scrapbooking Tips

For the title of this layout I quoted Zachary. He's been in speech therapy for four years, but he still mispronounces words, and I find it adorable. I don't ever want to forget how he said things because as his therapy continues there are fewer words like this. So when I need to title a page I try, as much as possible, to incorporate these expressions.

Another go-to technique I use all the time is cutting apart seldom used letters to make an apostrophe. One of the biggest frustration with letter stickers is they never give you enough e's, a's or punctuation. I had already used all the apostrophes so I cut apart a "x" to make do. If I hadn't pointed it out, you would have never noticed, would you?
