Alphabitty Moments - the letter O

Welcome to Alphabitty Moments! For the past few months I've been recording some of the little things that my kids do in the form of an Alphabet Book. A great group of women have joined me in this project and I've been remiss in thanking them for sharing their creativity in page design and the inspiration for words each week. Thanks gals!

We're over half way through our first book and until now, I've had either a joint page (word that fit both my children or two layouts (one for each kid). I had a couple of ideas for Julia's page, but they didn't come together in time. The nice thing is that we'll be going through the Alphabet again so I'll get Julia's page in the next go round.

This week for Sam's pages I chose to use a picture I took at our local arboretum on this fateful day. For anyone out there who is ever having trouble finding a picture that is an exact match for a word, this is a way to solve that problem...

Use a cute picture of what your child(ren) look like these days and add the appropriate text. I know that when I look at this layout I will be transported back in time to when my 4 1/2 year old wanted to watch the same movie OVER & OVER again, "play pretend meat dinosaurs in the hallway with Daddy" OVER & OVER again, read the same Eyewitness Kids books about Sharks, Dinosaurs, Whales, Birds, Cats, & Dogs OVER & OVER again etc...

Now it's your turn....Post* your favorite Alphabitty Moment and then come back and add your name to the Mr. Linky.

*Scrapbook/Bookmaking software not required! BUT if you are interested in using the software that I use for this project and the 25 other projects I'm working on, go to and download the newest version of Booksmart. They've just released 2.0 and I kid you not, it increases my productivity a TON! We can now adjust the container sizes and add text/photo boxes pretty much wherever we want. Blurb isn't paying me to say this, but I truly believe this is the best bookmaking software out there!
