This took forever....

I really hate it when a layout just takes forever. This was one of those. Sometimes they just go together so quick and easy, and sometimes my creative juices need a long time to work. I am happy with the end result though thank goodness. There is nothing worse than thinking you could have done better.

This is of my son sleeping at 4 months old. Journaling reads, "You were never a good sleeper, so seeing you sleep so sweetly took my breath away. I love you my sweet boy. xoxo"

This color combo was inspired by his nursery and bedding. Lots of brown, yellow, green, and blue.

Growing Our Family Year by Year

It is so rare that my family all gets together. We live in Utah, Georgia, Arizona, and Pennsylvania. So, to get all of my siblings together, with their kids and my parents was a special treat. It's amazing how the family keeps growing every year. This was a very special memory that I wanted to use some of my favorite papers. My Bella Blvd stuff was perfect. What do you think?

A Family is Forever

I didn't want to crop these photos too much for fear of cropping out the beautiful flowers in them. So, I came up with a solution. I think it works nicely.

I find that I like things a little off centered too. I had the b&w pp going down smack dab in the center and it seemed too boring, so I had to change it up. This is the end result.

These are pictures of my little family, and the place where we were married 8 1/2 years ago. Thanks for looking!!

Weekend Scrapping

Scrapbooking on the weekend can either be wonderful, or crazy. I've had both.

This weekend was kind of crazy. Hubby was in a bad mood, the kids woke up from naps in the middle of scrapping. Aaah. Such is life.

But, I managed to finish this one up, and am happy to have gotten one done over the weekend. Maybe I can sneak in some more tomorrow. Thanks for looking!

This involves some:
Echo Park-A Walk in the Park
Love Elsie-Roxie
Non-Alpha Stickers-Stampin Up

Picking a Title

Sometimes I have a hard time picking a title for a layout. This was one of those times. But, my kids look extra squeezable in this I chose that. :)

Making Fabric Flowers

For a tutorial on how to make the cute fabric flowers on the headband you see in my sidebar, go here.

They will make a great addition to any scrapbook page too!

Sleepy But Happy Boy

I'm trying to learn how to do boy layouts. They are so hard for me after scrapping for a girl for years. But, I am super happy with how this one turned out. Go here to see some of the products I used.

Kissed By A Butterfly

Do you ever have those pages that when you think you know what you are going to do, they go in an entirely different direction?

Then, you're not sure if you like it all that much?

Well, this is one of those. It's growing on me though.

My Header

I scrapped my header and took a picture of it. What do you think? Do you want one?

I could scrap one for you for $10, and send you a digital pic. Just a thought....
