Eek Layout

I'm still super behind on my scrapbooking but catching up.  These are actual 2014 pictures.  LOL.  I did 2013 not long ago.  Ha ha.  2015 to come.  Love these little files.  The title and fence came from Miss Kate's cuttables I believe.....and the little grim I can't remember!   He's actually a left over cut from a turning 50 project that I made and just hadn't used.  He's perfect for these pages though.  Sorry I can't remember where he came from but he's cute isn't he!  LOL.  As my kids get older, I find that Halloween is a lot simpler than it used to be.  A church trunk-or-treat, a pumpkin pizza, and movies at home.  I actually like not having to RUSH to both sets of Grandma's, both Great Grandma's, back to grab hubby, try to find some food and still trying to get the Trick-or-Treating done for the kids.  It was exhausting and I didn't even realize how much until this year when it was much more relaxing.  Don't get me wrong, it was fun and I'd do it all over again while they were little, but I'm also not sorry that it has now changed either!  Is that ok to say????

1st Day of School - Project Life Layout

Here's another layout that I was able to finish.  I modified the title to match my little bookworms which are Miss Kate's Cuttables files.  Love them.  They turned out so cute.  I'm loving that I've been able to get many of these older pictures taken care of and in albums.  I've been looking at them for way to long!  LOL.  Simple but effective.  If you look close, I have journaled on my photos.  I love that because then even if it's been a while since I developed them, some of the details of the events are saved.  I need to remember to do that all the time!  Love it when I do it especially when it's been a while since they were taken.  

Happy Birthday Dog Easel Cards

For my retreat, we were to make a card to exchange.  These are the  cards I came up with.  The images are from My Scrap Chick.  Hope they like them!  

My Family Layout

They grow so fast.  These pictures were taken a couple years ago and my son has grown probably 6 inches and lost 20 lbs.  He looks totally different.  It was a fun day to hang out at the train station and get their photos though.  So glad that I will have these memories to cherish forever!  Love my family!

Back to School Layout

  I just love these little guys!  Here is a back to school layout using Little Scraps of Heaven files.  I just love these little turtles and worm.  So much fun.  Some pages turn out better than others.  I really like this one.  Maybe because that turtle is turning into another of my favorite ever cut files.  He just makes me smile!  Hope you enjoy it too!  I developed my photos in different sizes than 4x6 this time and I didn't collage them.  Love it when I try something new and the end result turns out great!

St. Patrick's Day Layout

This was so much fun.  If you look at the photos, I decorated my table with all kinds of St. Patty's Day decorations and made green dinner etc. for my family.  The fun thing is that the same decorations are now on my scrapbook page.  Two birds with one stone as the saying goes.  LOL.  Makes for a fun dinner and a quick scrapbook page to remember it by.  Gotta love that!  These cute little files were from Designs on Cloud 9.  Sadly, she is no longer in business but I had these little cuties so I pulled them out and put them to use.

Sundae Treat Box

I am going to a scrapbook retreat in about a month and we do a secret sister exchange.  I decided I'd better get started because I have a lot coming up in the next month also.  So I decided to take one of the caddy essentials boxes from a collection from My Scrap Chick and make this cute little box.  The I used a cute sundae file from KaDoodle Bug Designs to make the cute little sundae.  I think it turned out cute.  I'm going to make a card and also one of those Sundae's made with a cup, loofa, and straw to go with it.  Maybe some chocolates to go in the box.  This lady is new to our group so I've never met her before.  Here's to hoping she likes it!  Here's a couple challenges to enter it into also.
