Brotherly Love Part 3

I have been busy. Here is some of my work.
This one is really simple. Yet it took me forever to do the border. The background paper is a simple brown with writings on it. The border is three different shapes from the Creative Memories border maker. It took forever to decide on the color and shapes. Then just layer them. Simple yet time consuming because I couldn't decide what I wanted.

This is also a very simple layout. The background papers and the same. Then I took a sheet of paper and just rippppped it. I just love how ripped paper looks and it is soooo satisfying to ripppppp!

This is a pre-designed set of pages and I just added a frame to one of the photos and a few 'ball' stckers.

Same thing here. A nice set of pre-designed pages with a few stickers. Looks very good right!

Pre-desgined pages with stickers... simple and fun.

yep. pre-designed page with a few stickers. getting it done!

I love my boys. Really enjoying making them a little scrapbook. I figure they will eventually want to do a share day at school. This will be a perfect thing to take!

Brotherly Love Part 2

These went so much faster than the last batch. I just love this scrapbook. Just my boys together! All these pages are from the winter wonderland set. I think I only added a few stickers. I am keeping it simple and getting it done.

Brotherly Love

Finally started working on my boys 8x8 scrapbook. I have been having a hard time with my scrapbook. Its just taking forever to decide. I think its because of the smaller size its making me feel a little lost. I think I spent an hour on each page! Yikes

Here is the cover... Looks simple but I stressed over it for ages! Awesome photo though. We were at my mom's house and both kids were fighting over piggy back rides. So my mom helped Connor get on top and snapped a photo!

The next layout has the same papers on both sides. The other side just has journaling so I decided to post that.
I think my little album is looking good. I am going to scrap right now so expect some more really soon!

Another Journaling Layout

As you know I have had a lot of journaling to do on my layouts. Its been hard to find a way to keep journaling and make new layouts. This layout though... turned amazing!

I know the background paper looks Christmasy but it was not intentional. I started with the red and green is just the best color to go with red. And considering this set of pages is right after my Christmas layouts I though it was fitting. Now this year is done scrapbooking and I can go on to the next. First though. I am doing the brothers scrapbook for my boys. See you soon

Christmas PreDesgined Pages

Here are a couple 'cheater' pages. This first one is a page I made at Diane's
Go check out her amazing work.

I figured out how to take square photos which work great for scrapbooking layouts. But wasn't able to figure out how to rotate them yet. This layout I purchased. Looks great! I probably won't do it again. I rather make them myself and spend less $$

This one is for you Paulette!

This post is all thanks to Paulette. She has helped me through some down times and shared my good times. She is a wonderful person. Paulette, I hope you like them. This first layout was actually copied from a friend of mine. You can find her here
She is a wonderfully talented lady. As you know I journal....a lot. So I made this and had no photos, just journaling. She also taught me to make my layout stretch just a little farther by using flip flaps.

Preschool Memories 3 of 3

I have finally finished Maverick's preschool scrapbook. Sure took longer than I though. I love it though.  Here are the last few pages.

What's next for me? I of course have two scrapbooks I am working on at the same time. One of them is the brothers 8x8 predesigned scrapbook. Then my normal chronological scrapbook. So I am going to do one amazing page with flip flaps for my regular scrapbook. Then I will be starting my 8x8 brothers book. See you soon...ish
