Some more lovely layouts. Great stories in these two pages. I really enjoy "looking back" as I do my layouts. Would love to be caugh up in my scrapbooking but that won't happen any time soon.

Now that I am not making cards for the fundraiser I was involved with I have more time to scrapbook. I am mostly using layouts I had made previously with my consultant Diane. She is amazingly talented. These two layouts were made with her assistance. Yeah I pretty min copied them!
I love using these great layouts. I just get so much done! I already put in the work now I get to use them and make a great scrapbook!

I don't normally cut my photos. I crop them but only into square or rectangular shapes. I have cut them into circles or other shapes but they are few and far between. This one layout I cut the first one because I had a duplicate and was wondering if it would work. It did kind of look nice so I cut the other one. Not a good idea. I ended up cutting his smile and the layout isn't as good. Of course I am still keeping it. My scrapbooks are kind of like gifts to my boys. When they are older they will have many scrapbooks of their family. Not just photos in a computer. Memories preserved. Handwritten notes of their lives. I enjoy making them. It is stress reliever and peaceful, most of the time. ;)
Let's start off with a fantastic layout I stole from Pinterest. I love Pinterest! It is addictive though so I try not to go unless I have a specific need.
This second layout also has a flip flap. It's really cute paper and boys make these layouts super cute!

This finishes my 8x8 scrapbook. Really enjoyed working on smaller pages. Honestly though I would get more photos in these pages so I am going to have to make another one soon. This one covered the first two years my boys had together. Need another two to cover the next three years! Not going to do that for a while though. Maybe a year. I have lots of other scrapping to get done. Lots other goals before I do the next brotherly love scrapbook. Hope you enjoyed it!
I finished these layouts months ago. Really though I had posted them but realized that I hadn't. Here are some more.
