Love My Cricut!!!

This first layout was made at my consultants house. Lovely! 
Lovely butterfly cutout was made on the cricut.
This next layout I made myself. Really simple layout. The cricut piece just makes this layout. I just cut it into four pieces and glued them to make it look like it was bigger.

What A Hoot!

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! 
This last layout input together. It's kind of plain but the creative memories kit this came with didn't have much for me to work with. I also didn't want to get my cricut out. Ah well. It's done. 
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!

Do You Cut Your Pictures?

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. ;)
At my scrapbooking club we often make layouts that are a little more girly. This one is more neutral colored. It has lovely flowers. Great choice for photos of my mom and myself with the boys.

Love This!

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 next one is kind of plain but it has a flip flap for a hidden story and picture.
This next two layouts are from the same set of papers. Made at my friend Diane's home. She is my close to my heart consultant. 
This second layout also has a flip flap. It's really cute paper and boys make these layouts super cute! 
See you soon!

Brotherly Love Part 5

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!
This one is fun. A friend gave me these leaves. They almost look like they are made out of wood. Very thin wood. I just love how they look!
The end.

Brotherly love part 4

I finished these layouts months ago. Really though I had posted them but realized that I hadn't. Here are some more. 

Last but definitely not least. A layout about shoes. Seriously! I loved the button borders. It's a simple layout but cute. Love how my boys take care of each other.
