A couple more pages…

I was able to get some more scrapbooking in today!  Here is the next sketch copy that I did…  I was unable to copy it exactly as my photos were turned, but I love the idea and incorporated many of the elements… 

08032011245 I also did this one…


To view my inspirations from these layouts, please stop by Amy’s blog here.  And be sure to leave her a comment!




August Challenge…

This is a challenge for myself, but I would LOVE company!  I want to scrapbook one page a day (or a double page layout)…  I also want to try something that I have rarely done and that is to copy or use a sketch to follow.  A stamping friend shared this wonderful blog with me.  She mostly scrapbooks 4x6 pictures on 12x12 layouts.  I love the simplicity of this idea.  I will *try* to share one a day!  Please leave a comment letting me know what you think and also visit Amy’s blog as well. 


Here’s my first layout.


You can see the sketch here on Amy’s blog.  I did convert it to 12x12 as hers was done in 8 1/2 x 11 and added a picture, plus turned some of them.


Thanks Amy for such wonderful inspiration!

Yesterday I started scrapbooking again… it had been a while.  Costco is having their sale on 4x6 photos, so I printed up a bunch and dug in…

Here are the pictures…  08022011239


This is Trenton with his baby cousin (1st and only so far) Logan.  This will go in Trenton’s book.






This is Jaydon holding Logan.  This will go in Jaydon’s book.







This is the journaling I did,  I used the MDS for the type and then used my new alphabet stamp set for the “Logan” sign.  And attached brads in between.  Look for a new scrapbook page tomorrow!  I hope to post one a day for the month of August!  Also, will be using a wonderful blog to gather inspiration… more details on that tomorrow.  Please feel free to leave a comment below!  I love hearing from you guys…
