Been scrapping some

I got two layouts done last weekend and three this weekend. I'm taking a class from Janna Wilson and she showed a technique this week on different sized strips of paper. She only showed the technique with 12 x 12 pages, so I tried to resize the strips to fit 8 1/2 x 11. Not sure they look as good, but hey, I got three layouts done!

For this one from last weekend, I used a sketch shared by Bring Your Own Memories at Willow Traders for their anniversary. The paper and embellies are from The Scrap Room's March kit. It is the MM Noteworthy line.

This one just kinda came together. I used a kit for this one. Thought it was Scrapbook Sussies but I can't find it on their site, so maybe I'm crazy. Anyway I'm pretty sure it is the Basic Grey Phoebe line with some MM letters, but who knows.... It is an older photo of Bubby from when his primary means of getting from Point A to Point B was via a walker. Now he uses a different type of walker to get around.

These three are all using that Janna Wilson technique.

These are the pics I took Easter Sunday. I usually like to set up some fabric as a backdrop or take the kids outside for Easter pics, but I wasn't in much of a holiday mood, so I just sat them on the coffee table in the living room and took a few pics. They're not near professional, but the kids are cute, so who cares! I used the Scrapbook Sussies January 2008 kit and the Scrap Room March kit for this one. I love this SEI Ally's Wonderland paper and so I used it for both the Easter layout and the Cinderella one.

These are pics I took on St. Patty's Day. I like that these three layouts all use that same technique but I don't look at them and think "boy they look a like". This layout uses The Scrap Room's April kit and the American Crafts Kids line. I used the four asterisks as a four-leaf clover because you just doing seem to see a lot of St. Patty's Day embellies.

And I finally got one of the kids' Disney albums uploaded. Reminded me how many characters I still need to get pages done for. I did pages ahead of time for the characters that I'd expected to see at the character meals we'd books. But I didn't want to waste time and paper for characters that I wasn't sure we'd see. So I still have pages to do for Mary Poppins, Lilo & Stitch, Jo Jo and Goliath, Sully, Buzz, Woody, Bullseye, Aladdin, Rafiki, Jiminy Cricket, Pocahontas, King Louie & Baloo, and Remy & Emile. But of course I can't find the Heidi Swapp 6 x 6 page protectors ANYWHERE and so I have no idea how I'm going to add these pages to the book!

Jimmy has softball practice today and the kids and I are going to hang out at my mom's while he plays. Usually we'd go to practice too, but I think it is still too cold and honestly, I'm not loving the idea of him playing this year. He's hurt his back the past few years and I'm just afraid it is going to happen again.

I can't believe that tomorrow is Monday already. Why do the weekends go so fast???

Days 'til Disney Ticker
