Birthday Layouts!

Riley's Birthday!



Hunter's Birthday!


I always get overwhelmed when it comes time to scrap the boys' birthdays. I take lots of pics and in the past(paper scrapping days) I've done many layouts for each birthday. What usually happens is I end up not even scrapping them at all. After reading the last part of this article, I challenged myself last weekend to scrap each of the boys' birthdays on one 2-page spread. I found a layout that I thought would work, flipped it horizontally for the opposing page and chose enough photos to describe the event. Since both of their birthdays fell on a weekday and their parties were on a weekend, I kept each day on it's own page. It was a bit challenging but hey, I actually scrapped both birthdays in the same year they occurred. Now to go back and do previous years...
