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...

Halloween Kit Freebie!

Sample Layouts!

Just when I thought I would never be in the mood to create another kit, my brother e-mailed me a few drawings he created in ArtRage (If you want to see more of his artwork, visit his Gallery)! My SIL and I thought they would make great elements for scrapbooking. One thing led to another and he went on a roll creating all these adorable hand-drawn doodles this week. Of course I couldn't resist making this darn cute kit! The best part is that it's yours for the taking so go forth and scrap. In return, My brother and I would love to see what you do with it so please send your layouts :) Not all elements are shown in the preview. Personal Use only.

Spring Planting Layout!

A fun layout of the boys planting some seeds for the garden last spring. I just LOVE Kate Hadfield's hand drawn doodles and they are on sale at the Lily Pad right now so I grabbed a few but think I will go grab more today!
