Some of you that have been following the blog for awhile, will probably note that one constant theme of my scrapbook layouts (besides my white gel pen) is that I am always talking about how far behind I am with my scrapbooks. Well...I have a new plan. I am going to scrap current pictures as quickly as possible and then go back and only scrap pictures that I love or that are from special occasions. I will still include lots of pictures in the scrapbooks, but instead of creating layouts for each and every one, I am going to use some of the "hybrid" pages from WR Memory Keepers. Once I actually get started on those kinds of "layouts," I will share a few with you. I'm hoping that this is the year that I get caught up!
This layout is for my daughter's 3rd birthday, which was just a few weeks ago.
Those are the first pictures that I've taken from 2011, so currently this year's scrapbook is up-to-date. Woohoo! (You have to celebrate the little things.) I tried to film a video for this layout and it just didn't turn out. I was kind of sick and so I kept making silly mistakes. Before I was done filming the entire thing, my camera's battery ran out, so I threw in the towel.
I tried something new for my journaling tags. I cut out tags from Birthday Bash and added a very handy journaling sticker from EAD Designs's Journaling Card Stickerz. (I don't know about you, but I have the hardest time writing in straight lines on my scrapbook pages.) To create the pocket for the tag I just marked an outline of the tag on the back of the photo mat & then made sure not to tape over where I wanted the tag to go.
I hope you will stop by tomorrow to check out the EAD Designs' Monthly Color Challenge!
