These are older photos from 2003. I was visiting my mom who in this photo is acting silly and my little sister. Neat to look back. I was 4 months preg. with our twins.


I haven't been scrapping too much since the school year started but I did manage to squeeze one out today. This one is of my little guy who had a serious mouth injury. I used Mary Fran's Ouchie collection from Nitwit Colections. The bubble alpha is by Darcy Baldwin and the template is by Elizabeth.
I did this one of Jackson a couple weeks ago. I used Dani Mogstad's Tough Guy Kit and the template is from her blog challenge.

I recently had my negatives scanned by the ScanCafe b/c I wanted digitals of the boys when there were babies. I didn't have a digital camera for the first 7 months after they were born so having the negs scanned was something I have wanted to do for a while. (Plus I really wanted to try ScanCafe) I'm so happy to have them back in my possession along w/ a couple DVDS of their pictures! I'm having a lot of fun scrapping them and walking down memory lane!

So I told myself a while back I would start scrapping in order from the past forward since I'm so incredibly behind but I don't know if I can completely stick to that decision.. Breaking my own rule I dug up these pictures from last summer when we went to the state fair with my family. I couldn't resit using this cute kit by Jaque Larsen and Dani Mogstad (Funland). I know I created quite a few layouts with this kit but I didn't feel like cramming it all into one or two.... hey it's my scrapbook right? lol

This one is of my nephew and my sister! I wanted to do a special layout just for him. I also did this for the Tumble Challenge on Dani Mogstad's blog which is to scraplift a selected CT for the month. (4noisyboys) I lifted "The Graduate"
This one I did for the Girl Talk template Challenge.

splish splash

Big sigh, deep breath.... I wish I was as creative as some of the other ladies in the scrapbooking world. I have been admiring all these whimsical, artistic, extractions everywhere, dreamy, magical layouts and I just can't seem to figure them out! I know artistry comes from within... I'm not sure it can be taught so perhaps I'll have to settle just doing what I know how to do. For all of you out there who produce these amazing layouts like you Bec., you are truly admired. Someday I simply hope to master an extraction!

In today's layout I used a selection of times from two kits found at the Shabby Pickle (Faith True's Powder Room) and Pickleberry Pop (Jofia Devoe's It's Bathtime).

A couple of projects

Since the boys have been in summer school I've been trying to get a little scrapping done here and there. My little guy is still home so I am getting more quality time with him too! Here are a couple of my most recent projects...

First a 2 pager using Yin's two page template #79, elements by Kate Hadifeld's Vehicle Doodles and Vehicle Doodle Extras, Over Drive elements by Kate Hadfield and Jaque Larsen, papers are from the "Douglas" kit by Melissa Bennett.

Here are the two pages together.
Here are the individual pages.
Finally I have a simple little layout of some artwork that my twins completed in preschool. I used pieces from "First Bell" by Lauren Grier and Amanda Heimann. Glitter by Monika69

First Haircut

I didn't have any haircut kind of elements or kits so I just went w/ a kit that I love! It's bright and vibrant! Right after their first haircut we took them to get their pictures taken and Logan fell into one of the props and busted open his head. It was also the first major (well major to me) accident that one of my kids had. I think I cried b/c I felt so bad for my baby.

All Smiles

I'm thinking I am done w/ all 2004 layouts from my digi pictures. One of these days I will get my negs scanned and to the first 6 months of their lives! Time to start looking ahead to those 2005 photos.... Wow, just writing that down and saying it out loud makes my tummy hurt that I'm really that far behind. That's the story of my life though.
