When I scrapbook, I basically just scrap the pictures that move me. I don't follow any sort of order. As a matter of fact the following pictures in this layout are from winter 2011. I love these pictures,they showcase the fun that my dd has with her cousins. We are so blessed that they all get along so well! I love capturing a true sense of their relationship, the memories and feelings.Three Amigos layout I used scraps from another project plus a little washi tape to pull it all together. The letter stickers are Sassafrass and I am unsure of the chipboard. I love using odds and ends to put a layout together! So satisfying!

I have really been on a roll lately. I love it when Mr. Mojo is visiting!
I am a relatively simple scrapper but I do enjoy a little bit of layering. Here is a close up, I love those brads! A brad is such a simple way to add a little impact and visual interest.

Yep, still plowing through my most recent purchases and still loving those paper pads. Used Awesome Boy by Recollections for the two layouts today. Love how versatile it is!!

Still working with my new stacks and probably will be for awhile! LOL That is one of the problems with having a Micheal's right next door to your work. I can "pop" over there almost everyday. I often visit a stack several times before I decide to purchase it. I have soooo much patterned paper that I try to be more mindful before I bring any new product home. Sometimes though, a stack just calls to me and I simply can't pass it up. This is the case with the Heidi Swapp stack Suagr Chic. This one was an impulse buy. I saw it and I just had to have it. I logically deduced that my daughter would love it as well therefor it was a "must have". (It really doesn't take too terribly much to talk me into buying new scrap stuff)"The Best Kind of Beautiful" I used Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic, cork from Little Yellow Bicycle, flower Recollections, sticker banner Sassafras and letter stickers are American Crafts. I love the colors in this layout. I will be using this stack a lot! Love it!
I tend to focus on the kids more often than the adults and I am trying to change that. Part of the problem is that I just have so many pictures of the kids. I really need to try and take more well rounded photos! LOL
Have a lovely day.

Despite the fact that I have enough scrapbook supplies to fill a scrapbook room, I still can't resist the allure of the patterned paper stack. They are just such a great deal and I am loving the new lines. In the last week I have purchased 5 paper packs from Micheals! I have a sickness I tell ya. I was so inspired by the new papers that I created a few new layouts today.
2 generations was made using Awesome Boy by Recollections. This layout came together very quickly. The alphabet letters are Thickers by American Crafts and the cork is Yellow Bicycle. I have a couple more layouts to add tomorrow and maybe one of these days I will make a sizable dent in my rather large stack of paper pads!

One of the things that we really love about our house is a rather large mud/laundry room. Up until recently however it was not my favorite place to spend time. The walls were red and brown and quite dingy. Thankfully my dad stepped in and built me this unit. I am over the moon with how it turned out. We also painted the walls (as you can see, we are still in the process of painting the trim as evident by the painters tape) Thankfully I had most everything at home already so I only had to go out and purchase 3 baskets!
All in all, this house is a process...much like everything else in my life!
