Scrapbook Layout – Bowling

For our 4th of July this year, we spent some time playing Wii bowling, which then inspired us to go play some “real” bowling. It was Adrianna’s 1st time to go bowling, and she enjoyed it very much.

Scrapbook Layout – Lots of Tireds

Adrianna, like many children, often falls asleep in the car. Usually this occurs just minutes after several adamant replies to us that she is NOT TIRED.

On one occasion, I picked Adrianna up from childcare right after she awoke from her afternoon nap. Janette and I were praising her for the great nap she had just taken (she doesn’t always take a nap due to our later schedule than what the other kids are on). Adrianna agreed, and said, “Yeah, I was very having lots of tireds!”

Scrapbook Layout – 5 Strand Braid

I made this layout tonight as a part of the speed scrap at GDS. For a speed scrap, you receive a set of instrx to follow over the course of an hour and and then you have to complete a layout within a short amount of time, usually the hour following. It is fun and forces me to make a layout different from my normal style. 🙂

Credits: The curly ribbon and ribbon frames were created by Creative Dreams. The star and the ric-rac were created by me.

The journaling reads:

I decided to get my hair braided at the Colorado renaissance festival. I absolutely love to have people play with my hair, so it was pure bliss. I was charged $10 more than most people due to my waist length hair, but it was so worth it! And YES, that is all MY hair!

Scrapbook Layouts

I actually finished two scrapbook layouts tonight – hooray! These are both from early this summer.

Multi-Photo Challenge at GDS

Hi everyone,

I am hosting my first challenge at GDS, so I decided to it something that you all know I am passionate about when it comes to scrapbooking: Layouts that contain multiple photos.

I am a picture-aholic and rarely have just one or two photos that I want to scrap for an event. That said, I think a lot of people have a hard time making a layout that contains more than two or three photos. So, to help you out, I do have a free multi-photo template you can use if you desire. But it isn’t required to use it for this challenge; you can use any template or make your own layout freehand. You all probably have an arsenal of my multi-photo templates I have offered over this past year that you could use for this challenge. 😉

Requirements for this challenge:

  • Layout must contain 4 or more photos on a single page
  • Post a link to your layout the GDS thread so I know you completed the challenge
  • That’s it!

If you complete this challenge and post your layout by December 31st, I will send you another template to play with.

Free Template (found at GDS Challenge thread through December 31, 2008):

Template you can receive just for playing:

Hope to see you there!

Water Girl – Scrapbook Layout

This was made with my latest kit, Christmas Snow. Although the layout itself is of a summertime picture. 🙂

The journaling reads:

One of your favorite things to do is play with water. We can give you a squirt bottle and a couple of cups, and you are content for long periods of time to simply spray and transfer water amongst them or to make us wonderful treats to “eat”.
