My latest layouts

Here are a few pictures of the mini album from Aiden’s Birthday party last year. I was trying to keep it simple and repeated the design throughout.

I love how this turned out. This is my first time using the divided page to include extra pictures. Love my 3 ringed albums so I can do this. Now I’m so so afraid to tackle those holiday pictures. :)

This is just a fun layout I did for a challenge here.

Scrapping goodies

My LSS (local scrapbook store) had their garage sale last weekend. This is were crafters can rent table space to sell unwanted items and earn store credit. I did pretty good this year.
Everything that I came home with. Lots of unopened items!

This was all in one bag for $13. My highest priced item and best deal. I think there are only one or two stickers missing and everything in here would add up to way more then 13. Also it is very boy!
 I really love finding things that I want to try out but wouldn't ever pay full price for since I don't know how well I'll use or like it.

Other news on the crafting front...
I'm working on a mini album from Aiden's Birthday party last year. I'm very close to finishing it, yeah! Planning this years really help modivate me to get started. I hope to get some pictures up soon. I've also been working on some holiday layouts from this year and last year and will share one of those soon.

Twelve on the 12th

This is at least one of the monthly projects that I’m doing this year. All you do is take 12 pictures on the 12th of each month and put them on a layout. I might also do a monthly highlight layout each month digitally. Here are my 12 pictures.

A Great Anniversary

In the next couple of posts I’ll be doing a little catch up.

The beginning of this month I celebrated 12 wonderful years of marriage. We had a babysitter for the day but didn’t have much in the way of plans (not much was going on).
First off, Bill had this beautiful gift for me.

Then after dropping the boys off, we had a nice lunch at Carrabba’s.

We did some shopping (what a difference with/out the boys with) and hung out at home for a little bit before going to Perry’s Steakhouse for dinner. We both got the pork chop

  I Love you!
