Ashley @ 4

Another new layout!  I'm so happy I was able to play in my craft room this weekend!!  I definitely didn't expect to since my husband was out of town.  But my in-laws called and wanted to take the kids to a family fun fair at the college where my mother-in-law works!  And they wanted to keep the kids overnight! I had the house to myself for almost 24 hours!!  I could have cleaned up around the house or did something similarly productive, but I decided to treat myself to some scrap time!  Here is one of the layouts I completed using  sketch #23 from My Scraps & More Sketches

I really love how it turned out, so I entered it into their challenge on their blog!
I hope you are having a great day! The sun is shining here, but it is chilly...I'm ready for spring to come already!

Sisters layout

So, I don't usually scrap pictures of myself (I know, it's a bad habit) but I love this picture of my sister and I.  I don't know why we both like it so well considering we were boating all day before we had the picture snapped...I guesss it's the tanned skin and the genuine smiles that only a day in the summer sun gives you!
I used a sketch from Page Maps and I really love how the page turned out!

I used paper from Heidi Grace's Sunshowers and Amy Tangerine's Sketchbook.
Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, long time, no post!

I can't believe I've neglected this blog for so long! Life with 3 kiddos really does keep me busy! I have managed to squeeze some scrapbooking time in, though, so I'll post some pages here today. 
 The papers above were mostly from a Paper Studio stack from HL, I'm not sure of the name though {my sister and I split it and I took the loose sheets and she has the actual stack.}  I liked it because it's mostly green, yellow and brown and most of my baby boy papers are blue. This adds some diversity, I think. See the bear strip? That is from Bella Blvd's baby boy pack.  I love how it matches that sleeper that I just LOVED in the bottom picture!
 I just love these pictures of lil' A. And I love, love, love that background paper {again from Bella Blvd} but I really had a hard time with this layout.  I'm not sure why.  But I'm happy with the way it came together in the end.  For the title, I printed "you've got the cutest little..." on white cardstock with my printer and cut "Baby face" with my cricut.
These pics are from 2007! Yikes--the baby in those pics just turned 6! I had made a layout with these pictures before and it was in K's album, but I hated it! Literally cringed everytime I came across it! I used a paper with bright pink and orange flowers for the background--trust me it was ugly! I'm not sure what I was thinking! One night, I was looking through her album and I just couldn't take it anymore...I literally dismantled the page right then and there! I should have taken a picture for a before and after, but I didn't think of it at the time! Anyway, I love this page now! All the pp are from Bella Blvd's baby girl line {which I bought recently when I bought the baby boy line, even though my "baby girls" pages are pretty much done! It was too cute to resist!}
Does anyone else "redo" pages? I admit I've done it before, but I try to scrap new pics rather than re-scrap old ones, but this one...I couldn't ignore any longer. Now it is one of my favorite pages in her book instead of an eyesore!
Until next time...which hopefully won't be too long...have a great day!
