Eyes Closed

I'm writing my first post on my new laptop, and I'm trying to figure out an entirely different operating system. If anything doesn't look right please let me know! Today I'd like to post two projects that share the same page protector. I love the pocket page scrapping style because it's easy to use scraps and the whole design goes very quickly.

The first layout features photos of Brandon at a sleepover with my Mom. He kept telling us that he wasn't sleepy and he wouldn't let me take his picture because he's a little stinker. 

On the back of the same protector, there are photos of my kids with their cousins. My Mom brought them up to our house for a sleepover, and Ronnie decided to bring them to the park. They were all so little, and I can't believe how fast they've all grown up. 

I used Crate Paper's Open Road collection to scrap these projects. I had too many embellishments left over to toss the paper scraps, and I'm glad I didn't. I love how I was able to utilize so many tiny leftover pieces.

Let's Go!

I'm still on a break from scrapping Disney photos because I'm a bit burnt out. I'm sure I'll get back to them soon, but in the mean time I'll share some other pages that I'm working on. I found these adorable pictures of Brandon shoved in a kit, so I decided to scrap them. When Brandon was little, he used to run outside to get in his little toy car when I would open the door to walk the dog in the morning. I love these photos of my tiny escapee outside in his pajamas.

I used Crate Paper's Open Road collection on this project. I know, I said I was finished with it, but I had so many embellishments left over that I had to figure out how to use the remaining scraps with lots of embellies. 

I also have a digital layout to share today. I'm still working on learning my way around the new software, but I'm getting there. This is a companion page to the last project I did about our Miracle League fishing trip. It features pictures of Jordan with my brother. I thought they looked so cute while they were chatting. I found out later that she was asking him if she could go for a swim since she was wearing a life jacket. Uh... no?

Once again, I used The Lily Pad's Ultimate Vacation kit. It's about time that I start using all of the digital supplies that I've accumulated. I'm looking forward to it.

I'm wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving filled with family and love. Have a great holiday!

Good Fortune

I took a break from scrapping Disney photos because I wanted to finish the Pink Paislee Hey Kid kit that I was using. I already scrapped all of the vacation pictures that matched it, so I grabbed a few black and white Instagrams that I had on my desk to create this project.

Jordan had major leg surgery over a year ago, and she got this fortune a day or two after she got home. It was perfect because she was just beginning to learn how to walk again. I had to take a picture and scrap it! I was inspired by Creative Scrappers sketch 217.

I also have a card to share today. I made it for a contest, but I didn't win so I get to share it here now. I used some scraps from Crate Paper's Close Knit line and a few die cuts from my Silhouette. (I love that thing!)

That's all for today. I'm gearing up for not one but TWO Thanksgiving celebrations, planning a major home renovation, and I'm homeschooling as usual. Is it any wonder that I have a laundry couch? Do you have a laundry couch? I can't be the only one.
