Between last Sunday and this past Friday I managed to bang out 5 layouts. I am very pleased with that since I really want to get back into my scrapbooking. If only there was more time to craft during the week (darn job is keeping me from crafting - lol). Here are the first 2 I started with:
You can clearly see that I used the same picture twice. That's because they are going into 2 different albums (one for each of my girls). The top one is a layout of my own design. The bottom one if a Midweek Mojo from Scrapbook Steals (Iolite #7). I used papers from To the Moon by Fancy Pants. I just thought they were fun and thought it might be nice to do something not so girly (in honor of my nephew who is surrounded by girls when all the cousins get together).
Then I did these 3 on Friday night:
For these, I used papers from some stacks I have (I will have to look them up) as well as papers I received in some swaps in the past (I do not know the makes off-hand). Oh well...at least I can tell you that these are based off of more Scrapbook Steals mojos: Iolite #6, #4 and #1. You can see I took some liberties with them, but they are what inspired each of these layouts. These were fun to do and I was excited to get them done :)
I am also going to try my hand at a Project Life kind of style this year. We'll see how that goes...
