My latest scrapbooking layouts.....

So, I did a few layouts....

I'm working in Jensen's album, trying to get caught up. These are all from Fall of 2003.

This is the double-page spread. I wanted to use the Spongebob Paper, but I didn't want the layout to be a slave to it! I think it works!!

Here are the closeups of each page....

The "J" is new Sandylion. Have you seen these, they come in sheets of about 7 monograms. They are super-cute!

The journaling is done on my QuicKutz Silhouette, as weel as the stars!

The little girl with the pink bow is named Gentry. She was a doll! She was Jensen's first "girlfriend."

When asked why he liked her, Jensen said, "She has good hair!"
And, she does!!

This is a pocket-page holding his birthday cards and the gift list. I know it's kinda boring...
but again, I'm trying to get caught up!

And, yes, the bottom of it is not holding.... I used that Wacky-Tac stuff and I HATE IT! I'm out of my Pioneer Photo Tape that I love and that makes me in a BAD MOOD!!! So, I have to re-do that part.....great. It's still cute...

This is Jensen's 5th birthday picture....

...The "5" is a chipboard 5 which I covered w/ the turquoise card stock and then covered w/ Stickles. Turquoise on the top and Black on the edges. I think it turned out pretty good!

I think this one is super cute!

I used some rub-ons that Sherry and I got at JoAnn's on clearance for the lettering. The Brothers is from an Art Warehouse rub-on set I bought from Amber at the last garage sale at Savannah Scrapbooking. Glad I had it, it was perfect. Perfect example of how one person's trash is another person's treasure! I had been dying to use it!

I used buttons from my box....I have lots of buttons, but I don't use them very
often. I don't know why...I just don't. I like how they look here.

This is the first of 2 pumpkin patch layouts I have to do for this time-period. This is when I took the kids...a tradition we do every year.

The plaid base paper is another example of raiding the stash from 1982. (comment for you, Kerry, since you thought it was funny last time!) The diamond paper came in a paper pack I got for $2 at JoAnn's on clearance. It's CK paper. I made Sherry buy it because it was like 30 sheets of paper for $2. I never knew if we'd actually use it, but it was perfect for this layout. The other paper was a Karen Foster Pumpkin paper that was meant just to plaster your pic onto it. I hate that.
So, I cut that sucker up... out now...but they work here. Letters cut on the Silhouette. And the rub-on is new...I think it's Fancy Pants! So cute!

Have you been scrappin' lately?

You and I have a very similar style when it comes to scrapbooking ~ very linear! I love straight lines, photos lined up nicely, keep it simple but fun, etc.

I'll be putting some of my work on my blog via Flickr or something similar one of these days.

Your LO's always look gorgeous, I'm so jealous! I haven't scrapped in probably at least 6 months. I've done other items like altered tins and cards, but no scrapbooking. maybe on my holidays I'll get some done, that would be nice! LOL
