my first layout after dumping all my stickers into 1 box. January bonus challenge (use clusters on every layout this month)and you may notice I've used these pics just a day or so ago...this family has 4 of my grandsons and everyone has their own book, so I do a lot of the same pictures...none are just alike, though.
Love that you are scrapping the photos your dd sends you from college, Linda. That "Adulting" title is cool. Love the colours on your Cornell Fine Arts pages, but can't see them closely enough to appreciate the details.
And, elaynef, what love and work it takes to create all those pages for your grandkids. I love these photos, and the fun they represent, and your use of red and blue really make them pop!
Points: two pages created and shared (4). Both fit the January stash challenge (specialty paper and doilies) (2). #2 I am claiming for "Bundled Up" title (7th day) and hot beverage (6th day) (2). #3 rectangular photos (2). #4 square pages (2). #6 new TCW stencil (1). #8 generations (1). #10 ribbons (2). #24 dies (2). #46 pop ups (2). #51 mixed media (1). #52 snowflakes (1). #53 red (2). #57 bow (1). Total: 25
another college album layout - this time from the weekly Knightfire group meeting (some sort of Catholic study group I gather) - based (very) loosely on Sketchy Saturday Nov 10th (and please ignore the fact I can NOT seem to photograph layouts)
"Knightfire" (8.5x11) = 1 (layout) + 1 (sharing) + 1 (#3rectangles) + 1 (#7 grateful for DD and photos from college) + 1 (#22 scraps) + 1 (#24 circle and dragonfly punches) + 1 (#32 ketchup 10 Nov sketchy Sat) + 1 (#43 don't fall behind) + 1 (#46 pop dots) =9pts
thought you all would like to see my latest attempt at organization. I got this cd holder from Goodwill for $10 before Christmas thinking I would display some nativities in it. Yesterday, I tried it on top of my scrapbook table. I really like it. I have more room on the table now because there was some big trays there before. I'll show you later my room since I dumped all my stickers in one box. It's not good, ladies.
Left you love in the Gallery, LisaDV. Great job doing all those pages while on the road!
And Linda, you have been busy, too. Loving how each page or set of pages has a different colour palette. I like that you are working your way through the sketches and adding little extras to each page.
elaynef, that is a wonderful two pager. Great way to get so many photos on the LO. And the CD holder looks like it will be really helpful at organizing your stash. Great addition to your scraproom.
I have to explain this page. For the last few years I have been working on writing snippets of my life for The History Project class I took years ago. In Nov each year my DGD writes a novel for Nanowrimo and I write on my history and we encourage each other. This year she was too busy with school to do it, so I didn't either. I am hoping to get a few done in the next couple of months.
2 ketchup sketch pages today and 2 hours organization.
Yesterday I told you about dumping all my stickers in a big box together to see if that would help me see what I had and use them....well it didn't. I didn't know what to do about them, but this morning I got up determined to do something and before I knew it, I had pulled the garbage over close to them, and started putting them in.
I started out slowly but decided I was doing the right thing and threw almost all of them away. Some of them were 20 years old and I had no idea what I had or where to find them. I ended up with 2 big garbage bins full of stickers. (They didn't spark joy)
lovely pages elaynef - love the colours on the anniversary page and how you framed the photo with embellishments. The state park page is great - I have a hard time with busy patterns like that but it works perfectly on your layout.
and two hours of organising also - you go girl!

I am not even going to pretend I have a chance of posting praise for all the pages shared so far, but I am loving all the layouts and I'm so glad you're all sharing (even though I'm a total slacker who hasn't done anything since I finished my DD).

I love that you have these photos for your daughter to enjoy. I would love to have a better record of my college years, but have very few pics. (Before everyone had a camera in their pocket.. Bad old days.)
Here is my page for today, for the 12 Days of Christmas Day 4. I used an actual card we received from my niece after she made it at our house in November. The other card fronts were ones I had made but didn't end up sending.
