5th Grade Layout

Scrapping two days in a row - that's priceless, especially in my newly hectic life! I wanted to do a school related picture since my kids started school this month, so I grabbed my oldest son's 5th grade picture and got to work. I used die-cuts from three different Cricut cartridges, threw in a little stamping and a few wooden shapes, and another memory is captured.

APU Soccer Camp Layout

Insomnia may not be great for your health, but it sure worked wonders for my scrapbooking. After a month-long scrapbooking drought, I managed to put together the base of this layout last night between midnight and 1 am! I pulled out some papers from a box my neighbor donated to me when she moved in June (so I have no idea what they are called or who manufactured them), and paired them with some trusty CTMH cardstock. A few die-cuts from the Cricut Artbooking cartridge finished off the job. Hope you like my first foray into scrapbooking for a while.
