Disney Layouts

So you can now see how far behind I am in scrapbooking. I almost have all three kids caught up to this point. I will only be 3 years behind on each of them YIPEEE!!!! I have several days coming up to scrapbook in the next few weeks so I hope I will get somewhere near caught up! I would love your comments on these layouts.

scrapbook layouts

Wow, I have been totally neglecting my blog - I am sorry! It seems that the past few weeks have been nothing but crazy - life happens. I have been trying to turn my focus to scrapbooking these days because I am so far behind I think I am ahead. You can see that I have finished my daughters 2 months pictures.....well, she is 3 - not months - Years. I am not doing much better with my sons albums. So needless to say that is my focus. I also have a wedding album that I haven't even started yet. We have only been married 9 years......Sad..... So I have dedicated 1 Friday a month to scrapbooking. A friend of mine and I are going to a local scrapbook store for crop night. It generally starts at 7 pm but we will be going at noon. That way we will have a good 12 hours of cropping. Lastnight I got 24 pages done. I have brought them home to embellish them. Makes life so much easier. I don't have the confidence in my finished layouts that I do in my cards - so please be kind to me.....Here are 3 that I have completed.

You can't really see it in the picture but each picture has either a button or a little tied sassy strand. There is also sassy strand at the top. It really looks pretty.

This layout is in honour of my grandmother. She was an amazing quilter so this is a layout for her! I think she would love it. She can look down from Heaven above and smile.

Pictures don't do my layouts any justice. They really do look better in person. All the designs are taken from the Reflections book. Thanks so much for looking!

New cricut cartridges

Today in the mail was a very exciting day. I got two new cricut cartridges - one being Paperdoll dressup. I didn't get a chance to play with it tonight, but I am going to try to get a moment tomorrow between running kids here and there and attending a bridal shower. I plan to make my daughter a travel kit using the cartridge and make paper dolls with magnets. That way she can put the items on, play with them and put them back in the case which will also be metal. Perhaps different background borders could be a possibility too. We will see. I LOVE my cricut!
