Race Day



A couple of quick layouts using some old Studio Calico kits.

I am bound and determined to get rid of some piles in my office.  Which means finishing some projects.  I am so close to finishing my 2014 yearly album!!!!  Once I have that complete I need to work on Ashley's 3rd grade entry in her school album.  She is half way done with 4th so I need to get on that.  Then I need to finish up my December daily albums and then there are three vacation albums that need to get started.  I can do this!

More Layouts



 When I was at my local scrapbook store this weekend, I picked up this winter line by Echo Park with these frozen lake photos in mind.  I had a few hours yesterday and I quickly put this one together.  Seeing the lake all frozen over was really cool.  I think it had been at least 20 years since it had happened.  I wanted so bad to walk out into the middle of the channel but Dave wouldn't let me, probably for the best.  But how cool would that have been!

Another quick layout using a Studio Calico kit.  Allison is a lefty and it sometimes hard to teach her things being a righty.  David was showing her how to shoot his bb gun, the photo on the right was after a successful hit to a can.

Super Saver Layouts




This weekend I sneaked away to my local scrapbook store Scrapbook Generation to do their super saver layouts.  Then, the best part, I got to put photos to them Sunday afternoon.  I typically don't have photos from Valentines Day so pictures of my girls seemed perfect for these pages.

Nuts

The poor cat never really had a name, but he was most commonly know as Nuts....I bet you can guess why.  He was a stray that showed up one cold night two years ago.  We refused to feed him and he refused to leave.  So we fed him.  He was a pretty gentle cat for a stray; he would cuddle in your lap, tolerated being held by the girls and Nuts and Trinity got along well.  Around Thanksgiving of this year he started bringing around his girlfriend and two kittens which we again refused to feed.  So he got fed less if they were around and he disappeared.  I don't know if he found greener pastures or if something got him. So I decided he deserved his own page in memory.

I need to get back into a scrapbooking routine!  I don't want to get too far behind on our memory keeping.

End of the year scrapbooking


I squeezed some time in last night to get these layouts done.  I used an add on kit from that kit company I used to belong to.  The two page layout is a beautiful blue sky weekend at the Resnik's where the kiddos got to shoot guns with the Dads.  The one page layout is from Thanksgiving weekend 2014 where the ladies and kiddos spent the morning at the Zoo.

I need to spend more time in 2016 scrapbooking!  Happy New Year!

Baptism



Sorry I haven't paid much attention to the blog, it is just that time of year.  I haven't had much mojo lately for scrapbooking but I need to fix that because I need to get all of 2014 in the books so I don't fall to far behind.  This is a fairly simple layout of David's baptism last year.

I never once pressured David into being baptized.  I never even mentioned the thought to him.  I know how he works and if he was going to do it, it would be when he was ready.  He always attended mass with us a family and I think he was ready to fully participate.  Plus I think Ashley preparing for her First Communion was a factor also.  On Ashley's First Communion David took his Second, just a little interesting fact there.
