Layouts lately

It is midweek. How is yours turning out? As for me, I'm a bit busy this week getting all the details ironed out for a Kid's Craft Camp I'm holding next week. I'm excited to share my love for crafting to some young friends. I'll update you on it next week.

today I want to share some layouts I did recently. Lately I've been feeling the urge to "get caught up" and been whipping layouts more than I've done in the past months. I love these short but productive urges. They get me to accomplish just enough so that I won't be too overwhelmed for the next couple of months. aaahhh, the beauty of memory preservation! There's no right or wrong way to do it and you create at your own pace. I love my job!!! 

10 years
About three weeks ago, I participated in a sketch challenge at the 2peas website and I made this. The fun part...I won the challenge and got a gift certificate to the store. Woohooo!
I used the 10 squares on the left to encompass what each year represents in the past 10 years of me and hubby's marriage. I had a blast making this page and incorporating so many products to create my "yearly" boxes.

 Cabrillo Beach
this page was made with the Paper Bakery June Add On Kit. I also made with for the latest challenge we are doing at the blog, it is to make your own handmade embellishment. I have a tutorial for it and you can see it here.

 My Son
This one was made just for me. Love those kinds of projects. :)
Anyways, I had some This &That papers from Echo park that's been sitting on my table for over a month now and I had been wanting to find the perfect theme/project to use them with and these photos of my son (from three years ago) wearing his uncle's fedora hat was the perfect ones to use it with.

I love the vintage-y feel of the papers and with a combo of b&w and colored photos, it blended really well.

So that's it for me today. I hope these layouts inspired you to preserve some of those special memories for you family today in a scrapbook page.

Till next time,
