Lost teeth and battleships, oh my!

So I've been doing pretty good at keeping to my goal of a page a day this week.  I've completed 3 more digital pages and 1 hybrid. 

I bought these cute Loose Tooth journaling cards from Rebecca Cooper's Simple As That store.  I modified them a bit to suit my page.  I'm going to print this layout because it's digital and then cut a hole in the page to put her letter to the tooth fairy.  Hopefully that works.

I've finished our family photos from last year.  Once again I used the Heidi Swapp Gold Foil Project Life Kit that is available only at Michaels.  It's hard to tell, but I cut out the LOVE with my Silhouette Portrait on gold foil paper (it looks black here).

 Again, it's super easy to duplicate these layouts and make them apply to both kids' albums.

January 2014 Layouts

So I'm challenging myself to make a page a day to get caught up on my scrapbooking.  I am just now getting started on my 2014 album and it's absurd how quickly the memories in my head fade.

We all know that once Halloween is over, then Christmas starts happening in full swing.  We are taking a week long vacation for Thanksgiving, and I already anticipate making a Cancun mini album, another December Daily album, and I've really got to make that ornament album I've been putting off for like 5 years.

Here is the start to my 2014 album.  I kept a lot of the same ideas that I loved last year, like the wooden background.  I just chose a lighter veneer.  Again I'm going to keep the base stuff the same -- it saves time and I liked the continuity it added to the finished album.  These pages really don't take a lot of time, so hopefully that goal isn't too lofty.  Here's to 2014 ... via October.
