Family Layout

I was excited to see some new Heidi Swapp products in Michaels that had a lot of gold foil on them.  They were perfect for my family photos.  She paired with Becky Higgins and made 4 new Project Life Mini Kits and I love them all.  I purchased the Gold Foil Value Kit and Glitter Value Kit and made the following pages.  I have 2 more in the works.


Here's a closer look at each page:

 

I left a few of the transparencies empty with just a few embellishments to give it a layered look.  The only hard part about this is that you have to plan your opposite page to include those same gaps.



Supplies: Thickers, American Crafts: glitter stripe paper, Jen Hadfield Home+Made from Pebbles; pink paper, Studio Calico Sundrifter

Quotes of the Day

Maya was trying to convince Ethen to do something. He said, "Sorry, Maya, my mind is all used up."

-----------------------

Maya:  "Mom, 'What are we going to do now?' is my favorite question after 'Are we there yet?'"

-----------------------

Ethen:  "Mom, I think your house is already enough decorated. We don't need to go to any more stores.  I think it looks just perfect the way it is."

-----------------------

Maya:  "I keep popping out of nonsense places."

November Layouts

I'm getting there, people.  After a few days of being desperately ill with strep throat, I'm back in action.  Ethen had it too, and he didn't slow down for a moment.  I'm getting too old for this stuff.

Anyway, I got a few layouts done.  Still trying to wrap up last year's album.  Please tell me it's still summer and we haven't faded into fall yet...




I took some more photos of the kids that I'll include here, just because I think they turned out pretty awesome.  I took more bad photos than good, but I am pleased that I'm getting a better handle on my camera skills.
