Late (as usual)

Finally got my October spread done for my "Ordinary Life" album. But for some reason when I resized my originals for the web the colors were desaturated... they are really a lot more vibrant than you see here. I'm confused - never had that happen before. Oh well, at least my printed copy will look fine.

I Forgot About This One...

Once I start a page I usually can't stop until it's done... but every once in a while I start something and then get interrupted so I have to save it and finish later. Today I was going through my files and I came across this page that I started months ago and had completely forgotten about. It was all about how Miles would call KC "Mommy" all the time, even after he learned how to say "Daddy". It was fun to finally finish it up.

Album Covers

I have quite a few albums that have little viewing windows on the front...

... so I decided to make some custom covers to slip in and make them look a little prettier. I love scrapbooking on a small scale like this, it seems to come together a lot more quickly for me versus a whole layout. Here are a few for my 2007 family albums:

{stitching & leaves by Shabby Princess; brown ribbon by Kelley Mickus; tag by Gina Cabrera; flower by Dani Mogstad; striped paper by Jessica Sprague; yellow paper by Sarah Benson; "2 Peas High Tide" font}

And these are for my boys' baby books... still trying to decide how I want to organize these albums and if I need more pages, but at least they'll have cute album covers! Zach's has a pretty big window, so I was able to embellish a lot:

{papers, buttons, felt embellishments, ribbon, stitching, & word tags by GG Digital Designs; folder frame w/ clip by Katie Pertiet; "GG Basic" font}

And Miles' is tiny, so I kept it simple:

A Little Obsessed

My latest - using more stuff by Tiff Brady! I'm sort of obsessed with her designs. I'd like to say that I scrapbook just because I want to capture the memories, but nothing gets me going like cute stuff to work with!

New Goodies

A couple of weeks ago {we are} storytellers was having an awesome sale so I splurged. I absolutely love their designs and their overall concept of keeping the focus of scrapbooking on telling your story. I just scrapped a couple of pages today using my new goodies:

This picture was taken last week

{pattern paper, stitches and alpha from "Autumn Sky" kit by Laurie Anderson (Heavens Gate Designs), blue paper from "roughed up mats" by Emily Merritt, ric rac ribbon from "My Little Toadstool" kit and yarn swirls by Tiff Brady, "Pea Jay" font}

And these were taken two years ago - feels good to finally get them scrapped!

Also - you probably noticed my new header - everything is from {we are} storytellers, by the fabulous Tiff Brady. Fun stuff!
