Layouts (& project) | Week of Oct 20-26

This week I worked on a few of the monthly challenges at The Lilypad.

This was for the random challenge - we played a game of telephone tag/digi morph (whatever you want to call it) and here's my page.  I actually scrapped it earlier in the month but held onto it for the big reveal:

This was for the product challenge, using wood:

Beechtree papers and elements by Sara Gleason;
At The Moment element by One Little Bird;

Quicktype Condensed II font

I also created this little printable this week - as an LDS woman, each month I visit a few women from my congregation and share a spiritual message with them.  I like to make printables using my scrapping supplies and a favorite quote to share with them.  This is the one I made this month:

created with Equinox papers and elements by One Little Bird; Salamander Script and Slab Tall X fonts

That's it for this week - thanks for stopping by!

Hawaii Album

My husband and I went on the trip of a lifetime last summer - and I finally have something tangible to show for it! For our vacation album I opted to keep it really simple with just photos + words. I created an 8x8 14 page photo book and ordered using this coupon code at Adorama Pix.  I love the quality of their books - the pages are thick and the colors are spot on. And I'm a big fan of the lay flat binding.  I took a some pictures to share, here's Kauai 2012:

It's hard to tell in the photos, but the cover has a cool metallic sheen to it.

Check out those lay flat pages. Love it!

Below is my very favorite spread - photos taken on our helicopter tour of the island.

The spine.

 And the back - I put this on the back of all the photo books I create.

And that's it! I love the satisfaction of completing a project like this. I've got a couple of other albums in the works that will (hopefully) be photobooks soon. I can't wait to share them!

In case you are wondering... that's Thank Goodness It's Digi Night Out!  Scrapping has halted here at home due to sad, sick little baby :( Double ear infection, fever, rash... no fun and no scrapping. But, my wonderful husband gave me a much needed break last Saturday and I got my scrap on at Digi Night Out! (Thankfully, baby is now doing MUCH better and is almost back to his happy self.)

I got to play with the gorgeous kit we received from Featured Designer Michelle Coleman of Little Dreamer Designs:

created with Fall Fest kit by Michelle Coleman

And here's the page I made during the speed scrap:

I also squeezed in another Disneyland page - but I'm waiting until I finish the album to post it all here at once. All in all a super fun night of scrapping... and I got to hang out with all my favorite digi gals! It was super fun to drive down with the fabulous Amy Kingsford, too. (I'm sorta star struck around her!)

I'm gonna slip in one more page real quick - not one I made at Digi Night Out, but I made it earlier this week and want to share it here too :)
