Hey, Ya'll,

It's been a fun month. I'm still doing lots of yard work and most of our garden is planted. I've still been able to get quite a bit of scrapbooking done. Yay! This month I'm bringing you 2 fun layouts...one about Crazy Hair Night at Wednesday Kids Bible Study and one about my 8 year old's Treasures. I've been inspired by The Paperclipping Roundtable to document more than just events. So, I took a photo of my son's desk...where he keeps all his favorite things. Then I asked him to write about it. So, I have his favorite stuff and his hand writing from this time in his life.

Crazy Hair Night

For this one, I chose a retro-inspired 12 x 12 patterned paper for the background. Next, I added the vellum and the brown card stock strip down the right side. I attached both of those with staples. Then I adhered the 4 x 6 photos and used my wavy edge scissors on a piece of white card stock to form the decorative piece under the bottom photo. I used foam stamps and sepia StazOn for the title. Finally, I added the hand journaling.


I used a plain piece of tan colored card stock for the back ground here. Next, I added the green card stock accent under the photos. I used my corner rounder on the photos and the accent card stock. The title is done with Making Memories rub-ons. The embellishment on the bottom right is done with a leftover punch out sheet.

See what I'm talking about.

What about next month?

You just never know. We'll see...stay tuned to Youtube to find out.

Until sometime around the middle of June
