I’m still a layout making machine! I completed LOAD and managed to create more than the 31 layouts required. And I’ve kept up with creating each day (though it’s early in June, so I shouldn’t toot my own horn yet). But it does mean I have layouts to share.
Mike celebrated his 35th birthday this week. I don’t normally scrapbook about Mike. It’s not that I don’t want to or that I don’t love him … it’s mostly because I feel like it’s somewhat invading his privacy (if that makes sense). With the kids, I scrap about their lives, how I feel about them and try to document their stories since they can’t. Mike, on the other hand, is an adult … so if he wants to tell his story, then he can. I just try to be careful about not sharing too much or over sharing.
Another year, another birthday. And another chance to tell you how much I love you. You are a good man Mike. A good man indeed. You’re a good daddy. You’re a hard worker. You’re a great friend. You’re smart. You’re funny. You’re awesome and thirty five. Happy birthday my love.
When I showed Shelby this layout she said “Mom, those pictures are from Halloween. You are really behind on your scrapbooking!” Umm, thanks? Actually, this was another assignment and I was tasked with using the Bump in the Night kit from PxlCafe. Even though I created this layout for an assignment, it has now become one of my favorites. I normally have trouble using “themed” products, so it was a huge victory for me to use something so specific to Halloween.
Oh Shelby, you may be totally adorable, but you’re also totally silly. Trying to get a “serious”
picture of you is next to impossible; IT DRIVES MY NUTS! But all the silliness along the way is pretty cute too, so I can’t really complain. Halloween 2010
This was a quick layout I created for an assignment from PxlCafe, but it’s one of my favorites as of late. I love the colors. Love the photos. And I love the simplicity of it all.
