First Layouts of 2012

I made 2 layouts just for the heck of it - imagine that!

I LOVE the AC Chap line 

and one page with the November Studio Calico main kit

(click images for product credits) Eventually I’ll figure out InLinkz ;) 

I recently learned that Ania-Maria had the idea to use this page of mine

as a recent MA DT challenge.  Anyway it led me to her gorgeous blog! Thanks to the ladies who used this page I am loving all that I saw so far! 

You can find their challenges HERE and HERE


A couple pages I forgot to share.

I spent last night looking through some old photos to find pictures from my childhood I wanted to scrap. There are so many. Has anyone gone through their own childhood photos to scrap?

I think we’re finally getting into a routine for the school year. I’ve been slacking on taking photos lately because we’ve been so busy! Besides the normal stuff we’ve been doing fun activites for All for the Boys, and gearing up for their extra curriculars starting next week!



So last weekend my very first Elle’s Studio  layouts went up in the gallery. So exciting to be among such talented women. 

Here’s what I made

Is anyone doing A Week in the Life this year with Ali Edwards? I attempted it last year but failed (as usual on that stuff) but I was considering trying again this year but doing it with only iPhone pictures. Not sure yet still thinking.

(some iPhone pictures on my computer at the moment)

For those that follow this blog who don’t consider themselves scrapbookers do you try and capture/keep track of your daily lives? 

If you ARE doing it are you documenting it digitally or paper?


Only one this week, but will have lots going on this weekend for iNSD at both 2peas and DHD! I hope you’ll join in on some of the fun!

Oh and a SUPER fun giveaway for your kids - oh who am I kidding for your whole family- over at All for the Boys (if you haven’t checked it out you need to head over!)



Since I didn’t do Wordless Wednesday I thought I’d catch you up on my pages from the last week today on Thursday :)

I’m still trying to carve out time to do some paper scrapping - I need to do mini albums for February and March. And I have the April Studio Calico kit to play with!

Anyway, no paper pages this week - all digital. Click on the images to see the credits :)
