April Showers bring...

Exta time to stay inside and catch up on some scrapbooking!  I've been working on a few layouts and have managed to get in a few swaps here and there.  I knew I wouldn't be able to stop swapping cold turkey!

It seems as though these days my pictures are getting stuck inside my camera...something that has always been unheard of before now.  Its a very important time in my life as my wedding is in 2 months!  I actually need to clear out some of those pictures to make room for all the wonderful memories that will take up space on my memory card!

Here are a few layouts I've managed to churn out:

Somewhere along the way I gravitated towards kraft papers.  I think kraft is just as good of a neutral palette as black and white!  I actually prefer kraft over white...totally!  Here is a layout of my son.  He is quite the soccer star!  I was able to use my LOTW (letters of the word) on this one and it was perfect!  Other elements include a tab, a journal block and a tag with the subtitle.

I am trying really hard to use what I have.  Did I mention how hard that is for me?  There are so many great stacks for boys that have come out this season that I can't help myself!  This paper, in my opinion, was perfect for these pictures of my boys!  I cut squares out of scrap papers, mostly from the Making Memories "Chillin Out" stack I've had for quite some time.  A folded ribbon was the perfect final touch.

Finally, this is a layout of my son and his Kindergarten teacher.  I used the Edumacation stack by DCWV, my absolute favorite line of papers!  I have so many more kindergarten memories to scrap.  Hopefully I'll be able to get them done before the end of his school year.

It is my goal to get pictures printed before the end of the month so I can get to work and showcase some more layouts.  I also have a mini album I am dying to start.
