So it might look like three layouts, but really it's only one Memory Nest layout that I have for you. My layout features a pull tab that slides the photo to be three different ones of my littlest one falling asleep. I'm really glad this worked out so well. It's been forever since I've done an interactive page. I hope you enjoy my take!

Happy Monday! Here is my layout for the Memory Nest. We just got back from our trip to Walt Disney World. We weren't going to do any character things, but my daughter put this wookiee shirt on when we went to Hollywood Studios. There isn't a ton for little kids to do there and the line was short to see Chewbacca. He was so much fun and was one of our favorite experiences from our trip. The layout is simple, but looks cool in person. I didn't want to over do the layout since it had so much stitching on it, but I might go back and to a little boarder around it.
Hey, I'm really late in posting this. It was my layout last month for the Memory Nest. I was back east visiting my family and ment to post this while I was there, but my mom ended up having a stroke and that ocupid my mind. Thankfully, my mom is doing really well. It even took longer for me to post, because we went to Flordia (Disney World) right after that and finally are home.

Happy Monday! It has been a busy time at my house. Lots of birthdays in the summer for us! My daughter just had her party this weekend. Few, I'm glad it is done. It was chaos! A lot of smoke has been coming down from fires in Canada and we haven't been able to spend much time outside because of the poor air quality. It's also been in the 90s almost every day and most of Seattle has no air conditioning. Being stuck in a hot house that can't have the windows open is no fun.
Anyways, here is my memory nest layout. My husband had to fly to Toronto for work on my son's birthday, so we went to the zoo the day before and did things we don't normally get to to like feed animals and ride the carousel there. I still wanted to do something on his birthday, so we gathered the neighborhood kids and had a mini celebration on our driveway. It was cute, fun, and easy. These are the photos I took. I had a bunch, and this layout made it easy to get a lot on. Also, I got that frame maker from we r memory keepers....I made the rainbow frame with it. Since I use so many frames on my layouts, I thought it would be worth getting it. It works well and I'm glad I bought that tool.

Happy Monday! Here is my layout for the Memory Nest. I must say, that I thought I would get a lot more scrapbooking done this summer, but it seems to be difficult to find the time. I guess the nice weather has been calling me outside too much. My daughter recently bridged from being a Daisy to a Brownie in Girl Scouts. It was really cute, but the lighting was horrible. I tried to make the best of the poor photo quality. I spent a ton of time on the background of this layout, and you can't see most of it. I first used my markers to make this circle of dots. Then I painted more bigger circles. Finally I used this glaze stuff to make four different textured regions. You can see the triangles in the upper right best. I was going to watercolor so the textures pop out more, but decided that it might make the page too busy. I already have a lot going on and it is a bit tricky to read the title.

Here is my Memory Nest layout for this week. My layout is a cute one of my little guy. I love the outfits with little ears. They are my weakness. I recently got a button maker for my daughter's birthday and I made that little panda button using it. It took a couple of attempts, but I'm starting to get the hang of it. I see lots and lots of buttons in my future. Buttons are one of my favorite embellishments for scrapbooking.

Wow it's monday. We had such a busy week! There was pony riding with girl scouts, ballet recital, hand chime playing, and a gymnastics show. I'm exhausted from it all. Anyways, here it my latest Memory Nest layout. The photos are from when my daughter recieved her ballet costume and tried it on. She was a little blue bird. She loves the outfit because it has feathers instead of sparkles. Feathers are soft compaired to sequence that gets itchy and scratchy! It has been a while since I edited photos, but I really wanted to make the blue of her tutu stand out. The alpha stickers I used on my layout are not my favorite, but it turns out I don't have to many blue options. The l and the u in blue look the weirdest.

Wow, how can it be monday already? Time is going by much to fast! Here is my latest layout for the Memory Nest. The background is supposed to look like tire tracks...it might have worked a bit better if I used black paint instead of white. Oh well. This was a fun layout to do. This is my first real boy layout out of what I can only imagine will be many. I've never scraped trucks before! I discovered that I don't have too many boy geared embellishments with the exception of monsters. I have a lot of *cute* monsters. With the lack of manly embellishments, I actually tried to make a big dump truck for the background. It didn't go to well. My truck making needs a lot of work. HAHAHA!
I decided to make my photos be the angle shape. This let me have a bunch more photos. I still have a ton of extra truck photos though. It was a fun event. So many types of trucks! The bomb squad truck with the robot was one of the coolest! It also was interesting to hear the search and rescue driver as they own their own vehicles since they are all volunteers.

Wow time sure does go by fast! Here is my layout for the Memory Nest. My son loves to sing and dance and my husband took these photos of him dancing away when we went to see the tulips. I just had to scrap them. The layout ended up being fairly simple, but sometimes simple is all you need. It turns out that it is really hard to scrap with a little baby around who likes to be awake and grab everything. I wanted to do some stitching on this layout, but it was just too hard to do it with a baby on my lap. I also tried to do some stamping, and that didn't go so well and I ended up having to cover it up. I definitely need to come up with some clever ways to scrapbook with a baby around. Maybe my littlest guy will become a scrapbooker?

Happy Monday! I've got my latest Memory Nest layout. We just went to see the tulip fields. I don't think a year can pass without going to see them. It was crazy windy this year! The weather was not nearly as nice weather as in years past, but we did miss most of the rain. It started to downpour when we got back to our car.
This year, I made dutch outfits for two of my kids. They came out really cute, but I never got around to making one for Benji. Hopefully next year!
This layout is for my daughter and was fun to do. Her pictures came out really beautiful. She really is starting to grow into a little lady. Anyways, I liked being able to use a project life card. I have way too many of those as I never get far doing them. Hopefully I'll catch up. We shall see!
