Scrapbooking, Lovely Molly


How was my daughter ever so small?  Where did that little toddler face go?  I've had this photo sitting on my desk for years in a pile.  It's my pile of photos I want to scrap, but for some reason didn't scrap them and never put them away properly.  Well, I finally got to this one.
I hope you enjoy my take on the sketch for the Memory Nest.  I'm not huge into pink and teal, but I actually really like how it worked on this layout. One of my favorite parts is the wooden lovely coming down on the upper right.  I have a bunch of wooden words and I love them so much that I tend not to want to use them.  I do find, that if I don't use them, then they end up breaking.  They are very fragile things.

Scrapbooking, Jump


Happy Monday! In all the chaos of school starting and what not, I totally forgot to hit publish for this post. Whoops, sorry!
Here is my latest page for the memory nest.  I've taken a bunch of swimming photos this summer and have lots of water layouts to make. This time I used my Lawn Fawn mermaid stamps.  I've used them for cards lots, but not a layout yet.  I tried to use the fish stamps to make a chevron like in the sketch, but it kind of ended up going a bit big and you can't really tell.  The coloring of all the fishes was very therapeutic though.


I also have exciting news, we are expecting #3 in January! And we found out it is going to be a boy!
