New Layouts

Brrrrrrr! It's cold outside this morning! My youngest daughter is sick and we are at home staying warm. I just wanted to post a couple of layouts I finished this week. For this first layout I used Basic Grey products (paper & button), Thickers (letters for the title), & Heidi Swapp (ghost flower). For the white scallop border I used the Fiskars Threading Water punch and the paper flower was made from an EK Success punch. I like to include handwritten journaling on some of my pages, but I don't like the way my handwriting looks. I decided to hide my journaling under the picture of the girls jumping off the bench. I do this a lot more often than I care to admit, lol.

For my second layout I used an Autumn Leaves pocket and Making Memories for everything else. Just a simple layout to document their top 5 Christmas wishes. Out of the four kids, Jordans list was definately the most interesting:

1. A newt
2. Roller skates
3. A glass doll
4. A Barbie doll
5. The cookies that Santa didn't eat

Gotta love that kid. At least she decided to try for a newt instead of the snake she was originally asking for.

I've been working on my December album, but I need to get to the store for more photo paper so I can finish the first few days. I am using the Making Memories FaLaLa collection and one of their bracket albums. Having lots of fun with this and can't wait to have the finished album at the end of the month.
