Bring Back Double Page Layouts!

Just as I was complaining to myself of only seeing single page scrapbook layouts on my nightly blog hopping routine, I realized my own blog has been guilty of this very offense {gasp}.   Don't get me wrong, I love single page layouts, but the majority of my scrapbooks are filled with double page spreads, so I want to make sure my blog reflects my actual scrapbooking.  SO....
I started working on a two page layout last night and then decided I would video the process.  A typical page for me - lots of photos, some memorabilia, and just a couple of die cut embellishments to accent the memory.  Not too complex.  Baseball theme (no surprise there...hehe).  Hopefully I'll finish the spread and video to post sometime over the weekend.  So stay tuned double page layout friends!

Jack-A-Razzi Layout!

I love this photo of my son - I changed it to black & white to avoid cluttering the image.  For my layout, I used the new Spellbinders Sprokets dies  to add movement along the page.  The Tim Holtz for Sizzix Filmstrip and Chip Block dies added the perfect accents to my layout.  You could use the Sizzix Tim Holtz gears for this as well.

My brother-in-law snapped this photo of my son Jack during my niece Claire's baptism (see last layout post).  I gave Jack my camera to get some photos and boy did he take the job to heart!! I plan to add my journaling about the day on the film strip openings.  The paper here is from October Afternoon's Thrift Shop line.  Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Godparents Again!

Happy Saturday everyone!  Ok, here is another baptism layout, but this time for my niece and now Godchild, Claire.  Isn't she darling!?  I used the February Club Ruby Kit for this layout - the papers and embellies in the kit are fabulous!
