Let's Bowl LO

Another layout from March 2008.  I used Karen Foster paper and stickers and a sketch.

Friends LO

I also really need to use up my swap stuff that I've had stashed away.  Here's my first layout with MME swap elements for the year.  The picture is of Emma and Sara from 2008. I also used a sketch from http://www.thescrappiest.blogspot.com/


Fall 2-page LO

I have several pages that I've made at CTMH parties over the years that just don't the pictures put on them, so I've decided to just do it.  Here is the first page using some of their fall paper from last year and pictures from October 2008.

1st layout of 2011

Finally, ten days into 2011, I was able to sit at my scrap table and do a layout.  My crafty goals this year is to clean up my scrap space downstairs and use what I have!  These papers and stickers are from a kit that I bought on sale at Hobby Lobby.  I added the felt border by Queen and Co.  The pictures are of my kiddos back in 2008 coloring Easter eggs and decorating cookies. I also used a sketch but was too late to post it.
