National Scrapbook Page #2

I got up this morning and whipped out this second page. I knew what I wanted to do so it came together pretty quickly. I have been wanting to do a page about the great success Rem has had this year in his first year of high school. This week he won a student council election that was pretty tough and then these challenges for NSD came along so I thought I would combine it all into a layout. I journaled on three tags - I had a lot to say to him and put it in the top pocket.

This is for challenge #8 to use My Mind's Eye product.

National Scrapbook Day Pages

Here is my first page for National Scrapbook Day:

For Scrapbook Generation, this is the first challenge - make one or more special stars. I cut equilateral stars on my Cameo and then popped them up to give them lots of dimension so they kind of looked "super hero-y". The title and the "C" are also Cameo cuts.

December Project 12

I have not posted all my Project 12 pages from this year, but I have Jan-July done. and now add December to the done pile! I am trying to do some catch up this month and am going to try to get the rest of the Project 12 pages done for 2012. I really love doing this. This is my 4th year and I have to say these are the albums I look at the most! I love seeing a quick two page month summary!

I used a Sketch Support sketch that I bought that was for using 6x6 pads. I like the sketches she did in that group!

For December there are pictures of Nutcracker, baking cookies, visiting Santa, 12-12-12, my birthday, studying for finals, Christmas Eve and Christmas day, and New Year's Eve.

March Project 12

Here is my Project 12 layout for this month. A lot of spring break pictures, the start of baseball season, that same picture of Rem with his Hunter Safety stuff, a choir concert, taking one of our trucks to preschool and of course Colston's 4th birthday.

I used a Sketch Support sketch for the layout.

Bella Blvd Challenge - Day 3: Use Patterned Paper as and Embellishment

I didn't know if I was going to be able to do it but thanks to a nice nap time I got this last challenge page done. Our family loves to play badminton, so summer is often badminton season. We leave the net up a lot and you never know who you are going to find out there playing. These are pictures from different times last summer.

The challenge was to use the Bella patterned paper as an embellishment so I cut some fun flowers on my Cameo out of several different papers.

Bella Blvd Challenge - Day 2

Well, I made 10 out of 12 layouts this month as far as layouts done for my BPC class 12. So this is my "me" page. It is about the accomplishment I felt climbing something here in town called The Incline. It is where a cable car used to go up Pikes Peak now it is a favorite place to climb. It is a crazy climb. It is only about a mile and a half up but gains 2,000 feet and at the steepest part is a 67% grade. Yeah, it is a crazy climb not for wimps. And I always kinda thought that as of late I am a wimp when it comes to physical activity, but I did this!!

For the Bella Blvd challenge this is the day 2 challenge to use 4 or more different lines. I used Tail Waggers, Mr. Boy, Christmas Wishes, Sophisticates, and Finally Fall.

Bella Blvd Day 4 Challenge - Border Strip Papers

The next challenge I did for the Bella Blvd challenge week was using the border strips. Again, not a huge challenge for me because I use them and love them!

The page is my youngest son on his tetter totter. He loves being outside particularly on the swing set or in the sand box.

Bella Blvd Day 5 Challenge - Punched Circles

I did the punched circles for my next challenge page. I loved the example page by Kimberly Neddo so I did something very similar. You can't see the stitching in the scan but I stitched across the circles.

This page is about the family's love for my iPad. When I ordered it I knew that you could read on it and I knew there was a cool baseball score keeping app, but that was all I knew. Now that we have it I joke they should be sold in pairs because if you have one you will more then likely wish you had two.
