I had a slow day at work and since I am the church secretary my boss doesn’t care that I look busy all the time as long as I can answer the phone when it rings. I knew I was all caught up on work so brought a couple kits and some needed items to scrapbook. I started by finishing the days for Personal Scrapper’s Octoberfest Layout A Day contest. (Known from now on as L.O.A.D)
This was was for my favorite challenge so far. It was a bingo theme. It was a grid of like 16 items and you had to pick across, down, etc. Mine was two use 2 PP, inked edges, a ribbon, and 8+ buttons.
This challenge was to use doubles. I have two PP, 2 fonts, 2 diecuts, 2 ribbons, and 2 journal blocks.
This one was for using the leftovers of life preserve scrap club’s Main September kit. I loved the colors in this kit and the semi vintage feel.
This challenge was to do a layout of someone you admired and to use an adjective to describe them in the title. Aaron is my hero. He really never complained during his hospital stay and was never a brat. He did everything that was asked and in fact comforted me. He is amazing!
This one was to use the number seven or lucky in a layout. I opted for the word lucky.
I really love this one too. It was done with the scraps I had from that LPS kit and August stamps from them too. My title is a play on words. Instead of night owls I put day owls. Those owls are SOO cute!
The next kit I am trying to use up is the September kit from PS. It is another fun one. This one and the one below is school shopping which is an annual tradition from when I was even a kid
Another school layout. The pencil frame is the stamps from LPSC. It is September’s stamp set.
So these three are from the September alternative kit from LPSC. I didn’t think I had ordered it as I was on the fence but then she invoiced me so I figured I must have :D lol Funny how the memory works. I ended up liking the layouts I did with it. It is prima and I have not used any of their paper before. All these are different takes on similar photos on a family “outing” to starbucks. I drink a lot of their coffee but rarely buy for the boys. In fact before this was one other time when Alex was just a few months old. But we had time to waste so why not? It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy our lattes and hot cocoas.
PS… The three layouts above with the typed journaling (other then the food one) is a journal block I did where I wrote about my love of my boys individually. Like how my oldest is just like me but at the same time it makes me sad as I makes things more difficult then they need to be. And how my middle one is so sweet and sneaky at the same time. And how he has already proven his character with how he handled his hospital stay. And my baby Alex and how he is all boy and knows kisses are only on lips and no where else even though I steal kisses on his nose, ears, and neck.
