Scrapping the Sad Stuff

I didn't think about the sad stuff when I started Project Life. I knew I'd be keeping track of our family memories on a weekly basis, but thought it would just be the happy stuff, the cute things the kids say, my adventures in hair, you know the really important stuff. But then I had the miscarriage. And I haven't scrapped for the last three weeks. Even though I have the pictures for those … [Read more...]

Scrapbooking: Valentine’s Day Layout

We Heart You Journal

As a mom of two boys, I really like scrabooking Valentine's Day or love-inspired layouts because I can use all of the pink and heart-covered paper that I don't normally use.

Scrapbook Saturday: Got Milk?

TobinGotMilkPSK

I love these two pictures of Tobin nursing. Especially the little dimply grin in the second one. Tobin and I had more nursing issues than Nicholas and I did, and I wanted to talk about the whole experience a little bit. The journalling is short, but to the point. This layout is another inspired by Lisa Dickinson that I saw in the February 2012 issue of Scrapbooks, Etc. You can see her original … [Read more...]
