Oh, Just Because.

I caught the scrapbooking bug this week once again. I just love it when that happens. I think it has something to do with the fact that I took a trip to my new favorite (or at least closest) scrapbooking store in MooseJaw. The smell of new paper, the sight of brightly colored stickers and embellishments, it just makes my creativity flow! Actually, I should LIVE in a scrapbook store. Are there any scrapbook store condos on the market?

I found some Thickers that I had been looking for, plus a few things that I hadn’t been looking for, too 😉 I love the new vinyl thickers – LOVE THEM! I put them right to work on probably the oldest photo from this year that I haven’t gotten on a layout yet. It was from our summer trip to MJ that I wrote about HERE. Why hadn’t I scrapped it yet? Actually, I found it on my memory card – for some reason it hadn’t been copied to my computer with the rest of the photos. I REALLY love when that happens!! It’s like a gift! Especially when it’s a pic of me and my girls. Love it.

And I love these Making Memories journaling cards – they just that little something, which helps ME a lot because I’m often missing that certain little something on my pages 😉
Okay, this two page layout I created using a sketch from the current issue of CK magazine (if I remember correctly WHICH mag. I tore it out of – gotta write it down before I tear it out next time). This makes me SOOOOO happy – when I can fit so many photos on ONE layout! YES! This two page spread encompasses our entire trip to our local science center. We had such a great time, we bought season passes!! This page is basically one vertical 5X7 and the rest are horizontal 2X3s (though I stuck 2 vertical 1.5X2 photos together to make a 2X3 in a couple cases).
AND I finished scrapbooking my girls’ first day of school photos – for MY album. Many of these same photos will also make it into each of their own school albums as well, but this layout is MINE. I used a KOTM from Lisa Bearnson to make quick work of this. I just LOVE those kits – it helps me keep up with my goal!

Oh, and finally – TJ asked me to chop her hair, again, and this time we went even shorter (wow, she has faith in me). Here’s a sneak peak – I think I did a pretty good job, and we saved ourselves $15! NICE!
