Quickie layout

I'm so sorry for being a bad post for almost a month! I'm still here, and still scrapping but as they say, real life gets in the way.

Sharing with you a layout done last week based on a sketch at Sketchy Thursdays:

Title: Our Dream Vacation
Made this layout to document our itinerary for our US vacation last summer. Yeah, the photo is not so great but nonetheless scrappable. It was taken while we were waiting for our luggage. They still managed to smile even after 13 hours of flying time! Used Little Yellow Bicycle pps for this one.

Here's a close-up:

My DH doesn't usually make lots of comments regarding my layouts...but for this layout, he said "It's better if the airplane is movable." What?????

Summer Time

Its definitely not summer here but this photo is about one of Julia's favorite things to do during summer. Finished this page a few days ago...inspired by the challenge word at Bird is the Word blog. The word is MEMORY. Used my favorite Ali Edwards stamp for this.

There are so many things in this layout that makes me happy. First of all, I've been wanting to use my 5 and Dime pps by October Afternoon. Well, OA is another one of my faves and I love how the papers from old and new lines can go together. I was also able to use doilies (hand cut from OA Schoolhouse pps) and the banner is from the Seaside line. Secondly, I was able to finish this layout quite fast, less than 2 hours I think and that's fast for a slow scrapper like me. And of course, its another moment in my daughter Julia's life that I was able to scrap about....she loves to go biking and was able to learn fast (so unlike me, in this aspect)!

Been creating with Basic Grey recently

I have been creating with Basic Grey recently and  I heard about their new blog too.  Here's a layout based on the sketch contest that they have over there.

Title: Easter Egg Hunt

I used the Luscious line plus a little of Sweet Threads for this one. The layout is not my typical layout coz I rarely use 5x7 photos nowadays but the photo is very special. This is the photo of our scrapbooking family in our little town. We get together for Easter, Halloween, Christmas, and birthdays too!

By the way, here's the sketch...

Here's another Basic Grey layout, again using the Luscious line...

Title: 10.18.10
Journaling: Julia and Ally letting everybody know Mommy's age. Yup, I'm 38!

This layout is based on a PageMaps sketch which is the sketch for Paper Secrets August challenge. Photo was taken on my birthday last year.

Gotta go...I'm still itching to scrap! Thanks for looking!
