2 Page Layout-o-rama!

Hello friends! Do you ever find yourself pondering over piles of pictures, trying to decide which ones to scrap, which ones to put in a photo album, which ones to ditch, and so on? Well, I have a couple of remedies for you! I used both ideas this weekend and they worked for me, so they are tried and true! Now, on to the goods...
This LO is of Anna's 5th birthday party. I always have a ton of birthday pictures and I always have a hard time deciding which ones to scrap. So, for this LO, I used the good ole' Walgreen's and had them do the hard part for me. I uploaded my pics, clicked on "collage," chose my format size (8x10), and added all the pics I wanted (up to 15!). I arranged them the way I wanted and for less than $3, I had a group of pics ready for a LO!
Our trip to Dinosaur World was super fun, and again, lots of pics were taken. I scrapped one page, then used a 6 pocket page protector from American Crafts (a pack of 10 costs $5.99 at Archiver's). I used 2 of the slots for a title and journaling spot and the rest of the pockets were filled with pics- ready for the album! I see myself using this technique/form of scrapping with vacation and holiday layouts. Easy peasy!

So, now that you know my two new favorite things to do with scrappin', here are two pages that were done with just wholesome, scrap goodness!

Our trip to Gulf Shores. I used the Snorkel line from Cosmo Cricket and Core'dinations paper. The pics I got on this trip were awful, due to a forgotten battery charger and a disposable camera. So, cutting up the pics was easy for me to do!

And this one of Elan, I have avoided it for over a year now... his first year "Growth Chart." Once I completed it, I felt I had conquered the world! It's pics of him at 1-2-4-6-9-12 months and his stats at the bottom of each. I love that it worked out that he was looking up at the bird holding the tape measure!

Okay... are you inspired? Go make a two page layout! It's not so scary... have a good night!


  1. Super cute pages!! I haven't made a 2pgr in years... must do that :)

  2. Again, too cute for words you busy girl! I am amazed at how much you accomplished on your weekend retreat.
