Catching Up.....a little!

 I thought it would be a good idea to decide which of the many photos of Ava I need to get scrapped before the new baby comes in January.  I have had some extra time off at the dental office due to the doctor having eye surgery, decided this would be a good time to get get caught up on my scrapping. 

One of the layouts that I finished this past week was scrapped with photos taken at a baby shower in September 2010, Ava was seven months old at the time.  I had previously scrapped photos that were taken of Ava in the motel room the night before the shower and wanted to scrap photos of the baby shower to go on the opposite page.  For those of you that have followed my scrapping, know that I like my layouts to match, not necessarily everything, but at least the colors.  I will also scrap with the same paper, or coordinating paper on the opposing layout.   

The sketch for this layout came from Allison Davis.  I changed it a little and added another photo to my layout.  Be sure and stop by her blog for more inspiration & ideas!  You will have to scroll down to the June layout to see this sketch.

Ava & her mommy & daddy spent part of her first summer with us....we loved having them with us!  Heath had taken a job working at the elevator and we couldn't turn them down when Raegen ask if we would mind having them stay with us for a couple of months!  Of course soon are you coming?   It was great going to work every day knowing that I would get to spend the evening playing with Ava, such a fun time!
Grandpa & Rachelle were just as happy about our summer visitors.  Although the time went fast that summer, we loved having them with us! 

My second layout was scrapped using another creative sketch by Allison her sketches.  We have visited friends in Cheyenne, Wyoming every summer since helping them move to Cheyenne in July of 1993.  Raegen has always enjoyed our visits to Cheyenne and was thrilled when we invited them to go along.   Although we didn't take Ava to see all of the activities offered during Cheyenne Frontier Days, she did attend her first free pancake feed, first parade, and toured Frontier Park.  

A good week of scrapping for me.....I finished a third layout!  This layout was scrapped for a Summer Camp Challenge to use weaving on a layout.  

The title for this layout came from the front of Ava's T shirt.....My Little Black Dress!  Love the weaving and colors!  

Have a great week and thanks for looking!

  2. Great pages, Carolyn!! Glad you have a little time off, to work on some layouts!
