Ava's First Year....finished!

I have officially finished Ava's first year, sure did take me long enough!  The fact that I am too picky & a very slow scrapper didn't help.  So happy to be finished and ready for more!   

This first layout was Ava's first experience at opening presents on Christmas morning....such fun!  No doubt, the adults had more fun on Christmas morning helping Ava open her presents than she did.  She seemed a little unsure of all of the excitement.  I started both layouts at my yearly crop in Park City the end of September, finishing the title & journaling at home.  

The photos for the second Christmas layout were taken on Christmas Eve before attending church services.  Sure seems like a long time ago!  

I scrapped the second layout using the "Say Cheese" collection by Simple Stories and added one other pp that I picked up at the crop.  I love this collection and plan to use it on several layouts for Ava and her baby brother which is due in January, or sooner.  
The title is a K & Co. sparkly rub-on.
My last layout was scrapped for a weekly challenge on a scrap website.  It is from a kit by Scrapbook Generations, my first, and love how easy it was to finish a two pager!  After posting my layout for the challenge, a fellow scrapping called it to my attention that I had misspelled embarrassing.  I still haven't taken a new photo of the layout with the correct spelling but wanted to go ahead and post to my blog.  I actually torn some of the paper while removing the title and need to do a little repair work!  

I love the soft colors in this kit and have four more kits waiting.  I can see why so many scrappers like using the kits from SG, great papers & easy to follow instructions.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog.


  1. Such a great feeling to have a completed album, Carolyn! Love your fun double pagers, and don't worry about the misspelling. I spell stuff wrong on my pages all the time and put on the wrong dates. :)

  2. It is wonderful to see that you have created so many beautiful pages Carolyn. I love your two pagers.
