April 06, 2013

Hi everyone! I'm back again to share the layouts that I made this week. And as you can see I'm still going strong with the 8.5 x 11" and I'm really considering making the switch! They say it take 21 days to form a habit (at least I think I read that somewhere!) So if you see more letter-sized pages from me next week I think we can call it official ;)

Anyway thanks for stopping by and here's a look at my creations from this past week.

My Pages from Week 03/31/13

This is a recent photo of my oldest son and I've taken the opportunity to journal about his ever-changing personality.  In life we take the good with the bad and its important to acknowledge this in our memory keeping as well-- for it is the not so great moments that make the great moments truly shine.  This is certainly true of parenthood!  As a mom I've experienced some bad days--but most of those days can be turned upside down by a single silly or sweet moment shared with one of my boys.

100% Pure Caleb by Amy Kingsford | Supplies: Sahlin Studio: Wood Veneers: Arrows, Precocious Papers, Precocious Element Bundle, Fresh Collab (with One Little Bird), Practically Perfect; Amy Martin: April 2013 Template Challenge Freebie, 4 x (six) Stitched Frames, Need More Stitching 3: Piles, Need More Stitching 5; One Little Bird: Westover.

This page I made as a reminder to treasure the little things in life.  To some an iced coffee, a good idea book and 15 kid-free minutes to enjoy them both are "no big deal," but I have come to treasure this time and enjoyed paying homage to the "me-moment" in this page.

Life's Little... by Amy Kingsford | Supplies: Anna Aspnes Designs: Art Play Palette Life's Little..., Artsy Layered Template No. 92 , Butterfly Glows No. 1, 8.5 x 11 Stitched White Borders.

I have to admit that this is one of those photos that I scrapbook again and again.  I just love looking back on this time in my son's life...he was so sweet and adventurous (he is still both of those things but in a different way) and omigosh that hair!  But I chose it for this particular page because the sun shining on my son's face and him laying in the grass really just embodied the feeling of Spring...laid back and oh so pleasant.  When I look at this photo I think "bring on the sun and the green grass and the blue skies."

Spring by Amy Kingsford| Supplies: Chelle's Creations: Bluebird on My Shoulder (The Digi Files); Quilt Square Template Freebie by Tami Taylor (Creative Passion Classes).

This is an old photo that I had rated "maybe" as far as scrapbooking it, but my family and I spent time looking at photos earlier this week and this one really got us talking. This is my husband and my oldest son at the age that my youngest is now. This photo is one of hundreds that capture the special bond shared between these two guys, but after reminiscing I couldn't wait to get it onto a page!

Just Me and You... by Amy Kingsford | Supplies: Crystal Livesay: Fun With Shapes V. 3 - Circles; The Ardent Sparrow: Let's Go Papers and Elements; Creashens: Griddy Frames; Gennifer Bursett: Fly Away Wood Grain

This photo was taken on a drive through the canyon near where my husband grew up, shortly after we were married.  It was a beautiful trip and I loved reflecting back as I made the page.  What makes the photos from this trip even more special is that shortly after this drive there was a horrible forest fire that wiped out most of this area and it is still in the re-growth phase nearly 7 years later.  We feel very fortunate to have experienced and captured the beauty of this area when we had the chance.

Just Drive by Amy Kingsford | Supplies: Anna Aspnes Designs: LandscapeART Paperie No. 6, Layered FotoBlendz No. 3, Word Frame Transfers No. 1, ArtPlay Palette Storm, Kriss Kross Stitched Overlays No. 1, Distressed Letters Lowercase No. 1; One Little Bird Designs: Tidbit Alpha

This page I made about starting a journal.  I've actually used my first journal entry as the text on the page and it was really fun using the feminine prints and elements in a page about myself.  A scrapbooker I admire very much--Leah Farquharson said to me once that it is never selfish to scrapbook yourself and while I am taking baby steps into this arena--I have to say I wholeheartedly agree!

Daily Ramblings by Amy Kingsford | Supplies: Karla Dudley: Damselle Collection, Sidewalk Alphas; Mye De Leon: Off We Go Elements; Creashens: Bare Necessities Papers; Crystal Livesay: Spring Fling Templates
