Lindsey Visiting Grandparants Layout

This whole layout was done with Stampin Up! products. I used their scrapbooking set. But I can't remember the name of the set. I had ripped down the side of the more lighter paper, so I could have that little bit of white showing. Put the photos that I had mounted on white paper on the ripped paper. On the darker side, I used the already made tags. On the top of the tags I used the Stampin Up! natural buttons, with brown yarn floss. The tags was were I did my journaling. On the two right corners, I used sticker corners. We were at a birthday party and she was sitting next to her 3 week older cousin. Doesn't she look like she is being squished.
I used my favorite template with this layout. Lindsey was hanging with her grandparents. The title is Cute As A Button. On the right side of the title is a sticker that says the same thing. I mounted that on printed paper. Then on each side of the whole title I put pink buttons. On the bottom of the page I used circle cutouts, put two eyelets in the middle and tied yarn floss. I was trying to make buttons. I hope you can tell.

I am so into buttons. Every summer when we go up to the in-law's cottage, we go to a local pharmacy/Ben Franklin store and I go right to their box of buttons. They sell 5 batches for a dollar. I think of all the pictures I have taken and start rummaging through the box. I am in heaven.

This layout is about visiting Grandma and Grandpa. I had mounted the journaling on blue paper. I left enough room on top and bottom so I can put eyelets and yellow yarn floss. I put a photo behind a cutout and mounted it on yellow and blue paper. Then mounted the other two photos with yellow paper. On the left side I used precut printed paper and measured and cut the yellow paper and arranged on the layout.

Sometimes it takes me a half hour to an hour to think up a simple idea, but once it is in my head, it takes only 10 to 15 minutes to do the layout. If I can't think of anything, I go to my magazines or books.
Well, late this morning it was snowing, but after a while it went to rain. I was happy it was snowing, but after the rain, it was just gloomy weather. Yuck.
Well, tomorrow is Lindsey's last day of school for Thanksgiving vacation. Wednesday, I am able to sleep and stay in bed. Yeah!!!!

Love the layouts! I'm going to have to re-visit your pages when if I'm ever able to scrap again! Do you do cardmaking too? I've moved into lots of different mediums since I started cardmaking. I had been working on trying ot get Lillian's first year done, but I ran out of pics and just haven't gotten more printed. Now she's two!!! UGH
