This is a favorite right now....

I'm going back through old photos and scrapping some really old ones, I really want to try and get these done and into albums for my kids.

This I think is my favorite layout so far, I'm not sure exactly why but I just love everything about it.  The photo is of one of my daughters who is now 15, she was just a few months old in this picture.

I'M BACK....with some new layouts.

It's been a while since I blogged, what can I say, life got in the way, as usual.  We had our family vacation last month to Gulf Shores, AL.  I haven't even finished editing those pictures, I took so many I'm sort of dreading it.  I've just been in a little lull lately, with work and all the kids activities I just don't have time for much else.  

Scrap booking has always occupied a big part of my heart and it's another creative outlet for me, I just enjoy it and it makes me happy but I just don't get the time to do it as often as I want.  There is so much inspiration and ideas and trends right now I feel like I want to do it all but I can't of course I have all these notes on things I want to do and just not enough time to enjoy my hobby. I am in a wee bit of a break from photography I was just over loaded so I made the decision to no longer advertise and do strictly word of mouth.  It's fine for me I never intended photography to feel like a real job but it was starting too.  I do have several session I need to put on facebook or blog about but I just haven't got around to it.  My concern was editing the pictures, taking orders and getting them to the clients....everything else is well eh   But I do plan to blog about some senior sessions that I've done here really soon.

Okay so I guess I can get to what my blog post is all about....some recent layouts.

First up, I saw some CHA sneaks for SC and loved them and being the impatient person that I am I cannot wait so I do what I usually do and create it myself using my cameo. I love the happy colors, no neon is not something that I normally would use but these colors look so happy together and it just all fit.

Next I used the same inspiration for the above from SC but used my Instagram font to create something even more fun.  I love how it turned out and I plan to make even more using my cameo, I made a whole list of words, phrases and ideas.  I just need to find the pictures to go along. lol

And last but not least another fun layout, I tend to create my own die cuts, I have a hard time buying things that I do not have a specific use for and often times embellishments will sit forever because I forget about them.  So I try to create as I go and the road signs, banners and all others except for the wood veneer car I created in photoshop and either did print and cut on my cameo or just printed and hand cut.
