On a happier note...
Since teaching and taking the 2nd of the 3-course reading endorsement series are cramping my fun time, you may have noticed that my scrapbooking ticker is not moving! I finally got this layout done right before school started. I had the idea for a long time, and then I saw a sketch over at the Triple the Sketch blog that really inspired me.
I love the Free Spirit paper pack even though shades of yellow and orange are not really "me." I decided not to put any photos on this title page and rather stamped some images and sentiments of some of the things that we (obviously) do and love. (You can click on the picture to see it larger if you're interested.) I used too many stamp sets to count, but the main part of the title was created with the Chocolate Large Alphabet.
This layout is the opener for our "things" album of my Library of Memories album collection. (The Library of Memories system is the brain child of Stacy Julian over at Bigpicturescrapbooking.com and has totally changed how I view scrapbooking and my scrapbooks.) I can't wait to fill this album up- of the biggies in our lives and of the little things too.
Now to get ready for tomorrow's Birthday Bash card class!
