Scrapping Like Mad!

     I've enjoyed my subscription to My Creative Scrapbook absolutely beyond words! Something about having  a gorgeous kit arrive every month keeps me inspired to create more consistently, even when I'm using other things from my stash and not just my kits. 

     This week I worked up a couple of school themed layouts. I bought Graphic 45's ABC Primer Line ages ago and finally found "the" photo for it. This layout is about a special themed story my daughter wrote made up of several adorable installments. I created a folder pocket on the adjoining page so I can keep copies of her story as she writes them.

     For the second set, I used some of Stampin' Up's retired Designer Paper (Play Date) to create a couple of fun and bold pages. I love the bold primary colors in this set of paper, and a few Lime Ricky accents I had left over fit right into the color theme.

     The simple, rather unembellished style of these pages pushed me a little outside my usual comfort zone, but  I've kept my resolution thusfar to journal on every page. 

     Hope you all have a wonderful week filled with joy and family!
