Digi Scrap Musings

I'm having a BLAST focusing on creating scrapbook pages again! I've been on a roll and really getting some pages done! My current creative teams are helping with that as are my own 'need' to create these days! I'm feeling inspired ... so, here are some of my recent pages as well as credits for those that have been created by my Creative Team designers in case you want to go check them out. I think I'm going to try to post them here as I create them to make that a bit easier. So, look for that in future posts. In the meantime, here are some of the pages I've done since I last blogged ...

Using some of Miss Tiina's goodies! I've been really doing quite a few no photo layouts in my effort to focus on the STORY and get those stories into our scrapbooks regardless of whether or not I have photos!

Wow! I am soooo excited about being a part of Sarah Bennett's Creative Team. I think she's an amazing designer. She's now exclusively over at Scrap Matters and she has some amazing kits over there.

This layout was one of the last I did before FPD changed ownership. I'm still part of the CT there (and I LOVE IT!). Have you checked out the brand spankin' new FPD??? If not, get yourself over there! Amazing stuff happening over there and its wonderful to see what Michelle has done with the store!

This was my first official layout at Scrap Matters - all about a wine party that Carmen threw when I first arrived in St. Louis. I'd been waiting to find the 'right' kit for the photos (which by the way are not very good but I worked with what I had!) and By Becca's Taste of Provence kit was PERFECT!

Here is another one using one of Sarah's beautiful kits! I don't believe she has it up at SM just yet ...
 This is a layout created for one of the SM challenges and its a new favorite. Isn't this kit amazing!?!?!
This is one of my all-time favorite photos of Elizabeth when she was a baby and this kit was perfect for showcasing it.
 Another of Sarah's amazing kits ... this one is so fun and different! This layout tells the story of Meighan cutting her hair and needing to get a new hair do!
 I'm still doing Weight Watchers but its been a roller coaster ride for me. I did this page on a week when I wasn't having an easy time sticking to the program and needed to remind myself why I'm doing this!!! I think I'll be doing these periodically, to capture the story of my journey in our scrapbooks!

I was so excited when MandaBean came out with a Toy Story oriented kit! It was perfect for all of my Alex photos ...

I came across this amazing photo of my grandmother and my sister at my college graduation back in 1997 and I had to scrap it. I miss her ...

I had to document the fact that I sang this song to the twins almost constantly until, well, now. In fact, I still sing it to them on occasion! When they stop long enough for me to sing to them!!!

 I just ADORE this photo of my grandparents at my wedding. I've been missing them a lot, in part because the kids are asking me a lot about them. As I talk about them, I feel the need to document that story in this layout!

Do you have a cheerleader in your family? Then, head to ScrapMatters - they have a TON of great stuff to scrap those cheer pages!
