I created this layout in 2009 for my great-nephew's scrapbook that his mom was putting together. It was one of my first times to use a sketch to create a layout. (Sorry I can't remember where the original sketch came from.)
I had planned to create a similar layout for my albums and had these same photos printed and in my 2009 storage binder. I had printed the larger sized photo for my original layout, but decided to use the 4x6s I had on hand to create a layout today. I also used letter stickers instead of cutting the title on my Cricut, simply for convenience as I'm planning to head to bed early.
I'm glad to finally complete this layout for my Family & Friends LOM album. This is only the second time I've made duplicate (or near duplicate) layouts. I'm not sure which one I like the best - what do you think?
In the midst of my cleaning frenzy today there were several bright spots. First, a package arrived from UPS with my order from Scrapbook.com. I needed some more page protectors and then all these letters stickers and a few papers jumped right in my cart with them! :>)
Later another package arrived, this one from my sister. A couple of months ago, she had borrowed a book from me and was returning it along with some craft kits she had that she thought the children's department at our church would enjoy. And since she was sending a box my way, she decided to include some extra goodies - letter stickers, borders, die cuts, rolls of ribbon, a book for me to read, and some cute photo frames to decorate! Thanks Brenda!
I also enjoyed a nice visit from a friend who stopped by to deliver some Mary Kay products I'd ordered last week - the Satin Hands kit. I enjoyed the visit and now I can give my hands some pampering after all that cleaning today.
