Hospital Crush Layout

I'm finding that my Crush book is getting me to scrapbook some things that in the past I wouldn't have and this layout is one of them.  The last several months I had some challenging health issues resulting in three visits to the ER, many prescriptions and one emergency surgery (thus the belly shot, sorry you have to see that but I did want to capture all five incisions and the resultant bruising).

I used some Flip Flaps on the first page where I took pictures of the awful sores I had in my mouth, because I wanted to have them but not be in your face.  I used some decorative elements as clips to hold the Flip Flaps closed unless you are really daring and want to see the pictures.

I'm really glad to have these experiences behind me and I am actually glad to have scrapbooked something that isn't a fun memory but was definitely a part of my life.

Photos on Pocket Scrapbooking Cards

I had a bunch of miscellanous pictures of my daughter that I wanted to scrapbook and after thinking about it for a little while, I finally decided that I wanted to put them in pocket pages.

Pocket Scrapbooking is kind of new for me, but I am really enjoying it!  I wanted to try putting photos on the decorative cards instead of filling all the pockets with photos only.  I started with the pictures I wanted to scrapbook and then picked cards that I liked from the Chantilly Picture My Life set.

Some of the cards had decorative elements that I wanted to be on top of the photo, so I just used an x-acto knife to cut a portion before tucking my photo under it.  I'm really pleased with how they all turned out.

Build-a-Bear Digital Layout

I just love going to Build-a-Bear and I took my grandniece on her first bithday.  Using the Animal Crackers digital papers on Studio J were the perfect colors.  What a fun day and I think the layout turned out just as fun!
