Back To School

This layout is my youngest Son on his first day of school 2008. He's a Freshman in High School now, wow! Since he's been attending Band Camp since mid July, he knows lots of kids at the school already so he feels better about going this year, after all, he's been the "new kid" the last 2 years in a row! He looks so CUTE in his wonderful orange shirt...his favorite color of course!

I got this layout from from a Scrap Sketch website but I was hopping around and can't find it again. I'll update when I do! I also added arrows for the Totally Random Challenge #16. I ended up putting the journaling in the arrows. This page still feels alittle incomplete to me but for now, I'm leaving it as is.

Drive In

These pages were inspired from Inspiration sent to my by my friend Kirstin in our SCS Inspiration (magazine) swap. For the next couple months, we decided it would be fun to share magazines with each other so that's what we're doing. This is from "Canadian Scrapper" Summer Ed. 2007. Very neat book! There are lots more pages I want to scraplift. I wanted to use a few more buttons on the page for the Scrapping Out LOUD! Challenge #6 -- Use Buttons. I always like them on layouts but I'm definitely "button challenged". I did manage to work a few onto my page.
These pages are picts of me and JT on our way to his first time at the Drive In movie. He saw one coming back from Michigan on the turnpike and wanted to check it out. We found out that there is one about 10 miles from our house so on the night the new Will Smith movie "Hancock" came out, we headed over there. We had SO much fun stopping at the store to pick out munchies, we really stocked up, LOL! JT had fun but realized it's easier to be distracted at the drive in and he wouldn't want to see all movies there. Fun movie & fun time.

My Meme

Ever had a moment when your dog was your most favorite family member? LOL! The men in my life are stressing me this week. I love my teen age sons but I sometimes I just want to go back when they were 8 or was so much simpler then, their schedule was my schedule. My Meme dog I've had for 10 years. She's always glad to see me. She was sitting in the chair with me as I worked on this layout! This is her with her favorite toy. This is a layout idea is from the BHG SketchPages Magazine! Very fun!

Fish Story!

This page is for the challenge #9 at Scrapping Out Loud. I love multi-picture pages as you can see by my past posts so this wasn't too challenging for me. What was FUN was that this page completes my youngest son's 2005 Scrapbook! Woohoo!!

The photos on this page bring smiles to me as I know FISHING is one of JT's favorite past times, especially with Papa and cousins. I was so happy they took pictures.
