finishing some layouts

To prove that I do actually finish things, here are some of my recent layouts.

The first two have been sitting around half finished in the good old "in progress" file for longer than I care to admit.

Autumn Leaves at the Botanical Gardens June 2010

Upside Down May 2010

This is a direct scraplift of a layout I saw in a book I borrowed from the library a couple of years ago. I can't remember the name of the book, but the designer of the layout is Tracey Odachowski. Take a look at the fancy cutting out there.

The third layout has also been sitting in the "in progress" file for a while, but only because I found the toilet training scrapbooking paper (yes, there is such a thing!) in my local shop and wanted to make sure I remembered to use it. I wasn't going to use any photos, just the chart. Then I saw a Becky Fleck sketch that had a large photo with some small round photos/embellishments and thought it would look good to use some small photos as well to tell the story of our toilet training experience. The journalling is hidden behind the chart - the blue tab at the top is where you can pull it out.

Toilet Training April 2010

And two more just because I finished them:

Santa 2011

Using some very old s.e.i papers.

I can read May 2012

I saw the pre-cut title for this page and knew it would be perfect for these photos, which were taken on Mothers Day this year. It's based on a sketch from Creating Keepsakes magazine.


  1. Loving the layouts! I don't feel as bad with the knowledge that someone else is as behind as I am in the scrapbooking department! Thanks for sending me your link to come and check out your blog! :)

    1. Thanks Katrina :) The unfinished pile is huge ... dating back to 2007. It scares me a bit. I'm trying to work through which are the "must scrap" photos and which can be left out. The problem with little baby pics is they are all so cute I don't want to leave any of them out!


Hi! I know you hate having to type in the words as much as I do, but I am being furiously spammed, so I've had to reactivate that feature. If you're a real person I'd love to hear from you :-)
