I really wanted to try something different with this layout. I've seen it many times where a picture is separated into different photo mats. I love the look. I think next time I will try and get the panels a little closer, but it was fun figuring something out that I've never tried before. I just love learning new things and each time I find a new technique or I figure something out, I fall in love digital scrapbooking even more! It's a never ending learning process for me!

Very rarely do I have my picture taken! We went to a great little village near us that has these cute little shops. Behind them is a creek with all these great boulders and rocks to climb. The boys love it there. I decided to let my husband take my picture with the boys! I'm glad I did. My hair is a mess and I'm looking a little ragged, but it's is a memory I want them to always remember!

Ah, we are back to the beach pages! This is the last one for now. I still have lots of photo's to scrap, but thought maybe I should move for a little after this one. All my beach pages came from these kits: Memorable Vacation-Kristin Cronin-Barrow & Zoe Pearn, Almost Paradise-Julie Billingsley, Sea How Much I love you which was a mega collab from different designers and Bermuda Triangle which I got during a DigiScrap Parade. These were some great beach kits! So much talent in those who were part of designing these.

I took a little break from beach pages and decided to do something that made me think of cooler, crisper weather. Although I love Summer, there is something so wonderful about fall. I happen to come across these pictures from our trip to the pumpkin patch last October and decided it was time they got scrapped! This is from a kit I bought last year from Jenn Barrette called the Pumpkin Patch.

My new love is wood grain papers! I have found myself using these a lot lately. I just love how they can go from beachy to country to everything in between. It's such a great neutral! I wasn't fond of this page when I was done with it, it still seems like something is missing, but I had to finally call it finished or I would probably still be working on it!! I love these pictures of my boys on the beach!

I don't know a better compliment to my work than someone saying "I love what you do, can you make something for me?' My wonderful husband asked me to make him a layout so he can hang in his office it at work. He wanted a bunch of pictures of our boys on it. I'm not used to working with so many pictures on one page, but I think it worked okay. I tend to like 1 photo layouts but have been trying to leave my comfort zone and add more!
Back to the beach pages!! I have so many pictures to scrap from our trip I am probably going to be working on these for awhile. But really I love everything about the beach, so I have no problems making pages. I just love all the colors that are associated with the beach and the ocean. I would love to have these colors in my house!

On Mother's Day the boys wanted to send cards and balloons to their Grammy who is in heaven. It was such a touching day. I've been wanting to scrap it for awhile. Recently I have been trying to organize my digital supplies and I came across this great kit that was just perfect for these pictures. This kit was called The View and I think it may have been a free kit that I got, but can't quite remember.
For my oldest son's 10th birthday in March, he decided instead of a party he wanted Nascar tickets. So we bought him tickets to the August race at the Pocono Raceway. He got pit passes and we sat in Victory Lane seating which got us up close to the drivers as they walked out to the stage for driver introductions. It was a great day and I wanted to get it scrapped. I've had this racing kit in my stash for well over a year now, it was nice to get to use it! He was one happy boy at that race!
On July 19th we through my dad a great surprise party for his 70th birthday! He was really caught off guard and actually thought he was coming to a birthday party for a friend of his. It was so much fun. I really wanted to capture the moment! I used a kit from Megan Mullins and Studio Flergs called The Gentleman for this page.

I've decided it's time to scrap our beach trip that week took at the end of June. We spent a wonderful week in Ocean City, NJ. Normally I take lots and lots of pictures, but I put my camera down more often and really just enjoyed time with my family. There are many great beach kits over at Sweet Shoppe Designs. Most of my newer Lo's I have pulled from different kits because they all seem to match. I love it!
