Scraptastic April Kit Darlene 2015

This was all about my trip to Sweden. My family is there and I only get to see them every three or four years. It was only my mom and I traveling, what an experience!

Out of the main kits and the add-on, I got 10 layouts with very little added embellishments.

All the layouts are about my nieces and nephews, my goddaughter's baptism and Sweden in general. I still need to do more layouts for this trip! I did two with a different kit and I need to do two more layouts. Lots of Pinterest inspired layouts here.

Scraptastic March 2015 Scrapbook Layout Share

I have one full sheet and a few embellishments left over. I wasn't in love with the colors but I saw everyone else make them work, so I went for it. I got four layouts out of one main kit and I used only a tiny bit of my embellishments from my stash.

One is a going the ballet with my littlest four; my girls getting bangs; a day getting my nails and hair done and a quite layout about my trip to Sweden. ��

Puppy Scrapbook Layout

Our puppy's litter mate was adopted by my best friend from college. We've had two play dates already trying to socialize the dogs. It was really hard to get pictures of them as they were super excited (and fast!)

I used three instagram photos and the Crate Paper Boys Rules paper pack with American Craft Thickers. 




Pug Scrapbook Layout

My 14, nearly 15 year old pug got a terrible bacterial eye infection last month. I was resolved to have a one eyed, deaf pug.  After lots of medication and TLC, his eye is better. He will never have 100% sight in that eye but he can keep it … hopefully forever. He recovered and besides his eye (and being deaf), he's a rock star or pug star as I call him. 

This is a layout for my pugalicious. I used mostly Crate Paper and Elle Studio with Studio Calico and A Flair for Buttons.

Boy Wonder Scrapbook Layout

As you can tell by my past layouts, we are a big animal loving family. We adore pets but that isn't true for my littlest guy. Since he was a baby, he was afraid of dogs. He never had a reason for it and the pugs were here long before he was, but it's something we hoped he'd eventually outgrow. 

Before we got Odin, our puppy, he asked for a "big dog." We were surprised and the timing all worked  out. 

The first few weeks were tough. Odin is a puppy and a lot more energetic than the pugs but he's a great cuddler. In fact, he slept with Five most nights, at Five's request. 

And now, I won't say that Five is cured from his fear of dogs but I will say that Five will cuddle and pet Oden willingly. There are times where I even have to say, "Leave Odin alone" - who would have thought?

I was gifted with the Crate Paper Open Road kit - what a nice present and how cool to get an entire line!! I used the one Kit for this layout and expect more. I plan to use the entire package on layouts. 








February Scraptastic Kit Club Share

I'm just not taking lots of pictures because of the weather and how cold it is. So I set a few pictures up for the sake of Scrapbooking. 

Except this one - Boob Holders Scrapbook Layout. My four year old wants a bra. My friends sent me a sports bra and when I opened the packaged, Nina was certain that the bra was hers. 


I have two puppy layouts because our Siberian Retriever is seriously growing like a weeed and killing lots of his stuffie toys. 





The converse layout was thanks to my 15-year-old telling me how vintage these sneakers were from the 90's. ��

Scraptastic Jan 2015 Layout Share

I only received three pieces of cardstock and while I complained about the colors (the salmon, mint and tan) being repeated, I have to say I felt like I was missing out. I did add in five pages from my own stash for this kit though. I also added on a ton of wood veneers!

The layouts I did are Modern Girl SCrapbook layout; Davinci Center Scrapbook Layout; Happy Hour Happy Heart Scrapbook Layout; Aesop Fable's Scrapbook Layout; and All About That Bass Scrapbook Layout.
