Scrap day!

Today I scrapped at The Scrapbook Shop with Jing-Jing. It was interesting to see what it was like for her to put together pages based on design team materials--cute cute cute pages! Also fun to chat about companies we like and the publication and design team world. Scrap-wise, I made my goal and started working on my Christmas mini-album and dug into my Studio Calico kit. I'll post those when I get done.

I finished this next layout at home, instigated entirely by my son Dominic. He's my biggest fan and loves to look through his albums. The other day he found a page I'd made when he was a grumpy three-year-old about things he hated; when he saw it, he asked me to make him a page about what he loves. He sat me down and recited what he loves now. Here's the page I made with it, using June's Studio Calico kit and the Sunday Studio Calico sketch:

I love this layout. I wondered if I'd added too much? Regardless, I love the spirit in the colorful papers. The photos were leftovers that hadn't been scrapped; I trimmed them up.

Hopefully Dominic will be impressed too.

And that layout, holy buckets, it's THAT much more brilliant in real life!!! I pity those who don't get to see it up close and personal! Lol.

Love the pose!
As long as Dominic likes the LO, that's all that matters! It's (as we say in Maine) wicked cute.

Not too much at all--since there's white space in there, too, it really doesn't look busy to me! Fun colors! Also, I got the flourish and love it--thanks so much!

Oh how I envy you getting to go to crops with online scrappy friends... .
Isn't it great when your kids love their scrapbook albums? My DD loves hers too.
I love that he "ordered" a LO according to his specs.
Isn't this hobby just great?
