My first layouts for Simple Scrapper

I have some exciting news: I am now a design team member for the wonderful scrapbooking site Simple Scrapper! I completed my first pages for the November gallery using sketches and a story starter. I had such fun making these pages, and I found the sketches and prompts truly inspirational. Here's the pages:

A page about my foot trials this year. Since June, I've suffered from plantar fasciitis and had to give up running. I still hurt, so scrapbooking about it made me feel a lot better getting it all out. And spending this whole weekend at a scrap retreat made my foot feel a lot better too! I'm trying jogging again this week. Turkey Day 5K, I've got my eye on you. (Note: the Haflinger tag fell off my shoes, so I put it on the page. Commemorating the most money I've spent on shoes in my life. But it helped, I admit grudgingly.)

Here's my next page:

I turned the sketch into a two-pager to celebrate the apple orchard we went to; I had a lot of photos, more than I could fit on one page. I used a lot of older papers for this page, one of which is Scenic Route, I believe. (Remember them? Sigh. They were terrific.) Here's some close ups:

I love randomly stitched photo frames.

I used this embellishment cluster to cover up a little kid on top of the haystack. Plus to balance the page. Here's page 1:

And page 2:

Your boys are no longer little. They strike big kid poses.
