3rd Grade Buds

This is the only layout that I managed to do this week. It was my first week back in school and I spent most of my time in meetings and working on getting my room ready for the new year. My goal for now is to get at least one layout done a week but I'm hoping for more.

For this layout I used the August template by Kellie Puddy at Color Line Design. All papers and most elements are from the Dingy Boy kit by Little Dreamer Designs. I used Teriann Hanks’ It’s a Date Addon Schooldays. The fonts used are 2Peas Frazzled and 2Peas Burlap.

The journaling reads: I took this photo of Alec with his friends Cory and Nathan at the end of April when they came for a sleepover.

Guilty Look

I did this CASE of Krista’s layout for the weekly Lift with a Twist challenge. Almost all of the supplies used come from Gina Cabrera. The file folders (Office Essentials Folio), the notebook paper inside (Office Essentials Notebook Paper) and the flower and button embellishments (Sweet Summer and Summer Blooms). The bird doodle is from Michelle Underwood’s That Smile page kit, the notebook paper tucked under the photo is from Just Journaling by Teriann Hanks, the date stamp is from erecinella and the journaling lines are by Fernlili. The font used for the journaling is LD Antiquated.

The journaling reads: I just love this cute little guilty look on your sweet face Hannah. I caught you red-handed going through my purse. It reminded me so much of when I found your brother opening presents under the Christmas tree at the same age. April ‘06

Easter Basket

I used Template # 1 in Teriann Hanks’ Flower Simple Sets, Scrap Artist’s Journalique kit papers and embellishments and the journaling font is Curlz MT.

The journaling reads: Hannah loved her Easter basket this year. It was too cold for her pretty new dress though. April 8, 2007.

Anticipating Fall

I did this layout using Eva Kipler’s Template for Aug. 1 –15 at Most of the supplies I used are by Weeds and Wildflowers – tan swirl paper and stamp from Discovering freebie, peach and polka dot paper and ribbon accent from Welcoming Spring freebie, and corner doodle from Celebrating Color freebie. The orange paper (adjusted slightly) for the file folder is from Shandy Vogt’s Not so Simple Solids and the notepaper is from Teriann Hanks’ Just Journaling and the brown felt alphabet letters are by Shelle Pukas. The fonts used are 1 Bean Sprout DNA and American Typewriter.

The journaling reads: August 6, 2007
I ran across this photo on my computer this morning. I was looking for a picture of one of the kids to scrap. I was instantly taken back to that chilly November day. It was the first day that was cold enough to wear the new cap and scarf that I had just finished knitting. I had my camera with me that day to take photos of seventh graders to draw their self-portraits from. One of my kids took my picture and I worked on one of myself during this lesson. I remember that it was Dylan that took my snapshot but I can’t for the life of me figure out what I did with my drawing. I hope to run across it next week when I am working to get my classroom ready.

Hometown Days

This is an older digital layout that I hadn't shared here. I'm not sure why but I just neglected to do it. I found it while I was looking for the 3 layouts that I got done last week that I haven't posted.

I used Eva K’s template at Digital Freebies (June challenge) for the overall design. The blue background paper is from Jaana Saker’s Heaven and Earth paper pack, the green dot is from Weeds and Wildflower’s Coming Home Kit, the yellow graph paper is from The Digi Shoppe, The stripe, plaid, blue and pink papers are from Shandy Vogt’s Jumperoo kit, the ticket to Ride stamp is by Seebee’s Freebies, designing on the edge alphabet is by bob, and the font for journaling is 2Peas Chatter and the font used for the date on the ticket is CK Template.

Little Swimmers

I used Template #3 in Teriann Hanks’ Flower Simple Sets, elements and papers from her Blossoms kit, and index card from her Just Journaling kit. Upper Case Doodle Alpha by Lisa Whitney is used for the title and the journaling font is CK Thickness.

The journaling reads: Hannah and her cousin Katie had a wonderful time playing in the pool together. Both girls love to be in the water and they were great playmates for one another. They had two great afternoons of splashing good fun this week. I hope they remain friends as they grow up together. August 2, 2007.

Boy in Blue

I have had such a busy week I didn't think I'd be able to get this week's lift done in time. There was one advantage to my tardiness - Betsy Tuma had her kits on sale today so I was able to buy more with my money than I would have gotten earlier in the week.

I used a lot of items from Betsy's That’s Life kit, along with Amanda Tracy’s Edge Templates, Sara Amarie’s yellow Office Pretties: Lined Notes, a journaling circle from the Day Trip kit by ksharonkdesigns, and Chipboard alphabet by Angela Sharrow. The font used is CK Alpha Swirl.

The journaling reads: Alec spent a lot of time in the pool this summer. It was one of his favorite activities on a hot day, and we sure had a lot of warm days this year. He liked being active in the water, no floating around for this boy. He spent most all of his time swimming under water. He could usually be seen wearing his blue goggles and nose plugs.

My First Layout for Teriann's CT

A couple of days ago I got the wonderful news that I had been selected for Teriann Hanks' Templates and More CT. The My New Car layout from a week or so back was my audition layout. I worked with a template that she had posted for a challenge at today and everything just seemed to flow beautifully. I received the kit that I used, Eva Kipler’s Star 4 James, as a posting bonus for another site and it was just perfect. I tried to talk Alec into helping me with the journaling and he did a little bit. He thought it would be cool if each of the letters of his name went into one of the journaling strip so we made that work.

Other supplies used include All Stars by Ninascraps Designs, and Graffiti alphabet by Bunny Cates. The fonts used are CK Ali Circles and CK Carefree.

Two new layouts

I did both of these for challenges at I really like using templates so I've hunted for freebies since learning to digiscrap. It makes it so much quicker.

Other accents used are Doodled Hearts by I Made This Today, and index card by Lilac Garden kit by Miss Mint. The fonts used are CK Ranch, Ck Ladder and CK Scribbles.

The template is by Eva and all of the papers come from Shandy Vogt Designs Island Woods minikit. The journaling box is from her Vintage Floral kit. The font used is Countryside.
