I'm making my way out of 2007!

I feel like I've been saying that for months, and my pictures from last year just seem never ending. I did 5 more scrapbook pages the other day. Two of them are the only ones that are fully completed (the others are waiting on some ribbon that will be here later today!) I now have Halloween and Leaf Raking under my belt. The Halloween page used the fun color combo of Kiwi, Pumpkin, and Basic Black. My dear friend and neighbor Tanya (one of my stamping buddies that lives around the corner from me) let me barrow her Well Worn Alphabet. This is a perfect alpha set for Halloween pages. I also added some images from Booglie Eyes (retired) along the left side of the photos. They were stamped in white on the Kiwi cs. I tried something I've always wanted to try with my journaling. I number the pictures and listed them on my journaling block. This probably would have been more effective is there were more photos, but I do like how it turned out. I added a little black & white gingham for accent. This second page is celebrating our annual leaf raking day out at the lake. We also took our Christmas picture of the boys this day. There are SOOOOOO many leaves out there. As much fun as we have raking them and piling them up, it is just a lot of work so this fall we are going to hire out the job. I'm sure we'll just go out there to play in them once before our yard guy takes them away. Back to this page...the title is Work and Play and I framed it with a scalloped chipboard frame that is covered with some Fall Flowers paper (retired). My favorite picture is the top left one, I got a great action shot of the boys throwing the leaves around. My next favorite picture is the one of Tim holding Nicholas all wrapped up in his jacket. The baby hated the leaves (you should see the close up of his face in the bottom picture). He was much happier snuggling up close to me and Tim. I accented the page with cut out leaves of another set Tanya loaned me, Autumn Fest (also retired). Now all I have left is Christmas and I'm hoping to knock those out with the new Christmas Scrappin' Kit that is coming in my order TODAY! After I finish off my new catty swaps (I'm in three groups) my mission is to be done with 2007!


  1. Lisa, these are awesome pages! I love the stamped accents and this alpha is great for the halloween page!!

  2. Hello Lisa. I just wanted to introduce myself to you. My name is Rebecca Rodriguez and I live in the city of Whittier in California. I am a new Blogger and added your blog to my favorites. It's rare that I see Scrapbook Layouts. I mostly do pages. I adore your fall page you created here. I'm looking forward to seeing more :) If you would like you can visit my site at www.becluvs2scrap.blogspot.com

  3. Sweet pages Lisa- you are so on a roll! I'm green with envy! I was really hoping to do some scrappin' today but we did some long-over-due landscape grooming instead. Now I've got a killer headache and have to take a kiddo to the doctor... maybe tonight?!?
    PS- Hope you are happily rolling around in your new stuff by now! I can't wait to see all you do with it- mine will be here Wednesday (but not near as much stuff as you!)

  4. Wonderful pages! Those leaf pictures are adorable, looks like so much fun! You are getting a lot done, way to go!!


Thanks so much for your kind and supportive words. I appreciate each of you taking the time to leave some love. Have a great day!
