2011 Progress

I have a few more layouts to share today as I continue my goal of completing our 2011 chronological albums. The INSPIRATION for this first layout came from a sample layout in the old BPC 2011 Creative Crop.

I especially like the look of the lace border and the button embellishments on this FUN page.

This second layout is a simple design showcasing photos of a visit from my cousins from out of state.

I created two 8 1/2 x 11 pages to showcase photos from Christmas Eve. These pages will go back to back in an 8 1/2 x 11 page protector, which will go in the 12x12 album as I enjoy mixing page sizes and styles within each album.

As usual, I am scrapping as INSPIRATION strikes rather than in chronological order, so these Christmas photos are not an indication that I'm nearing the end of the list of photos and stories that I want to add to our 2011 albums. However, they do signify that I'm making progress and checking items off that list!


  1. Seeing the doily on the first layout reminds me that I thought of you today when I visited a lovely little paper crafting store near my daughter's. They had a big selection of different colored doilies. You're making great progress on these layouts---love the Christmas Eve layout; what great photos of you and Robbie!

  2. I love that lace border!

    And yes I'm right with you on scrapping as inspiration strikes

  3. Beautiful layouts! Nothing wrong with scrapping when and in the order that you are inspired!

  4. You are making lots of progress, and I'm loving all the red on these pages.

  5. You go girl! I love the top two pages especially - they really highlight the photos but have fun embellies, too!
    I like Amanda's Scrapbooking blog for page inspiration. I"m hoping to work on her April sketch later today.

  6. I've been following your lead on getting layouts off that list! I'm currently working on Easter layouts from the last 5 years! :)


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
