Friday night layouts...

Yesterday was stressful. Evan woke up around 9am; when I went into his room, he had thrown up over everything in his crib, on the floor, and all over himself. Around 4 o'clock, Mark came home from school complaining of a stomach ache, and he spent the rest of the evening getting sick. Me? I haven't felt the least bit ill. Thank goodness. So despite having mounds of laundry to do, dishes to clean, and a house that is unusually cluttered, I spent last evening scrapbooking! I really wanted to get some layouts done and let go of the stress from the day. I would say I accomplished my goal:

This was a layout class I taught MONTHS had the photos on it, but no embellishments or journaling. It feels so good to get it done!

This was the first Page of the Month I did for Crop, Paper, Scissors. Again, photos, but no journaling/extra embellishments. I can finally put it in my "family" album!

This layout didn't have photos or journaling/title...until last night! I taught a "Christmas Layouts" class last November, but just hadn't gotten around to actually finishing it.

Lisa Bearnson's June KOTM...I love the way it turned out! I did some tweaking to the original design, and I used Ali Edward's layout as inspiration.

The boys are feeling much better today, so I am hopefully going to get some work done around the house. Have a great weekend!

Oooohhh that flu got to your family. When the lil ones are sick it is just not fun. Glad to hear you got some work caught up...

Great layouts Erin....I especially love the Christmas one. Thanks for the comments on my blog too!

Kristi O says I got the same camera as you. I love it. I especially love the extra lens I bought. So much still to learn though.

Hope your boys get better soon!

Doesn't it feel good to get some of those layouts caught up? It always makes me feel great. And we got the right leaf blower!
