Some Scrappy Layouts!

I have finished 1 scrapbook page since I started sewing in January-ish. I get obsessed with things and only want to focus on them so I have set scrapbooking aside for a few months. However, a few friends and I had planned on getting together at Archiver's yesterday to scrapbook so I put the machine and fabric away and got out my Cricut and paper!

I finished two layouts before I went to Archiver's.

Another t-ball layout of my nephew. You will be seeing lots of them as I went to all of this games and plan on making a one pager for each. I used Boys Will Be Boys for the baseball bat and All Sports for the title.

I also finished one from a Zoo Date that I had with my husband last fall. I adore the zoo so we went and left our cell phones in the car and greatly enjoyed our day together! My mom and sister picked out this really cute paper for Christmas and I love it! It even matches my pink hoody! I used Zoo Day for the title and Create a Critter for the lion's head.

While I was at Archiver's I worked on laying out pictures and papers and knew I would embellish and Cricut cut things when I got home so I didn't have to lug my machine with me. I finished 8 pages while we were there--we were there for 6 hours--that is not a very good record! I did walk around the store several times looking for the perfect shade of purple for a layout so that took up lots of my time!

Anyway, here are two that I finished titling and such when I got home last night.

The first one is of my niece playing with her bubble machine in the yard. It's a simple layout without a lot of embellishing (as most of mine are!). I used Makin' the Grade for the title and I also embossed the words with a Sizzix bubbles folder.

And finally, another one of my silly niece rolling down the little hill outside of our door. That hill has provided so much fun for her! I used Martha Stewart Birthday Cake Art for the title and kept it simple. I flipped a sketch from a book and realized that I should have centered that background paper but I didn't! Oh, well!
I have several other layouts that I need to embellish and it is my goal to get them done today and tomorrow, but I have to go back to work on Tuesday.
