Sean Joseph has arrived!

Sean arrived two weeks early and 10 days after my last post. He was born on April 23 and weighed 7 lbs 6 oz and was 19 inches long. Needless to say I have done very little scrapbooking this summer! Just four pages for Sean's scrapbook and here's the first page:

I'm going to try to get back on track once school starts in a couple of weeks. Until then I'm going to enjoy time with my kids!

It's a snow day! The kids didn't have to go to school today because we have about 4" of snow on the ground. They are lovin' it! I was hoping to get some scrappin' done today, but I'm not sure how much now. I did five pages the other day, but that's about the extent of it. Here's one of my favorite layouts done recently:

Yes, it's another fishing layout, my boys love to fish! They are lucky enough that their dad works in the mountains building custom log homes and they get to go to work with him once in a while and fish. I got this kit at As you can see, it's one of the cutest kits ever for a fishing page!

I'm on a roll again! I got lots done on KC's scrapbook last week. Here's one of my favorite layouts so far. I used one of the new "Growth Spurts" scrapover album templates found at

Well, I'm in the last trimester of my pregnancy and I've been feeling a bit lazy lately. That's why even though I got caught up on my daughter's scrapbook a few weeks ago, I haven't started my son's until yesterday. This photo is one taken when he was a month old. He is the one on the right and his cousin is the one on the left. They were born ten days apart and are still the best of friends.

I'm going to try to commit 30 minutes per day to my scrapbooking. I can usually get about five pages finished in that time. My goal still is to be caught up with all of my kids' scrapbooks before the baby arrives. Can I do it?

I'm caught up! I am now up to date on Bekah's scrapbook. Now I think I'll start KC's-he's my second oldest son. I haven't done a digital scrapbook for one of my boys yet so this will be fun. However, I'm having a hard time getting started. I've been busy lately and next week is spring break so I probably won't get anything done then. Hopefully after that I can get back into the groove and start scrappin!

Here's one of the final pages in Bekah's scrapbook:

WooHoo! I'm almost up to date on Rebekah's scrapbook! Just a few more pages and I'm there :o)

I'm realizing that journaling and titles are half what makes a scrapbook page special. I've found some really cool quotes and titles and purchased them at Digital Scrapbook Place I've found quite a few of them that match the picture and how I'm feeling about it perfectly. In the layout below is one example:

The quote reads: "May your day be filled with blessings as the sun that lights the sky...and may you always have the courage to spread your wings and fly."

I absolutely LOVE this layout-it's one of my favorites!

I'm discovering that even though it only takes about 30-45 minutes per day if I do five pages, it's a lofty goal for me. But I am still getting lots of digiscrappin done and hope to have my middle daughter's scrapbook up to date by the end of February. I don't think I've mentioned it here, but I am expecting child #6 in May! We are really excited! We found out what we're having and it's a boy-that makes it even, three boys and three girls. How much more blessed can we get?

I've finally got free digital scrapbook pages available at my site on my digital scrapbook pages page. There are a few for free and the rest are available for $.99 in a two pack and a four pack.

The following page is one I did for my daughter's birthday party. It will be available for purchase (in a pack of two) on my website hopefully next week.

So, my new goal is to have all of my kids scrapbooks updated before the baby arrives. I've almost got three down and I'll have two more to go. Can I do it? I'll keep you posted!
