Personal Scrapbook Layouts

I hate to admit this, but most of the scrapbooking I've been doing these last few months has been strictly class related. I haven't been very good about making the time to tackle my own personal pages. In my own style. Without trying to make the LOs appeal to the students . Or worrying about budget concerns.

Well, a couple Saturdays ago I went to a 14-hour crop with some girlfriends (awesome, I know!) and gave myself a license to create in my very own personal way. And can I just tell you, I've been on a roll ever since. My creative juices are flowing and I've been so excited about scrapbooking again, that I've been working on pages ever since.

So, since I recently posted about my recent class layouts, and promised to share my personal ones as well, here they are. Remember, you can click on any of them to see them bigger.

Playing a nice game of tag on Easter Sunday

 "Home is where your ♥ is"
And Scott is without a doubt, my home!

 "Life is bliss"
Beautiful girls cooling off on a hot Summer day

"Live out loud" 
He's the next big stud in town

They are "My Heartbeat"
Trust me on this!

A nice day at the park

My girl flying

 "Your Smile"
It literally melts my heart. Every. Single. Time.

  "Boys and their toys"
Being a boy is a dirty job

Yummy girl. Yummy cupcake. Enough said!

So there you have it! Aren't they fun? I'm really excited about this coming Saturday's 12-hour crop at Eclectica in honor of National Scrapbook Day. Hmm, I wonder if Hallmark has picked up on that little gem of a holiday yet. Anyway, If you haven't signed up yet, I think you may still have time. Personally, I'm hoping to be able to get a lot of layouts completed in the midst of all the talking, eating and shopping that we do. FUN!
