The first page I'm going to share is of my two boys, Levi and Gabriel, and was taken last summer on a little day trip we took to local tourist attraction, Snoqualmie Falls. It was one of those moments when the two of them were actually getting along and behaving for the camera! If you are wondering, there is a 7 1/2 year age difference between the two... makes for interesting times!! The stamps I used for the layout come from the ODBD sets Never Give Up and Sweet Friendship. I cannot take credit for coming up with the layout... for that I turned to PageMaps because Becky Fleck has some of the best scrapbook layouts to be found. The papers are from a really, really old BasicGrey paper line called Archaic. I was so thankful I had those papers because it made putting the layout together so much easier that I had needed to dig around for matching items.
Cat Sympathy set on the layout. I think I'm mainly dissatisfied with this layout because I placed the two photos and the sentiment too far up on the page and I don't like where I ended up putting the journaling. This page was also created using a older line of BasicGrey papers called Periphery. The papers are really beautiful and I know I'm going to figure out another page to make with them. I'm a bit rusty in the scrapbook department, but I this challenge has gotten me thinking that maybe I need to create some more scrapbook pages. Now... on to the details of the challenge.
