Scrapbooking helps keep me sane...

Seriously, with 2 two-year-olds and four-year old, I need all the help I can get. Even if it's just 15 minutes to think about something other than diapers, crackers, and Polly-pockets, it makes a huge difference in my outlook!
Especially when it means looking at fabulous summertime pics--it's so nice to be transported to warmer times outdoors while we're stuck in the doldrums of winter!

The layout above and the next 3 are all made using Studio Calico's October (I think?) kit. I am glad I got these pictures scrapped--some good memories here :)

 I had to open my Halloween box to dig out all those pumpkins--haven't looked in there in while!

I used the latest Scrapjack for this one--Kelly Purkey is great inspo--I had such fun lifting her layout! I love the stack of rainbow-colored patterned paper along the right of the pictures--the colors in the SC kit were a perfect match for these fall photos...


And another using Echo Park's Happy Days--I'm going to use up every last piece of that collection!

These look fantastic!! I really loved that October kit from SC- I miss being a member! I love how you printed the photos right next to each other on the first page- will have to try that!!! The second page is FANTASTIC! Doodled border? Yes please! LOVE that last page as well- such beautiful colors and patterns! Sorry it's been so long since I last visited- been forgetting to check my blogger feed (or my using facebook to see who's posting) ;)
