a bunch of layouts

Here are some layouts I've done over the past couple of weeks or so.

These were done with a kit I purchased from the crop we had last time from a challenge I won. (thanks Trina!) Smile

Did these last night...

I decided to take on Project 365. So with full steam ahead, I went ahead and scrapped the first week! (I hope to scrap these weekly so I don't get too overwhelmed). I really enjoyed doing this page because I don't typically take pictures of really minor things like when the washing machine breaks or when we get a broken package delivered. haha... I'm also journaling in first person, so I like the change in perspective.

Journaling reads:" 1. Even though I have my Canon Rebel xsi, I couldn’t pass up this awesome offer from the Picture People. It was a coupon for a portrait package, 25 cards, and a $25 fun card for only 10 bucks! I took advantage of the deal to get pictures taken of both kids together , since I always struggle with that. The pictures came out so good!! (I also ended up buying some individual pictures of the kids because they were so adorable!) 2. The motor in the washing machine went. This is the ONLY good thing about renting - I didn’t have to fix it! 3. Grandma Poole bought “Your Baby Can Read” for Brandon for Christmas so we started watching it today. I am a bit skeptical, but both kids couldn’t take their eyes off of it! Cadence read the word “elephant” and Brandon said “dog!” 4. I came home from work to find dinner (goulash and garlic bread) already made! What a treat! (that is a real rarity around these parts!! 5. I was craving cookies all day! So when I got home from work, Cadence and I baked some togther. They were so Yummy!! 6. Brandon said “cracker” clear as day!! I couldn’t believe it! 7. We ordered a new cabinet to store all of our DVD’s online. The box and its contents looked like it had a pretty rough road trip because when Shawn opened the box, the wooden doors were broken!

awesome! I adore that first one. and the dentist layouts are cute. Smile love your 365 layout. I know I can't commit to doing a layout a week, as it is, I decided to post my pictures a week at a time on my blog, and I'm already beind! (thanks for the reminder to take today's picture - I haven't done that yet - YiKES!)

these are all so great...I don't even know where to start on specific comments, since I can't pick a favorite!

Nathan has the same shirt as Brandon does in the "Cracker" picture.

Those are great. I really like every single one. Good job on the 365 page. I am doing the challenge, but just the photo part. I think it is great that you are doing the layouts too!

All these are so good Linda. I love your style so much. I really like the I believe in Santa one. That outfit is adorable that he's wearing.

Can I ask you how that baby can read works? I was thinking of ordering it. Is it memorizing words??? I am doing that already with them, but wondered about this. THANKS!

Love the 365 page! Again, it's so cool to scrap the "little things" that make up the big ones.

The first page is so sweet too! I love the simplicity of it.

Great job on all of them!

oh and I'm going to mail you back the heart monitor. Now that Cohen kicks everyday I don't feel like I have to use it. Wink It was soooooo wonderful of you to let me borrow that!!!!!!! I SO enjoyed it!!!!! Thank you, thank you thank you!

Well, in the Your Baby Can Read Program, the kids watch a short video that shows the word, they are supposed to repeat it, then do what it is. It also comes with some flashcards to practice as well. i think Brandon likes it more than Cadence! They kids get very excited when we put it on. (you're supposed to play it 2 times a day and then practice with the cards). So far it's taught Brandon where his mouth and nose is, to wave hello, put his arms up and down.... (things i could have taught him, but he learned them in no time!) We've only been doing it for about a week, so I don't have any "real" results. The program was $200 plus shipping. (I didn't pay for it, it was a gift from grandma).

I'm glad you enjoyed the heart monitor. That galloping noise is the best sound in the world when you're expecting, isn't it? You are more than welcome! Smile

I love all the LOs, my fave is the 365 one, I really like how you added the little things that happened that week. I am doing the photo 365, not worrying about scrapping them as it has been hard enough to remember to take a pic and post every day, but so far I haven't missed one yet!
