Hey girls! I hope you remember me! I have this really bad habit of popping in every so often and saying hi, showing a few pages, and disappearing again for a few months - sorry! Hopefully I can be around more now. We won't be having any more babies, no more moving, no more crazy ups and downs in my life, AND I'm definitely scrapbooking more regularly now that our family is settling into more of a routine (sort of)!
I wanted to share some of my latest LOs. As always, these are Valerie Salmon sketches. I am researching some other styles too, but I don't yet trust my own instincts to do pages without a little help
I did this one for my mom for Christmas 2008. These are some of my favourite pics of her (w/me and my sis in the bottom one):
I'm still working through some prints I made of my older DD when she was 5-8mos old. The pics in this LO were all taken within a half hour or so lol:
Fun in the highchair:
Better capture of the colours of the papers, but it washed out the elements:
Cadi in the dress she got as a swap gift:
First time in her new winter hat:
I got an amazing scrapbooking kit for Christmas and did these LOs using it. Sooo much fun!
Early love of books:

My first 2pg LO! A lot of work, but really fun!
Thanks for looking!
I have commented to most of these already on your fb, but they are all so good. My favorite is the 2 page one! It is so great.
I am glad to see you over here. I hope you can post more often!
Hiya! Of course we remember you! Glad you are getting more settled down. It sounds like you've been really busy. Hope you can get the time to post more...love your work.

Yay for getting to scrap amidst all the chaos! I'm impressed!
Love all the pages! I especially love all the lettering you chose for each one.
Hope you can keep scrapping and posting over here.

Thanks girls! I love the sketches I used for these LOs b/c they use pics taken in a horizontal 4x6 (my usual style) but she also does a ton using the vertical 4x6.
MommyCB - The second and 8th LOs are from the same sketch I like that one b/c it allows me to use several pics that have the same importance to me, with the subject basically the same size.
Beth - Aside from the ones from the kit, most of the letters came from a dollar store or Walmart Took a while to decide on them though! That's often the hardest part of a LO for me, finding an alphabet that will work. I really, really want a Cricut!
Angie - Thanks for those FB comments btw! Not even my fam comments on them lol.
MinaAriel - I got them from her blog, http://gotsketch.blogspot.com/ . She also has them all in an album: http://valeriesalmon.typepad.com/pho...hes/index.html
