Scrapbook Layout Ideas: Paparazzi Mama

Are you looking for scrapbook layout ideas? Today I’m sharing a layout my love of photography, and my kids’ dislike of my photo habit. My boys look at me like I’m a paparazzi mama. And most of the time the photos I get are full on blur as they dive out of the frame, or a hand to the camera.

  • Scrapbook Layout Ideas: Paparazzi Mama http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2lI #inspiration #scrapbookingDesign Inspiration: I loved the strip of patterned paper at the top and the vellum hearts at the bottom of this layout by Melanie Louette. I mixed mine up a bit by putting the color at the bottom and the white paper at the top.
  • Color Inspiration: Since my photo was black and white I was able to just play with whatever colors that suited my fancy. In this case, orange and gold!

I felt like there needed to be something to separate the orange paper and the white patterned paper. Perfect spot for some washi tape! Man, do I love that stuff.

I like creating a journaling block as an extension of the photo. The Project Life grid cards are my go to journaling spot.

December Daily 2014 {Day 21-24}

We are almost a month out from Christmas and I still haven’t shared the last week of December Daily. I finished most of my layouts awhile ago but still haven’t gotten around to finishing Christmas day. Since those photos are still on my big camera I decided to go ahead and share the rest of the week with you.

Day 21:

Every year my boys look forward to getting their videos from Santa. They wait with bated breath to see if they made it on the nice list. :) I just love seeing their reactions!

Day 22:

A group of friends from church went to carol to my Dad at the nursing home. It was such a nice way to honor the holiday with him.

Day 23:

Cookie making time! This year we tried a new recipe. All of us adored the Hot Chocolate cookies. I think Santa did too!

Day 24:

One of my favorite moments of the holidays is singing Silent Night by candle light on Christmas Eve. That truly is the reason for the season!

December Daily 2014 {Day 14-20}

I’ve slowed down a bit on documenting. I still have something for every day, but instead of scrapping each night I’m often scrapping several days at a time. But with the iPhone approach I can still get several days done in very little time. Love that!

Day 14:

Today the boys sang at church. I love hearing the sweet voices of the children lifted up in song.

Day 15:

These photos aren’t from day 15. They aren’t even from December. They were taken at the end of November when we decorated our house with lights. Perfect for using as a filler on a day that I forgot to take pics!

Day 16:

Once again I had no pics for day 16. So photos of our Christmas cards became the filler for this day. It’s still a part of our December whether it happened on the 16th or not. :)

Day 17:

There are only a few more days of school before the boys are home on break. That means it’s time to bust out the wrapping paper and get these gifts ready for the holidays!

Day 18:

Good thing I wrapped yesterday because the boys had a snow day today! Not a ton of snow on the ground, but plenty for them to play and make a snowman!

Every year the boys’ school has a holiday sing on the last day before break. Every grade performs one song. Such a fun holiday tradition!
