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.
- Design 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.

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!
Today the boys sang at church. I love hearing the sweet voices of the children lifted up in song.
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!
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.
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!
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!
Recently the boys decided they were ready to watch Star Wars. So last weekend we had a movie marathon. All of my boys were so happy!
Just one more week left to go! Gonna keep trucking along over here until this project is complete!
