So here's the last layout I completed this weekend. It's not super creative or over the top special, but it's done and I'm satisfied with it (although don't put it past me to revisit layouts in the future to make updates and additions). In 2004 we took a fun one-night tent camping trip (we've since upgraded to a pop-up!) with the kiddos. They had a ball since they didn't have to do any of the work. This is my son's album so I focused on the fun pictures of him. For this I used the Simply Scrappin' Kit called Out & About (retired) which has lots of outdoor themed stuff and is perfect for our family and for boy pages too!
Next up- something I've been working on in my spare time for quite a while now. I am finally to the point where I can share it, although I have plans to add to it and share those maybe even later today. This is a Cookie Sheet Perpetual Calendar!
I've always wanted to try this once I saw them on Splitcoast. I even had my DH make a special trip to the store to buy the cookie sheet for me (mine look hideous!). Anyway, I used a Modgepodge-type stuff to adhere all the layers of paper to the sheet. The numbers (yes, I lost my 2) and all the special days are on magnets so they can be moved and arranged. I did the basic calendar layout with days of the week on my computer and just printed it. So much easier than measuring and drawing lines for me.
This is all adhered on the backside so the other side has a storage area to hold all the extra months and special events magnets. I've used the old paper pack called Spring Flowers as it matches the earthy tones in my kitchen and the rest of my hosue better than anything else I've got.
I am going to work on more of the "extra" magnets to mark birthdays, holidays etc. today. I have some on the bottom and on the back right now, but I have a list of ideas for more I came up with last night. Once I get a bunch done I'll photo those and upload for you to see. Thanks for stopping by today!
