First Layout Finished in 2011

Hi Everyone! The beginning of the year is always a great time to reflect on goals. I ended 2010 in a little bit of a creative ditch and I really wanted to redirect my crafting goals for 2011. After a lot of thought I kept coming back to one thing... I want to scrapbook MORE. I think I did one layout in 2010 and that is just not enough. Not even close. My kids are growing so fast and their memories and my memories need to be scrapped. No question about it. So, I bring you my first layout finished in 2011.


My favorite scrapbookers are Laura Vegas, Nichol Magourik, Jennifer McGuire and Robyn Werlich. You'll see a lot of their influence on my beginning pages but I hope to develop a style all of my own as I progress. But what's most important to me is that I'm scrapping memories.


I created snowflakes for my layout with a few punches that were stamped with text from Penny Black's Crystalline clear stamp set. I also stamped a few snowflakes from the set with Versamark Ink around the larger embellishents to create a flow across the page.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Oh my gosh! He is so cute! Look at that face! One of my favorite things when my boys were little was discovering the world all over again through their eyes. His fascination with the snow is priceless! You've created a layout that is so perfect for the photos, Ashley! Love this! I look forward to seeing more of your pages!
