LOAD512 Days 12-16

I have been keeping up.. I promise! I just have not been good about posting the layouts here. I have been using a lot of the October Afternoon- Sidewalks collection and the Simple Stories - Fabulous Collection this LOAD. I think that I will try to use every bit of the two collections during this challenge.

Day 12 - Valentines Day 2010. Horrible lighting but cute pictures!

Day 13 - Bowling Fun using more of the October Afternoon - Sidewalks collection

Day 14 - Megan's 1st grade photo using Simple Stories Fab-U-lous Collection

Day 15 - Spring using October Afternoon - Sidewalks collection

Day 16 - Lauren's pre-school photo. This layout will go next to the one of Megan above in the album

LOAD512 Days 10 and 11

Day 10 - Missing Emily. I used the same supplies as the Bubble Fun page since this photo was taken on the same day and will likely face the other page in the album. I added my fav. Martha Stewart butterfly punch and some washi tape and bling.

Day 11 - Observations of homework time. This layout took me forever to do! Well over an hour at least. I struggled with it until I decided to just stick stuff down and not think so hard about it. After that the clustering helped to pull the photos and title together much better than I had thought.

LOAD512 Days 7-9

I have been keeping up, I promise! Apparently I have been on a kraft and inking kick this month.
Day 7 - Another layout using the Simple Stories Fab-U-lous Collection by Memory Works

Day 8 - I am not done with this layout. I have a 6X12 page that will go to the left that will have the story of how my Grandparents met and married. I just have to type it up in the correct format and print it out! The sheet music is vintage, and the white flocked damask square is from a gift bag! Prima bling, and I made the flowers myself from some fabric in my stash. The lace is from a thrift store.

Day 9 - October Afternoon and Thickers, with some vintage sheet music as mats under the "bubble" photos.

LOAD512 Days 4 & 5

LOAD Day 4 I decided to make a layout of meeting Evan. Sira was the first one to get to hold him when we went to visit Sarah and Evan in the hospital.

Day 5 I really wanted to play with these October Afternoon papers so I pulled some pics of the girls with J├Ąger. Now I just need to look up the date and add it.

LOAD512 Day 3

Last night I decided to make a page about Sira's 16th birthday party... and managed to fit 11 photos on a single page layout! The bottom right photo pulls out to reveal an accordion type section with an additional 9 hidden photos! Now I just need to figure out how to rig the page protector so that we can get to these pictures easily but still keep the accordion in place when not looking at the photos. I made the mistake of having the front photo flip down instead of up which make setting the layout up for a photo a challenge! Maybe I need to add a decorative paper clip to the side...

Day 2 LOAD layout is done! I used the Everyday Moments collection from Teresa Collins. I love this collection!

Another LOAD begins!

Load 512 started today and I was not prepared! My island was a mess, I was not feeling well, and I had not even pulled out the pizza box that I store my LOAD layouts in until the end of the month! This LOAD will end for me on 5/24 since we leave on the 25th for our cruise (yay!) but I still want to participate!
Today's prompt was to scrap a photo of yourself. I pulled one out that Sira took and pulled out my DCWV paper pad and started layering! I actually had one of Shimelle's starting points sketched out on a post-it on my island so decided to use it as my starting point! After I finished this layout tonight I cleared off my island, pulled out the pizza box, and even started a Mother's Day gift!
