I did this layout last week of Matthew and his birthday cake. I took the journaling straight from my blog - love that! I need to do that more!
My favorite thing about scrapbooking is the way my kids get so excited about it. I have a big magnet board in my studio where I hang my recent layouts and the boys literally freak out when they see a new one up there with them on it! Matthew comes in and starts yelling - "there's me, there's me!" and then Tyler wants to see if there is a new one of him up there too! Then they want me to get the layouts down so they can really look at it up close and check it all out. They are so proud and I love that. It really makes it all worthwhile and makes me realize that even if it is not my best layout ever, they still think it is the greatest. And if it makes them feel special, I feel like it is a success!!
And, just to let you know what I have been up to.... here's this:
...my work table that is literally buried! I was up late last night working on some deadlines and this is what I ended up with! I normally clean up in between every project because I like things clean and organized, but I was working on a bunch of different projects and I had to get them all done so I just kept pulling things out and wasn't putting anything away. It was like a whirlwind of products and creativity and tools and then when I was finally finished I actually realized what a mess I created and for some strange reason thought I would take a picture of it....
Now I just need to get it cleaned up so I can take some good pictures of my studio!!
