Monday's Highlight: Manatees by Brenda

Made with SOJulyTemplate2, Little Boys from January's Digi Files, and Kristin Aagard's Sparkly Winter Alpha
I went browsing my February facebook group album last night and saw some gorgeous pages. This one caught my eye. It's from Brenda H. I love how she worked the blended photo into the background paper. The wavy paper adds to the 'water' feel of the page. I love the little pop of yellow that the tickets add. Plus I think the story behind the photos is great.

She won this week's Gallery Stand Out! Make sure to share your pages in the facebook group February album and you could win next week's GSO. There's a $4 coupon up for grabs.

Have a happy Monday!

BYOC: Hearts to Love and Strips of Fun Templates

It is Build Your Own Collab time, where you can pick and choose papers, elements, alphas, templates, etc. to make a collection with your own favorite coordinating pieces. Liz has two template packs that coordinate with the February BOYC. They are at least 20% off through Sunday February 7, 2016. If you purchase more, you automatically receive even larger discounts.

Hearts to Love Templates has a variety of designs with lots of hearts and lots of different photo presentations.

Strips of Fun Templates also has a great variety of photo options. And if you love playing with paper, this set will be fun because there are all kinds of paper strips - building up borders and forming bold iconic shapes.

Amanda used the Strips of Fun to scrap about her cute kitty.

Christine had fun with patterned paper in this page about a fun day at the park, using Strips of Fun Templates.

And here are a couple of layouts from the Pollys using Hearts to Love Templates.
This one is from Carrie.

This one is from Keela. I love how she 'stitched' the hearts.

And the winner from Wednesday's giveaway is....Katilyn E! Congratulations.

The last week of July included a lot of game playing, the end of basketball season, playing music for church, gymnastics contests in the house (which included a family pyramid), school work and a silly skit from the girls (you have to watch the videos). It was a pretty awesome week.

One reason I love scrapping these weekly pages is because it forces me to sit down at the end of the week and take a look back on what we've done. Even in the busiest times or even monotonous (talk about laundry, cleaning and cooking 3 meals a day) times it reminds me to find joy in every single bit of it.  I really do find joy in all of it (most of the time!). When you look at my pages I hope you can see what a joy my family is to me. I think when my kids look at these pages they will be able to say, "This is my family. This is what we were/are like. I love my family."
