Structure and Style Templates

Liz has some really fun templates for us today. These are geometry inspired with plenty of circles and rectangles, including one design with triangles and one with a hexagon. The text boxes are dramatic, with angled and curved edges to match the other shapes on the page. If you like dramatic textual elements on your page, these are some great additions to your template stash. They are 20% off through September 24, 2017.

And here are some pages from the team!

This week was somewhat normal with a few extra things thrown in. There was school, music lessons, AVT and co-op as usual, along with dirty dishes, laundry and grocery shopping, but we also went to the fair, celebrated a 15th birthday, handled one night without electricity, and attended a debate. I think the latter are things my kids are really going to remember.

See my kids looking at that scrapbook above? The morning of her birthday it's the first thing they all looked at! I love scrapbooking.

This week I just added text over the photos. I always forget how much I like doing that. What's something you like doing on your scrapbook page but don't do it regularly?

Counting the Weeks by Amber Labau
The weather is getting cooler around here which means more outside play. We hiked this week. Our first 4 mile hike as a family of 9. We were worried that the 3 and 4 year old might have a difficult time but they completed it like champs. We continued the week with a lot of outdoor activity: picnics, 4 square, BB gun, walks, etc... All this in addition to our normal school work and extra-curricular activities, which I managed to take no pictures of, but I think we'll enjoy the memories on this page either way.

I included a little video of Abi hiking the trail. She's come so far in the last year. She could barely walk on a hard, flat surface when we brought her home. Now she's climbing mountains!

Monday Highlight: Adventure Is Out There by Sarah

Artsy Journal Templates 7 by Scrapping with Liz
Kits by Various SSD Designers
What drew me into this layout was the clustering and title work in the center of the page. Sarah's clustering and shadowing is gorgeous. I love her scatters around the page as well. The basic neutral papers with pops of color also make this page stand out. Great job, Sarah!

Make sure to upload your pages to the SwL Gallery on my facebook page. I love seeing them each week, and I frequently pick out a page to be highlighted here on my blog.

My life is pretty much all about caring for and teaching my children. This week's page definitely reflects that. I wouldn't have it any other way!

I had fun shopping the new BYOC at the Lilypad for this page. I'll be using the same September BYOC items for the rest of the month. Shopping the new BYOC items each month for my weekly pages has helped me with consistency and also with creativity. Having some new items each month to work with is fun.

Can you believe we are already on Week 35!

Monthly Blog Challenge - September 2017!

Hello, September!  This is the time of year when my scrapping mojo typically returns and I get antsy to scrap all of the fun we've had over the summer.  Despite having major adventures this summer, I've been feeling nostalgic and combing over old photo folders.  While my kids love whenever a new page is ready for print, they've been a little annoyed that I haven't been scrapping our whirlwind adventures.  I guess I'll just have to keep scrapping!  :)

To keep you scrapping, we have a great layout for this month's challenge.  Donna did a great job creating a double layout. I'm love, love, loving it!
