Getting Back to Basics

Happy Friday Everyone!!

So I have decided that I am going to start focusing more on making 12x12 layouts rather than mini albums or cards because it is what brought me to scrapbooking in the first place. I have dozens of albums, some started some not, and they are just sitting in my closet collecting dust. To go along with that are dozens of boxes filled with pictures that are not being enjoyed, which to me is the main reason for having pictures to begin with. Of course, I will still make mini albums and cards but for now will concentrate mainly on 12x12's.

That being said, yesterday I worked on a layout of my daughter. The pictures were taken the summer before her senior year. She is now a freshman in college so that is how far behind I have gotten.

I had forgotten how much I enjoyed making layouts. With the mini's I had to stick to one theme and one subject but with the layouts I can switch between all my kids and have different themes. It's actually pretty refreshing only having to do one page and then moving on to the next.

Anyway, here is the layout I made with a list of materials used. I will be posting lots more layouts in the future.

List of Materials:
Patterned Paper- K&Company Classic K Bailey Paper Stack
Pearls- Say it with Bling, Want 2 Scrap
Flowers- Recollections
Charm- Making Memories Vintage Findings
Lace- Stash
Glimmer Mist- Scarlet
Homemade Glimmer Mist- Pink
Font- Cricut Classic Font

Thanks for visiting and have a fabulous weekend!!
