Us :)

A quick layout I put together using a sketch from the owner of My Scraps and More. A really fun site :)
Originally I was planning on trying out for their design team. One of the requirements was to create a layout using the sketch provided. After some debating, I decided not to try out for the team at this time. I think I am going to take a break from design team work for a little bit while the kids finish out the school yeat. I am enjoying the freedom of scrapbooking without deadlines or assignments. And no requirements to fulfill!

But I decided to use the sketch anyway because I really liked it. Along with the new My Mind's Eye papers, stickers, die-cut's and rub-on's I used.

And I really love this photo of Mike and I. It represents a time of freedom and relaxation when we went on a short trip together for our anniversary trip this past October. We really had a great time! And I am glad I have that memory in a layout :)
I will always remember this trip!

  15. Such a sweet layout.
    So nice to document a memorable event :)
    I was always scared to try out for a design team because of the deadlines, as I didn't want it to feel like a job. Good for you for realizing you needed a break and just create for the love of it :)
