First off, just want to say - April, already? Really?
Moving on! :) I don't do them very often, but I do make two page layouts.
Or maybe I don't share them as much because I find them harder to photograph. They always look a little wonky and off balance to me :)
But I do like working with a bigger space sometimes when I have lots of photos I want to scrap and I just don't want to make it a mini album.
I actually did a series of two page layouts two summers ago when Evan and I had "Field Trip Mondays". Erin went to a Mom's Day Out program one day a week. So on that day I decided to take Evan places that weren't as easy to go with Erin in tow. That way he was able to focus on more age appropriate areas and we also had some special one on one time together.
For the first Monday, he wanted to go to the Art Museum. But silly me forgot that it wasn't open on Mondays :)
Thankfully the Science Center is in the same park, so we headed there instead.
It was a fun trip and we saw so many things. I think he spent at least 45 minutes alone at the erosion table. Something we definitely could not have done if Erin was there. I used the Orbit line by Crate Paper for this layout and I think it worked pretty well.
Looking at this layout just makes me smile because the trip was a really good memory for both of us :) And finding it hard to believe that it has been almost two years already since that summer. If I didn't scrapbook, I think a lot would be lost for me. I can barely remember some days what I had for lunch the day before (lol) Let alone what we did two years ago! :)
Look for more two pagers in the upcoming weeks. I think I'm ready to show a few more of the ;)
For the Family
I know the last few photos have been of Erin, but I find myself spending more time with her these days. With Evan at school full time or doing things with Mike, I don't have to many photo opps. But at least he is the main focus of the layout today! And truthfully, I have just not been taking that many photos with the big camera lately. Mostly using my phone to snap photos :)
I'm sure with Easter coming up and all the fun Spring activities we do, that will change soon though :)
