scrapping up a storm!

A long weekend meant lots of time to scrap--I finished 8 pages. I finally dug into the Holiday Class I was taking from Tiffany Tillman and fleshed out an idea for recording the words Elle knows.

I scrapped our fabulous family pictures from Lynette, using 2 templates from Tiffany's Holiday class and the Oh Joy kit by Paislee Press for the class. I loved being able to use some of the funny shots that we didn't frame but still definitely tell the story of that photo shoot!

I scrapped some of our holiday traditions--the visit to Santa(with the picture by Casey Dittmer) and our Christmas card for this year. Again templates from the class and the Oh Joy kit by Creashen that we got for the class.

Some more of our holiday traditions--Christmas morning--with both sets of Grandparents--even in the same outfit!!

And finally catching up with her 18 month page, again a template by Tiffany and a kit by Misty Cato called Skip with Me (part of a DigiFiles release). I wanted to make an alphabet page and record her words so far and then hopefully add to it every 6 months or so..

I love scrapping with templates, there is no way I could have gotten all this done without locking myself in a room for hours which is impossible with a toddler. My scrapping was broken up with meals, blocks, baby play, naps, snacks, mini temper tantrums, and all that jazz!

Pinterest to Reality {Spice Rack Bookshelves}


we love them! I had my sister buy me 6 and we only hung 2 due to our space and we also found that in order to pull books out you have to have a significant amount of space between them and she isn't that tall yet. And they are like 4 bucks a piece!
because this is a frequent sight at our house--now she can find books easily and her favorites are in easy access. And yes my 18 month old still fits in her Bumpo chair and loves to sit in it.

And when we build our dream house and have a family room like this


part of the walls will be our book display using these shelves!
