scrapbook layouts from NSD

I celebrated National Scrapbook Day last Saturday by joining in a chat at Studio Calico, helping a friend get started in Project Life (yay!!), and of course - lots of scrapping! I have two layouts to share today. I am happy to say each layout only took me about an hour to complete. I made a conscious effort to make decisions faster, and to stop staring at the page for hours wondering what to do. :) It seems to be working for now... I just hope it lasts because the faster I am, the more I can make, and the more cute supplies I can actually use instead of store!

This layout was created mainly with the Studio Calico Bluegrass Farm scrapbook kit. I used what I consider to be my favorite photo of my boys, but I said "may be" in the title because that could change at any moment...

I was happy to have the chance to use some of my Studio Calico Printshop collection for this one. I used an older photo of Mason with our dog. I did some misting with Mister Huey Water Cooler and stamping using some new and older stamps with Color Theory Orange County.

Hope you enjoyed your NSD too!
