play time…

One of the (many) fun things about moving has been taking the opportunity to go through all of my scrapbooking stuff…and by “stuff,” I mean everything – from paper and embellishments to tools, idea books, and photos.  I have SO many photos that I’ve printed and tucked away, and then forgotten about, so I have had fun walking down memory lane as I’ve been cleaning and organizing over the last several weeks. 

The photo on this layout is one that I’ve recently rediscovered.  It is crazy to me that I remember this exact day – we had only lived in our house for a couple of months (the one we just moved out of).  Zach was such a little teeny guy.  He loved his crib – especially when he could pull himself up to a standing position.  He would stand there for the longest time just grinning and giggling and bouncing up and down – so content to be in his crib and so excited to simply be standing! 

I used Cosmo Cricket’s Togetherness line to create this page.  I just LOVE the colors in this line – I can’t get enough of it.  On this layout, I was experimenting with the border along the bottom…


I cut several strips of paper from the mini deck pages, then folded them over without creasing the fold, and stapled the top.  I attached all of the folded strips along the bottom and covered the staples with ribbon.


I think if I try this technique again, I’ll trim the cardstock from the base of the layout so the border is visible from the front and the back.


It’s snowing like crazy again today – and even though I would like to complain about it, I’m not going to.  I was able to spend some time outside this morning, shoveling the driveway, breathing the fresh air, and seeing all of our new neighbors wave and smile and they drove down the road.  :o)

  1. the loops at the bottom is awesome. I like the three dimensionality of the layout.
