January 2010 scrap challenge...4 down, 6 to go!

I am soooooo far behind on my photos! Are you like me? Do you have shoeboxes full of photos that deserve to be archived for all time? I decided to challenge myself this year by joining a monthly scrapbook challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers (link on the right). I have to set a goal each month, then post my work. It is really helping me to stay focused!

I am working on a school album for each of my kids. This week I finished 4 pages for my son, and as you can see by the dates, they are from 2005! I'm only a few years behind schedule! Oh well, I'm actually glad I waited, because I got to use the Felicity paper kit which is this month's promotion from CTMH. It is perfect for the preschool layouts because Shane's favorite color is orange and it coordinated beautifully.

This is the first page of the school album. I left spaces to add photos each year, with the cropping dimensions noted in the last square so I don't have to measure every year. I have used CTMH My Reflections 'Notebook' Level 2 paper pack and My Stickease for this layout, and My Acrylix stamps from the September Word Puzzle set. I just love how CTMH products coordinate.

These are done with papers from CTMH Felicity Kit. They are only available until the end of January! You can find them at my CTMH store link on the right, or you can go to the National Papercrafting Month link on the right and leave a comment for a chance to win a free kit every day this month! The papers in this kit are beautiful, and the diecut page shapes are truly unique.

I am spending the rest of today in my craft room scrapbooking, maybe I'll finally
get these school albums caught up this year!


  1. Hey, suggest you take a crack at doing this for your fav niece and nephew :) Their mom sucks at this kinda stuff

  2. Gorgeous layouts (but how can you go wrong with a cutie pie like your subject?) Thanks for playing along with H2H!

  3. Oh my gosh, I love your School Days layout!! It's beautiful! I have a tough time using Notebook for a boy despite the blue options, I love how you used it with the Stickease here!!

  4. LOVE these pages!!! You wouldn't have any extra pages/kits of this laying around that I could buy, do you? I LOVE THESE LAYOUTS! I hate that I missed that cute ruler and tag stuff! Super cute title page! :)
