Week 23/ 52 week challenge

Okay, so I'm really skipping around in my 52 week challenge - definitely not doing it in any order at all. I have all of my pictures set aside for each week, so I just scrap what I feel like scrappin' at the time. It's just for me so it doesn't matter if I do it in order, right??!

I did this layout for one of the color challenges over at SAS. The challenge was to use red, blue, and yellow as the main colors on a layout. I bought this patterned paper at Michaels a while back and thought they would work perfect for this challenge. I used a sketch from The Scrappiest blog (I can't remember which one right now) and just some good old cardstock. I love these pictures of the boys getting along so well together. It's not too often that I walk in to them being so nice to each other. It's no secret that Shane likes to take his frustrations out on Matthew. It feels like I am constantly telling Shane to keep his hands to himself, or telling Matthew to quit pestering Shane. But every once in a while I see them like this. These are the moments I want to remember!

Week 11 of my 52 week challenge and...

one of the layouts I made for a challenge over at SAS's birthday crop last month. The challenge was we had to pick items we would bring to the party. The items represented a scrapbook item - but you didn't know what it was until after you picked it. I chose -for the theme to be a jungle theme -party decorations -making banners - games - scavenger hunt - supplies - napkins - cake - ice cream cake and a mandatory item . For the jungle theme - I had to use green as the main color of my layout, party decorations - I had to use computer journaling, game - I had to use 2 pictures, napkins - I had to use a square on my layout, and the ice cream cake - I had to use some bling. The mandatory item meant you had to use 1 item on the layout 5 times, which was my shamrocks. Since I used the pictures I had for my week 11 challenge, I was able to do double duty with this one!
