Add some humor to your layouts

Okay, so hunting is NOT my thing.  But being married to a Marine and having three boys in the family its something you just have to go with.  Of course I want to scrapbook those photos of my nature boys, but who says I can't show a little sarcasm and humor along the way.  Take this layout of my guys last winter, the pride and smiles were just screaming, I mean screaming Elmer Fudd to me!  Remember your take on the memories are just as important as the memories themselves.

Studio J layout of Old Town

I have to say with Studio J I find that I enter 100 times more journalling into my layouts; which is what this is all about the story.  I also find that with the ease of adding more photos I put more interesting photos into my layout that help share the story as well.  Take for example the statue photo on the left page, I doubt I would have traditionally printed that photo, nor the sign photo on the right page.  Both add a great deal to the story though.  Just another reason I love Studio J!

Reading with Daddy Studio J layout - Scholastic

This is what scrapbooking is all about!  I love these photos of my guys reading! 

Fun technique to note: I didn't think a title was necessary seems pretty self explanatory but wanted something to express the emotion.  I "googled" Parent reading quotes, and on the left-hand, bottom page found one that perfectly fit!  You don't have to re-invent the wheel.

Free Crop for local So-Cal friends

I just wanted to send out a reminder about the FREE crop night Tuesday 12/04 from  6-9:30 at Oceanside Community Church.  Bring whatever projects you need to work on this holiday season. 

Whether you want to get some cricut work done, photo gifts, or holiday cards addressed tomorrow will be the perfect setting to get it all done.  Tomorrow night is 100% free, I will be having the holiday jar out taking donations for Operation Smile.  I'm so proud that our group has paid for a surgery to give a child a smile all on our own over the past year.

I am looking forward to seeing everyone.  So I know how many spaces to clear please RSVP.  See you soon.
