a whole hecka lot of layouts...

so... i challenged myself to make 10 layouts by mid-week this week.  i fell short by one.  what can i say??? 3 kids.  all at home.  baseball.  doctor's appointments.  running errands.  friends over for dinner.  i did well!  granted my laundry is in a state of, um, NOT done.  but, after weeks of busyness. it was so nice to just scrapbook!  they are not all super fabulous.  and.  you know what?  i'm okay with that!   so... i will share what i did.  excuse the overload!  (a couple of these are ones i just now got around to photographing!)  :)
okay... this one is from a month ago or so. but, i FINALLY added journaling this week! 
i love, love, love this old pic! the button is an actual campaign button my mom found at my grandma's house! 
using some lawn party from studio calico.  i loved that kit and had hardly touched it.  you will see a bit of it here! 

more lawn party.  love this picture of my mom's aunt.  i am so fortunate to have my mom - who loves old family photos.  she has scanned and put onto disk countless family treasures! 
annnnnd... more lawn party!  and, this is a lift of a layout i made a few weeks ago!  nothing says you can't copy yourself!  :)  still need to add journaling to this one.  just haven't quite formualated exactly what i want to say yet!
not my favorite all time layout, but these are some favorite photos from a large family gathering at troy's grandmother's farm last summer.   
 i do like this one.  :)  using, guess what??? lawn party!  and some of the new elle's studio labels.  LOVE the new elle's! 
this one i made at a crop a couple of months ago.  yep. it got set aside & i forgot to take a photo.  but, i love this one; so, i had to share...

and.  the ones below are just peeks of 3 other layouts i made for the august scrap again gallery.   i'll share those in full a little later!  :)

  5. There are some wonderful LO's there Mandy! Love that you challenged yourself and got SOOOO much done. I don't think I could ever come close to that number in such a short time. I've come to realize that I am slow and if I rush, I won't be happy, so I try to just go with that.

  12. These are all amazing, I especially love the ones with the vintage photos. I did The Sound of Music Tour when in Salzburg last week and jotted down 'these are a few of my favourite things' as an idea for a layout but you beat me to it!
