My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Are you ready for this?

Are you ready for this?

I actually scrapbooked! Well, it's been a while since I did these layouts, but I finally took pictures of them yesterday to post. In the midst of packing, I came across the huge drawer full of layouts that don't have a home in an album yet. I took a break and took pictures of them (since I haven't figured out our new scanner yet). I really do love to scrapbook, but haven't set aside time to even do it. I am starting to feel like all new mom's do...behind in everything! But I would rather play with Liam than scrapbook and by the time he goes to bed, I am either too tired or have other things to do. However, I am really excited to pull it all out and organize it (again) when we move. Something in unpacking things makes me excited to use it again. Here's to hoping that I stick to that thought!

I was so excited to do this layout. I have created a similar layout for a couple of friends when I was making their baby albums. Now, I finally got my very own hospital bracelet page!


I am totally into chipboard shapes now...that and pop dots are my favorite craze.

I made this size layout copying the sizes from my own baby book. I would have made it a little different if I would have known how they don't do all the measurements every appointment.

I kept a calendar of Liam's first year of life. I wrote down every little detail knowing that I would do something with the information some day. I turned the info into a list form with just the date on the side and then the "event". When I was going through all his pictures wanted to scrapbook, I got really overwhelmed with thinking I needed to scrapbook EVERYTHING. Not every picture event needed it's own page so I came up with this idea...Use the calendar info with some of the random pictures I took throughout that month. It turned out so fun!
More fun chipboard!





I still have a picture that I need to put in that small green space, but I wanted to post this layout anyways.

  1. Yeah! I loved your layouts and designs! I'm so stealing your list idea! Thanks for sharing, really! I've been dying to see more pages you've done.

    Good luck with packing. I love the purging stage of packing. Will I use this...do I really want this still?! I enjoy the organizing, but at the very end, I just start shoving into boxes, haha!

    Sigh, I wish you weren't packing up. We're coming back home and will be in Alpine for 2+ weeks. It would have been rad to have a scrapbook night with you. Okay, awkward because we don't know each other in real life, but cool for me to say I scrapped with you!

  3. Very cute! I always use your layouts as inspiration to do mine! Question. Do you guys still have the hard drive that Mark gave to Ian? Maybe when we are up in Salt Lake next week we could stop by and grab it.

    and i absolutely love how you have done the sheet for each month with each day to record stuff! i try to stay on top of recording things but always get behind and then forget exactly when they did things! i wish i would have done this with emily since she was born! maybe i will start now in her 8th month...
