A Few Layouts

Well, I missed going to the farm for our spring scrapbook retreat last week. There was just too much going on that needed my attention. Still, I have several pages to share from the LAST time we went at the end of February. Here goes:
"Redecorating the girls rooms" is about the job I did for Stephanie in January 2016. She gave me a budget of $1000 for both rooms. I pulled it off---bedding, windows, art, bedside tables, lamps and knick knacks.
 "Eads Family Vacation" 2016---at the beach.
 I like to have plenty of title and/or end pages ready to go when I start putting albums together. This is another version with washi tape.
This is one of my AYM pages: "Heres one you might like: while searching for our roots, we missed the train!" This layout is about our sister's trip to Italy last spring. Side note: I leave tomorrow for our first sister's trip to the beach.
"Can you tell she doesn't like getting her picture taken?" This layout is about how Jordan frowns whenever you try to take her picture. She's been doing it since she was a baby. I love layouts like this where you can see tendencies through the years all on one page.
This is another one along those lines. "She likes her jewelry" shows Mindy through the years. I have to say, I started it. When she was a baby, I put a little beaded bracelet on her and never took it off!
 Another AYM: "And then I've got to be kidding me!" I say that a lot, but on this layout, it's in reference to Stephanie telling me that she backed my Solstice in to Nicky's car. I told the story of the gas shortage last September. When Steph couldn't get gas, I loaned her the Solstice (the car I've been keeping for an investment and trying to keep low mileage on it).
Here's a close-up of the pocket. It has window where I put the subtitle. It contains my journaling.
This is the layout I did for Karolyn for our round robin: "Little Rascals." Normally, we trade the layouts around every month. When I was the first one to get these pictures, I just knew I wanted to complete the entire layout. I've had these splat stamps forever and have rarely been able to use them. I loved making this layout. There were a lot of pictures, so I used washi tape to make a little flip album on both sides.
 Here's another layout: "Fall Outing" where I used washi tape to adhere lots of pictures. It's my favorite thing to do rather than making the page look too busy.
 "#I'm the Boss" is about me and my little sister, Jeanne. Most of the time, she lets me be the boss---but not always!
 "Sister Style" is a layout about Stephanie and Mindy. I'm doing various sister pages for each of their albums (Sandy's too).

That's about it for now. I haven't done much scrapbooking lately. I miss it!
