The Paper Loft Everyday Life Boy Layout

It feels like it has been a while since I have scrapbooked.  I have been making cards and some ATC's most recently.  But, I just printed over 600 pictures at Walgreen's because I had scrapbooked all my printed pictures for my chronological album.  I printed the last few months of 2011!  I find this past year using challenges and sketches has definitely improved my scrapbooking.  First of all you must know, I use the Creative Memories Power Layout method.  I can layout a entire years worth of photos.  One year is usually about 4 albums, I have the albums (not yet in actual albums) stored in 4 iris containers.  When presented with a sketch or challenge I started looking through my "power layout" boxes, as I go through I put the papers and embellishments or just a note reminding myself of what I want to use with those particular photos.  So when presented with a sketch say for one photo, I can go through my power layouts and find such a page.  I don't do too many layouts with just one photo, I take so many photographs and I love each one.  However, this particular event was a cell phone pic taken at Joe's Crab Shack.  It was not a special occasion, just a treat on a cool October evening.

I have used The Paper Loft Everyday Life collection.  You may have noticed my new button, I am a new design team member!  Yeah!  Here I have used the following papers:  No Excuses,  Greener Pastures and both sides of Sky's the Limit and Forward Progress.   I used the Good Times Accessory Sheet and Cosmic Alphabet.  I fussy cut some arrows from Forward Progress and put them on pop dots.








I am entering this layout in the following challenges:
