My babies did NOT like leaves! But the colors were so beautiful so I tried to capture a photo. Gotta have some fussing pictures, don't you? I used papers and ribbon from Afternoon Delight a Stuff to Scrap Blog Train. I also used leaves, stitching, frame, alphabet and papers from October Road by The Scrappy Kat, Flower Scraps and Growing Pains Scrapped. The font is Pea Muggy's Girl. I love how it turned out and it's much cleaner than my other layouts.
I'll be back later to share my other simple layout. We're going to the in-laws for calzones!

Like I said previously this kit is called Momitude and it's by Miss Mint. I used an alpha from the Stuff to Scrap Morning Solitude Blog Train. The alpha is by Little Red Scraps. I have used this alpha in a lot of different pages. I love that it's cursive. Most fonts and alphas aren't cursive so I'm really excited when I get one! The font is Pea Amy from Font for Peas. I didn't follow the directions precisely (the title was supposed to be ON the right photo and the elements under the right photo weren't supposed to stick out of 2 sides ) but I love how it turned out!

Here's a preview of what her kit looks like, which you can grab at her store at Digital Scrap Cafe. Isn't it beautiful? I'm so glad that I responded to her call because I had a great time playing with this kit. You'll want to keep a watch on my blog because I will probably be making another layout using this kit very soon! Stay tuned!

For the challenge you don't have to use the same picture that you got your palette from but I decided that I loved the picture so much that I would use the picture! Here is my layout.
I did add a couple things that didn't come with the kit. The torn paper edge is from The Scrappin' Cop,the fill in alpha is Fill Me In by Designs by Sarah Bryan, and the font is Curly Gurl.

After I did this page, I decided that I might as well make a very similar page for Natalie using the same 2 kits and the same template. I added a lot more elements because I find that the elements I like to use are mainly girly ones like flowers! Isn't she cute too?

My big project is to make Natalie and Noah each an album of firsts. Their first birthday is coming up soon so my plan is to scrap firsts in their first year of life and make them into a book. If you read by card making blog, you may know that I need challenges to spark my creativity. I have found several digital scrapbooking forums that host a boat load of challenges. I decided to become a member of Stuff to Scrap and complete their challenges. (I've also done another challenge at Go Digital Scrapbooking but I've only done one there!) One of the reasons I joined Stuff to Scrap is that they allow you to post layouts done with kits from outside their own community. I like to use all different items in my scrapbook pages so that was a plus! Both sites (and many others too) have such great challenges. It has really motivated me to get started on the albums for my twins.
One of the challenges I participated in was the Color Challenge. I made this page here:
The papers and the brown bow came from a mini kit from Digi Designs by Nicole; button, ribbon and frame came from a kit by Scraps by Andrea; other buttons came from a kit by This Little Missy; the glitter scatter is from JIC Creations; the curve template is from Delicious Scraps; and the font is from Font for Peas and it is called Pea Missie with a Marker. I just had to scrap these pictures of Natalie! Her faces while eating avocado were just priceless. Neither she nor Noah like avocado still to this day.
I'll be back later to post more layouts that I made based on challenges. I should find some lunch while my babies are napping!
