HIYA HIYA!!!  Happy weekend (and happy 3-day weekend to my readers in the states!)  It's a bummer that my hubby has to work this weekend, but it gives me llllotttsss of time to catch up on my To Dos...if I can just stay focused!  Anywho, just wanted to wish you guys a happy weekend.  I'm sharing this post and another post manana too!

Last weekend, I spent some time with my cousin Lexi so I could help her create some scrapbook pages!  I felt so honored and special that she wanted to use me as inspiration to help her create.  It's soooo crazy that at one point I was a beginner myself and now I am helping others document their memories!


Here's a peek at our super messy creating table!  (I took this with my wide angle lens standing on a chair...love that lens so much!)  I really enjoy using stuff from my stash and sharing it with friends.  I still feel like I have waaaayyyy too much stuff to ever use on my own.


In this photo and the photo above (bottom left corner) you can see sneeks of the pages Lexi created!  She finished two pockets AND one traditional layout by the time she left.  HAZZAAHHH!!!  I also sent her home with some goodies (page protectors, fun products to use, etc.) and she had some extras that she purchased when we went shopping while she was here.

She really ended up loving the pocket pages too, which made me sooo happy since they are my ultimate FAV and I think they're great for a beginning scrapbooking.


While she created her layout, I decided to have a little fun and create my own layout.  I can't even remember the last time I did a traditional 12x12 layout (it's probably been about a year at least!).  I used a layout from one of my FAV scrappers, Dear Lizzy, as inspiration.



Isn't it great when you use up your stash, especially old things you've had for a while?  The patterns (paper) are the only new things on my layout.  (Love that paper from Hobby Lobby that Lexi and I purchased...so many fun patterns!)  All of the embellishments are older (mostly Freckled Fawn and Dear Lizzy for American Crafts, I believe) except for the flower pattern on the bottom, which was fussy-cut from the same paper pad.

The photos are leftovers from the last time I participated in Week in the Life (2014) and I thought I would never use them, so pretty exciting that I didn't just toss them!

Thanks for stopping by!

xoxo

PS: I've been considering sharing some posts on beginning scrapbooking lately, so maybe I'll do that and share some of my own tips and experiences!
