Memory Keeping:: Layout Share

Happy Friday everyone!

A quick post to share two digi-layouts I’ve been working on and finally finished!

Pumpkin-Carry-WEB-1

I’ve unofficially dubbed this one “Pumpkin Carry”  this photo of my nephew and my daughter makes my heart sing.  Love the two of them together, and they were so little back then!  This layout was a multi-year layout ha ha!  Started in 2015, finished in 2016.

Kit:  Enchanted Woodland Forest   /  Template:  AOAT #2 by Little Feet Digital Designs.

I thought this photo of Saint Chappell from our trip to Paris would be perfect for these papers.  It is an amazing place, like being inside a jewel box!  Wanted to make sure I had really big photo featured for this design and I’m really happy with how it came out.

Thanks for stopping by… More digi layouts in the works, as well as working on December Daily from 2015 and catching up on Project Life albums.  What are you working on this weekend?

 

Memory Keeping:: Layout Share – bright and fun

I’ve been doing a LOT of digi-scrapping lately and I think these are the last two layouts I have to share from the backlog.

Kit for both layouts:  “Little Inner Minds ” from Little Feet Digital Designs.    I just love the fun bright colors of this kit and all those lovely embellishments!

Ski-Like-Crazy-WEB

 

Template:  Vim & Vigor t3 by Jimbo Jambo designs

I loved this template as a way to showcase the beautiful patterned papers from the kit, without overwhelming the photo of Charlie and the girls sking this past winter.  The girls jackets go great with the papers!  (but really didn’t plan that at all hee hee)

Inner-Mind-WEB

Template:  Vim & Vigor t2 by Jimbo Jambo designs

I love this template for all the circular elements.   It was perfect to showcase all the awesome journaling strips and (swoon) badges that come in this kit!  I don’t really make a lot of layouts just for fun, I’m usually trying to tell the story but I took this opportunity to just have fun with making something and I really like the way it came out!

 

More layouts to come, am trying to stay up to date with posting 😉    What are you working on in your corner of the world?

 

Memory Keeping:: Layout Share – using vintage photos

Since last fall, I’ve been on a mission to shape up our “family archives” (another topic for several more blog posts) I’ve been scanning and digitizing, and also doing a little scrapbooking along the way.  The interesting things about using vintage photos from the archives is, I don’t really know the story behind the photos, so it makes story telling challenging.  Or maybe we just let the photos tell the story.

Kit for both layouts:  “Stories of Dad ” from Little Feet Digital Designs.    Janet excels in creating beautiful vintage kits!

LFDD-S.O.D.-Album-cover-WEB

This layout is destined to be the cover page for albums that my sister and I made up from photo albums of my dad as a little boy.  I don’t usually work in 8.5×11 format so it was fun to change it up a little.  No journaling, just the facts about the photos in the book.

The-3-Triggs-Men-WEB

Perusing my digi-stash of photos I found this one of my Grandpa, Dad and Uncle.  This was taken before I was born so obviously I can’t write a contemporary account, so I really wrote about my impressions seeing the photo and the memories of each individual that it triggered.

The journaling reads:  “1961- Clover Hills Drive, Rochester NY Grandpa Triggs, Dad and Uncle Jimmy hamming it up for the camera. I have not really come across a photo of all three Triggs men together. Lord knows, there are enough photos floating around to pick from. I love this photo as everyone is smiling, and it typifies how I remember everyone. Grandpa in his dress shirt and slacks (I never saw him wear anything else, except maybe a short sleeve dress shirt if it got really hot, and always a solid color). Dad in a plaid shirt, and khaki pants (his uniform of choice today, except *gasp* now there just might be a pair of “dungarees” in the mix) no doubt making some pithy comment about the entire situation that has cracked the other two up (still does that to this day). Uncle Jimmy in his flight jacket, which always fascinated me (of course he flew little planes so he needed that warm jacket), I asked him once how I could get one just like it and he said he could get me one just like his, but it might have a little blood on it (typical Uncle Jimmy). Yes, Grandpa and his boys, in the driveway on a crisp autumn day”

I love this layout, I’m super happy with the way it came out.
