Pizza Boy and Fantastic Four

Good morning! I am back today with a couple of layouts I made during Inspired to Scrap's June Weekend Warriors class. I love Stacey's sketches and even though I didn't get to all of them during class, I have them printed off for future layouts.

Both of these layouts feature photos of my boys way back when they were little things. I've had these photos on my desk for about the last 6 months just waiting to be scrapped.

This first layout is of Shane in 2004. We had just gotten home from preschool and while I was getting things put away, he helped himself to some cold pizza from the fridge. This might not be a big deal for most people, but this was the first time Shane had done anything like this.

I have such a hard time using patterned paper for my base. I love it when I see other layouts using it, but I just feel like it looks busy. But, I am trying to mix things up a bit and try new things and who knows - if I start using it for a base more often, maybe I'll get used to it!

I used some of Echo Park's Scoot collection for this layout. I love those primary colors!

My second layout is of Matthew on his 4th birthday. It took me 12 years, but I finally got them scrapped - at least part of them. I still have pictures of him opening his presents that will go on another layout.

I used Crate Paper's Party Day collection - that I have been hoarding for a while now. I don't know why I am hoarding it because, not only do I have several pieces that I bought at the scrapbook store, but I also picked up the paper pad of the entire collection at Hobby Lobby a while back - so it needs to be used! Thank goodness the majority of the papers are generic and can be used for layouts other than birthday layouts!

There you have it - projects 18&19 of my first round of 50! Stay tuned for a summertime layout of my adorable granddaughter from the 4th of July, and the first card of my Christmas in July card challenges.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Lori, these are both really cute layouts. I was thinking how perfect that second sketch would be with Yuletide.

  2. Lori cool layouts and well done on the 2 pager :) I really like how that turned out and the circle music paper is perfect for this layout singing Happy Birthday :)
