Scrapbook Generation September Blog Hop


Good morning and welcome to the Scrapbook Generation Blog Hop for September. I hope you all are enjoying this long Labor Day weekend. You should have made your way here from Lori's beautiful blog.  If this is your first stop, you might like to start at the Scrapbook Generation blog and then hop through each link.

 I have chosen to use the free double page sketch from the June edition of Create magazine for my layout. You can download a copy of this sketch here.

My granddaughter turned 8 months old on July 30 and I got a little carried away taking pictures of her. Can you blame me? She is pretty darn cute and lucky for me, she is a pretty willing subject, at least for now! This sketch was perfect for me to get quite a few photos on one layout.

I am still working on my 50 projects, (I'm almost there - this is 42 of 50!) so I went through my stash, and mostly my scraps, to make this layout. I used some old Jillibean Soup, Echo Park, Cosmo Cricket, Fancy Pants, and Close To My Heart papers. I wish I could say that it looks like I'm making a dent in my stash, but I have a lot of paper!

You can find the Scrapbook Generations sketches in their books and as downloads in the Scrapbook Generation store. There are four free sketches every month in case you want to try one out.

Next on the hop is Katy.  Check out her blog to see her beautiful creation and be sure to leave a comment on each blog. One lucky commenter will receive a free sketch bundle of their choice from the store.

The winner will be drawn on Monday, September 8th which leaves you one week to leave a comment.

  1. Adorable with a capital "A". That Miracle paper blends perfectly with the other lines you mentioned. I am still hoarding some of my Miracle paper. You've inspired me to dig it out and play with it. P.S. I used that same sketch recently on my blog, too. :) I like how you switched up the photos on the left page, though. Much easier.
