Playing catch up layouts

I know I have not been blogging much.  I have so much to do lately and it was difficult to find time to blog.  Well,  being addicted to Platns and Zombies do not help either.  Hee hee...

Last year,  I was disappointed that I did not achieve my 100 layout target.  I only did 89 layouts.  I guess this year  I should try harder and try to scrap more as my stash is definitely building up. This year - the scrapbooking target of 100 layouts is still on and I would like to at least achieve it.  Having not scrapped in a long time,  I was stumped for a while.  I decided to start by very simple layouts.  Here they are:

Going Crazy at the Palace
Took these photos of C at the palace corridor.  She was having a giggling fit and wouldn't stop.  As you can see - the photos were all blurred but I loved the spontaneity of the shots.  Used my very old stash of Dove of the East papers here.  Simple layout to kickstart the scrapping year.  

Mopping - Doing Your Chores

I bought a new mop and Sean was fixated with it.  He spent the whole night mopping the floors both upstairs and downstairs.  I had to document this as I know it will NEVER happen again ;)
Again - my photos of him were blurred as he was just moving too much.  I really need to learn how to take photos in dim lighting.  

 A Happy Nerd

More Nerd photos - I just can't resist scrapping them.  Just a simple layout using the remnants of my Scarlet Lime kits.  Aida,  yup - I reused the stamped image from your kit as I loved it so much.

My Nerdy Experience

We were walking around in Insadong,  Korea when we stumbled upon this spectacle shop.  Bought this pair for No 2 as he is going into middle school next year and this will be his Nerd costume.  Though I do think he looks pretty nerdy with his short hairstyle.

Those were my 4 layouts in 2 days.  Hope that I can achieve my scrapbooking target this year.

Target todate:  95 more to go


  1. Hi! Mich

    Totally awesome job, I like all of the above.
    Love those Chinese hole blue/green beads in the first layout.
    What a good boy, helping mom with the house work.
    I also love the twine/tread at the bottom with a little tool attach.
    C and S looked nerd in those layouts, nice one...

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. These are awesome layouts! Love all the different titles and real-life photos you included in each of them. I am sure they will have a good laugh when they see them again :)
