Packer Layout

In this house, we're Packer Fans. I grew up in Wisconsin, and the rest of my household has been happy to adopt my football loyalty. This year my husband and oldest son took the 16-hr round trip trek so my oldest could attend his first Packer Game at Lambeau. So, of course, today I have a Packer layout.

I found this really great Packers Pride Football paper pack from Scrapbook Customs. Honestly, I usually have a hard time using paper that is so heavily themed, but this layout came together really quickly. This collection was so easy to work with!

I picked a few of my favorite photos that they sent me that day. Since I didn't get to go along (I was a little envious, but I still remember my first Packer game with my Dad, so making this a father son outing just seemed right), they made sure to take and send lots of photos. I also made sure one of the tickets ended up on the layout. Scrapping bits of memorabilia like tickets or maps is a great way to make sure those little bits of nostalgia don't get lost over the years. 

I hope your fall is starting off as wonderful as ours is...and Go, Pack Go!

First Day of Middle School Layout

Scrapbooking Store's September kit is out and it is perfect for scrapping those back to school photos. So far, I've created 3 different layouts. Two of which you'll have to check out on the Scrapbooking Store's social media accounts, and the third I'm here to share today with this first day of middle school layout.

I'm loving the rich colors in this kit. The colors are a little deeper than bold primaries, so the look is great for older kids and first day of school layouts that want to be a bit more sophisticated. 

The big deal with middle school (besides being in a new part of the school) is that they get lockers with a lock on them. There always seems to be a bit of a learning curve with this, and it seems to be the thing the kids worry the most about. I thought it would be fun to use one of the locker chipboard stickers from the Upgrade to September's kit to add that as an embellishment on the layout. P.S. He's mastered his locker no problem.

Thanks to the Scrapbooking Store's September kit, this may just be the fastest I've gotten my kiddos' first day of school photos scrapped!
