Hi everyone. I am stopping by just for a little bit today before I head back into the basement to do some more pages. I figured since it is raining so bad outside and my hubby has taken the kids somewhere?? I should come upstairs and have a mini break. I have been in the basement for some time today only because the weather is so bad and everybody is gone. But also because the kids and I were looking through our scrapbooks again and everybody wanted to look through the newest album (2007-2009). And there pretty much was nothing in the album from the end of 2008 til 2009. I mean I had done some pages but I forgot that I had been on bedrest at that time and wasn't even able to get to scrapbook all those pictures that I had taken. So today seemed like the best day to get it done or at least started. I am missing about 5 major events and 2 holidays. So I will be working hard to get those pages done.

I used We Are memory keepers papers on the layout (2pgs). I love this paper and I used it on an album that I sold on ebay, and even on a couple different cards that I posted earlier on my blog but I only used it once in my own album. So I just had to use it for this layout because it works so well with the photos. Plus it just reminds me of summer. Which I needed to be reminded of since it looks so bad outside right now!

And the photo arrangement was created in adobe (in about 5 minutes) because I needed to scrapbook so many things that happened. There will be a couple of events from the summer that I scrapbook separately like Vele's birthday, and the 4th of July but this layout is it for last summer. I am thinking that I might add white # rub ons to the photos and journal each event that way (by number) so that I can get all the dates added to the page.
