Magic Monday Layout- Nelson

Magic Monday Layout is a fun way to feature different layouts that I have made or just fall in love with.
This week is a layout I made with old photos of my grandparents. It's so much fun to look at old photos and work with them! Of course these pictures were taken far before I was born and it gives me a glimpse into life at a different time...

 The little cabin you see of the left page is the old bunkhouse that slept 9 people! They lived in that while they built the cabin up in Sumpter, Oregon. And the baby that my grandpa is holding is of course my mom!
I used a layout from the CTMH book "Imagine". The paper used is from the retired paper "Wings". While this is not my favorite paper pack, I love the almost neutral colors on the backs of the B&T papers and I DO love the butterflies!
Here is a photo of the complete layout:
 All that's left is to do some journaling! Oh yeah, I used photo corners for these pictures because they are old and if I want to scan them into my computer it'll be super easy! Happy Scrapping!!!

Magic Monday Layout- A Good Man

Magic Monday Layout is all about new and fun layouts that I see or have created that I love!
This week it's a layout I did featuring my dad. I got some old photos and put them on a great CTMH layout.

I am using some retired CTMH papers for my layout. Because I want to preserve the photos I am using photo corners instead of using adhesive to stick the photos down. Because I used photo corners, I can later scan the photos or make copies!

These old photos are not standard 4x6 photos so I had to improvise some with the layout of the pictures. I will add some journaling and then I will be done! Don't you just love how easy it can be to do a layout?
Hope you enjoyed this post. Leave a comment to let me know your thoughts.
Happy Scrapping!

Magic Monday Layout- A Lovely Lady

So I'm back from the land of the sick child! Today is Magic Monday layout day and I have a mostly done layout I just did. I am really loving it so far.
I got some great pictures of my mom when she was younger (and my age too) and decided to make a layout.

I used CTMH paper that's retired. Silhouette is one of my favorite papers! And I used a layout from the Originals book. I love that if I am feeling stumped or just don't want to think too hard about cutting paper, I can just open a CTMH book and browse through different layouts and find one that works for me. Super easy!
I still need to do some journaling and add some fun embellishments before I am finished. Also, because I used old original photos, I did not glue them down to the paper. I used photo corners to preserve the photo as much as possible. And if I ever want to scan them into my computer, I can just pop them out and back in!
Wasn't my mom a hottie! She is still a great little lady and I love her very much! Next week stay tuned for a layout featurning my daddy!
