Tomorrow, the boys and I are heading out to house- and dog-sit for a week, so I’ll be on a scrapbooking hiatus.  No worries, I have crocheting to do!  There’s a certain baby gift I need to get moving on…

Since I knew I’d be going through Photoshop withdrawal next week, I knocked out a couple of pages today.  First was today’s challenge at – to scrap a screenshot.  I adored Jessica’s sample, with a Google Map of her house, so I ripped it right off.


We bought our first house in 1999, so all of the photos are in printed snapshot form.  Of course, this means they’re also packed away.  Once we get to Seattle (and I find them, and I find time to scan them in), I’ll finish this layout right up.

The second layout, since it’s Friday, was for a DigiDare.  This week’s Dare is to scrap a chaotic situation.  With two young boys, it just fell to me to choose which situation.  (You know I have a few to choose from.)  How about a two-year-old eating?  That should fit the bill.


The tricky part of this one was to scrap it in a chaotic style without losing focus on the photographs.  I’m pretty happy with it.  (And, BTW, how freaking cute is that spaghetti-covered boy?)
