Creations with Christina 12 month Scrapbook Challenge-March

This is my entry for Creations with Christina Scrapbook challenge. I was able to sit and scrapbook for a little while since I had a sick kid at home.  I sooooooo want to finish this album!!! 2007 was a crazy year! Come to think of it, all the years following have been crazy since we adopted two special needs children!!!  All the more reason to get caught up so I don't forget all the good times through the craziness.  I don't like the feeling of being behind.  So many good pictures to crop!

What I need to do is focus more on the scrapbook and less on the blogging/challenges/blog hops, etc.  I'm sure you all know what I am talking about, right?  But.....it's so much fun and it gets our creative juices flowing and the credit card machines processing!!!  LOL!!!

Any hoot, here are my layouts.  Sorry the pictures came out a little crooked.  One of these days I'll invest in a 12 x 12 scanner but only if I can find a steal!!!

On this first two page layout I used DCWV Christmas paper, EK Success border punch. sparkly ribbon I bought for Christmas cards that I never used, White Sakura gel pen, Creative Memories brown fine tip pen,Stickles, Creative Memories stickers, jewels I bought from $1 bin at Michaels (gotta love that $1 bin!) and cardstock I had on hand.
Cut from Stretch Your Imagination Cartridge
Cut from Gypsy Wanderings (available on Gypsy only)
Cut from Just Because Cards Cartridge

On this second two page layout, I used Creative Memories Winter Reflections Paper. Creative Memories Star punch, Creative Memories Letter/Number stickers; pretty much everything on this layout is from Creative Memoires.

I have one more two page layout to finish off this album.  I decided to put all the birthdays on a two page layout rather then make a layout for each birthday.  This album is pretty much at its limit (capacity-wise) so I needed to condense somehow.  I'll make sure and post it when I'm done. The pictures and paper are waiting on my desk. I hope to get to it in the next couple of days along with a card challenge I want to participate in.

Thanks for stopping by.  Tell me what you think of my layouts.  BTW, thanks for following my blog! I'm blown away that it has grown some!  WOOHOO!!!!
