Layouts, Life, Scrapbooking

Label Tulip

Aaah, there’s nothing a little creative break, a holiday party (and too many Cosmopolitans, ugh) and some fresh air can’t fix. I feel much better now!

Alright, photo and layout time. My parents gave JK this hat for Christmas (well, he picked it out himself and everything), and I just love it. Men need to start wearing hats again!! Anyway, this is us before JK’s office holiday party – great night!

Holiday Party

…and since the sun made an appearance on Sunday, we went back to Tiger Mountain again. I was regretting those extra Cosmos..

Tiger Mountain

On to Label Tulip – this kit is sweeeet, the colors are just so cool! The little rub-on puppy made me think of Chester, and since I never got to take a photo of him, I used the rub-on instead. It was important for me to remember little Chester – our albums can’t just be about the happy things in life.


To get my journaling in a half-circle, I used Jessica Sprague’s template that you can download for free here.

This one looks much better in real life, I couldn’t get the colors or dimensions or anything right in the photo. Oh well!

Finding Me

This month’s Label Tulip challenge was to scrapbook a question or debate…so I chose to write about how I will know if we’re ever ready to have kids! The photo is of me with Karianne – she was days away from giving birth, and seeing her like that suddenly activated some sort of scary pregnancy hormone in my body! It’s calmed down since… ;)


This year for Ali’s word of the year challenge, I orginally chose UP. After thinking about it for a while, I ended up using CLIMB instead; it just sounds more proactive. I want to climb in 2008, both literally and figuratively :)

    The story about Chester was heartbreaking. I’m sorry that you had to go through that experience. I’m not terribly familiar with scrapbook technique, but I love what you’re doing. It’s a nice way to preserve your memories and honor your friends and family. Cheers!
