Some "Proof Book" Layouts

My 200 Follower Giveaway is coming to a close.  If you haven't entered, their is still time.  It could be a great jump start to your holiday shopping or you could decide to just keep it all and treat yourself.  Either way, don't miss out - head over and enter....the giveaway ends at midnight tonight.  Good Luck!

As promised, I am going to share some of the layouts I completed this weekend.  I love when I find my scrapping groove and can be this productive in one day - I did 6 double page layouts!  This project has been relatively easy, because there has been no journaling to bog me down.  These are a portion of the pages that I am doing for I what I have named a "proof book".  Each year around the time of  Zachary's birthday, I book a photo session.  Three weeks or so after the session I receive a disc full of pictures.  I pick my absolute favorite and have it printed in black and white and add it to my collage wall.  But then, instead of leaving the rest on the disc - never to be heard from again, I print every single one of them.  It isn't like there are only one or two good ones in the bunch...they are all pretty darn good.  Lucky me to have found such an amazing photographer....thank you Jesse, for being an enabler to my photo addiction!  *WINK, WINK*  But in all honesty, there is no way that I could just pick 5 or 6, much less 20 of my favorites in the bunch.  This way is much easier and causes me considerably less stress.

The following layouts are all from last year's session.  I am hoping to have this book done before I receive the next disc, which should be in a couple of weeks or so.  I will share the entire book once I get it done.

Thank you so much to all of my scrapping blog friends who have inspired me to start posting more of my own know who you are!  I hope that everyone enjoys their Thanksgiving, spending precious time with friends and family.  Not to mention the insanity that is Black Friday if that is your thing.  I hope to do a quick post tomorrow to announce my 200 Follower Giveaway winner and then be back on Monday to share my first ever Pinterest inspired project...I know the suspense is killing you.  Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. This is awesome! I love these layouts. What a great idea to print all of the photos. They are so much more enjoyable in a scrapbook than on a computer!
