Ok that really has nothing to do with the post other than the fact that I am able to look at out the window and see pretty snow today. This is our one day of February snow that we get each year.
On to the progress that I have made on the 9th grade album. When I started this thing I was thinking it was going to be on the small side because I did not have much to work with. I think I was wrong.
In my last layout post I was talking about how I have custom Allen High School scrapbook papers and other goodies that I have been saving over the years to make Kaela’s high school album. This is the bucket I am working out of along with using CMTH papers depending on what the photos call for. It is a bit of a challenge but I think I am making it work.
Kaela took these photos at school one day on her phone. Not the best I have ever worked with but hey you work with what you have. I have a post it note over one of the kids because his Mom does not want his picture posted. But since they are buds and have known each other since kindergarten Kaela wanted him in the album.
This is a gain a combination of the custom papers and CTMH. The layouts are all from the CMTH How To Books that I love to use so much. I am mainly using Reflections but the others pop in from time to time.

Alyssa was staring in her first Drama production and we had to be there!
These next couple of layouts were fun for me for a couple of reasons. First the way that I was able to get the photos and second just remembering that day. This was one of the first dates that Kaela and Jarrett ever went on – at the park. They were gone for a while so being the parents that we are we went to spy on them. I had my trusty camera and was able to get some great shots until they heard the click of the shutter. I was busted! (hee hee) After that it just turned into a photo session with Mom and Dad.
I was going to fill in the trees in the banner (goldrush area) but my fingers told me they were going to fall off if I did not stop stitching. So I stopped. I may go back in later and finish filling in the tree line to make it more woodsy.
So that has been my crafty time the last couple of days.
How has yours been?
