Now We’re Rockin’ Week 2 layout

This is week 2 of the digital scrapbooking class I’m taking over at (and the class just keeps getting better! You should hear me giggling with glee as I learn a new trick.)

Most of what I learned this week isn’t readily apparent, it’s all behind the scenes stuff regarding shortcuts and ways to edit photos and add small touches to spice up the layout.

Again, this uses all of the elements and papers that came in the class supplies, so most everyone’s has the same basic look and feel. Now the challenge is to apply what I’ve learned to other projects. The supplies are all designed by Jessica Sprague or by Katie Pertiet. The title font is Asman from


Apparently I’m making a scrapbook about my nephew — it wasn’t planned, but it just seemed right to keep going with photos of him (week 1 was all about Colin, too…)

When I first showed Mark the pictures from our trip, he wasn’t really sure why I had a photo of the back of Colin’s legs, but I have to tell you: that picture may just be my favorite part of this whole layout. Even when I was taking those photos of him sliding, I knew that I wanted to try to have several photos to use to tell a story.

The journaling text reads:

Watching Colin slide feet first on his belly was quite entertaining for the adults. We thought it was a little too cold for that, but he didn’t seem to mind. I lost count of how many times he made the trip. It was pretty serious business for him.

The quotations I used read:

A boy is noise with dirt on it. (unknown) – Children learn by doing, and play is their work (unknown) – In the eyes of a child…there is joy, there is laughter…there is hope, there is trust, a chance to shape the future…(Air Supply)

All right. Three posts in one day probably ought to be my limit….
