Busting out with an 8 1/2 x 11 layout!

How often do you use a blog, facebook, or twitter post as a jumping off point for a layout?

I do this all the time. It's a big time saver for me because it helps me to focus my thoughts on the little memories that I want to save.

I recently blogged about my kids being "underfoot" while I make dinner, and I used some of those same pictures for this layout.
I made this with the beautiful NoelMignon "The Bees Knees" kit (now sold out!).
I tried something I haven't done in a long time- an 8 1/2 x 11" layout! I snagged one of Noel's "Daily Deals" a while back and got an American Crafts album in this size. I think it'll be a fun challenge for me to work in this size from time to time!
The journaling reads,

"Sweet little hands and feet, wheels and car noises, the little murmurs of adventures on the kitchen floor. It's the 5 o'clock show I get most nights as I make dinner."


  1. So cute :) I wish I would've done a layout like this when my older 2 were little.


I'm so glad you decided to leave me a comment today! Thanks for taking the time to stop by my little corner of the world. :)
