5 hours....seriously?

To the untrained eye, it would seem ridiculous that I would be downstairs working on my scrapbooks for five hours and only get this much done.  For those of you who scrapbook, you totally get it!  I still kick it old school - paper, slicer, glue, etc.  Digital layouts are so cool, but there is something very cathartic about slicing the paper and messing around with different configurations with paper.  Anyway, here is what I was able to churn out during my five hour scrap session Saturday night!  Click on the photos to see them bigger!!

5 months - A pretty simple layout for Micah's book.  The journaling on the right pulled his milestones directly from my blog post!  I goofed up on the "n" and had to cut it again because I added the shadow feature by mistake and so it is thicker than the others.  Oh well!  I was out of the yellow paper, so I was stuck with it!

Materials:  Cricut (Cuttin' Up and George cartridges), Patterned Paper - Martha Stewart

Remember when I couldn't decide which photo to use for Project Life?  I finally got to scrap all four finalists and then some!  I used a sketch from Creating Keepsakes magazine for this one (Mar/Apr 2010, page 68, "Ladies Who Brunch"), but I turned it into a two-pager.  I love how the red of the tire swing and Isaiah's cheeks is picked up in the layout.  The flower embellies and some of the stars are accented with glitter, but it's hard to tell on the photo.  I'm very pleased with this one!

Materials: Felt flowers - Martha Stewart Crafts, Blue letter stickers - American Crafts, Rub-ons - Making Memories, Red felt letter stickers - Making Memories, Glitter - Stickles

Quite possibly one of my new favorite layouts.  I loved this photo of Micah sleeping and I knew it deserved its own layout.  Once I decided to use black cardstock for the background, the rest of the patterned papers just jumped out at me.  Scraplifted from this layout from Janna Wilson!

Materials: Black cardstock - Bazzill, Patterned paper & circle embellie - Scenic Route
Fellow scrapbookers, do you spend this much time on your layouts too?  Or and I just exceptionally slow?  That's a distinct possibility.  Also, do you have any particular favorite designers?  Are you a Sassafrass Lass or a Cosmo Cricket?  Scenic Route or Doodlebug?  Spill it!!
