The ones that never made it...




Sometimes I just "scrap it quick", usually because time is short, the photos aren't the best, or I'm wanting to use up paper I've had enough of, offcuts, etc. I usually take a quick photo or two when I'm done, add the page to the relevant album & that's it. These layouts are that type. The ones that never made it...{with the really bad photography to match!}

Focus on Cami's pages today...as I'm working my way through my 2009 Layouts folder & deleting all the extras that I don't need...{I always sort the photos within my folders from youngest to oldest, hence Cami comes first}.

See what I mean about the bad photos, lol?!? Lots of hand-journaling on these - 'cos it's quick & easy for me...Every year I do at least one school layout per child, more if there are sporting achievements to record.

Relationship layouts are one of my faves...I've noticed I have numerous pages featuring these two. They share a very special bond. {They're "tight" as the kids here would say...}

The title here pertains to the fact that Cami & Reilly were in the car when I took the photo. "Not going anywhere yet" - as opposed to the teens who, before I know it, will be leaving the nest, & are already testing their wings!

Just over a year down the line the above saying ain't as true as it was then...which is one of the reasons why we scrapbook...to remember...

Love the above photos, even though DH looked like a lobster in them {btw 3 IPL treatments later & the difference is remarkable - worth every penny that treatment I tell ya}

Don't be horrified at the title of this one - if you read the journaling you'll understand - it's just a joke DH & Cami share!
