LO, LOAD, scrapbooking

LOAD wrap-up

My lovely friend Laurie (whose blog you should definitely go check out so that you can ooh and aah over the awesome layouts she’s made of her precious first baby girl) asked me for a LOAD update (um, over a month ago), so I am finally honoring her request (better late than never, right?).

I did an awesome job keeping up in the beginning. And then work got busy, and I had to wrap up the end of my Religious School year, and we had a Bat Mitzvah party to go to, and… you get the idea. Out of 31 days, I completed only 11 layouts, but I’m totally 100% okay with that. I went into the month knowing I would never complete all 31 days, and I ended the month happy to have achieved 1/3 of that total. As I’ve said previously and will continue to say in support of LOAD, I have more layouts at the end of the month than I would have had I not participated in this challenge. Thus, it’s always a success!

Without further ado, here are the remaining four layouts I completed:

This hybrid layout is dedicated to my favorite place to be lately: between the pages of a book.
 I finally used pieces from Teresa Collins’ Home Sweet Home kit, which I’ve been squirreling away – for what, I don’t know. I felt like journaling would be too much for this already busy page, so I think when I put it in my album I’ll attach a 6×12 insert and add some thoughts there.

I did a “just for the taste of it” LO about Diet Coke a few years ago & decided to play off that slogan to document my love of Starbucks salted caramel hot chocolate on yet another hybrid page.

I acquired this digi template in 2009 and regret that I don’t know to whom it is credited.

I ended the month with another all-digital page, celebrating my favorite pictures of hubby & me.

The most shocking part of this LOAD? I actually remembered to get my digital layouts printed! They are due to arrive this week, and I can’t wait to put them in my albums!

I had a great time creating, and it was an added bonus that (unbeknownst to me at the time I signed up) that I got to play along in this challenge with not just one, but two of my bloggy friends. I look forward to the next time I can scrap a LOAD!

  1. great layouts Cheryl – and I considered it a success even in the month when I only did ONE layout (last October) and then never joined in for the rest of the month! 🙂 Eleven is a great number.


  2. Your digital layouts look so nice! Whenever I go digital it's just a hot mess and then I never even get them printed. Do you actually have yours printed? I have holes on my albums waiting for printed layouts – my wedding album especially. Where do you get yours printed?


Your thoughts are worth a Second Glantz!
