Finally Scrapping Again

We moved to Utah from California and I haven't scrapped since before we left (mid-June).  I did get some cards made in that time, but mostly just been busy.  Finally getting settled in enough to get some scrapping done again.

The first layout is from Chuck E Cheese -- my boys, who were really a bit old for CEC, took pics of themselves.  Repeatedly.  In interesting poses.  These are all of my oldest, Scott, who is now 24.  These were taken at the Chico CEC which puts them back in 02ish.  A couple years ago :-)

I have a few more of my younger son, Ben (who just graduated and the photos are from 1st grade).  The frames around the photos were just too big, so I trimmed up most of them.  And finally used up my Nikki Sivils 6x6 pad I got forever ago.

The next layout is based on a sketch from Let's Capture Our Memories.  And the photos are much more recent.  Saying good bye and leaving my aunt was one of the hardest parts of leaving CA.

Here's the sketch I used:

As you can see, I turned the sketch and show more of the second photo.  I also moved the title and journaling.  I used Recollections "Route 66" paper and some old buttons I had in my jar.  

Feels good to be creative again!
