Monster Jam {scrapbook circle}


Oh yes, this wood background paper from October Afternoon is amazing! I need 10 more sheets just like it. Maybe just to make a mini album so that all of my pages don't start to look like I live in the Wild West. :)

This paper, and so much else, is available in the Remember This kit from Scrapbook Circle. And how cute are those mini chevron bags?! Such a perfect way to tuck away some journaling in a super stylish way.

I made my page using the sketch inspiration at Artful Delight. Check out the sketch and play along over at the blog. Lots to see over there!


Taking Nate to Monster Trucks this past January was so fun. He is old enough now to really get into it and root for his favorite drivers and cheer along — it was such a great night out for our little family. I managed to get some great pictures even in the dimly lit arena, so that made me happy.


Nate is so excited to have this layout finished. It's currently hanging in my craft room (one that he shares with me for his craft area, too) and he keeps looking at the page talking about that night. A great bonus to making these pages — you get to re-live the moments!

Thanks for stopping to see my layout!

The paper and the little bag are so fun! I've got a ton of those little bags. I've been using them in Project Life but maybe I need to use on on a layout!

Great page! That background paper looks so real. I thought you photographed your layout on a fence. It took me a minute to realize it was the background.
