This week I continued the orange and teal color scheme from week 1. Most of my pictures were taken on the weekend. I need to work on taking more pictures throughout the week.

This week I ordered pictures Sunday afternoon, picked them up Monday morning, and finished the layout Monday afternoon. This worked out really well and I’m going to try to keep it up, so I don’t get behind this year. Continue reading

April 22- May 05 This was a pretty normal couple weeks for us. I went with a pink color scheme for this layout and I love how it turned out. I really tried to keep things simple. I like a nice balance between creative embellishments and still letting the photos be the focus. This is getting easier to each week. I think its because I’ve had 6 months to practice.

April 6- April 10 I Love this insert so much. It might be because looking at these picture makes me happy, but I also love how this came together. The bright coral/ orange paper mixed with the blue is perfect for vacation photos. I kept the embellishments simple to let the photos stand out.
