Everyday moments vs. events

I actually enjoy scrapbooking both "event-type" layouts (places we go, things that happen in our lives, birthdays, etc.) and "everyday moment" type of layouts (funny/cute things the kids said or did, just using a photo of them to tell them how special they are to me, etc.) However, it seems lately, that I've been concentrating more on the everyday moments and neglecting some "event-type" photos taken over the past couple of years. So yesterday, I decided to grab some photos from my photo box and scrapbook some events.

I also challenged myself to incorporate this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Glitter buttons.

I'd taken these photos on the last day of school last June, because the kids' excitement was so palpable (okay, and mine was, too!) I love summer and the anticipation leading up to it. (These photos also make me laugh, because try as I might, I couldn't get both Sage & Jonah in the air at the same time! LOL!)

I used My Mind's Eye patterned paper. Webster's paper letter stickers & SU! Dazzling Details on my buttons to get them glittery. I also used Papertrey Ink buttons & dies (journal tabs & heart border).

Here's a close-up of the buttons and journaling:


Thanks for looking!

You are quite the scrapper! Love this layout and the way you incorporate journaling so effortlessly. That is such a challenge for me.
