just so you know (gabby)

My fourth scrapbook share...(man, I can't believe I am staying on top of this!)

(supplies: felt shapes: KI Memories; flower trim: Doodlebug; ribbon: Making Memories; everything else: Heidi Swapp)

Here's Gabby's layout that I did for her before the baby was born. I absolutely love the cobalt blue chipboard letters lately...a totally different color for me. So much fun! Again, an envelope with the hidden journaling. When I like something, I just do it over and over again!! Someone had asked if I put these pages in regular protectors and the answer is yes. Since the journaling isn't for everyone to see, I figured that you don't need easy access to read it...and when Gabby wants to read it, she can just slip the page out of the protector and open her envelope! Also, I've talked about this before, but I'm really into doing similar layouts for my girls lately. If you have a good idea, or if you do a layout that you love, just whip one up for all of your kids! A good idea can go a long way. It's so much easier for me to scrapbook two similar layouts than to be thinking of new ideas from scratch. So go ahead and re-create your fave layouts!!

Thanks for coming by, and tomorrow's my last day to share!!

I am loving your scrapbooking shares this week. The envelope idea is awesome and I'm going to "borrow" that idea. Did you paint the paint on this lo or did it come that way -- I love the look.

I'm glad you've had some time to create. Need to have some time for things mommy is interested in. Even if you have three kids.

so cute- thanks for sharing! Great idea to make more then one page of something you LOVE!

And thanks for giving the info on the page protector or not... that totally makes sense!
