For the second page of my 2014 album, I wanted to pay homage to our road trip to Kansas, without actually including any of the trip. (Since it was spelled out in our travel album.) I decided to use a couple of pictures of myself and the boys that I took in the van. While parked. I just thought I should make that clear.

The top photo was taken just before we left SC for good, and the bottom one was taken right before we drove into Snowmageddon in Missouri. This ended up being a pretty girly layout, because I decided to pull the colors from my suitcase and scarf. I’m totally ok with this though. I have two boys. My life could use a little more pink, and some extra hearts.

I Made an Elf on the Shelf…My Way

I made an Elf on the Shelf, but of course had to do it my way. I made him a soldier, and he reports to both Santa AND my husband, who is currently deployed to Kuwait. It’s a nice little way to keep my husband in my boys’ holiday, even though he can’t be here himself.

You can read all about our first few weeks with the elf over on my mommy blog, Mommy Panda.

Week in the Life 2014: Wednesday

I finally got the chance to start working on my 2014 Week in the Life album again. (I didn’t get to finish them before the ScrapbooksPlease.com $.99 sale ended. *sigh* I didn’t even get a chance to start any…)

It’s funny to see how far I’ve come in my pocket pages since I started doing them in October. Since then, I’ve read a lot of blog posts, and watched a bunch of videos, and I think it shows! Here are my pages for Wednesday:

I decided to mix in a couple more traditional layouts for this day, and use a pocket layout for the recap/overview. I like that digital albums allow me this flexibility, and I don’t think I could achieve quite the same effect traditionally.
