Chris and Kyle Layout

Since I have been finishing my degree I have neglected my scrapbooking so now that I have completed my mission and I thought it was time for me to jump back into the fun of crafting! Now I am now a really creative person when it comes to looking at material and coming up with ideas and since I have been away from this for awhile (almost 2 years) I needed some help. Here in our area we have the coolest scrapbooking store called Scrapbook Generations ( The sale sketchbooks with the coolest ideas to help those of us that get stuck. I used their volume 3 for this layout but I did change a few things. First their layout added ribbon to several of the circles on the left side of the page and on the left side of the page the layout called for two 3x3 pictures and a Title with ribbon in the middle, I chose to make the squares 3x3 but added my boys names to the circles along with the year to the center. 
That is what is nice about using a layout book because it allows you to take an idea and get started but also allows you to add your own touch. 

Materials Used:
Scrapbook Generation Sketches for Scrapbooking Vol. 3
ColorCore Cardstock (Blue)
Paperstudio Boys Live to Rock (Pattern Paper)
Solid color paper came from my scrapbox
Creative Memories square punch 1 1/2"
Gypsy: George and Basic Shapes cartridge (circles) 
Cricut Expression
StampinUp foam adhesives
