CTMH Blossom Layout

Good afternoon, friends!

I started the day off with a treat. I didn’t have to take my kids to school this morning.

My husband did! Whoop!

It isn’t often that I get to start my day by just plunging into my daily chores. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

By 9:30 this morning, I’d finished my chores (the main one, anyways), and sat down to play while I waited for my laundry (second main chore of the day) to finish it’s wash cycle.

I’m usually just getting home by 9:30. And, this particular routine- doing a little bit of cleaning, then scrapbooking- is nearly a daily occurrence.

Yes, I have a problem.

No, I’m not ashamed to admit it.

Some days LOL!

It isn’t often I have enough pictures from a specific occasion or everyday occurrence to create a double page spread, but this time I did.

Even though only one of the twins is showcased in this project, the theme applies to both my children.

They’re both foodies.

They were born, started putting on weight and never looked back.

They’re now 6, four feet tall (and that’s a conservative estimate), and weigh a good 90 lbs. My children are far from small!

A bit like my husband, their daddy. I’ll be the shortest in our family before long.


The sketch below inspired this layout. It was also submitted to a challenge that I participated in during an online crop at Scrapbook Generation back on Superbowl Sunday.


I rotated the sketch 90° making the top photo border an end cap on either side of my design.

I did that mainly because I didn’t have four 4×6 inch photos to line the top of my spread with.

I used a mixture of CTMH Blossom and White Pines patterned papers, and stamped part of my title and die cut the rest using my cricut.

Thanks for stopping by!
