I can't believe it...

I have actually stuck with the page a day challenge. I figured I would've missed a day by now since our weekend was pretty busy but somehow I managed to get it done. One thing I've learned during this process - when I use my handwriting I can get a page done a whole lot faster. I know that sounds silly but it takes me forever to figure out what font I want to use.


This is the first page I've made of Jackson. It's his stat page for his baby book.


I've had this page idea in my head for a long time but I don't know if it came out exactly the way I wanted. The stitched tornado turned out better than I thought it would but I don't know what I think about the big circles as storm clouds.

great challenge for yourself. I'm impressed! I don't think there is anyway I could whip out a page a day for 30 days straight...especially with 2 kids. You rock girl!

I am also doing a layout a day (usually 2-page) for a custom album (for hire). I'm glad not to be alone!

I really love the stitched tornado-so clever. I also really like the grouping of pp/pictures on the Sunday page. Thanks so much for sharing these with us!

Your baby page is soooo cute! I love the stitching. Great pages. :) Jenn

Holy Cow, Woman! those are great! I loooove that stitched tornado... it's my biggest fear too! (we're moving back to AL in a few years, lots of tornadoes). I love all your layouts, what a sweet baby page! love the mm stuff, and that animal page is cool too!

by the way, i've moved my blog to wordpress. the address is still the same, but if you read my blog in a reader, the feed address has changed.

I'm totally shocked about the one page LO too, but it has to be since it's the start page huh! LOL!! Loving the tonado so much. I may have to scraplift that for my SIL. Her kids are called the Tayloriville Tornados which happens to be the mascot of the HS too!!

Keep em comin girl.

Awesome challenge to yourself! Good luck! :) Love the pages. Did you hand stitch the tornado? Really cool idea, and totally relatable here in Oklahoma! I haven't stitched a page in awhile. Been too lazy.

Hi Allison! I recently found your blog and I just want to thank you for the inspiration! I scrapbook two page layouts 99% of the time, and it's so hard to find them as I search galleries and message boards. It's nice to see some great double page designs! I love animal paradise, so cute!

I'm impressed and I don't know how you do it. Jackson must sleep a lot? Or you don't? lol I have had a LO on my kitchen table for two weeks and all I need to do is adhere some stars to the page and it just hasn't happened yet!
