Happy Monday!

Good morning!  Hope you had a great weekend.  SURPRISE!  My layouts today have pictures in them!  I bet you wonder if I ever keep and put pictures in the layouts I make.  Sometimes I do!

When I scrap my family albums I try to make the pages very flat so I can get more pages in the album. To give you an idea of just how many pictures we take, each one of our grandchildren have a 40 page album with just pictures taken at the hospital!  Are we obsessive, or what?

This is Andrew playing with his doggy Moses.

But my albums are not exclusively creative pages.  I use 3-ring albums from Paper Studio that I get from Hobby Lobby.  I just love their 12 x 12 page protectors which hold horizontal and vertical pictures.

I also use the Memory Protectors from Close to my Heart and the the Storybook page protectors from Doodlebug.

Most of the pages in my albums are these 12 x 12 page-protectors and once in a while I will make a two-page spread using my absolute favorite pictures, like the ones you see above!

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a beautiful and blessed day!


  1. Very good idea to use the page protectors that hold only pictures, because we could never scrap all those pictures we take. Impossible. I am now going back to find pictures and put them on my layouts. I have too many with no photos. Hope you had a wonderful weekend with your family. Ana

  2. Good morning Beatriz and thanks for all the great tips which I plan to use. All your l/o's are absolutely adorable!

  3. I like your idea of using the page protectors, I do too take lots of pictures, thanks for sharing!!

  4. Beautiful layouts with wonderful pictures!

  5. Gracias por compartir esos tips Beatriz, y pense que la unica obsesiva con el scrap era cecy ja ja ja :) ya veo que si hay otras mas. Bendiciones y Buen inicio de semana.

  6. What a treat to see some of your beautiful layouts with pictures of Andrew! Love the 4th of July one!!! Those glasses he is wearing are so cute.
