Journal Pages Roundup

I finished Riley's latest journal, and did the cover.  As you can see, it covers an entire year of his life.  As he gets older, I just don't seem to get to his book as often as I'd like, but I guess that just goes with the territory of having three kids!

 Noah's book got a spread about his wonderful relationship with his baby sister- they really seem to have a special bond!

He also got a page about SUPER NOAH!  Boy, this kid is into superheroes lately!  So he really loves this page!  I had a lot of fun making it, trying to get that comic book vibe, yet still stay within my own style...
 Miss Avery learned to walk a few months ago, so this page is about that milestone.  I love the vintage baby shoes embellishments I found (probably by Joleen's) at Michael's.  I don't often use premade scrapbook embellishments, but every so often, I find the perfect one!
 Here's a spread about the dress worn by both Avery and myself as a baby.  The photos themselves were posted on my Flickr site, so if you'd like a closer look, you can see them there.

And one about her learning to talk.  I really love this page!  I love the vintage girl illustration with her pigtails! I've been putting Avery's hair in pigtails lately, and the drawing really reminds me of her...

Okay, hope you're all having a great start to the weekend.  We've got a teacher's workday here today, so are spending the day home playing.  The kids haven't even taken off their pajamas, which is not like me at all!  But we're all loving it!

You know, your style is so uniquely you! I remember once I saw a Somerset with some journal pages of yours, and I know instantly that they were yours! How fabulous! You are a true artist, and how fun to have your girl!

...and we're the opposite. We have a hard time getting out of our pajamas!

I have just read your article on Hand Crafted, 'Making your artwork meaningful' and just wanted to tell you how inspiring it has been!!!! I am not a collage artist, but now I want to use meaningful family pictures for something creative!!
Thank you thank you!
