Memorial Day!!!

Happy Memorial Day! I'm LOVING my extra day off from work. Last week was so hectic, busy, and FUN! I was lucky enough to go out several nights last week, therefore missing out on my precious sleep. So, I've spent this weekend resting up and scrapping with my kits from Its Scraptacular and Scrapbook Sussies.

I created a Welcome Home banner using one half of the Scrapbook Sussies kit for when my new niece arrives. Check out the blog to see the step-by-step process I undertook to create my very first banner (it was  a lot of work but I love the way it turned out)! I also decorated a gift bag for my best friend's birthday this past week....

and I used my leftover scraps for a layout of her adorable daughter...

The other half of the Sussies kit featured the Scooter's Vacation collection. I thought the theme went well with these snowmobile pictures of my brother and nephew playing in the snow.

I created another layout of my nephew, Aiden, and his mommy sharing moments together.

In the packages of page protectors I've been getting for my 12x12 albums, they have been included samples of their 4x6 picture pocket protectors. I use these when I have a bunch of pictures I want to scrapbook, but too many for a regular layout. It also gives me a chance to include a little bit of embellishing to go along with the pics.

You can also check out all the layouts I created using the Its Scraptacular June kit over on their blog.
