Close to My Heart scrapbooking page

I stopped working three weeks ago. I really thought I would have more time to get myself organized and be more on top of my scrapbooking. Boy, was I wrong!!! I have been busier than ever! I keep finding so many fun things to go and do with the kids. Maybe once summer is over, I will buckle down and get some things done. For now I am just going to enjoy making the memories! 🙂

This month I am using the Prickly Pear Workshop on the Go Kit from Close to My Heart. It is super cute! I honestly didn’t know if I would like it that much when I first saw it. Once I pulled it out of the package and starting putting it together I was in love!

Prickly Pear Workshop on the Go

I decided to use this kit with some birthday party pictures I needed to do from a couple of years ago. I also had some spring pictures that I thought worked perfectly. I had so much fun with the little sequins in this kit! Here are the layouts I created.

Whew…..I made it another month with my scrapbooking challenge!!! I still think the Little Dreamer Kit is my favorite collection right now, but this one is definitely a close second. I may take next month to get pictures organized and make some cards. If you are more into cards, the Prickly Pear collection is really cute.

    • I love it! I am in the process of doing my daughter’s first year. I need to get all the pictures organized. That is sometimes the hardest part for me.

  1. The cactus paper is so cute! What a lovely scrapbooking kit.

    It’s great to hear that you’re enjoying the Summer with your family.
    Hope you find more time to scrapbook soon. 🙂

    • Thanks Kat! It was a fun kit! Yes, I’m sure I’ll find a little more time once school starts again.

  2. I had the same visions of scrap booking being a stay at home mom. In the past 5 years I think it has literally happened twice! Before having kids I would spend hours upon hours scrap booking and leave my supplies layed out until the next day. But with kids this is not possible! I love the idea of the scrap booking kits, it takes all the guesswork out and still comes out looking personalized! Great post. Now I need to get back at it!

    • You are so right! It is way harder to have supplies out and find the time now. The kits have made it so much easier for me!

    • Thanks Vanessa! If you decide to get into it and have questions, please let me know. I’d love to help! 🙂

    • I’ve wanted to look into project life as well. It seems like a more simple way to scrapbook and I love the look of it!
