Write.Click.Scrapbook April Gallery

This month's theme is "starring me!" So I chose a photo with me in it, and I get quite a nice compliment in the story. So without further ado:


The rest of the ladies did not scrap about me, alas. Still, they made layouts about themselves, and they are a talented bunch of ladies, so you should check out this month's gallery

Sneak Peak for April Write.Click.Scrapbook.

Here's the sneak. It's a topic that is near and dear to my heart, so I can't wait to share it.

Citrus Twist Kit Mini Album

March is Mini Madness Month at Write.Click.Scrapbook. Seriously. it's madness. For a whole month, there is a new mini album featured every day.

I got to make an album with February's Citrus Twist Kit. It is not a very serious number, but somewhat cathartic, as I began a book of instructions to my family as to how to keep our apartment clean. Not boy clean. Mommy clean.







I am madly in love with that blue Amy Tangerine paper (hence it shows up 3 times), and that Basic Grey paper with the orange triangles. 

Thank you Citrus Twist for bringing those papers into my life, and making this album happen.

The Middle Piece of Challah

In case you haven't noticed already, I enjoy documenting the good and the less than perfect in my scrapbook pages. Because, while there is lots of love in this home, there is lots of other stuff too. And one day, G-d willing, we will sit around the table, and reminisce about the good times, and we will probably laugh at some of the things that drove us crazy while we all lived under the same roof. 

For example, every week, we buy a pull apart challah, and almost every week, Sam "calls" the middle piece of challah. If, however, Max calls it first...well that would be one of those less than perfect times. Click on the photo and read all about it, if you are so inclined.  At the very least, for a few moments, you can feel like you are not the only crazy family around. You might even feel superior enough to say, "At least our family is not as bad as the Deutsches."


The best part of this layout? I got to use lots of pink.

Sammy D.

My little babe, is not so little. Funny how that happens.

It seems like just yesterday I was marveling about Max's impending teenagery.


And it does not seem that long ago that Max was studying for his Bar Mitzvah.


And now, I am in the same place with Sam. Sure, we have all the way till January until its official, but since the Bar Mitzvah preparations have begun, it is hard not to look ahead.


It goes by fast, so you might as well enjoy the ride.

Another Israel Project

While I was in Israel recently, I whipped up this little number for my sister's home.


A few years ago, I made this for her home. It hangs in her entrance way, and I admire it whenever I pass it by. 


It's all matted and framed, and it says "Welcome" in Hebrew. It also says her family name up top.

It's nice to have a fan.

A Belated WCS March Gallery

March is Mini Madness Month at Write.Click.Scrapbook.

Minis are not my forte. But, practice makes perfect, I suppose. Either way, this mini did allow me to record a bit more about this past summer. And like this past summer, this album doesn't totally suck.

Observe:













Two notes:
1. I was in Israel while I made this album, and thus, I had to hand write my journaling. 
2. Upon reading this album, Max has clarified that the trip to the Maritime Museum was the worst trip ever.
