There is one event that I look forward to all  year long! It's the annual Scrapbooking Retreat that happens on October. I go with my friends and my sister and her/our friends. It is, without a doubt, so much fun. What could be better than spending an entire weekend doing nothing but scrapbooking and chatting with your friends?! There is a short hike and great view near the lodge where we stay and every year we try to get a little bit of exercise and then show that we did by taking a selfie at the top. To scrapbook this selfie I used a sketch from Sketch n Scrap

These are my scrap friends :)

Time to Fly

During the summer of 2018 we had a season pass to Silverwood. We went to the amusement park frequently so I have a lot of Silverwood photos to scrap. I decided to just showcase some highlight in our family album so we don't have a ton of layouts about the same thing. In this layout I focused on rides that go really high up in the air. Panic Plunge and Spin Cycle - two rides my son enjoys going on.  I used a sketch from Sketch n Scrap to scrapbook these photos.

When I got the Iphone, I was so excited because it had portrait mode. So, I noticed as I was going through all my photos from last year, how many portrait modes I ended up taking. A lot! Here were a couple of the first I took of my kiddos.
I used a sketch from Sketch n Scrap to scrapbook them.

New Coat of Paint

I am a Guest Designer at Lasting Memories Scrapbook Layout Challenges this month! And, I'm so excited to share the figth and final layout challenge for the month! 
I decided to continue scrapping our move into our current home. We had decided to replace the carpets sooner rather than later due to the carpets smelling poorly after being shampooed. They needed replacing anyway, so why wait?! Since the carpets were pulled up we decided to pain the entire upstairs. It became a family affair and of course I took photos of everyone doing their part!

One of my favorite memories is of going to Silverwood Theme Park with my sister and some friends. The kids enjoyed every minute of that day. There were smiles, laughs, rides, games, and treats. It was an epic day!

Love Our New Home

I am a Guest Designer at Lasting Memories Scrapbook Layout Challenges this month! And, I'm so excited to share the third layout challenge for the month! 
Two years ago in July it will be two years since we bought and moved into our current house. I was so excited about it and mostly because it was on a culdesac, which I have always thought to be the perfect type of street to live on. It has definitely lived up to all I thought it would be. We have amazing neighbors and it's such a quiet street. I am blessed! For this challenge I decided to scrap two of the photos we took, one of my husband and I signing the papers and one of the house itself.
The Challenge: TULIP
The theme for April is - Word Play - and you are to use an item or technique for every letter of the chosen spring word for this week

My name is Jamie Arthur and I'm so excited to be a guest designer at Lasting Memories this month. I love scrapbooking and really love working with sketches. I have been scrapbooking for over 20 years at this point. I have two children, a Golden-doodle, and I'm married to the best man a girl could ask for. And when I say the best I mean it! This man puts up with my scrapbooking obsession as well as my coffee addiction and my love of books (which are everywhere)!  I enjoy spending time in my craft room creating layouts for our family scrapbook albums. It is so fun to be able to open our family albums and not just look at pictures but relive the memories through the layouts themselves. I put my albums in the order in which things happened and I go year by year. The only problem with this method is that I end up with a lot of albums! I tend to scrap everything, however I find that it is so worth it when I look at my children enjoying them.
Most of my layouts can be found on my blog…
