Layouts for my Life List Book

Thought I'd share some more layouts with you. These are all layouts that I am adding to my life list album. I went through a big circle phase and was adding some type of circle to each one. As you can see they are all very different, but they are there. I love the way these pages turned out.

Touch an iceburg. . .okay so maybe it wasn't in the middle of the Arctic Ocean or anything, but it was an iceburg (indoors at the Titanic Museum). And it is my liffe list so it counts because I said so!!
Try scuba diving. . . had a lesson while I was in the Dominican, loved it!
Rock Climbing. . .went for 3 months straight with my good friends the Millers. We did awesome!
Make my own pasta. . .nothing complicated, just simple basic pasta, so yummy!

Still scrapbooking

I share so much of my Project Life here on the blog you may think that I have abandoned traditional scrapbooking. No way! Thought I'd start sharing some pages randomly. I went through last years album and took some pictures of my favorite layouts. I am still ordering pictures from December and have tons more to do before 2013 is actually completed, but here's a start!!

A couple of layouts from a zoo trip taken with my sister last April. I always have way too many pictures and try to include a bunch in my layouts with overcrowding. Not sure how I feel about the 1st layout, but I love the way the polar bear one turned out!

This layout represents the fondness my sister has for finding praying mantis' in the front garden. She is always too cute searching for them. It's a big deal because she hates bugs!
