Leaving a Legacy Designs

Helping you scrap your memories one page at a time

Sneak Peek and a chance to win!

I have a new kit coming out on Friday at Stuff to Scrap….


Sound fun right?  Would you like to win this kit?  Leave me a comment and tell me if you have ever run a race (5K, 10K, half marathon or marathon etc) or plan to run a race or if you are like me and 0.0 is your distance! I will pick one random winner.  Comments close on Thursday at 3pm CST!


Double Page Layouts and a Sneak Peek!

Are you a single page scrapper or a double page scrapper?  I tend to do one page layouts for most of my photos but if I have a big event or a lot of photos from one event that I love I will do a double page spread.  Here are a few by the team and myself.

First off Henriett used Easter Peeps to create this fun layout.  I love how she included all the face shots and a large title as well.  The blocking is a great way to include a lot of photos at one time.


Next up is a fun page of my boys at breakfast one morning while we were on vacation.  I spread the photos out  and add a lot of journaling.  I used the same papers on each page but in a different way to add some fluidity to the page.

Next up I used blocking to add a lot of photos from a fun water table experience with my boys.  I used the second page to add one large photo and the journaling.


This page I used a song and journaling for the second page and a single photo for the first page.


Next up Tricia spread  her photos out across the page.  A lot of fun photos and similar clusters draw your eye around the page.


Finally a small sneak peek of my newest kit coming out on Friday….Framed!  Another song/story with fun photos!


Have a great Wednesday!  Go try a double page layout.  I am sure you will enjoy playing with them.  It is fun to put tons of photos on a page, but remember the story and remember to leave that legacy!

Sneak Peek and a chance to win!

I have a new kit coming out on Friday!  I recently celebrated 10 years with my high school sweetheart.  We have been together for over 16 years, married 10 years this year.  Our wedding colors were blues, whites, and yellows.  The flowers were daisies.  We got married outside at a cabin in the woods!  Here are a couple of pictures I took last year when we went to visit.  My grandparents own this little cabin and the land.  As a child there were horses and much more going on.  My grandfather was killed in a car accident 6 months after we got married.  My dad couldn’t keep up with the horses and the rest of the farm so he had to sell them.  My amazing grandmother though spends a lot of time out here in the spring and summer.  She has amazing gardens with flowers, fruits and veggies!

Since ladies read this I can add a few more details right?  I came down the front steps and down an aisle to my amazing husband to be.   Afterwards we had a picnic and pictures, a lot of fun for sure!

My sweet family of 4 standing in the very spot we said our vows.  How many couples can say that? 

Now what you have been waiting for…a sneak peek and a chance to win my kit!  You may have seen this before…this is my siggy in the forums!  Aren’t the colors great?

Now how to win…all you have to do is tell me your favorite date idea that you have with your spouse or significant other.  My hubby and I set a goal this year to go on a date once a month.  We have no family leaving close by so we don’t get away often.  If you aren’t married, never fear this can still work for you!  Tell me your favorite idea for a girl’s night out, I am need of one so some ideas would be great.  Leave a comment below and share this with your friends so they can have a chance to win.  You never know I may give away more than one….
