Another 8x8 Layout!

Ok... so this is not me or my husband... lol! And all the kids in the other layouts on here are not all mine. What I do is scrap all the pictures you get from friends and families (you know... wedding pics, school pics, baby pics, etc) in little 8 x 8 layouts. It helps me to look at them more often and use up supplies! Also, I could never throw away a picture!
