I did this as a play along layout for the last round of Cropped. The challenge was to create a "decadent" page and to use the four mystery elements (floral kraft paper, metal car element, scalloped mat, and purple unicorn doodle). My implementation of "decadentness" was to incorporate a lot of different scrapping styles. I chose a template that had a pocket scrapbooking look but also incorporated a large photo. I had two journaling blocks, one of which had my fancy angled text that I do sometimes. I used title work over the photo and mixed a font with word art. I embellished with a couple large flowers. I'm very pleased with the result.

Occasionally Miller gets really into taking pictures. Unfortunately on these occasions, he likes me to take about a hundred pictures of him making silly/ugly faces. But ha ha, I got a couple of smiles too!!

Some pictures from Christmas last year. I would like to have all of my 2012 layouts finished by Christmas time ... what I really want for Christmas is to get both my 2011 and my 2012 albums printed. Right now I'm trying to alternate scrapping an old layout and a new layout to get it all done in time. I'm not too far behind on 2012 luckily.

My mother-in-law came to visit for a couple of days and brought my niece with her. We had a great time, of course.

Miller's first day of school. I was not able to get a posed first day picture (it was really overwhelming how many kids and parents were at school that first day). I satisfied myself with a few candid shots that I sneaked.
