Memorial Day flowers layout

Happy Monday!  I hope your quarantine is going alright.  All the kids in my household seem to be getting used to this new normal, although we seem to be operating on the college schedule of up til 3:00 AM and start the day at noon.  But since no one has to be up early for online class and I work the night shift, it's all good.  My husband already worked from home, so his daily routine hasn't been disrupted at all.  We are all missing seeing family and friends, but are doing our social distancing to stay safe.

Our BBTB2 challenge for the next two weeks is a flower theme.  Mother's Day and Memorial Day are all around the corner and spring flowers are already here, so there are a lot of possibilities with this challenge.  While my scrapbook layout incorporates flowers, it is for some pictures related to Memorial Day so I used very neutral colors.  I have some photos of items from my grandparents' funerals and gravesite that I have always wanted to preserve.  I used several of the CTMH cricut cartridges that I own to make all the accents and the Botanicals cartridge for the font.  You can see the design team projects and link up one of your own over at BBTB2.

Change Your Altitude layout for get outdoors challenge

Happy Monday!  How's your quarantine going?  While life is so very far from normal and we are staying home (except for going to work), getting some fresh air by taking a daily walk around the neighborhood has really been a boost to my spirits.  Our BBTB2 challenge for the next two weeks is a "get outdoors" theme.  I chose some pictures from a year ago when I could get outdoors beyond my street, which is hard to imagine at the moment.  My scrapbook layout below is for some hiking pictures in the Rockies.  It uses images I found on the cricut access collection called "And So the Adventure Begins".  The title and compass added the perfect touch to complement my pictures!  It's not very fancy, but I haven't been able to craft as much as usual.  You can see the rest of the design team projects over at BBTB2 and link yours up as well.
