Toy Room - Double Page Layout Week

This week is double page layout week here at Daily Life - Bits & Pieces, and each day I am sharing a two page layout inspired by a sketch from the BPC Double Take workshop I took last fall. I pulled out the sketches and several batches of photos recently and created all new layouts inspired by the sketches.

The sketch for today's layout called for five portrait oriented photos, and I knew the photos we had taken in Robbie's collectible room would work perfect.

I couldn't resist replacing the "o"s in room with googly eyes!

Have you scrapped photos of your home lately? When I look at these photos now I can see changes that we've made in that room over the past several years, and I'm so glad I captured the way it looked our first Christmas here.

What a fun layout! And you've reminded me that I have a set of portrait shots of the bookcases in our living room - this sketch would be perfect for scrapping those :)

Wow, what a collection! I love the way you used the google eyes for the o's in the title.

The eyes add an extra element of fun and I think they are perfect :) I've been thinking about scrapping the pictures I took recently of my scrap space

Fun to recognize so many of the toys - and love the eyes, they are such a neat touch. Reminds me of my Grandpa's basement full of his collections - don't think anyone ever took photos of it. Glad you took photos here.

In hindsight I have often wished I had taken photos like these. I love the eyes!
