What a great idea! My now Sophomore loves to read too. I'm going to have to get his list and try something like this. Love it!

Eileen Van Dyke

This made me laugh this morning, for years my 16 year old has kept a list of the books she has read. Never thought of doing a layout on it. Thanks for the great idea.


What an awesome layout and job of reading. The buttons are so cute and I want some of those for my Week in the Life album I still have to finish. This is a fun sketch and I will give it a try too. Thanks


This is such a great idea! I really like how you listed all of the books for the journaling. This will be a great page to look back on in the years to come. Great take on the sketch too!


Whoa. Where am I? Someone changed their blog banner! I like it! And that is a pretty awesome layout, my friend. (And an impressive amount of books.)

Cool layout! I love seeing you use the Silhoutte more!

Diana Waite

alright this is just SO clever! I'll have to admit this is one of my favorites of yours BECAUSE it's documenting something totally different that Alyssa might forget in a few years--LOVE it!


What a great sketch and ur take on it is perfect!! I love scrapping about things like this! Will mean a lot when she looks back at this layout someday :)
Love those circles! U will have to tell me which cut that is.


Thanks so much for the idea to do a layout on books read during the school year. My son has to keep up with the books he reads each year (he's actually gotten awards for the most books a few times) but I've never thought to a l/o of it. Now I will!
Thanks again for the great idea!


I think this is my fave layout of yours! Love all the buttons on the circles, so cute! My daughter loves to read too, she's starting the Harry Potter series over again, my son on the other hand, hates to read, he's started high school today, so I am sure there will be some reading in the near future...lol


LOVE the layout as usual!
What font is the fifty seven that you used to cut out with your Silhouette?

Love this layout and good for Alyssa for being such a bookworm. I keep track of the books I read too and do a yearly layout.

Great Layout! love it! Especially love the circle cut outs and the embellishments. Great job Alyssa for being such a faithful reader!

Jennifer Chapin

Love this layout! And the sketch too :) Congrats on being a guest designer!

Annabella Merlin

Can I have one of those embellished circles from patterned papers? They are gorgeous and the colors are great!

I love those circles! Great idea for a layout too!

Lisa Westphal

I love everything about this layout! I couldn't resist pinning it to my 'scrappy goodness' board on Pinterest. Gooooood One!! :)

Sara Rossi

I can not tell you how much I just love this LO! I need to do something like this for all the books I've read....just not in such a short time! ;)
