Day at the Zoo

A trip to the zoo is one of those things that it's really fun to have themed papers for when you scrap.  Several months ago I was the lucky winner of a scrapbook.com gift certificate over at Cindy DeRosier's blog and I used it to buy, among other things, the Echo Park Mini Themes "Day at the Zoo" collection.  It came with six sheets of double-sided papers and a sheet of stickers.  I made all three of my kids a two-page layout and had supplies left to spare.

Gavin's Football 2014





I tore the corners off a football print 12x12 paper and matted it on a grey piece of background paper to add a little texture to the left hand page.  The "Bombers" title is stamped onto squares of paper that I cut.  Bombers is what jr high football is called in our area, not sure if that is just a northern MN thing or if it is more universal??

Moms & Kids 2014 - Scott

The last of the Mom's & Kids camping pages from 2014. Whew...sometimes scrapping albums for three kids at a time gets overwhelming and, dare I say, tedious!  For this page I started with a great plaid paper from the D.C.W.V. The Basics Stack.  I matted everything on grey cardstock, including my title which is made from Paper Studio alpha stickers.  Again, I made a camping page without putting much of a dent in my camping sticker collection, just added a few leaves from a really old sheet of stickers that I can't remember the brand or where I got them.

Camp Hiawatha - Scott

Scott spent one day at Camp Hiawatha again last summer.  He didn't have that great of a time when he went in 2013 because he was one of only a couple boys there for the day, both of whom left early so he was left with all girls! It's important to Jesse and I that the kids have a great Bible camp experience so this time around we gathered up a couple of his little buddies to go with him to ensure a good time.  It was a success!  On this layout I used Jim Holtz idea-ology alpha tiles for the title and just a few stickers from The Great Outdoors collection by Echo Park.

Back 2 School Cut




Talk about a work out for the clippers!  Last summer my then 12 year old decided to let his hair grow all summer and it turned into this wonderful, thick, curly mess!  The start of football required a cooler cut that a helmet would fit over!

Scott's 8th Birthday

Scott's 8th birthday page is just cardstock and some birthday themed stickers by Jolee's Boutique - the same stickers used on Alarik's 3rd birthday page. I told you, I got a LOT of extended use out of my scrap pile during our last scrap session!  I used another of the ArtSkills numbers for the big part of my title.  I know I've complained about this before, but it is so annoying to me that the scanner cuts off that .3 inches on the side.  If the pane of glass is that big, why can't it scan the whole darn thing???  I've tried photographing layouts a couple of times and don't get good results so I will just have to live with the cropped scans I guess.  *sigh*
