Quick and Easy Layouts

Here is a quick and easy page with not too many supplies.  I think it only took me 15 minutes to make.  When I use the coordinating My Stickease there are sample layouts on the backside.  If I like them then I can just copy the layout, place the stickases on and Wa - La my layout is done!  Simple.  It just cannot get any better than that! 

All supplies are from Close To My heart unless otherwise noted.

Scrapbooking with not so great pictures

These pictures are not perfect. Many years ago I scanned in some old Polaroid photos into my computer to make sure the memories were preserved. My scanner at the time was an old one. Long story short, when I printed them off they were all pixilated. I was so disappointed, so I filed them away not wanting to scrapbook them. But the reason I scrapbook is to tell the stories and memories with pictures and text. So, although the pictures are not perfect they still tell a story. And here they are.

Let's Celebrate!

Well, summer finally arrived!  The weather is getting better outside so that means life is starting to get busy too.  My posts to this blog will still be coming throughout the summer but maybe not quite so often as they have been. 

These are some really old photos…it is of my 5th birthday. I used the Fanfare Workshop On the Go Kit but I did make a few changes to fit my photos into it and to “customize” it a little bit.
