Hike in the Woods


We are about to go on a mini camping vacation within our vacation so I wanted share this outdoor page that I did just a little bit ago.  This is the first of what I expect to be many hiking pages.  With that in mind, I didn't want to use a lot of the typical outdoor brown tree paper.


I made this page with hidden journaling and did lots of sewing on it.

This page has lots of layers and I had a fun time cutting out images from some of my papers.

Scrapbooking, Little Ewok


This is really kind of a silly page.  I used the colors of my daughters hat when picking out papers for this page. I didn't have any dark blue paper so I got out my markers and did some coloring.

 I know the title seems a little strange, but the upper right photo just reminds me of an Ewok so much.


I used purple folded ribbon at the top of the photos and looped blue ribbon on the bottom.  I was almost done with this page when I went to get the mail and my friend had sent me a birthday package filled with scrapbooking goodies.  I knew I needed to use something from it so I added the little pink flower jewel on the bottom of the photo.  I also used the bird washi tape and I've been waiting a while to use it.

Scrapbooking, Zoo Fun


I have had these pictures sitting on my desk just waiting to be scrapbooked for a while now.  When I saw the challenge on The Paper Girls blog, I knew that these pictures were perfect for it.  I don't do challenges too often.  Mostly I never can finish them before the deadline, but often I don't have the right pictures for the theme, the right materials on hand that they call for, or I'm just not feeling the sketch or layout at the time. 


I love the details of this page.  The challenge required the use of mesh.  I used some as a backing for my main photo.  I did lots of stitching and had lots of fun cutting out frames for the photos.  I made the little green flag and cut out the hippo and leaf from some more paper.  I also used a monkey brad by the title that I've been wanting to use for a long time.  It's a little crazy pattern wise, but I love it!
