Scrapbook, Cotton Candy

CottonCandy2

I love when I can make a page that doesn't necessarily need a lot of explanation to get the story across.  I feel like the pictures captured everything just right.  I wish that happened more often! I was expecting my daughter to love the cotton candy, but was so shocked when she didn't like it!  I think it was the texture.

I made this page using this sketch for the memory nest.  It's a fun layout challenge.  Simple sketches have so much room for creativity.  I just wish I had more time to scrapbook.  I feel like I have so much to do that I never have time to scrap.  Hopefully the weather will cool and I can find more time.  Plus, having a little guy who is getting into EVERYTHING doesn't help.

Scrapbooking, Just Enough Freedom

JustEnoughFreedom
 
I totally didn't realize that today is Monday.  Labor day has really thrown my weekend thinking off.  Anyways, here is my layout for the Memory Nest for the make it monday.  There is a twist to.  You had to use up some old stash.  The "&" paper and the orange paper was left over from some kit thing I had gotten once a year or so ago and never really used much of it, because the were 8x8 in size, so it was a good chance to use it up. 
 
It's a really funny photo that I wanted to scrap for a long time ago.  I never thought I would use "one of those leash things" on my kids, but right as I had turned into a huge waddling pregnant woman my daughter hit the I'm going to do nothing but run away from you phase.  That bumble bee backpack became my best friend for a few critical weeks. 
 
There is some cute stitching around the clouds that was a pain to do, but ended up as a cute detail.  I tried to do some painting thing, but it wasn't exactly what I was going for.
