Scrapbooking, Camping

This summer we went camping back east and I wanted to make a page from my little dude's perspective for his scrapbook (I'll make one for my daughter too).

 
This page was made using this sketch from the memory nest for make it Monday.  Ya, I'm a little late in posting this.  Columbus day really threw me off!  I never realized that was a Monday.  I only processed it as I do not bring my daughter to school day. lol!
 
 
Anyways, I definitely wanted to post more than just four photos, so I had to alter this sketch a bit to get all my photos onto the page.  My favorite part is the stitching to hold the pin in place.  It gives it a really nice outdoor camping feel.  I have lots of camping embellishments, but most didn't make it on this page as they had a very different color scheme.  Maybe I'll get them onto my daughter's page.

Scrapbooking, Smile

 
Wow it's October!  I wanted to share my page that's part of this Scraptober Fest!  My page uses the sketch from the Memory Nest.  It's a really bright page for my daughter's 5th birthday.  I let her pick out the wooden word for the top, and she chose pretty.  I like letting her pick out some of the embellishments for her pages.  It's so fun to see what she chooses and really helps make the page about her.
Here is the rundown of Scraptober Fest.  I hope you get to make lots of fun pages.  I know I will be making some Halloween costumes and hopefully paint my bathroom and laundry room, so I hope I find the time to get more scrapbooking in to!
