Scrapbooking, Little Blue Bird


Wow it's monday.  We had such a busy week!  There was pony riding with girl scouts, ballet recital, hand chime playing, and a gymnastics show.  I'm exhausted from it all.  Anyways, here it my latest Memory Nest layout.  The photos are from when my daughter recieved her ballet costume and tried it on.  She was a little blue bird.  She loves the outfit because it has feathers instead of sparkles.  Feathers are soft compaired to sequence that gets itchy and scratchy!   It has been a while since I edited photos, but I really wanted to make the blue of her tutu stand out.  The alpha stickers I used on my layout are not my favorite, but it turns out I don't have to many blue options. The l and the u in blue look the weirdest.

Scrapbooking, Rig-A-Palooza


Wow, how can it be monday already?  Time is going by much to fast!  Here is my latest layout for the Memory Nest.  The background is supposed to look like tire tracks...it might have worked a bit better if I used black paint instead of white.  Oh well.  This was a fun layout to do.  This is my first real boy layout out of what I can only imagine will be many.  I've never scraped trucks before!  I discovered that I don't have too many boy geared embellishments with the exception of monsters.  I have a lot of  *cute* monsters.  With the lack of manly embellishments, I actually tried to make a big dump truck for the background.  It didn't go to well.  My truck making needs a lot of work. HAHAHA!


I decided to make my photos be the angle shape.  This let me have a bunch more photos.  I still have a ton of extra truck photos though.  It was a fun event.  So many types of trucks!  The bomb squad truck with the robot was one of the coolest! It also was interesting to hear the search and rescue driver as they own their own vehicles since they are all volunteers.
