Girl Scout Bridging

I LOVE how this page turned out!   This layout is of my youngest daughter's Daisy bridging event in June 2009. 


I'm so behind with my scrapbook efforts!  One day I promise to be completely caught up!  Until then --  Here is a page that I just did last night of my oldest daughter's 2008 Spring chorus concert  (I jump around a lot when I scrapbook!).  She was my little star that evening!

Like Santa

Christmas parties are really a lot of fun -- especially when the teacher loads the afternoon with games and food!  My youngest daughter's class played a game to see who could stick the most cotton balls to their faces in one minute.  They first loaded their faces with Vaseline and then for one minute bobbed in a plate of cotton.  It was HYSTERICAL to watch -- especially when the teacher started the activity!  Here is the page I created around that afternoon game of fun.

Happy Trails!

After trying to figure out how to do this layout with one 5x7" picture, I finally came across a neat layout on the cricut message board (thanks to that person for the inspiration!)!  I thought it worked well for my layout of the sign we saw as we entered into Cape Cod!  I can't wait to go back again!

Are we there yet?

While sitting and watching the Super Bowl tonight, I decided to sit and work on another layout for my daughter's soccer tournament album.  This one actually is a result of hearing "Are we there yet?" about 101 million times on the way between Vermont and Cape Cod during our trek down.    Anyway..... here is my tribute to my daughters who asked this every 30 minutes or so on this trip!

Tools used:
Lettering and cut-outs:  Going Places
Other Embellishments:  Stickles, buttons, and ink


Who doesn't love a good water park?!  My youngest daughter's class took a trip to Smugg's Water Park last June and it was a BLAST!  My youngest had the time of her life and she especially enjoyed the large water slide!  I think she rode that thing a MILLION times from 10 am - 2 pm that day!  Here is the layout of her day!  

Tools Used:
Lettering:  Makin' The Grade
Beach items & Water Park wording:  H20 
Other Embellishments:  Ribbon, stickles, and colored sand

One Big Stop!

Another one of our stops on the way to the Cape last year was to the Ikea in Stoughton, Massachusetts.  There is only one word to describe this place --- BIG!  I was shocked when we pulled into the parking lot and saw the massive building ahead of me.  I was in HEAVEN......  We only spent a little time searching for the bi-gel rods I wanted but I managed to find other goodies in the short time I was there!  If only we had one of these stores near my house!
           Tools Used:
          Lettering (Big):  Plantin Schoolbook
          Lettering (Stop):  Alphalicious
          Shopping Bag:  Celebrations
          Other Embellishments:  Ribbon, 2 Buttons, Stickles


Last year my oldest daughter's soccer team traveled to the Cape to participate in a HUGE soccer tournament.....and guess where we had to stop on the way down?!  TARGET (or Tar-jayyyyyy)!  Yes..... sadly we get excited to visit a Target now and again since we don't have them in our state.  Anyway, here is the page I made for her soccer scrapbook of that trip to our favorite hot spot!   I can't wait to head down again this year!

LID CHALLENGE: Mid January on the Cricut Board

I know..... I'm late on finishing my LID challenge for the middle of January?!!!!  My excuse.... I had to wait for my ink cartridges to arrive so I could print the pictures the size I needed!  I decided to use this layout for one of my daughter's band concerts.  I hope you like it!

Takes the Cake!

Back in November 2009 my daughters attended an American Girl Doll Tea Party at our local library.  It was an afternoon filled with historic games, crafts, and food!  At the end of the event, the head librarian raffled off this beautiful AG theme cake..... and guess who won?!  That's right.... my youngest daughter won the cake!  She was thrilled to be the 'lucky one' on this afternoon!  Here is the page I made about her winning day.  I still need to add a journal tag... and maybe a couple other little embellishments.
