Golden days

I printed the photos from Thanksgiving. I like to take them to Sams, because it only costs me 13 cents a photo! I took so many photos I fell in love with, I'm having to make three sets of pages. I started working on this one last night, and finished with the final touches this morning.

On these pages, I used the photos that captured both children. I'll make a page just with Trey, and one for Gabi later. I just love the way they look in these photos. Amazes me how quickly they grow! I think my paper turned out to be a little too busy, but I still like it. I think I should have used at least one solid background sheet instead of all pattern. I do love crazy bright pages as my local scrapping friends can tell you. I'm not one to shy away from bold combos on my pages. Just didn't seem like I was able to make the photos stand out as much as I would have liked. I think I know what papers I want to use for Trey's, and I think that'll have the look I was hoping for.
I love the two photos of them at a distance walking. The one where they're facing me, sun hitting Gabi makes her seem like she's glowing. Then the shot of them away, Trey running behind her is such the younger sibling shot! He has to keep up with big sissy! Reality is he can run much quicker than her, but she had a head start! LOL!

I think I also captured our Christmas photo in this group too. There's two photos that I'm trying to decide between. It's hard, because I'm happy with both photos. But I"m so pleased because I just did my very first Thanksgiving Day scrapbook page!

Supplies used on these pages were SU's tag punch, word punch window and corner punch, Crop-a-dile big bite, TAC's count your blessings, scallop square punch, DCWV Fall stack, DCWV solid paper, misc hardware, and flowers.
