Scrapping Good Time.

I've been on a scrapbook kick this week. Gotten quite a few pages done. Posting real quick, so my MIL can peak at them. I've been using my Cricut like crazy. Loving it! Playing with the Design Studio and Sure Cuts A Lot software too! As always, my sketches are from Jeanette's books, Cherish, and Imagine. I can't say enough about what they've done to my pages since I started using them. I'm big on a lot of photos in my pages, and the sketches make it totally possible to pile them in there, and not look crowded. And uses at least three sheets of paper per page, so as a paper addict, gotta love that!

Anyhow, just gonna put up two pages at at time. I've made way more than that this week, but figured it would be a bit much to put them all up! Today's pages are from when we visited family in AL. We don't get to see them too often, so we try to snap photos of the kids together. They have one cousin there, and she's a few months younger than Trey. We try to get them an outfit that'll work for both her and Gabi, and match Trey well enough. We took them to a local park and snapped some photos of them together. I used some retired stamp sets from TAC for the sentiments added to the papers.

We also visited the local Zoo. I have to say, shockingly, I don't think I've ever made a zoo page. I'm trying to recall one, and can't. Might have to dig thru older scrapbooks and see if there's a page in there. Either way, I stamped out the animals from TAC's Wild Things sets with Versamagic pads. The paper is probably a bit too toddlerish for their ages, but its perfect for the theme, and I've had that cute DCWV Nana's Nursery stack for so long, I'm happy to use it up! My title choice is because the Zoo had a train that we rode thru the zoo. Which was why I also used the train sheet on the pages.
Supplies: All papers are from DCWV stacks. Stamps were TAC. Cricut, SU inks, Versamagic Inks, primas, nesties.
Thanks for stopping by!
