Catching Up On Scrapbooking.

Two pages to show off today. One is of Gabi's dance recital from last year called Fosse. This was a big group routine, where all the dancers were in the routine. They all had the same black bling body piece, but different accessories depending on which part of the routine they were in. At the end, they all came out in just the black piece. Fun little routine for the girls. She's taken dance with her friend since preschool, so we always snap a photo of them together. Her friend is a fantastic dancer, so she was in the older girls routine part. Her outfit had a white shirt, and tie.
This page is full of bling swirls, but it's not showing up so well in the photo due to the loud papers.

Than I took the kids to see the Buford Dam in Ga when we visited in Aug when my father passed away. Family still lives very close to the dam, so seems odd they've never been before last summer. My family went every year over the summer. Always funny to go back to something when you're grown, and see how different it is from what you remember. I remember this thing being huge! Being able to see the dam very well from this one over look. I don't recall the bridge that was there now. My in laws said it was different now since 911, and had been built around to keep it safe. The kids enjoyed it, but liked the water area they walked down too over the actual dam.

Both pages I used my cricut to cut out the titles. I used Sure Cuts A Lot software to do my titles in any font on the computer. That program is very easy to use to shadow a title. The Buford page I used a cartridge called Life's A Beach. I used Jeanette Lynton's books Cherish, and Imagine. I pull those two books out every time I scrapbook. They give me a great starting place with a wonderful sketch to work with. I'm always so happy with the end result.
Thanks for stopping by! I'm hoping to get a few more pages done this weekend, since the kids are out of school on Monday.
Other supplies: SU corner punch, stickles, DCWV Summer stack, and Currant stack, Reflections brads, and bling, primas, PTI ribbon,

Your pages are wonderful Anna! And yes, it is weird going back and seeing places you've lived before.
