It's like riding a bike...

Scrapping, that is -- although I've thoroughly enjoyed my art immersion, I was starting to miss my favorite pastime. I woke up yesterday and decided I would take the time to scrap. It felt so good to get back to the photos, paper & glue.

Here are a couple of layouts...

Last summer, my brother took the kids fishing while on vacation. (Thank you, Uncle Barry!) When I saw this paper from the March Cocoa Daisy kit, I knew it was the perfect match for the photos. I simply cut out around the fish and added some Dew Drops for the fish eyes. Such a simple page, but I really love the end result!

The second layout simply captures my son finding the first sand dollar of the week -- always a big deal in our family! I cut the ribbon in half to border the photos.


In case you're wondering if I scrap every.single.photo, the answer is, "NO!" I use these nifty divided page protectors and simply slide the photos into the slots. It's a great way to see the photos you love but don't necessarily want to scrap.



Well, it feels great to be back, doing what I love! This week is our Spring Break, so I'm grabbing my camera and I'm ready to capture some fun, family moments. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I take WAY too many photos to scrap them all. lol. I have photo albums for all my extra photos I had never thought of putting slotted page protecters between my scrapbook pages to add them all to the same book! I'm not sure if that's exactly what ya meant, but I think that's what I'm gonna start doing now!

    These pages are terrific Sherry (I especially love the first one - genius to cut out around the fish!!). And adding unscrapped photos in the slotted page protectors is a fantastic idea.
