Finally Time to Scrapbook!

I have been way behind on my scrapbooking, so I decided to take advantage of a crop at my LSS this weekend to catch up a bit. To tell you how far behind I am, I had pictures from March 2007 to scrapbook! I wanted to share a few of my favorite pages that I did. I hope the come across OK, I covered up most of the pictures because I prefer not to post our personal pictures, just a personal preference. The first one was from the 500 Festival Parade last year. We go every year with my Mom and her husband, pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the fun! Usually there are a few celebrities, last year we saw Patrick Dempsey and McSteamy, I don't know what his real name is! Gene Simmons was there too. We usually get seats in the front so we are very close, it is a lot of fun. I did rain, but it stopped by the time the parade started and we were able to enjoy all the floats and bands! Next page is from DD's birthday, you'll have to imagine a 2 year old with cake all over their face for this one! For the ribbon I just used white grosgrain and colored the sides using a SU Marker. I used my cuttlebug to do the Yummy Cake and I used my wavy creative memories cutter to do the mat for the picture in the middle. I love this page because it is purple! Sometimes I like to put a lot of embellishments on the pages I do, but Friday night I was just focused on getting pages done and not really worried about embellishments. I am pretty pleased how they turned out. This next one isn't one of my favorites, but I wanted to post another layout that you can actually see the pictures! Last years vacation was camping up in Mackinaw City, Michigan. While there we went to the Upper Peninsula and it was so beautiful. One of the places we visited was Tahquamenon Falls. It is no Niagara Falls, but it was beautiful. I was able to get about 12 pages done Friday night. I am at about June for my DD's scrapbook, then I have to go back and scrapbook our vacations last year and this year. I want to keep up to date with my DD's scrapbook as much as possible, so my goal has been to be completed with the previous year,
by her birthday, so I have a couple months to do that! I may need one more crop night at the LSS! More exciting news is that I registered for a weekend crop they are doing in October! It is at a local retreat center, they had one in February, but I missed it because we were in Hawaii (that 's OK!), but I signed up for the next one and I think that will be so much fun!
