Oldies from 12x12 to 8.5x11-2

Here's a couple more of those pages that started as 12x12 and are now 8.5x11. I'm really enjoying the change and the process of making them into smaller pages.

PS: These were not recently done...I have not had any time to scrap my own pages.

Old pages from 12x12 to 8.5x11 -1

This is by far one of my favorite pages. It was originally made as a 12x12 page/layout, however, 8.5x11 has always been my favorite size, so I decided to redo some of my favorite pages in my favorite size, this layout is the first of the collection.

Miss K was 11 months old, every time I'd say "I love You" she would stick out her tongue and smile and that is why this page is titled "I Love You, her way"

I like the focus to be on the pictures and allow them to say part of the story...the rest is in the journaling, which is nicely tucked behind the top picture. While I love to share my scrapbooks with family and friends, the journaling is for her and that is why most of the time my journaling is hidden. To view this page in its original design, visit my gallery
go to albums then click on the 12x12 tab. Enjoy.

Be Scrappy!

Ladybug Eggs #2

Remember those ladybug eggs? Well, here is a picture of them.
There had to be at least 30+ tiny eggs. Unfortunately, they got eaten by the ever hungry ladybugs...

Awanas Day

Crazy Hair Day at Awanas.
For this fun day Miss K. came up with the idea of having LOTS of ponytails on her head..."Now that's crazy!" she said.
So, after church we went looking for those tiny rubber bands and we found them at the Dollar store.
And here you have the result. She was pleased and I was glad that she was patient enough to sit still, long enough to get these done.

Happy 1st of May!

Wow, May is here! I hope that everyone has a blessed month.

A little update on the ladybugs...the eggs were eaten. I didn't think on letting go of the ladybugs after the eggs were laid and ...well, the bugs did what they do...they eat them. I felt so bad in breaking this sad news to my little one. So, we a male and female and we are waiting to see the next set of tiny orange eggs any moment

My little one has a double ear infection that had kept her up for a couple of nights, now we are taking care of that. She hates the taste of the medicine but likes the tickles she gets after she takes it. Hey, it works.

Today is out to run more errands, and back to working on more cards and a few pages. I'm getting a lot of things in order and might have a few surprises up my sleeve at Ana's Cards...stay tunned.

Life's Short...Scrapbook.
