This is an old photo that I forgot to scrapbook before. When we had all of my cousins together a few summers ago, we took this cute portrait together.

I kept this layout really siple because I have a rule about not altering momentos in any way. Since I can't get another copy of this photo, I attached it to the layout with clear photo corners and would not attach any letters/papers/embellishments on top of it.

Details: Patterned papers are by Memory Stor (from huge paper pack at Costco). Dotted paper (photo mat) is by Bazzill. Rubons are by Stampin Up. "Cousins" was cut using the Calligraphy Cricut cartridge (Shadow feature).

4th of July

So I decided to use the same pagemap twice in a row. It just had the right configuration of photos for two layouts I needed to complete. (See previous post - Tahoe Trip 2).

Again this year, I tried to get some good fireworks photos. These are ok. But I thought they were cute because all the fireworks are squiggly. ;)

Details: Blue dotted paper is by Bazzill. Stars are by Li'l Davis Designs. Yellow journaling block is by K&Company. "Live out Loud" block is by Pink Paislee Office Lingo. Black zig zag is by Bazzill Just the Edge. "4th of July" was cut using the Lyrical Letters Cricut cartridge (Jack Sprat feature).
