A Few Layouts

Hello and Happy Sunday!

For last few weeks, it has been hot hot hot here is Texas and playing outside with the kids during the day, we all get extremely tired, sweaty and cranky.  So finding indoor activities that don't consist of watching TV or playing video games, has been a challenge.  After running through all the board and card games, we switched to scrapping.  The first two photos below are the results of our scrapping time. 

The first layout is made by my son (6 yrs) - who took the longest and couldn't decide on anything so...after an hour of going through all my stash...

LOL...He is so proud of HIS layout.

The next layout is made by my daughter - who will be 9 soon.  Watching her build her layout was awesome.  She took to scrapping faster then I have seen anyone else.  After deciding what pictures and products she wanted to used, she had her layout completed quickly.  I was and am so proud - she enjoyed it so much she has asked for her 'own' supplies so she can start scrapping herself.  She even picked out the cricut cut that looked like a snowflake and make the cut herself (all I did was walk her through the steps of using my cricut).


The last two layouts I did for Pocket Challenge and Anything Halloween Challenge at Simply Betty Stamps.  All materials are from the Simply Betty Kit Club except the tags, flowers, rub-ons from creative imaginations and stick pins are from a swap - made by Shawna Rae.

Thank you for stopping in, comments are always welcome and very much appreciated.
Until next time - happy scrappin'! ~ Carol
