Journal Notebook

Here I used a small notebook that holds a pad of paper inside. I recycled stickers that I used to put inside my son's books that said: This belongs to.

  • I cut out the part of the sticker that had my son's name on it.
  • Then I lined them up across the top and near the bottom of the notebook.
  • I used the top of the stickers and the bottom of the stickers and put them near each other to look like one sticker.

This project is part of the September Monthly Challenge on Practical Scrappers.

You said what?

Here is my daughter inside the Covered Bridge at the Shelburne Museum in Shelburne, Vermont. October 2009
I used fabric behind my picture and lots of paper scraps to add some detail around the picture.
I entered the page into the fabris Challenge at Scrapbook Challenges.

American Idol

My daughter and I went to see the American Idol concert with the top 10 singers in 2009. It was a great concert! Here is my daughter, wearing her new American Idol t-shirt, at the concert.

This page was created based on the Scrapbook Challenge #217.


Here my kids play on the swings in the garden next to the shoolhouse at the Shelburne Museum in Shelburne, Vermont. Also my daughter sitting inside the schoolhouse. We visited the museum in October 2009.

This page was created based on Sketch 218 from Scrapbook Challenges.

I also used cardboard from several different products that I had. Some was printed with the pink dots. It was a way for me to "Go Green" by recycling some of my packaging from my scrapbook supplies. This page will also be entered into ScrapFit for Workout # 28.

This Lo was created using the ScrapFIT Workout #27.

It was so easy to put together. By using a paper kti I was able to easily put together coordinating circles for this LO.

Upper Canada Village

This 1860s village is in Morrisburg, Ont, Canada. It is such fun to visit and see the buildings and talk witht he people who"live" there. We went there last summer when my sister was here from Colorado. What fun we had!
