Where we went

As you may have read in previous posts, we were fortunate enough to have enough frequent flyer miles to travel to Thailand over Christmas break. Our flight routing took us through Germany and Denmark where we had time to stop and look around. We also traveled into Myanmar while we were  staying in Chiang Rai. This page documents our routing and will be the first page in our Thailand album. I used one photo from t each country and calculated the total miles flown.

 This is also my entry to the Number challenge found here, another one of the sketch-n-scrap birthday bash challenges. 

Thanks for looking!

My nephew Nathan became a Bar Mitzvah this past weekend. He really did a wonderful job on the service and we were all very proud of him. The reception was a little more casual. They gave away these bright hats as props and we I used my iPhone to take this fun photo of my children with their grandparents. At times like this, I really appreciate having a camera in my phone. They had a photo booth at the reception where we got this fun photo strip of my husband and me.

This page is my entry to the Sketch-n-Scrap birthday bash challenge to use confetti on a layout. The challenge can be found here. My confetti is made of enamel dots and stars, dimensional paint, stickles, and stamps. This page is also my entry to the Scrap and Play challenge 2 to use items for the word flowers (F- family, L - lattice template, O - orange paint and mist, W - washi tape white cardstock, , E - enamel dots, R - rhinestones, S - stamps, stars). Linking this up to Birds of a feather at Paper Issues for a layout about family.

Thanks for looking!

School Pages

Here are a couple of school-themed pages using Simple Stories Smarty Pants collection.

This page is of my son's number from the school show. The photos taken on stage were dark so I just used posed photos in their costumes. This is a lift of Jennifer Haggerty as part of the Sketch-n-Scrap birthday bash challenges. You can find her layout and challenge here.

This next page is part of the album that I am making for Benjamin's teacher. Obviously, it's the first day of school.  I also did it for one of the Sketch-n-Scrap birthday bash challenges, this one is to use pre-made cards and can be found here. I used 3 4x6 cards, one of which I cut down and 1 3x4 card.

Thanks for looking.
