Crop pages (1/2)

We had a lot of events this month, then I had a crop.  Awesome!  It was the perfect reason to print and scrap the events before I forgot details.

Here are some pages I started at the crop (and finished at home).

My son chalking up the concrete.  He wrote "my big creation" on the page, but it's hard to see.  There is paper and ink for this layout:

"mom, why are you using chalk?"  "because you did."  Then I let them color on the page too.  I used chalk paper and chalk:

I used a punch, Basic Grey background paper, Echo Park paper and ink:

I used paper, ink and brown Liquid Pearls (to show where pigs are):

My younger son loves cars and was mad that other people would bump him so he couldn't just drive around.  I used Reminisce paper, Thickers, Liquid Pearls and Stickles.

One kid is a fish, the other has dry legs, but they both went in at least once!  I used DCWV paper and brads.

Their favorite part of summer was making the sand castle.  I used DCWV paper, brads and Liquid Pearls.

I'm in a group of scrappers called The Sheila's.  We all met online for a circle journal and stay in contact regularly, for over 5.5 years.  Some of us have even met in real life.

This week we are having a summer reunion.  The nice thing about this group is they get me to make things I normally wouldn't.  Some of the pages 'due' were these:

Scrap your favorite vacation:

I loved our 'staycation' evening in our back yard earlier this summer.

Scrap life now:

This is us.  I used colors I like because this layout is more for me.

There is more info under the smaller photos.
