I was feeling a little scrappy

It was so nice outside when I got home last night from work that I decided to take Aly out and get some pictures of her. I threw this page together last night, well it took me about 4 hours from the time I started in the back yard to finish. Not too bad I guess considering I had a lot of interruptions.
I used my Cricut for a lot of the pieces on this page. I am addicted now, thanks Laura. I had the machine for almost a year and never used...silly little me. I had no idea what I was missing out on.Of course now I want the big wah ha ha. The light blue flourishes on the left upper and right lower corners were made with a Fancy Pants stamp from the set "Bella Brush". The green butterflies and flowers are rub-ons by Stampin' UP!
I have already made another page this morning with a CM kit I bought from Dawn at the beginning of the year. I am going to work on an album for each of the kids, a page a month at least. So, Aly has an "April" 8x8 page done, but I better get cracking on the boys pages as I am already 4 months behind..aah! I have a bunch of 12x12 pages that I have done, but I don't have any albums put together. I think what I will do is just put all those in one album for myself. I get to caught up on making one for each of the kids so they will be able to take it with them when they are older and moved out with kids. I think that will be my new plan, make the kids each an album with one page a month. The others that I do when I am just playing will go in "my album". Would you all be interested in seeing more layouts along with my cards and altered items?? Maybe I will start a "Scrappy Saturday or Sunday" hmmmm a thought???
Have a great weekend!

Love the layout and colors, you are just SO creative. Glad to hear that you got that cricut out again as well. I would love to see more of you page layouts but am happy with whatever you decide to do.
