The Pantheon

Back to last year's GASC layouts from Crystal's class! I like the colors on this one combined with the interior pictures of the Pantheon. While we were there, there was a giant art exhibit installed throughout the building. It made it look like a giant had sneezed everywhere. Very very strange - I just don't think I understand modern art!

Jardin des Tuileries

Speaking of papers that I wouldn't usually use...these are probably at the top of the list! The layout is from this year's GASC class (yet another Crystal layout), and the paper we used on all of the layouts is...well...bright. VERY bright. But you know what? The morning that we walked through Tuileries was sort of gray, and with the gray statue pictures, the bright paper actually looks pretty good. And the giant flowers fit right in!

Paris Metro

Another layout from last year's GASC class by Crystal. I don't think I would choose these papers on my own, but I like how they look. The pictures are of some of the different Metro signs in Paris. I loved how they were all different!

Left Bank

I'm working on getting the second half of our Paris pictures scrapbooked...it's crazy that I have so many left to go! (and that we went in October of 2006!) I'm also working my way through a bunch of layouts that I made at GASC - the Great American Scrapbook Convention. I've been the past few years, and I always make such pretty layouts. But I am horrible about coming home and actually adding the pictures! This one is from a class last year taught by Crystal Jeffrey Reiger. She is an editor at Memory Makers Magazine, and I loved her classes (I took two more from her this year!). The pictures are from our walk through the Left Bank - so pretty!

Page Maps!

I am SO excited - this month, one of my pages has been published in the May newsletter for www.pagemaps.com! It's one of my favorite sites, and to get to create one of the samples was a huge deal for me! I'm pasting the screen shot above, but you can see the actual page at http://www.pagemaps.com/may08sidemaps.htm (scroll down...mine is the 6th one) or in the May newsletter (click on "May Newsletter" on the home page). I'm super excited about it, especially about the picture I used. It's of my grandma, my mom, me, and my sister, and it's one of my favorite pictures in years. (it was taken in 2004 at my sister's engagement party)

Fenway Park

I love these pictures! So much, so, that it's taken me years to scrapbook them! They are from our trip to Fenway with Uncle Stan in 2003. Not only did we go to a game, but we went on a Fenway tour. These are pictures from the tour. The Green Monster seats had opened a week or two earlier, so we were some of the first to sit in them (it was a HUGE deal!). We had an AMAZING time!

Snow Bunny

This page is fun for two reasons. First, it's pictures of my bunnies playing with a bowl of snow (always fun!). Second, I created the page using a page kit from my scrap-friend Jen. We did a swap where we made page kits for each other with our scraps & extras - I made three, so I got three. This is the first one I used - how cute is this? I love how it all looks, and I would never have chosen such sparkly things on my own! I have two more kits to use (plus extras from Jen's kit) - watch out!
