My oldest dd at two years old--oh so sweet! We took her outside to let her try out her skates and play with sidewalk chalk. I've been experimenting with different layout techniques. I normally love to add flowers and tons of embellishments but I love the background paper so much with this one that I left it bare. I'm going through all my old photos so more to come:)

My dd in her pirate costume. She definitely is not a pirate princess--nothing girlie about this shipmate. She'd rather be scrubbing the decks with the guys! I did a lot of inking on this page to give the paper an aged look. I fell in love with this Prima flower that is dark olive green netting--kind of matched her costume. tfl!!

I'm trying to discipline myself to scrap at least one page for one of my children per week. I've been wanting to try some big scraps of denim material on a page and thought it would go great with this photo. This is my dd at 3 years old and she was just too sweet!
My mind is always thinking of new things to alter or decorate that serve a functional purpose. I decorated this metal bucket with scrapbook paper, denim and a robot button. My son keeps his crayons in it and I print mini free coloring pages and stick them in there. Just some ideas--use rub-on transfers and decorate and fill with baby items for a baby shower; tie balloons on the handle, add a child's name with chipboard or glue wooden letters the outside and fill with little goodies.
