Sunday Scrappin'

It's time for Sunday Scrappin'!  I finished two pages this week.  These pages took entirely too long to complete, and I blame it on my Cricut ignorance.  This week's lesson:  Do not use cheap paper to print intricate details.  :)  I also learned that the glue I am using on my pictures is causing the paper to roll.  I will be switching to tape as soon as I have a chance to get some!

The lettering on this page is from the Opposites Attract cartridge.  The big O was hand-designed, and I went with a simple corner scissor-cut on the photos to give them more of a professional photo feel.  Here's our little Buckeye Baby: 
 Page 2 is in honor of our California youth group.  They were the first ones outside the family to hold the princess after she was born.  They are such a special group of people, and I definitely want the princess to have at least one page to remember them by!  The writing on this page is from the Opposites Attract cartridge, and the background designs are from Plantin Schoolbook.
I read an article tonight that caught my interest.  A dear friend of mine wrote about her plan to do scrapbooks for her children that will only require 3 nights per year!  I love her ideas, and I think I will be implementing some of them myself.  I think it is a great idea to limit the amount of pages in my daughter's scrapbook and to actually consider the story I want her scrapbook to tell.  Take a look at Rachel's post, and check out her great ideas!

Great pages! Don't you just love your cricut, even tho it's kinda hard to get the hang of? I'm constantly learning something new about it.
