Scrapper in the making!

Jack fell asleep really early on Monday night and I wanted to finish working on a mini album. Macy asked me if she could scrapbook with me! Well, of course!!! I always give her my reject pictures, ones that I print and don't like them for some reason. She just loves having them!

I gave her one of my bins of ribbon, some markers, rub ons, stickers, and old patterned paper and let her have at it. She decided that she just wanted to use her construction paper, ribbon and markers!

She managed to do about 10 pages in an hour! Here are my two favorites.





Aren't they cute? Now I need to find some sort of album that will hold construction paper size! I think the sheets are 9x11. Maybe I'll just give her a 12x12 album.

This is what I was working on. I finally pushed myself to do a sheer album! I saw this Maya Road arrow album and immediately saw a house. I turned it counter clockwise and did just that, made it into a house! I used tons of fun goodies on here and am happy with my first try at one of these!! I'm not much of a mini book girl, but like this one!





I know Macy would just LOVE to hear comments about her pages, so if you could leave her a little praise, I'd be so thankful!!

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!!

I love your album pages. You have a very creative, artistic eye. The colors and the way you put the pictures on the pages are really beautiful! I love the ribbons, and the pictures you drew, too.

(ps. Mom, LOVE the house album, too!) How great that the two of you can do this together....soon Macy will be making all sorts of little albums as gifts.

Aimeslee said...

I have LOTS of praise to leave!

Rachael, that is a fab mini-book. My favorite page was the one with the kids and the tree branch - looks like they are in the dang tree!

And Miss Macy: I was just admiring those family drawings that you bordered your photo with. Love how you also put the ribbon borders on the photos of you, too. Did you decide where everything on the pages went? You've an eye for style! Great job!

Ask mom for some thin 12x12 cardstock she never uses, and attach each of your pages to a cardstock sheet, the you can decorate even more! LOL

Sandra Evertson said...

Her pages are absolutely Darling!
And your house is a Masterpiece!
