I actually did it!

Really, truly.  I really did!  I completed a couple of scrapbook pages!!!!!!
It seems like ages since I have done a scrapbook page.  And boy oh boy is it hard after making so many cards!  It wouldn't seem like such a difficult thing to do but for some reason I seem to have completely forgotten how to do a scrapbook page.  And I have a jillion pictures to scrapbook so I better get back into the swing of layouts!

Scrapbooking was my first love and the reason I even got into paper crafting.  And it does feel a little like "coming home" when I sit down and work on pages.  And I love to remember the special times in the photos.  

The first layout is pictures of my youngest daughter feeding our chickens.  I MISS having a chicken house so much.  I just love the look on her face in the middle picture.  I remember how tickled she was that the chickens were so hungry and coming right up to her.

The second layout is of our son and his baseball team.  We have been to so many games for our children.  And I am always so proud of my children when I sit and watch them play the games they love.  Although I have to say that there have been so many close games and hours of sitting on the edge of my seat during the championship game.
