I am happy to report that the dance recital went quite well and our daughter was immensely proud of herself! She loves dancing and all things girly, so she had a wonderful time last night!
After we got home and put the kids to bed, I made this layout using an old Simply Scrappin' kit and the new page protectors. I love the ease with which you can create scrapbook pages in this style! While I can't say that I want to create all of my scrapbooks using this style of pages, I started doing a week in review album called Project Life (idea of Becky Higgins).
To keep up with it, I have been journaling our daily activities through Cozi, a free app that is very handy! When I am ready to scrap a particular week, I copy/paste the journaling into a word document that I made to have the size I need for the album - this week I needed 6 X 4" journaling spots. After printing on Whisper White, I usually use a few strips of scrap paper or stickers to accent these and give them some color.
This 4X4" size is great to include a lot of pictures. Or here I mixed pictures with little accents for a nice balance. I did add a few non-SU items (Jolee's Boutique) that I found on clearance in the big box store (HL). I also added a few Springtime Wishes stamps for accents.
By the way, did you notice my ribbon on my Easter tag? It is an additonal scrap of paper that I folded and cut to look like a piece of ribbon!
I hope you'll give these new page protectors a try - these are so easy to use and make scrapbooking such a quick breeze!
