Last month, my children, my sisters and my parents, and an Aunty, all went into the city for the day. It was my Dad's birthday, and he just loves Sydney, so that was how he wanted to spend the day - wandering around.
Any trip around the city with my girls requires a walk through the Royal Botanical Gardens. Within the huge gardens, there are these big ponds, and within the ponds, are eels! They are huge (1 metre - 3ft), and totally gross, and all the kids are totally enraptured! Weird story about the eels. The Garden caretakers drain the ponds out regularly to get rid of the eels (who eat the ducklings) and then refill the ponds with water. Within weeks the eels are back - they are self-cultivating. So bizarre, and really, so gross!
Anyway, the story here on these layouts is about the girls fascination about the eels, and at any mention of being in the city there is the questions of "will we see the eels?".
One layout is for each child and the photos on them reflect who's album the layout will go into. Last two layouts can be either of the younger two girls - photos are the same. Like I said, it's easier for me to do different layouts than do the same layout for each of them - I get too bored too quickly and lose interest half way through the second page.
On layouts #1 and #2 I have used some half size photos and on the last layout, I stared with two 4x6 photos and cut one of the photos in half.
I am so stuck on 8.5x11" layouts now. So quick and easy. Hope you like these ones - please feel free to lift any idea that inspires you!
Now go SCRAP! After you go to work, get laundry done, clean up kitchen, vacuum, iron, make meals, grocery shop, put summer clothes into kids wardrobes cause thank goodness spring is almost here, clean bathroom...yeah, after all that, scrap!
Or you could forget all that stuff, and JUST scrap.
