It's Scrappin' Saturday!

What a B-E-A-U-TIFUL day! The sun is shining, the birds are singing and I'm wearing a new shirt. Yeah, pathetic, I know. I finally gave in and bought myself some clothes. Mainly summer shirts and a new swimsuit. We have to be prepared for those dog days of July, right? Or Halloween!

Today I've got more from my Mexico scrap book, a 2 page 12x12 layout.

This page shows my roommate getting ready for school the next day, a list of all the places the other students were living and a very worn looking banana tree (hence the monkeys!) I used DSP from the Spanish Stampin' Up! catalog.

The facing page uses the same DSP but incorporates the Daisy #2 die in More Mustard and So Saffron. The Tulip die was used to cut an image out of a So Saffron Square. The little car with luggage is Travel Time, a retired SU set. I also scrapped an Exchange Rate chart and journaled about the Dos Peso cabs. The tiny pic in front is a bad photo of us getting ready to leave. (I'm second from the right in the second row).

With the push for scrapbooking I'm surprised SU discontinued the My Way (#110709) punch with arrows. It's perfect for pointing things out on scrap book pages. It's still available until June 30, so if you're a scrapper I'd consider adding it to my order this month.

Well, that's it for me! A shout out to Bonnie. It's her birthday today! Happy Birthday, friend! I'm off to the fun grocery store! :-( 

Take care and remember to take photos of everyday things for your scrapbook pages!
Much love and joy,



  1. I love that you're scrapping older photos. It gives me hope that I'll work on mine too someday. These are great pages.

  2. I love that you call it scrappin Saturday. I should force myself to do a page each saturday as chores! LOL

  3. Nice pages. Lots of good stuff going on!

  4. Scrapping is hard work for me. It takes me a long time to figure out the layout and match colors etc. I hope it gets easier with time. Hoping my Demo Great Rewards points add up to get My Digital Studio!
