Hooray! A scrapbook page!!

Hello! I'm finally getting around to posting again!  Between visiting friends and family, and trying to downsize our 'stuff', I haven't been very crafty.  I keep thinking that once all of my cleaning is finished I will have lots of time to create. But for now, I'm doing my best to squeeze in a few cards and scrapbook pages as I get a chance.

I did manage to get a scrapbook page made after we returned from our trip to Chicago.  I have a ton of photos that were recently printed and I am really trying to work my way through them and get a few more books completed.  Besides, using up supplies and getting photos put away is cleaning right?! That's what I told my DH anyway!

The photo is of my youngest DD when she received an award at school and her name was listed on the school's sign.  I remember being so glad that she wanted to pose by the sign since I couldn't get her older sister to do that when she won an award a few years earlier.

I hadn't made a banner in a while and I thought since it was a celebratory page, the banner would work well.  I also used our school colors making it easy to coordinate everything! I also managed to squeeze in a few new goodies!  I used the basic black bakers twine (a new color option), and the Alphabet rotary stamp was used to put the date on the page.  That thing is HUGE and will be getting a lot of use on my pages!  

I have several other new items waiting to be used and hopefully I'll get around to using them and sharing with you soon!  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you find some time to be creative and have a wonderful day!
