Simple part 1 -Happy

I'm one of those people that will leave their computer on all day (usually). I also have it randomly flash my pics as my screensaver. The other day there was a pic I hadn't seen in awhile so I pulled it up & came across a few others from that day. I felt the urge to scrap them right away so I printed them off & here we go.

This is from April of 2007, Marissa was almost 6 & Gianna was almost 3. They look so different yet the same.

Kept it all very simple which was so out of the norm for me but I like how it came out. And it's DONE!! I guess it's good to think out of the box now & then!

Not sure about anyone else, but when it comes to American Crafts papers, I horde them! I think they're so pretty but when I try to use them usually I go blank. I've mentioned this to Mary whose another "scrap idol" of mine & she said that with American Crafts "less is more" . So when I saw these pics I was remined of these papers & went with it. Thanks Mary!!
