Edited cause I went outside with the pages and took new pictures. So much better! There's a bit of shadow as a result, but I think it's neat.
I stole some time today to get a couple layouts done. In fact, DH came down at one point and asked if my scrapbooking was a planned event that he didn't know about. (we usually have an understanding when I disappear for a couple of hours). I told him since I had done a ton of dishes and cleaning in the kitchen that I felt I deserved to come down here. He didn't argue. I returned (after doing MORE dishes post dinner) to finish the Wrong Bottle page - that one took me forever to think of a title for!!!!!
Anyhow, here are my latest pages. The Bethany Beach pages go together - one has the beach, the other the journaling of our weekend. I don't like how wide the white title strip is, but I accidentally cut "Bethany" to be larger than I intended and had to move forward from that point. The Bs are actually cut from the sand of a trimmed photo.
This is a page I looked forward to doing, as it was so funny that Natalie was trying to drink her daddy's beer. See how wet her shirt is? That's from the previous sips. She sure made some funny faces that day, but don't worry, she really didn't drink anything, she spit it all out.

OMG!! THe Wrong Bottle LO has me laughing sooo hard. hahahaha That is just great! I love the brackets and the way you put all the pics. And I think your idea of cutting the Bs from the sand on a cropped photo is so cool!

my friend has a DSLR and she just kept snapping pictures of Natalie with the bottle ... I got about 7 more printed than what I used. it was so funny!
btw, the lettering is a brown that matches the shade of the beer bottle. I hate that my camera doesn't take good pictures of my pages! I need a bigger scanner. (or a DSLR)
Those are great and the "wrong bottle" one had me in stitches. Our little Brooklynn got ahold of her dad's beer just the other night. Now I wish I would have had the camera.
Love the bottle pics!!
at the bottle LO! That has to be the funniest lo I have seen! The "B's" are a great idea!

Great pages Gwen! Love how you used a picture on the "B"'s! "Wrong Bottle" page is hilarious. Good job!
Are those the Cuttin' Up & Alphalicious fonts?
Mom to Morgan (10/28/01),Drew (12/20/03) and
The pages turned out great! (it's amazing the difference it makes it taking them outside and taking the pictures -I'll have to try that!)
I just wanted to say that you might want to be cautious about posting the "wrong bottle" photos online... i say that because a mom was put in jail for something similar like that where I live (taking video of her little girl with a cigarette in her mouth and posting it on myspace). Here's the link the video footage if you want to take a look. http://www.wavy.com/global/video/pop...D&rnd=38042131
I know you didn't force your daughter to drink it or anything.. but you never know what could happen if those pictures were in the hands of someone else...
