Challenge #5 - post layouts here

For our next challenge, let's see those Summer Fun pics! The only rule is they have to be outdoor pictures. You could scrap your latest family BBQ, kids in the pool, at the lake, on a walk, playing at the park, backyard, etc.! Can't wait to see what you talented ladies come up with!
Please remember that when posting LO, don't include your siggys. That way it makes it easy to tell which is the actual LO. Smile

am I the first?! :bigblink:

It's a double page layout, but if only one page counts, then I'll use the first (left) page. Wink

This is called Zoo Time! (and it's a get together of two other moms/kids from my son's birth board at the zoo - except one family came from the other side of the country. Fun times! Only got pictures of one of the moms, and I'm missing my youngest in the pictures)

Crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just realized that the picture of my son next to the journaling is upside down. Not sure how I missed that. Anyhow, it was a PITA to get pictures of this layout without flash glare. I will fix the picture tomorrow and will try to get this post edited then.

I like it, too! And the picture being upside down still looks good. I actually kind of like it because then you can see his face from a different perspective, it makes it sillier. Biggrin

I did my page for this challenge yesterday. I guess I'll post it now.

This is the first layout I've done using a photo as the background. I thought it worked well since it was the flowers we were looking at anyway. This was outside a museum we were going into, it was so gorgeous.

The journaling says: While we try to teach our children all about life, they teach us what life is all about.

wow, that's an awesome page! and I love how the background turned out. (as an aside, my son's birthday party was at a bowling alley - I've contemplated using a a picture of one of the bowling balls as the background for his page, just not sure how it would look)

The zoo page is just too cute! I love how you put all the photos on there and it still doesn't look cluttered. Oh why oh why can I not do that?! :? And the flower LO is awesome too!!! Beautiful! This is gonna be another hard challenge to pick my favorite I can already tell.

Well its my first time putting a lo up for the challange, but I thought I would give it a try. The pictures are from Aug 2003 :oops: but all my current pictures are still on disk/computer waiting to be printed, I'm so far behind. I'm not so sure I like how the lo turned out with all the pictures.

I love those layouts! Christy, you did a great job including so many photos. It doesn't look cluttered at all, either. And Sarah, for your second page, that is awesome! I love the colors. And Madelyn (my DD) has that same floaty. Hehe.

Oh how cool! My parents had stayed there too when they were first married. I was kind of nervous staying over the water but it was really neat.

Jeena's first popsicle at her Aunt Sasa's birthday party on June 10, 2007. We were all amused at how serious she was while she was eating!!

I decided to try my hand at a two-page LO. This is my first ever. Smile


These pics were taken on a trip to the park just yesterday! Lol I knew I was going to be scrapping with some girlfriends today, so I got them printed at the Wal-Mart kiosk so I could do these.
The journaling reads "It started out as a rainy Summer afternoon, but the sun came out and we headed to the park to play. July 30, 2007"

Ok, so I tried. Not what I wanted it to be, but all that my DARN computer would let me do. It took two stupid days.....
