It has been a long time since I sat down and completed a few scrapbooking pages. I am the furthest behind as I have ever been!

So, I made the time to attend a crop day. I worked very hard and completed most of the missing pages of for my 2007 family book. I am pretty excited to share a few of the pages I completed!

This is the front page of my family album. I placed two photos of the kids taken in Feb 2007 and in Dec 2007, as well as a family shot from Dec 2007 and a quote about the importance of family. It is very simple, but I think it shows how much the kids have grown in the year!

This page is chuck-full of photos I took in June. I wanted to use a layout that allowed me to put lots of photos - I think this one works. I love the photo of Mags in her sun glasses. I also like photos of each of the kids in the swings.

This page took much thought, lots of tears and was created with love and respect. My uncle lost his battle to cancer last June. This page is a tribute to him.

For David's birthday the kids (with the help from my parents) put on a circus act. It was so cute! I had to do a fun circus tent theme to show off their great acts. I did the tent free-hand...I think it turned out really nice!

I love Madigan's facial expressions in each of these photos: a bit surprised, interested, then pleased! Yummy Good!

Thanks for looking! I now just have 2 pages to complete for the Family 2007 book. In Madigan's First Year Book I am in August - so, I hope to finish that this month...and then try to catch up and complete 2008 - and in no time, I will have to start 2009!

I'll echo the sentiments of the other Sunday Scrappin' ladies when I say I'm so impressed with the way you layout your photos! So many to a page!! I think I'm just too scared to crop once in awhile...great work and so glad you have joined us!

Great pages! I love the second set of pages with so many photos but they don't look crowded. The tent is SO cute, I thought it was a diecut or something premade! A wonderful tribute to your uncle. Everything looks great, good job! Have a great week!

Love the carnival tent! That is so clever! And I'm glad I'm not the only one who sometimes tries to get as many pix on a page as possible! Keep up the good work!

Wow. That is so cool. I am jealous.

I wish I had the patience and creativity to put together beautiful pages like those. Such wonderful treasures for you and your children as they grow older. You should have a date page now for when they are old enough, to bring out on that first date night.
