4th of July: Scrapbook Pages

I cross my heart that I will get caught up on my scrapbooking this year. I also crossed my fingers while saying that so it doesn’t count, right? ;)

Finally scrapbooked some older 4th of July photos, as in 2008 old. I’ll consider this a mini victory in my quest to get a little more caught up this year, ha!

4th Parade 

Can we just take a moment to talk about how tiny and little my kiddos are here?! Six years has gone by so fast! Look how cute and adorable they were – ok still are – but gosh I was having major nostalgia as I was scrapping these photos.  Fun fact, the layout was inspired by this layout by my friend Susan. (Yep that Susan, and yep we’re friends in real life - it’s kinda cool.)

I also did an exact page for Gwynie, just subbing out the top photo of Brady for a photo of her.  I’m still doing duplicate pages for both kids and some with the slight variations on colors or photos and yes, I’m still crazy for doing that.

These little flags are so fun! I used them all over the place on these pages! The journaling talks about our love of small town parades. There is just something special about them!

 Fireworks

Their faces crack me up in these photos! We enjoyed fireworks at the park and then headed home for sparklers and our mini fireworks.

The paper was printed with lots of details so I tried to minimize and keep it fairly simple by only adding a few embellishments.

 

Happy 4th

This was another page that the printing/paper design was pretty bold so I just added a few things to the page.

Hard to believe that it’s almost summer time and another 4th of July will be upon us!

I’m once again linking up these pages to the Moxie Fab World Scrapbooking Rocks Challenge. Thank goodness for getting some motivation to tackle stacks and stacks of photos I’ve neglected. for awhile :)

Great pages, Kandi!
I commend you on making an effort to get caught up. So far behind here.
