Weekend Fun - Part I...

I wanted to post some photos from our weekend and it seems I'm trying to download too many photos to fit in one post, so this is in two parts.

On Saturday morning my brother dropped the kids off (Katie, 12; Emily, 9; and Josh, 4) and we took them to lunch and a movie (Over the Hedge is very cute). On the way back home, we stopped at a scrapbook store so the girls could pick out some supplies for our craft project...we made mini-scrapbooks using paper lunch bags (I got the idea from a scrapbook magazine). You fold the bags in half, hole punch them, and use ribbons or fibers to bind them. I helped the girls with the initial assembly of the book and they took it from there. Katie did a "best friends" book to give as a gift and Emily did a book with photos from a Hawaii trip. Considering thier ages they are SO creative and are definitely scrapbook divas in the making. Here they are hard at work...

Here's their finished books along with their favorite layouts...

It sounds like you all had a great time! I love the quilt, too!

Looks like a fun project and the girls did a great job on the books. Creativity must run in your family.

Emily's scrapbook was excellent! I loved the backround paper on her "You Are Here" page!
