Finally doing a little scrappin!

Tonight we had sloppy joes for supper. The kids aren't exactly huge fans of this particular choice so as a bribe (yes, we bribe) we told them if they ate their sloppy joes we would go to a carnival tomorrow night. You have to know I only gave them each 1/2 of a hotdog bun of sloppy joe. Well over an hour later Beckett was still sitting at the table. In the end he got so tired of sitting there he, well...fell asleep. Even though it was pretty early we took him upstairs to bed and I had the rest of the night to scrap! YAY! Annabelle actually did some scrappin of her own while I worked so I thought I would share her scrapbook page first. Because I wouldn't give her any of my photos (I only have one copy and no negatives or digital copies of these pictures so I have to be extremely careful not to waste them, otherwise I would have given her some pictures) she decided to draw her own. She went with a playground theme just like my pages but I think hers are much better than mine :)
Her pictures included her and Beckett going on a slide, crossing a bridge, playing basketball, playing on monkey bars, playing on a jungle gym and swinging. I thought it turned out simply lovely!
Here are the pages I worked on. They aren't complete (as usual). I think I may add some type of journaling on the left hand page, bottom right corner - just haven't decided on that yet.
I love these pictures of the kids. They are so honest and true. The kids were just having a wonderful time playing at the park.

The cardstock used was SU. DP was Basic Grey. Stamps and rub-ons are Heidi Grace. Flowers are from Petaloo. Nothing else.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I just discovered your blog and am really enjoying it. I love the layout you did and your dd's layout is so precious. That's definitely a keepsake. : )

I had to laugh about the sloppy joes. My dd is 21 and she just recently told me that she hated sloppy joes the whole time she was growing up. I used to fix them frequently thinking she liked them. lol
