Last Saturday, as previously mentioned, I attended the 4th Annual MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) Scrapbooking Luau. This was the second one I attended and again, I really enjoyed it. It is so nice to be able to sit and scrapbook and chat with other like-minded individuals without the constant interruptions of home. And no, I am not a mother of a preschooler. My kiddies are just either side of 30.

This year's project for me was to take photos my older daughter had selected for her album and put some in a scrapbook for her. I did 15 pages! Well, not totally as some titles and journaling was left off in favor of getting the pages constructed. Today I will share with you the first two pages.

The first page introduces our older daughter and the paper used was some Paper Studio miscellaneous packs and My Mind's Eye "Penny Lane." For the life of me, I am drawing a blank on where I got the SVG file for Daughter, but I really like how it turned out. The Penny Lane is card stock and glittery, so I am sure I am going to need to put a new blade in my Cricut for it.

The second page also used paper from Penny Lane, that and some shapes cut on my Cricut. 

I did experiment on further pages, sometimes using part of a 12 x 12 scrapbook paper and sometimes using 8.5 x 11 paper. I do the scrapbooks in letter size format, which I prefer. To me the 12 x 12 books are just too big!
