Last set of scrap book pages pics....sorry they're blurry...camera died and then my phone was dying too.

This week I'm going to post pictures of the scrap pages I created while at White's Wildwood Retreat.  I tried to use "retired" and "old" supplies as you'll be able to tell if you know current colors and supplies for Stampin' Up!.  I hope you enjoy my scrap pages.  You will also notice that most of these pictures are from 2001, 2002, and 2003.  I tried to keep things simple so I can complete more projects.  When I create a scrap page, if it has my kids in it, I create on for each of the kids pictured.  So if I have pictures with all 3 of my kiddos, I create 4 sets of pages.  They all love having their OWN scrap book!

The Woodson Art Museum is such an interesting place.  It was a beautiful day and we decided to just visit the statues that were in the courtyard area.  The boys loved seeing these "animals" so close.

Colors: So Saffron, Handsome Hunter, Chocolate Chip, and Whisper White

After we went to the museum, we went to Marathon Junction for ice cream and some rides.  Trenton and Jeremiah enjoyed the train ride but Alex didn't.  He went on the Elephant ride instead, with Daddy close by.  After this beautiful day, the boys were surely tuckered out!

Colors:  Chocolate Chip, Handsome Hunter, Wild Wasabi, and Whisper White

Really sorry for the blurry picture.  This scrapbook page shows our family picture and a 5 generation picture.  These photos were taken on the day that Jeremiah and Alexander were baptized.  Since I was an unwed mother, my priest at my hometown church wouldn't baptize my son.  When Brian and I got together we started attending Mass at OLP with Father Logan, who is sensational!  We were able to get both boys baptized together.  This was a great family gathering.  Great Great Grandma Dorothy Schug, Great Grandma Joan Hargraves, Grandma Rhonda VanDerLeest, Mom Elizabeth Giles, and Son Alexander Giles.  This picture was taken in 2002 and Great Great Grandma is still alive and well.

Here I was trying to showcase a couple things.  One which you can kind of see is the way that our paper packs of designer series paper fit so well together.  I used three different patterns on this layout and all coordinate so well.  The other thing I wanted to show...but is super blurry...is how our accessories coordinate as well.  The flower on the brad is a replica of the flower in the paper.  I love to add these little details in my journaling boxes to break them up if they're on the larger side.
