  5. Thank you Ladies for all your wonderful comments! Thanks to Genny for seeing my scrapbook pages on SCS website, and encouraged me to submit my pages on Hand Stamped Sentiments!! =)

  6. First of all, good for you for catching up on your scrapbooking. I stopped years back with my first 2 kids when they were 2...they are almost 7 now. I did do one for my new little guy, though. I really like the way you incorporated the colors and the photos with the simply scrappin kit. One of my faves!! Thanks for going "beachy" with us this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

    1. Thanks Krista! My husband and I travel a lot (for his work), so it's been difficult to keep up-to-date on scrapbooking. So, I was so happy when I got My Digital Studio software, so now I can do my scrapbooking while on the road and finally get up-to-date! =)
      I know it's difficult to scrapbook with little feet running around.... so many other things to do! Thanks for taking the time to comment and the opportunity for me to participate in the challenge!
