Some Scrappy Fun.

Recently, I won a copy of Quick & Easy Photo Albums from this amazing blogger.

No. Let me back up. In June of 2004, we flew to Maui, Hawaii for Matt's high school best friend's wedding. Best vacation we've ever taken. We took Anna along with us (still nursing), but left Abbie at home with my mom. We took a ton of pictures, and about 2+ years ago, I had a good handful of them printed. I didn't really want to incorporate them into my regular scrapbooks because I wanted to do something special with them.

Enter the above magazine.

It shows how you can take regular 1up or 2up or 6up or whatever photo albums and turn them into fabulously fun scrapbooks. And so I did. I purchased the cheapest 1up album I could find for $1.99 at Target and went to town. I completed the entire album in two evenings.

I just wanted to throw this out there as an option for those of you who might like to scrapbook, but are too afraid to delve deeply into the mysterious and evil world of scrapbook supplies.

I used about 6 sheets of 12x12 paper, some paper flowers, some letter stickers and some other random stuff. The album has 15 spreads. I love it. I highly recommend it.

It is so cute. I was having a little bit of a hard time envisioning exactly what you were talking about before and it is so cute.

Very cute! I have done one w/ 3 up and used it as my kiddos baby books. I had gotten so swamped w/ pictures and that really helped me pick the best and not have to do elaborate scrap pages. Love it!
