Pinky Princess Layouts and New Scrap Friends!

I'm finally able to post, hooray!  My computer is unable to upload any more pictures (memory full - needs to be fixed!!) and post anything to my blog :( so I needed to find a way to get the pictures from my phone to my blog and I was finally able to do it (thank you Picasa Web Albums!!).  This week I introduced some friends from work to the world of scrapbooking - I love doing that!  Since they hadn't really ever scrapped before, I decided to prepare a little coordinated set for each to get them started.  I made little containers using Tags, Bags, Boxes & More and in them I put some ribbon, buttons, bling and pop dots.  I then put a couple sheets of cardstock and patterned paper under that matched what was in the containers.  They came into my scrapbook suite and were in awe (it does kinda look like a store, lol!) and after scrapping with lots of my toys, they were hooked!!!  Check them out below, with completed pages and all!  I'm so proud!

As for me, in my cleaning and reorganizing of my room, I came across this old, precut diecut sheet (the kind that you punch out of a page) that were super cute and girly, so I decided to make something with them.  I added pictures of my little Sofi playing dress up.  The picture on the left is her dressed up as a princess the day of the Royal Wedding (its on the TV in the background) because while we were watching it together, she wanted to be a princess, too!

After I'm done scrapping a page, I have all of these leftovers and the thought of having to find a place for them is a little dreadful for me, so a lot of times, I try to create a quick page or card with the leftovers, instead.  The page below is the outcome of just that.  At night, after the kiddos went to bed, I had these few diecuts leftover and decided to create a page with them.  I wanted a premade title, so I went to Once Upon a Princess and found a great one for the page and then scrolled through my pictures for ones I hadn't scrapped that worked with the page and found the perfect ones (they even highlight her butterfly bow, matching the page, lol!). This is what the final layout looks like...

So, as always, thanks for stopping by!
Be sure to leave a comment and let me know you were here!
Have a great weekend!
