Lasting Memories #253 - High Flyin' Fun

Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope that you are all enjoying the weekend. We've had a fun weekend filled with going to the pool, celebrating my hubby's birthday, and visiting with family. Today we are ready to relax before starting the new work week.

It's the start of a new month and that means a new theme and a new set of challenges over at Lasting Memories. This month's theme is "Sky High" and the first challenge is to scrap the theme.

I had lot's of ideas for this challenge - photos my hubby took from an airplane window, my son's throwing their Styrofoam airplane around, my husband and daughter on an amusement park ride, but in the end I chose to scrap these photos of my kiddos flying a kite when they were little.

It's hard to believe that 11 years have passed since I took these photos. Time just goes by so quickly, but I am so happy that I can preserve these special memories on a scrapbook page.

I used to take so many photos when my kids were little. Mostly because it was pre digital days and I took more photos than necessary to make sure I got a good shot! Thank goodness for digital cameras and the opportunity to delete those not so great photos before having them printed!

Anyway - I had quite a few photos from this day and wanted to include them all on my layout. When I have a lot of photos from one event that I want to scrap, I always go to my Scrapbook Generation sketch books first. They make it so easy to use a lot of photos on a double page spread. For my layout I used a sketch from their Sketches For Scrapbooking - Volume 6 book. I was able to use some scraps for my strips and I fussy cut the kites out of one of the patterned papers to use as embellishments.

Head on over to the Lasting Memories blog and check out the rest of the design team's layouts. I look forward to seeing your sky high creations this month!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day!
