The Wild Center using the Creative Scrappers Sketch

Had so much fun with this sketch from Creative Scrappers! I had some photos to use that a small boy brought home from his field trip that were perfect!

They were nothing amazing, but were ones he took himself with a borrowed camera. MY OLD CAMERA, in case you are wondering. He has a propensity to take things apart so I was thankful it came back whole. 

I of course have other photos he took too I didn't include. An extreme close up of his best friend's face, eight videos of the same frog, you can imagine the rest.... 

I wanted to document his field trip to The Wild Center because he never believes me. In fact, he had gone to The Wild Center a few years back and was pretty sure I was the one confused. AS IF. I have a scrapbook page from that visit too!!

A close ups of my die-cut pine trees that I have used many times over. But when you often have to scrap The Adirondack Mountains, they are a good go to shape!

I printed the logo on the bottom. I don't use my 12 by 12 printer nearly enough, but when I do, it makes me so happy!

Another shape I used was a bird silhouette photo that Luke took and I fussy cut around it. Wanted that to give my page more of a flavor of the mountains and the wildlife. 

Honestly, it looks like  really neat place to visit. I have never gone but have great stories about the Otters and that bridge looks AMAZING!! Happy Tuesday!

  2. HI.. that is a fabulous take on the sketch and great use of all those photos and I reckon you could do a page on the 'other' photos your son took.... it would be funny!! I love the hawk with the wings out like that! great layout!!

  3. Like the design of this page, great pics of the WIld Center. Those trees add the perfect touch. Way to go.

  4. Nice! Perfect touch with the trees and eagle! I like how all the focus is on the pics!

  5. Love giving kids the camera, 3/4 of them are com,plete rubbish but they have such a different view of what's important to them. When they get older, selfies are all they take which is good because they are the only photos where I can see their faces, they hide when I get the camera out!

    love the LO, and the hawk is esp cool! xx

  6. So much beautiful nature. You are so lucky to live where you do. I'm loving the eagle and the trees.
    Beautiful pictures.

    You made me think it would be fun to scrap a page of whatever images kids take. Would love to decorate and embellish around gum stuck to the bottom of a shoe or the random ceiling shot. :)

  7. I love that you scrapped his photos Mitra! You are the best Mom. This page is completely fabulous!! I especially love the bird. So cool.

  8. You rocked the sketch, Mitra! Multi-pic LOs scare me. I didn't even know that printers came in a 12x12 size...LOL!

  9. Looks like an amazing place indeed and you have done such a great job with that sketch!! Thanks for using one from Creative Scrappers!! Love your printing and that fussy cut eagle - just tooooooo cool...

  10. How fun! Great use of the sketch and LOVE the bird pic turned into an element! So envious of the 12x12 printer...I'm still doing research before committing to the purchase!
    I always love seeing my girls pics and videos. Sometimes you see and hear things that they would never tell you about otherwise!

  11. Fabulous layout! Love those great trees and teh bird.


I LOVE comments. Come on. Leave me one. They make me smile!
