Yesterday I got a urge to create another mini album .. I wanted it semi simple to cut, nothing fancy so I cut tags using my Cricut Tag,Bags and Boxes cartridge aaaaaaaaaaaaand I used up another cereal box that won't be taking up any space at the city dump...LOL
Its the perfect thickness to be able to cut with using your regular blades..
I then got another urge to start using up some of the many scraps that I saved up through the years..
The story behind the album is our move to Finland back in 1996..
It changed all of our lives forever..
Here are some close ups and all details:
Page #1.. My boys and hubby at the airport..We were waiting to board our plane..
the mess on the table isn't from us, it was like that when we sat down.. Honest!! :O)
Here is Adam a.k.a Mr.Giggle monster.. He has such a sweet smile..
Some photos of my boys while we were staying at my moms..
I had to use this photo cause of the size of the tub.. Its tiny!!
what a life style change having no big tub to relax in..LOL
My boys laying down watching tv.
I added a journaling tag with our story and on the back is another photo of my boys..
Here is a photo of Aaron standing in front of all the moving boxes that we had shipped here,
which had things like photos and toys, etc..
My boys laughing.. We must of just come from outside cause they are wearing their
play clothes.. Aaron is laughing..
My boys were 2.5 and 1.5 years old , Amber was almost 7yrs old when we moved..
Kids will be kids.. Even though they were pretty good about NOT touching Gramma's things, I think Aaron grabbed one of her ceramic masks and tried it on...LOL
O-Ohhh! Don't let gramma see this picture.. :O)
