Scrapbooking Shortcut

I have tons of pictures that I just haven't had time to scrapbook. Plus, they are for specific events and don't quite fit in the Vernon family album. So I bought a couple of album kits made by SEI to get some of these pics into albums and off my to do list. The top album is a 4x6 album and it came in a plastic sleeve. I think it's called Orchid Bouquet or something to that effect. I scrapbooked the party my sister had after she and her husband had gotten married in Las Vegas. I was 9 months pregnant and so I was pretty tired at the time but I was the resident photographer and took all of the pictures and my stepkids helped with the set up and decorating.

These pics are from a 6x6 scrapbook in a box kit from SEI. It has all of the directions, cut pieces and basically everything you need to complete an album in a couple of hours. These pics are from my cousin's wedding in Hawaii. My immediate family was all there but my husband and stepkids were not, a little expensive for one thing and they had school too. This album was the wedding part of our Hawaii trip. Now, preserved in an album and done. No guilt here either. Even though I have tons of paper and embellishments to do my own. I just don't have the time. I have so much to scrapbook with my two little ones and family events!

If you don't have the time, energy and not really "in" to scrapbooking, you might want to consider one of these kits!
Lily's 2 months old! Here's a rare pic of us together. Wow, I look kinda young in this picture, wierd, you can't see all my gray. Not bad for 35 huh? Isn't Lily super cute? Of course I'm biased!

Lily is beautiful just like her mama. You look more like the teenage babysitter. I am 20 years older than you and most people think I am my daughter's friend (she is 33) so I guess the Loreal works. Smile today-the sun is shining.

What a cute and adorable baby Lily is. Are you sure you're 35? Sure don't look it. I'm jealous.

Hi Cindy! I love this idea. The layouts are great and the colors are so cute together. I wanted to also comment that Frantic Stampers (one of your sites you visit) lives here in Lexington, Ky and I've been to her Stamp Camps. She's awesome! Hugs,
