Scrappin' Sisters

My sister, Christy and I have been scrapping together for quite a few years now and I have not posted much of my books so I thought I'd share some of my pictures from my kids birthday books. I have Kamryn's up-to-date (amazing) and need to do Teagan's latest (age 5 in November) and am pretty happy with how they have turned out. They love looking at them and these are easy to keep up with since its just two a year. Scrapbooking can be so overwhelming but I think doing "theme" books like these is such a sense of accomplishment it keeps me going.

Teagan's Half Birthday Party

Teagan's First Birthday was a Cowboy Theme -- mostly 'cause I loved this overall outfit from Gymboree! This is probably my favorite two page spread. I love the linen thread looped around the page like a lasso.

Teagan's 2nd birthday was Veggie Tales. He was a huge fan of Larry the Cucumber (and still likes to watch the videos occasionally) so it was natural to do this as a theme. And Oriental Trading Co. had a great pack of paper that made this super easy.

Teagan has always been quite obsessed with cars and trucks so this was an inevitable theme. We focused on construction vehicles because we had just attended the "Big Truck" even at The Magic House and backhoe loaders were a favorite at that point.

And when he turned 4 we had his class (almost all of them) over for the Pixar Cars themed party. This was a huge party! Yes, I was crazy that year. But it was fun.

I will share Kamryn's birthday pages tomorrow. And this is a good reminder that I need to get Teagan's 5th party pages finished. Hopefully you will see those soon, too!

Thanks for looking :) CHECK OUT MY BLOG CANDY BELOW!!
