A Graphic45 Mini album

I found these Graphic 45 papers TransAtlantique for my pictures from the train ride I and my daughters and grandchildren took last June to Santa Barbara and they were perfect for a mini book!! So excited!! It was a great trip! We took Amtrak to Santa Barbara, then caught an open air tram, for 25 cents each, to the Zoo. The tram ran right along the beach and the weather was awesome, the kids loved it! The Santa Barbara Zoo is a small friendly more hands on Zoo than the typical big city zoo's and it is one of our favorites! After our visit at the zoo we rode the open air tram back to the beach, at the pier and we were able to enjoy a little bit of time on the sand and in the surf before we headed back on the train. The kids loved it, the adults loved it and it was a great day that is also a great memory, so I love that I was able to put together a book about this day and the Graphic45 papers lent to that memory in preserving it. Here is my mini album:

Thanks for taking a peek!

We Love Our Members Contest

At Treasured Scrapbooking!!! And we want YOU!!! Its such a fun contest, weekly prompts, a great message board community, and PRIZES!!!

Treasured Scrapbooking - We Love OUr Members Contest
Annual Contest
March 1st-28th

Please join us for a four week long contest involving challenges, games and prizes!

Each Monday morning (or late Sunday night) I will issue a challenge based on a design principle, and you will have until Sunday at midnight PST to complete your layout. If you don’t complete a layout, you are out of the contest. Entries will be “judged” by the Design Team and given a score according to the following parameters:

1. Following the challenges directions
2. Photographs
3. Overall composition
4. Success of using design principle

It sounds complicated, but I PROMISE it will be fun! Each design principle will be something easy, most likely it will be things you already do! Digital scrappers are welcome to join in on the fun, but there may be occasion where paper scrapping will be necessary, so be careful to read the challenge outlines each week.

At the end of the four weeks, the participant with the highest score will be our grand prize winner. There will also be a random name draw winner and a weekly winner. There will be games and prizes to go along with the fun all month long!

Hope to see you! All Newbies welcomed!
