A Bumper Crop

of lightning bugs has caused a flurry of activity at our house. Mariel & my Niece Grace are dashing around the yard chasing literally hundreds of them!

I've noticed some fellow scrapbookers are posting their layouts from the "Big Book of Scrapbook Pages" so I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon :)

This is my favorite layout of the bunch. Sometimes the imperfect pictures are the ones that inspire me the most! Mariel was trying her best to get into and stay in the hammock at my BIL's house during their son Kyle's graduation party. I took a lot of pictures that day but this one jumped out at me.

I used the Cropodile to punch holes in the chipboard circles and inserted gems into them.

The thumbnail photos were the perfect way to symbolize the difficulty of mastering the hammock and life sometimes!

My day ended with happy mail :) A request from Creating Keepsakes for the January issue! Hope you had a good Monday!

I love Lightening Bugs (or Fireflies as I know them). I have so many memories as a child chasing those little guys around. It's amazing what will amuse you ona warm summer's eve. Where I live now doesn't have them and I miss them terribly!

I love your layout! The story is great and the quote is perfect! Plus I love how you put all the action shots down one side ... it really draws attention to them!
