Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop! You should be arriving her from the very talented Lisa.

While some may argue that I am not young, I have only been scrapbooking and card making for about 7 years. So I feel like I am just a baby in learning all there is to know in the scrapbooking and card making world!

One of my favorite things to do is scrapping pictures of my children. The photos I chose for today's project are some of my favorite things memories. When Scott was little he was positive that dinosaurs lived in a wooded park near his grandparents. He kept asking to go see the "dinosaurs" whenever we went to see them. We were clueless until one day he started making growling noises at the park entrance. He told us he was calling the dinosaurs!

So needless to say it only made sense that the pages should be a dinosaur layout! LOL
And what could be more young than a toddler and dinosaurs millions of years old hanging out at the park? LOL


Here's a close up of page one:


 And a close up of page 2:

Here's a close up of my custom designed dinosaurs that are also available for purchase (Please email me using my contact me button if interested in purchasing dinosaur embellishments) 

Supplies:

Embelishments: Stickles, Hobby Lobby Ribbon, Dinosaurs Dress Up Embellishments
