Imaginisce Animal Crackers & Boardwalks

I am still going through a huge pile of pictures from last summer. Why does it seem that 90% of the pictures I take are from May to September? And then in the summer I definitely scrap less because we are always out, which leads to this huge pile of unscrapped  photos and stories.

I decided to get a head start this year and start tackling that pile. First up, is this assignment for the 2Peas garden that I posted this morning.
I used Imaginisce's Animal Crackers line with it's bold colors and circus theme. It reminds me of theme parks and boardwalk photos, so I used it to tell the story of our time in Point Pleasant. We spent a fortune for the thrill of winning a cheap little stuffed animal. Oh wait, we didn't win - we all LOST! The sweetest thing was listening to Nico comfort his older cousin who was having a hissy fit because he didn't win. Surprising, since it's usually Nico who has to be reminded that there's always next time. Ha!
I like all of the border stickers that come with this line. These make tying 2-page layouts together easy.
And then there's this date strip from Bella Boulevard that I thought was great for a journaling spot and to add a splash of color. I made the flag from a toothpick and a re-purposed sticker. I keep seeing these flags everywhere and they are so easy to make.

I'll be back in a day or two with a little Cricut mini-album I've been holding on to.
