F is for Farm Field Trip: Part 2, A Digital Mini Story Book

I wanted to make a little book with our pictures from the field trip yesterday, and I wanted it to be finished as quickly as possible so we could begin reading it now and as we do our follow up farm activities. My solution, was to use these great page templates I found for free at Epson's Creative Zone. The ones I used for this project can be found here. I opened each page template in PS Elements, dropped in my pictures, and added a little bit of text. Now I can print them out as 4x6 prints slip into a photo album. I can even use their other kits to make more pages and add to our story book of memories quickly.
I am not sure why the text is blurry on some of the pages, I think it might have to do with the way I compressed them before uploading to Blogger, but they are not blurred on the copies we printed out.

Those pages are so cool Katie. You are the journaling queen. I hate doing the journaling part of scrapbooking, but those consultants are always harping me on it.

We also went to Domino Farms when Lindsey(first born) was just 2 years old. The geese were mean >:(

I also have an award for you on my blog. Check it out when you have time.

What a special trip. I love the way you documented it...ALREADY!!
My kids are scared of all animals, not just the big ones. I need to get them over to a zoo and over their fears!
