Scrapbook Pages: Silly Fun

My favorite memories to scrap are always the fun little moments in life.  Recently I've caught up on four of those times, starting with the first this classic moment I think most of us experience with our kid, pasta face!  These pictures always bring a smile to my face and I think the bright energetic colors of the supplies enhance the mood of this mealtime. 
The back of our couch has seen better days, to camouflage it and add some color I like to hang blankets over the back.  They've provided the added benefit of hours of fun for ER.  Over the years she's played Peek-A-Boo in it, turned it into a tent, and put babies in the folded part calling it their cradle.

The supplies for this page are outside of my norm, but using a paper pad complete with sticker alphabet and die cuts made this easy to assemble.  I used paper strips to get a little bit of my own handwriting on the page, something I'm always trying to do more often.
I don't know about your kiddos, but I suspect they're like ER and have a talent for turning anything into a toy.  She still likes to play with our laundry basket, and yes it does still end up on her head from time to time!  It's also been a sled for her babies and a row boat too, aren't imaginations great?

While these pictures on a whole aren't very good, they're dark and blurry they do the trick for me and bring back memories of her little voice singing as she danced around the kitchen.  I used strawberry paper because her tank top and shorts both have the berries on it.  I think the bright colors compensate for the darker ones in the photos.  Another fun touch are the glittery chipboard letters and epoxy charm. 
The last page I just finished over the weekend, these pictures of ER wearing my slipper socks have long stumped me.  I found the inspiration for it, inside of Wendy Smedley's recent book Start Scrapbooking, a library check out.  I highly recommend it, it's got great basics and the designs have clean lines.  It's also a fun one to peruse even if you've been papercrafting awhile, I found many things to sticky note!

The font on the pasta page is adorable! These pages are really sweet...I love the variety of pictures for each layout that you used.

Thank you for your suggestions for the digital layouts! I really appreciate it, especially since I'm such a newbie to it:) It's so much fun, although a bit overwhelming:)
