Early 4th of July ideas

So I recently saw these pages that I haven’t printed yet….from 2 years ago….go figure, and it reminded me of how much I love all the memories that surround the 4th of July. If I am being even more honest I would say that besides projects here and there I don’t really scrap all my photos, not enough time in the day. Now that I had my moment of honesty…….I can begin. A few of these pages were layouts I copied from the amazing crafting chick JAMIE. I love the way she digi scraps. These are digi layouts that are I will probably put in an 8×8 book one day.

On fourth of July this year, take some cute pictures of the details of the the day, through all the craziness. These elements are from Shabby Princess and Designer Digitals.

We really like to be nerds as you can see.
It really is all about the treats for me…

I really wanted these colors to pop, and so I made the picture black and white then left their shirts colored. To do this, all you do is get the magnetic lasso and lasso the parts of the picture you want to stay colored, then go to Select then Select Inverse, which selects the rest of the picture the turn that layer black and white, and there you go!

More sillies.
My baby boy was dancin’ all over the place this day…..so fun. I made my favorite pictures of the sequence pop by leaving them in color, then making others BW with his bright red shirt colored.

I can’t wait for the 4th of July this year :) Happy Scrappin’!!
