Stampbook Saturday with Jenny

Hi there! It's me again! I have a few pages to show you today, that I made for my Snapbook (Simple Stories). Snapbooks seem most like a cross between Smashbooks and Project for Life. There are pages that are photo sleeves and then there are journalling/ smashing pages as well. This is my first go at this kind of scrapbooking (I am guilty of having purchased both Smashbooks and Project for Life, but have not used either yet).

Just a few weeks ago, my little family packed up and went on our annual trek to visit my family in Victoria, British Columbia. We decided to take a detour on the way home and headed into Washington, and then Idaho, on our way home to Alberta. If you have never been to Victoria, it is a beautiful city! Anyway, we took a ferry from Sydney to Ana Cortes, Washington. It was such a gorgeous trip, sailing right through the San Juan Islands. I loved it! 

The first page, in the two page layout, shows pictures of us on the ferry.

Our little pirate friend and the sentiment are from the set Shiver Me Timbers. The fish down on the bottom are from Aquaholic.

The second page shows a few pictures of the boys at this really AMAZING restaurant in Seattle that we hit up on our first night there. It was called The Crab Pot and was so fun!!! My hubby and I ordered some kind of feast that they literally dumped on the table, after covering it with news paper, putting bibs on us, and arming us with wooden mallets and thick wood cutting boards to eat/ pound on!!! The kids of course, were gagging and complaining about the smell of the crab, prawns, mussels and clams that we were gorging ourselves on! lol! Poor landlocked little prairie mice! No taste for ocean cuisine!

I used the lobster and crabs from the set Beach Bums and 'caught them' in mesh net ribbon!  I also anchored the sentiment (HAHAHA!) with one of the critters. The title is Thickers and black CS letters that I cut using dies.

 I hope that you've enjoyed a little peek into my life! Adding stamps to your scrapbook layouts is a fun and economical way to add pizazz to those pages! I encourage you to dig through your stash of TSG stamps and find one, or a combination like I did, that will work for your photos!
