You should have arrived at this first stop in the ScrapMatters blog train from the SM team blog and your next stop will be at Britt’s blog.  Have fun on your journey.  If you end up skipping the tracks the master route is on the SM team blog.

Time goes so fast!  It seems like not too long ago SM was celebrating our first birthday.  Every year just keeps getting better.  I am so thankful for all of the wonderful people I have met through ScrapMatters, both in real life and online.  Life is just really good.

This year the theme for our birthdaybash is a summery, picnic in the park kind of feeling to it. I hope you were all able to see our fantastic collab that is FREE by making a one-time $15 purchase in the shop.

While summer is coming to an end, here in the northern hemisphere at least, there is still time to play and enjoy the fun activities that summer brings.  Iwas born and raised and still  live in the Seattle, WA, USA area, home of gray, rainy days much of the year.  Because of all that gray, my mom used to take us kids to visit her cousin in eastern Oregon, where it is hot and dry, every summer when I was growing up.  I remember going to see Wallowa Lake and picnicing in many state parks.  But what I remember most from those hot summer days was floating down inner tubes in Catherine Creek.  The creek was perfect for kids to cool off in.  Not too deep, the current wasn’t too swift, it was just heaven floating down the creek.  I don’t have any pictures from those days to scrap, but if I did, this quick page would be so easy to quickly scrap the memories.  I hope you enjoy this quick page, you will find all kinds of freebies along the blog train this year, not just quick pages.


Remember to head on over to Britt’s blog next.

Heritage Layout–Mary Ann Houston Scott 1896-1975

Mary Ann Houston and Unknown FriendThis is my great grandma Mary Ann Houston Scott and according to the back of the picture “an unknown friend.” She was only 15 years old at the time, but I still feel bad that no one knows who the other girl was. Her family was probably living in Woods Co., Oklahoma at that time.

This is a layout I made from another layout.  I recycled my layout to get it to fit my needs!  😀  The large layout is for the monthly quick page exchange we do at ScrapMatters.  This month the kit was Brown Eyed Girl by Britt-ish Designs it was so fun to scrap with.

QP Layout November

Quick Page Brown Eyed Girl

A quick page exchange is so fun, first you make a scrapbook layout and then you take away all of the writing and titles from the page.  Then you crop out the part of the page that has the picture in it leaving an image like the one above. There are more detailed instructions at ScrapMatters–links below. The white rectangle is actually transparent and you can just slip your photo under the page.  Then just add journaling and a title and you’re finished! You can find more information about the quick page exchange here and the kit here.

Watch for a Christmas themed Quick Page Exchange coming soon!
