This weeks class was supposed to be a Fishing Layout, but for whatever reason, I had no one attend class that night! My guess, it was 89 degrees and extremely humid and I think that everyone was just trying to remain cool and that it probably would be too hot in the back of the store to do scrapbooking, but several kits were sold and I still have a few more left if anyone else is interested. I truly love my layout…it is supposed to have a boy or a girl fishing on it, but since I have both girls and boys and they all love to go fishing, I decided to use both of the diecuts on my layout. I love Lisa’s cuts, they are so adorable and easy to put together. This has got to be one of my favorite layouts that I have done in the past few weeks, I hope you will like it also.
This is a close-up of the cutout.
If you look closely, I used some metalic ink on my title “The Big Catch” I also used my Cuttlebug to emboss the title, I think it just added that little extra to this page.

I love these pictures that I put on here, it is of my son Chris and his brother Sam, they loved to go fishing with their dad. It was nice doing this layout this week for me as Chris’s birthday was 2 weeks ago and he would’ve been 23 years old. So it’s nice to be able to get this picture into the album to be able to share it with it our family. Chris was quite the little “ham” if you can’t tell by looking at these pictures…I am going to make another layout of fishing as I still have a few more pictures I can put on it.
Love you and Miss you Chris.
The day I was working on this layout, our son Sam went fishing and he caught an 18 inch rainbow trout and so as I was looking through the pictures, I found one of their dad, probably 10 or 15 years ago when he caught an 18 inch trout also. Gotta love my fishermen!
On this page, I decided to do my journaling on the side and the pictures I chose were ones of my daughters so I could use the little girl diecut on here…she actually was a cutout for roasting marshmallows, but thanks to Make the Cut, I was able to alter her and turn her into a fishing girl. :) Anyhow, in this layout are two Korean students that our oldest daughter, Erica, had in school in China and they came to the USA for the summer with her…in the 6 weeks they were here, we introduced them to many things and one was fishing. They were naturals. Also in these photos is our baby girl “Princess” Hannah…she did really good casting, unfortunately, no fish were injured on this day :) We had such a good time, the kids fishing and me with my camera! The picture above is a day of fishing with Sam and Dad. I love remembering these fun times and now I have it in my album and journaling done. Enjoy!
