My scrapbooking tip is to keep it simple! I have had these birthday pictures for almost 3 years. I finally decided to get them scrapped! In the past I would pick papers and embellishments for each different layout. Now I grab something that corrdinates and I go with it for the whole event. For this 6 year old boy birthday I cut into my Cosmo Cricket Boyfriend collection and went to town. I made it even more simple by using a Got Sketch scrapbooking sketch for one of the layouts (the Crazy For Legos layout). It took me one night and I was able to scrap the whole birthday. I think the hardest part was thinking up the titles that fast! Cosmo Cricket makes this so easy with the collections they put together. I love that there are stickers and cardstock strips and journaling spots all included in one collection. It really does make it super easy to scrap with.

Thanks for stopping by! Next up is KIM!
