A Sunny Afternoon at the Park

I have been collecting cilp art from PCCrafter for about three years now with the intent to use it in something some day.  Every once in a while I will make a card with it, but mostly I just look at it, which is fun but it doesn't seem particularly practical to me.

This week, however, I decided to DO something.  Last Sunday afternoon my youngest son and I took my granddaughter, Allie to the park near our house.  This of course, provided "Oma" (that's me) with the perfect opportunity to take pictures. 



Of course, pictures MUST be scrap booked, so I put together these two pages.  They will go in an "Allie" album I am making in Picaboo (You can download Picaboo for free from  I made a Picaboo Christmas album at the beginning of the year and was really pleased with the way it turned out so I decided to start working on one for Allie.  At the rate I'm going, I might have it done by the time she's 18! :)

Here is what I used...

The clip art collections I used for my background and graphics are all from PCCrafter.  The collection names are as follows:

  • Debbie Mumm's Everyday Angels (cloud and side bar)
  • Debbie Mumm's Green Garden (backgrounds and border)
  • Friends Forever (butterflies and bunny)
  • PC Autumn Harvest Font set (on side bars)
  • LD Audrey font (journaling)

I used Printmaster Gold 18 to put the pages together.  I started to make my pages in Paint Shop Pro, but I quickly got frustrated with it because I haven't had time to learn to use it.  Printmaster was much easier!
