Project Paper: Day 1

   The first paper pack that I choose to start with is one of my all time favorites, but I've never actually used it.  I guess I decided it was just too cute to cut.  That has all changed.  Animal Cookies is the perfect pack for zoo pictures, Valentine's Day photos, cute kid pictures, etc.  I choose to use the pack to scrapbook zoo pictures, mainly because I have at least 4 sets of zoo photos that need to be scrapbooked. 
In this layout, I used Flip Flaps to add more photos to the layout than the Reflections pattern called for.  This layout actually includes 17 photos.  In order to make it Faster, Simpler and Easier (the CTMH motto), I decided not to use stamps as embellishments and opted to only add buttons.  I did stamp the title onto Indian Corn Blue cardstock and the back of one of the papers included in the paper pack.  I added a photo in the spot originally intended for journaling.  Using the Flip Flaps and this layout allowed me to scrapbook the entire day at the zoo in just one layout, leaving me more space in my album and using alot less paper.  I have plenty of paper left over so visit again tomorrow to see what I create with my left overs.
