New Printer

I have been wanting a new printer for some time and ordered one back in December.  I kept putting off hooking it up for fear of doing something wrong.  Well, last week I decided to go for it and have now scrapped the my first photos printed with my Epson it!  I realize that it is more expensive to print at home, but, for me, it is worth it!  To be able to print photos of any size, and, at any time I feel like printing is totally worth the extra price.

The photos on the layout were taken in September 2010 at the Topeka Zoo and scrapped for a July Color Challenge to use teal, tan & white.  Most of the paper on this layout is from MME's Stella Rose Collection with other scraps that I had leftover from other projects.  The adorable elephants and buttons were from a RAK that I won from a friend, Susan...they were the perfect element for this layout. 

This was Ava's first trip to the zoo.  I'm sure the adults were more excited that it was her first zoo trip than she was......guess she just didn't realize it was such a big event. 

Ava is now 3 1/2 years old and one of her favorite things to do is visit the zoo.  She loves the animals and would go to the zoo daily if mommy would oblige her wishes.   

Wishing everyone a great weekend.  Thanks for looking.  


  1. Awesome layout Carolyn!! Love the mix of the different sized photos!! Enjoy your new printer!!

  2. Very cool page! I like how the flower and the word zoo match!

  3. I just love the bright photos against your kraft paper- awesome job :)!


  4. I love this beautiful two pager. You really showcasec your photos to perfection. I have always printed my photos at home...and when my printer runs out of ink I cannot for the life of me get my head around scrapping without it.

    1. Lynette, I debated for a long time about buying a new printer, just didn't make sense to spend that much that I have it, can't imagine scrapping without one! I truly have scrapped more in the last week than I have more months! Wishing you a blessed day!
