The plan was to mat on a second bright color but when I payed them on the background page I decided the light color enhanced it more than the bright ones so I left the photos with a single mat.
Count down and planning calendars add a great touch to Annual Auntie Week and make for great scrapbook table of contents when finished.
Colored pencil and watercolor create the backdrop for these pages. My niece drew the mermaid from the side of our ship. I tried to match the backdrop for theses pages.
I started working on My princess's scrapbook. Her theme this year is her favorite novel: Magic Bone. Sparky the dog has a magic bone that transports him to all sorts of adventures. To match this Auntie took her Princess on a magical Caribbean cruise. Each morning we woke to Sparky chomping on a new bone and we explored the new place.

I love the look of the circus tent with the ribbon weaved through to give it depth.
I love putting the books together almost as much as the wonderful week with each niece.
