Good afternoon, ya'll! It is THURSDAY! Yes! The week is passing by fast! Always loving the weekends cause there is NO SCHOOL! No school for my babies- which means MORE PLAYTIME for us all! Love it when they're home with me! <3
I have always been a picture taking kind of gal, but a massive procrastinator when it comes to actually printing them out, placing them in albums, or scrapbooking them for my albums. So- I've been trying to catch up, but that process is never easy, because I can't seem to STOP taking pictures and would NEVER stop taking pictures. lol. Anyone having this problem? So... starting at almost the very beginning (where my kids were born) seem to be a better less overwhelming start to getting photos in albums. That explains why I have been scrapbooking nothing but baby photos even though my kids are much bigger now. :( Plus- I just miss them being tiny. :*(
For this layout, I'm pretty much using all things from American Crafts- Shimelle "True Stories" collection. I started out with a mixture of trimmed patterned papers layered on top of white card stock. I did a little bit of stitching. Added some dimension to my background by using a stencil from the same collection and modeling paste. I added my photo and a few bits and pieces of embellishments also from the same collection. I finished up my layout with a few wood veneers and gems.
I absolutely love the outcome and the picture is one of my favorite of my youngest. :) Those suckable lips.. hehehe.
