I finally got some solid scrapbook time in this weekend. The whole Mother’s Day thing is what did it for me, if you want to know! LOL Breakfast in bed served by 3 singing children and a day where mom gets to do anything she wants and “ we won’t fight, whine or be negative, mom”.
So here are the fruits of my labor. We have many more challenges than those shown on the blog hop on Saturday. Stop by Creative Scrapbooking Divas and tell them DT Ann sent you!
1st we have a layout for the Mom and Me BOM (Book of Me) Group. This is me at 2 mos. in April, 1967, with my mom. The layout was inspired from a layout in the June/July issue of Creating Keepsakes Magazine. The patterned paper that makes up the paper quilt and all of the chipboard embellishments and the sticker boarder are from the new line from Crate Paper called Emma’s Doll Shoppe.
The next layout is from Stephanie’s Royal Wedding Themed Challenge – Something Old, New, Borrowed and Blue.
The layout on the top is my “Borrowed” and is an Anna Griffin ad in the June/July 2011 Creating Keepsakes Magazine. My “old” is the paper used in the layout on the right. It is an old Bo Bunny kit that I have had for over 2 years. My “new” is the technique that I used which was the layered banners that shows the title of Griffin. The journaling says “you are my bright and shining star.” And I think you all can see the “blue” in the layout. LOL. This is a pic of my baby boy, Griffin at age 3 1/2 in 2001. He just now turned 13 in February, 2011
This layout is from Yolie’s One Photo Challenge. The paper and embellishments are from Cosmo Cricket. The picture is from 4 1/2 years ago. This shows my children and my brother’s only children at that time. This was the only meeting that the 5 of them have ever had. And yes, there are 2 sets of twins there- my girls are fraternal twins and his boys are identical twins. You can see the title : “No Baby for Me?” is what my blondie twin was saying to the photographer. No matter how much she complained, she never got to hold a baby in the picture. This the best shot that was taken. Sweet Gretchen was unhappy in all of them and the babies really had a hard time sitting still and we never did get smiles from them.
