So here is from my third child's end of year preschool picnic. I forget the paper's name. But it is a CTMH Layout. From the Cherish book. I find them easy to resort to when I like to scrapbook swiftly. I think the papers really made this layout bright and I even popped some of the pictures to add some dimension too. Another CTMH Swift Layout from the Cherish book. I used my Slice Machine to cut out and do paper piecing.
I am having a very bad week, so to help; I scrapped, and scrapped I did!!! These layouts are of Christmas 2003. I was able to cut down my 5 inch stack of photos by half; who doesnt take tons of pics at Christmas.
I know you are looking at the photos thinking, "Hey I can count and that is not 20 - 2 page layouts", well, I only took one photo of each set. Set?? When I first began scrapping I decided on the events that all the children are a part of, they will get their own page; so each of the layouts above I made 5 of.
Yeah that means, 20 layouts, 40 pages, one full bottle of fabri-tac (Large), 5 packs of BASIC GREY;fruitcake paper, 320 photos used, and I did it all on two large, new tables ( Heather sorry yours is covered up, hehehehe did you expect anything different) and in two days!!! woo hoo, it was such a big under - taking, that I have been ignoring.... But needed doing. Off to go put them all in the albums.
As Heather mentioned earlier, we had a challenge to do between us. As you may have noticed mine does not look like hers; that is because this is actually our second challenge. It based on a sketch. The paper is all K& CO and Bazzill. I will do the first challenge which is a paper challenge, later. :)
Wendy Ann is a SAHM, cousin of Heather's. I have one child still at home, but 7 between my husband and I. I have been scrapbooking for years, actually began in High School, I won't tell you how long that is. :) . I love to scrapbook. I like to make layouts, mini books, paper bag albums, cards, ATCs'. I love to read, I average 35-45 books a year. I also paint watercolor. And love to cross stitch, which has been years since I have done a project.
