Oh my word! It's been quite a while, hasn't it? So much has been happening the past couple months that I guess blogging took a back seat for a bit. Not to worry, though. I have been staying busy scrapping on and off during my bloggy time out. I attended my very first crop with some friends I met in a scrappy group online. We met in St. Louis and cropped at Archiver's on National Scrapbooking Day. It was SO. MUCH. FUN! I thought I would be intimidated cropping with such talented ladies, but it was so relaxing and natural. I need to do that again!
I've also been working on some pages to help my Aunt make a scrapbook for my cousin, who is graduating from high school this week. She called me about two months ago saying that she was going to put together a scrapbook for my cousin...using pictures from the day he was born through today!! Nothing like leaving a project until the last minute, right? :) I offered to help and almost reconsidered when the stack of pictures showed up in my mail box. No lie...it was bigger than the stack of pictures I have to scrap of my own girls. But I have scrapped them all and I hope my Aunt and cousin like them.
Here are a couple of the last ones that I did:
For the first layout, I used Authentique's Celebrate collection. I made the banner and the pennants using papers from the Celebrate 6x6 paper pad.
scrapbooksteals.com!) I love that I was able to do a 12x12 layout with 6x6 papers. The seams are hidden under the big banner and behind the picture. This layout is a little plain in my eyes, but it's for an almost 18 year-old boy, so there was no need to go crazy with it. I love how both layouts turned out.
Well, that is all for now! Tomorrow is my biggie's last day of preschool and I have to make a couple cards for her teachers. I'll be back soon to show you more things I made during my time away.
Until next time...
