Random Scrapbook Pages

After a couple of weekends of intense scrapbooking (first the BC Crop for Kids and then CKC in Seattle) I would've hoped to have more to show but at least these pages are finished and there are several others that are close to being done.

My Nephew Callum: Colin & Lyndsey always get the best family pictures taken and this series of their new son, Callum, are certainly no exception. The pictures are so absolutely adorable I had to scrapbook them. I initially had them laid out on just plain yellow'ish cardstock but it was too boring so I ended up stamping a car image that matched the patterned paper style using Versamark ink (for a watermark look) all over.

Summer Day: The second completed page includes some great pictures from the boys' daycare. I love how their personalities just shine through. The photos were taken on a sunny summer picnic at the park.

The World is Your Canvas: Another summer shot, this time of Alex expressing creativity through sidewalk chalk. I did a bit of photoshopping to blur the background slightly to really put emphasis on Alex. The banner was created with clipart and Word. The words down the side are rub-ons. Thanks to Jacqui for suggesting I add the pale red line down the left of the page to make it look like ruled school paper.

CK Media "1 Stamp Set, 10 Techniques" layout: This layout is based on a class I took at CKC. The original was (of course) 12" x 12" so I adapted it to an 8-1/2" x 11" size as that is my preferred album size. My friend Jacqui took all the photos during a visit from my parents this past August. The shots were fabulous, especially as everyone started to loosen up and act out. I divided the title "Together" over both pages to further point out how not-together we are in the pictures. Poor Phil (my dear husband) even had to be cut out of the shots because there was too much space between him and the rest of us.


Well, that's it for now. I can hear said dear husband shouting at the kids so it is probably time for me to rejoin them. Thanks for looking!
