How fun is this? These pictures go way back to the fall of 2010 (a period where I was not scrapping much). I love that B just randomly wore his Spiderman costume to his grandparents (and that we let him). He knew his cousin would love it and had a great day. Believe it or not six pictures on one page! (Supply Notes: Amy Tangerine AC paper, SC hearts, AC thickers, and random tags, washi, and glassine bags, easy!)
Of late, I've been trying to curb my scrapbook purchases to mostly just my monthly kit. However, I had to buy E a baby album and to reach the $50 free shipping bought a few more things on the promise to myself that I would use them immediately. Here is the first of those pages with a few very new things and a few much older ones. It is part of a series I have to include pages of our kids with each Grandparent, Aunt, Uncle, Sibling, and Parent (maybe cousins too?). This is with Granddaddy on her 1st birthday. (Supply Note: BG Soleil Paper, Dear Lizzy Card, tag, and vellum, SC butterflie and AC Glitter tape)
As noted, I'm trying to get Brent and I in the albums too. The above is a picture I took on the road as we drove to STL. I rather liked it (after some editing, I admit). This is a little bit about this day and a little bit about me. (Supply Note: SC Neverland Kit, Tim Holtz tickets, SC hearts, AC Thickers, Pebbles "today" sticker from earlier SC kit, and various Mr. Huey mists and MME scraps).
Last week, I promised a page about Brent and here it is! This picture is also from my phone on my road trip. He'd been driving more than six hours at this point. The journaling is about how he does all the driving on our road trips -- both of our preference. (Supply Note - mostly SC Neverland kit mask, cardstock & mist, Dear Lizzy & Elle's Studio tags, Freckled Fawn heart, assorted washi).
This page features a photo by Heather Warren & is B's 4.5 year old page. (Remember, I scrap 8x10s of each kid for each six month interval--- which happens to line up with our family photo shoots. I do not stress about when I get around to it. I just print the 8x10s and do them as inspiration strikes.) I love the joy and enthusiasm in this picture. I love that he has relaxed with Heather over time resulting in great pictures, particularly here where she was playing with him on the playground. (Supply Note - Misc SC Kit left overs, SC wood veneer, Maggie Holmes Gold Thickers, MME paper, lots of washi).
Still with me? It is time for the give away! I love washi tape and many of the pages above include it. A month or two ago I won a huge package of washi tape from Stephanie Howell and promised her I'd take a few out, add a few of my own, and pass the rest on to one lucky person. Do you want to be that person? What would you do with a bunch of fun washi tape? Beyond scrapbooking we use them to tape things up all over our house, seal Easter Eggs, Decorate Egg cartons, do craft projects, tape signs or art to doors and walls (it comes off easily), seal letters, and really anything else in need of taping. Leave a comment below and I will draw a winner next Sunday in time for my Scrappy Sunday post.
