Proud Papa

So who do you scrap for? What pictures are you scrapping presently? How many albums do you have either full or half full or just starting? Are you new to scrapbooking or are you a seasoned scrapper? How do you organize your layouts once they are completed? I have four grandchildren and I scrap for them. I have an album for each year since they were born. I try to include pictures for each month of the year for that particular album. It doesn't always work that way, but there are always other pictures from previous months I can use. I really don't have a problem with picture shortages.

I also have quite of few other albums. I have albums for my children of course, but I also have several heritage albums. I am really into researching my family's history and I love putting a picture to the name. I feel so blessed to have parents and grandparents who loved taking photographs to preserve that particular moment in time.

I guess you can say, if its not nailed down, I'll scrap it! LOL  Today, I would like to share with you another 2 page layout I've completed recently. 

I love this picture of Dave and Kevin.  We were on our way to the east coast with our final destination being Iceland.  Kevin was only 6 weeks old when we started our PCS move.  We just happened to stop off at a store or mall (I can't remember now) and Kodak was showing off their new Polaroid camera and giving free snapshots away.

The papers I used for this layout are from CTMH My Reflection "Lucky" paper pack along with some coordinating chipboard elements.  I cut my title out on my Wishblade and the other elements you see on the layout came from my stash.

This two page layout is of my daughter Kelli.  This is the project we completed for my September workshop.  I thought I had shared this before, but I was mistaken. The smaller picture on the left page was taken at homecoming that year and the larger picture is her school picture.  The photo on the right side was just a snapshot taken.  I love that smile of Kelli's.  She would light up the room when she would enter.  She still does!

The papers are from CTMH's My Reflection "Typeset" paper pack.  I cut the bracket square with my Wishblade and most of the elements on the two pages along with the title.   

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I still have lots more to share with you, so stay tuned.

Until next time,
Happy Scrappin'
