SCRAPBOOK SATURDAY

Hi all! Well, another week has flown by and I am loving having my son home but the time is going by too quickly for me! We leave on Monday for our houseboat vacation and I am really looking forward to that! But, because I love you all, I have posts for everyday while I am gone - I wouldn't want you to forget about me *wink*. So, this post is REALLY late today because our phone line was damaged early Friday morning and is still not repaired which means we have no internet connection either since it goes through the phone line! Since I had to come down and pay my bills online before we leave, I figured I might as well post too - LOL! So, I am sitting in our internet cafe coffee shop! Today is another Scrapbook page I made using the fabulous paper line from Black Market Society! I love it and have used every scrap of what I had!!! These are pics of our children Christmas 2006 that I am just getting around to scrappin' - I don't really scrap things in order, I scrap about what hits me that day - my kids baby books are still not done, but Zach's entire senior year is - teehee!! But, I digress.....I did use some of my SU! rub-ons on this page, I just love the way they look on a layout! I also took my Taken With Teal reinker and added it to some white paint which I then painted on to the chipboard hearts from the Onboard Hearts and Stars chipboard pack and the chipboard doodles and I am really pleased with how it came out! I did some stitching in Close to Cocoa around all the photos as well...I can't help myself! The flowers are new from Prima and I am in love with them - if you click on the page for a close-up, you can see how they are different colors. I added some buttons to their centers to give the page some dimension. I also used my build-a-brad as a center to one of the rub-on flowers and added some Taken with Teal brads to the other ones. I also used some Teal rhinestones on all the rub-ons to give a little bling to my page! The ribbon is some fringe from my stash and has been a favorite for some time...but now, it is all gone *sniff*. All in all, I am very happy with this layout! So, if you are joining me in Scrapbook Saturday, please let me know so I can check out your page!!! I would love to see them! Have a fabulous weekend - until tomorrow! Toodles!
