SCRAPBOOK SUNDAY

Hi all!! I hope everyone is have a great weekend - I know I am, since I am in Monterey hanging out with my best friend Liz while you are reading this!! Today I am going to share with you two more pages from the album I am making - I am excited about this album, I think it is coming together quite nicely! This first page is me at Christmas time when I was really really young (as opposed to now, lol!) I rounded the edge of my pics and the card stock and added a scallop border with my Scallop Edge Punch. The half scallop circle is from my Die Cut Jumbo Scallop that I just cut in half, then pierced the scallops with my Crop-a-dile. Lots of punched flowers again, and some more bling! I also added some buttons to this one. The second page is also me holding on to one my favorite toys. This is the page that I did the journaling tag for, so I added another pocket, added some ribbon and buttons, and used my Large Tag punch for the actual journaling that is tucked inside. And yep, another Jumbo Eyelet with some yummy dark blue ric rac. I did punch some more flowers, but also stamped the flowers from my Eastern Blooms set then added small pearls to the flower centers. This is also where I used the other half of the Scalloped Circle die cut. So, there you have it - the first four pages (counting yesterday) of my album all about me as a child. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
