My beginning in Paper Crafting started with Scrapbooking. My pages didn't look like this either. In my 11 years of paper crafting - I have completed 45 Scrapbook Albums. I used to scrapbook ALL of the time - but now I have the addiction of Rubber Stamping too.
My sweet husband lets me leave the family for 4-5 days to go to Iowa every March and October/November to go scrapbooking. It is a wonderful time of fellowship, fun and laughter. I save a lot of stories and a large group of us go and laugh until our faces hurt! I have around 42 more days before I go...I will be bringing my Lap top though in case there is a Release Party with Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!!! :)
This is a double page lay out and I am sad to say the baby in those pictures is now 7 years old. I am dreadfully behind in my scrapbooking! The little boy, my son is 8 now and the older girl is now 17 yo. ***SIGH***
These are retired papers from Stampin' Up! I painted the chipboard by mixing my own MM paints to get this color - then sanded them a bit to get more of a distressed look.
Thank you for stopping by! Have a fabulous day!
