Another Scrapbooking Project

I think I am a glutton for punishment because I have been working on yet another massive project for a gift. Last time it was all of my mother's pictures, this time it is all of the childhood pictures of my husband. Since I am coming to the close of my efforts, I thought I would share a few layouts. so far it is 2 albums thick and is a mixture of pocket pages and full 12x12 layouts. Sorry for the glare - I didn't take the pictures until I had already put them into the page protectors.

I didn't use any specific collection - I typically just pull things together from my stash that look like they will coordinate and go from there.

Christmas Friends

Hello all, I thought I would pop in this evening to share a layout that I made recently. Every year, many of our friends have begun sending us photo cards for Christmas. Since I don't want to just throw them out, I cut the photos out and use them on layouts. I have an entire binder dedicated just to layouts of friends.

I used Shimelle's original collection, as well as MME decorative tape and some red sparkly Thickers. The heart punch is a small punch that my cousin gave me (I think that it came from the Michaels dollar aisle).

Happy Valentine's Day!

Tis that time of year again... Once again, I participated in Winter Sims' Caring Hearts Card Drive that sends Valentines to sick kids at St. Jude's Hospital. Thanks to my dear cousin, I was able to rotate some new images into my valentine card selection.  I used the "Purrfect Pair" stamp set from mama, the "Sail Away Sayings" stamp set from the Sweet Stamp Shop, the "Love From Above" stamp set from, and a few other sets, as well as a few ephemera packs from Pebbles. The papers came from a number of paper pads, i including "Yours Truly" by Pebbles, and several scraps from various collections...
