The Start of Nana & PawPaw's Memories Album

I've gone through all the work of scanning old pictures and ordering reprints ~ now I get to do the "fun" stuff ~ scrapping them!
For Nana's birthday I gave her the album with a couple of lay-outs in it. I'm going to keep adding lay-outs to the album as I complete them.
The first page says, "ALl because two people fell in Love"
Fancy Pants paper with MM rub-ons
Sorry about the dark pictures ~ it was a gloomy day and the flash kept making glares on the pictures. This is Nana.
Bazzill cardstock with pink scrapper's floss (Karen Foster) and white doodles from the Chatterbox doodling genie.
PawPaw with Larry, Ginny and Doug ~ around Christmas 1964-65.
Basic Gray patterned paper with Bazzill cardstock, MM Christmas glitter rub-ons, doodles from the Chatterbox doodling genie.
Two page lay-out of Griffin playing at Nana and PawPaw's house with their toys.
Bazzill cardstock, drawing a blank on the patterned paper, misc. mini brads, doodles from the Chatterbox doodling genie

I have been scrapping!

I made an 8x8 album for my mother-in-law. I finished it on August 16th, which is the day her father and our beloved PawPaw received his crown in heaven.
It was a father-daughter album. I have not taken any pictures of it, but will take some in the future.
I am getting ready to start on 12x12 lay-outs for the calendars I make for family members (for Christmas presents) and also a "Memories" album for Nana that will have pictures of her and PawPaw and all the family members.

Baby Girl!

One of my friends had a baby girl recently, so I put together a couple scrapbook lay-outs for her. I have to admit, it is so *much* easier for me to scrapbook WITH pictures....it is quite a challenge to scrapbook without them!
All of the lay-outs except for one have the patterned papers from Basic Grey Sultry line (lots of pinks, browns and lime green), and all the cardstock is Bazzill cardstock.
If you click on the pictures it should bring each one up in a larger screen ~ I think! :o)

I took the pictures outside to get the "true" colors of the paper. This lay-out is for a 5x7 picture. I don't think you can see it, but on all the little dots I put crystal stickles, so they are sparkly!
This lay-out is for a 4x6 picture. And the one lay-out that does not have the BG patterned papers.
This lay-out is for 2 4x6 pictures ~ one above and below the "baby girl" bling. And then she can journal on the right side. The flowers are Prima flowers and the baby girl bling is by MAMBI

This lay-out is for 2 4x6 pictures. The flower is a Prima flower and the brad is an XL brad by Heidi Swapp. The stamp is a Fancy Pants stamp (it says Love).

This is the last lay-out I made for her. The scalloped paper is Bazzill (and it is brown). This lay-out is for 2 4x6 or 1 5x7 picture. The solid pink with the sweet stamp is the journal box.

The boys and I have been on vacation since the beginning of July ~ it has been WONDERFUL! I have actually had time to sit down and scrap some (yes, I packed my scrapbooking stuff :o) and I am happy I did too!) ~ once I get home, I'll upload pictures of the lay-outs that I have completed.
