Happy New Year Together

I have found with every scrapbook page that I make for the "kids" that I am enjoying myself more and more! My husband thinks I am probably loosing it and maybe I am but I am getting the satisfaction of putting together memories in a scrapbook that they will be able to enjoy for years to come.
This page was a challenge and still so much fun to make. They were only able to give me one picture, and I couldn't think of anything to do with it. But I started laying it out using Stampin' Up! Cool Caribean cardstock as the background, layering the photo, words and date on Tempting Turquoise and Pink Passion cardstock. But I needed something to add alittle "bling" to the page, brads! I remembered that I had some balloon brads, don't ask me why I had some, I must have thought they were cute when I bought them, and I just happened to have a SU stamp of a balloon. And here is the page!

My thought for today:
No goal is too high if we climb with care and confidence.

Summer Time Fun Scrapbook Page

Here is another scrapbook page, I called it Summertime Fun. When I am looking out my picture window and see all of the snow, yep I wish it was summertime!! But we have been enjoying temps in the 30's and its made a very nice January thaw!
This page used Stampin' Up! Bashful Blue, Green Gable and Designer Paper; Close to Cocoa and Bashful Blue ink; a ribbon and a brad to add alittle fun to the page. The stampset was SU also, its retired now, but then most of my stamps are retired. Doesn't make them unusable and I have really gotten my use out of them.
Well, I am almost done with the kids scrapbook, only a couple more pages left. Then I am going to go back to my own scrapbook.
Until the next page, here is my thought, this came from a birthday card that I saved for some unknown reason, I received it from my mother-in-law more than 20 years ago. She is not with us anymore and I am glad that I saved it for that reason.
No wishes are more loving, no thoughts more warm and true; Than those that fill this greeting especially meant for you! Have a Wonderful Day!

Engagement Scrap Pages

Last night I finished another double page for the scrapbook that I am making for our son and his fiance. Rather than crowd the photos that I had, I made it a double page so that when you open the book you will have the "We're Engaged" on the left side and the other page on the right. I really like how that works out by doing a double page this way.
I used Stampin' Up! Bashful Blue and Apricot Appeal cardstock, some Polka Dot Designer Paper and Bashful Blue ink. I also used the SU sets Polka Dot Punches and Figures of Speech. Also notice the engagement ring on the second page and how I used a crystal brad for the diamond. Sometimes I just amaze myself!!!
As always take care, thanks for stopping. Here is my thought for today:
Love is Today; The living, loving, present. Our lives are but the day repeated.
