Doing Some Scrapping!

My first love, and always will be, is scrapbooking! I think I have gotten a little too much away from it this past year, because I loved the instant gratification that cards gave me! If you know me, you know that a card for me can take 4 hours, so just imagine how long a scrap page takes! So I am trying to scrap my gazillions of pictures I have. I have given up the idea that I will ever be "caught up!" It just ain't gonna happen! So here is a page I did about my nephew. You may remember me posting this picture right after Christmas. This is what I ended up doing with it. The paper is Flair, Daisy D's, and Bazzill. I used vintage lace, Life's Journey alphabet stickers, Doodlebug border flowers, and my newest love, THE STAR Punch! I punched some vintage music paper, added some old buttons with floss. The title was cut using my new cartridge for the Cricut, ABC's.

That's all for now......I am so tired! The kids swam after school. (Yes we are STILL in school!) Then Cortney had yoga for disabled persons, had a snack on the deck by the pool, read books, took baths, and now off to bed I go!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Love the page! Thanks for visiting my VERY new blog! We have a lot in common. I also have a "support" scrapping group and all of us have children with special needs. And I'm a scrapper at heart that likes to make cards too. So nice to meet you. : )

Your page totally ROCKS Michele - I just love it! You are such a talented scrapper, it is easy to see how much you love it! I love to scrapbook too, and need to scrapbook millions of pics because once I found cardmaking it seemed to take over for awhile. Now, I am balancing the two a little better! Fabulous page, my friend - and I did one for my post tomorrow, LOL! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex
