A break from cards....

So i took a break from card making to try my hand at something I've always admired.... Scrapbooking !! It was a lot harder than I thought...and Im definitely not really thinking out of the although sophmoric, I'll post and hopefully see some progression...
First is a two page layout, of trying to get a good photo with the kids. Papers and embellies are Crate and October afternoon, canvas button is CTMH. I used my airbrush to colour the thickers...they look...umm...oh well!


some fun colours and papers, and I micked some of the flowers in the paper. Middle flower is some retired SU ribbon, and the top and bottom flowers are PTI beautiful blooms dies with the rounded part cut off


Second page is the amount of photos it took to get a decent shot !! No embelishment here as the photos make it quite busy...


last a single page spread of my son...and the damage a bowl of cherries can do. The two colour scheme is a bit..plain...but this was my very first attempt and I already see some growth from this to my double page happy with that !! Papers are Bazzil and Cosmo cricket.


Thanks for staying it out on this longer than usual post. And letting me show off my kiddos a bit too!!
