This site is where I share my everyday adventures, Bible Journaling pages, scrapbook layouts, handmade cards, and other crafty projects, as well as information on my upcoming workshops and events.

Sweet Memories

I'm working my way through the final photos in my 2009 Storage Binder and found these cute photos of my nieces. I used the Let's Get Sketchy May Week 3 Sketch as my starting inspiration for this layout.

The background paper for this layout already contained printed items in the top left and bottom right corners, so it went together easily! (Special thanks to my friend Michelle for the really cute paper pad she brought me on National Scrapbook Day!) I added several strips of washi tape and the dimensional flower buttons, mounted my photos on cardstock, and added journaling. (Special thanks to Robbie for the flowered washi tape and flower buttons that he bought me while he was out running errands on National Scrapbook Day!) A quick fun layout to showcase photos of those sweet girls!

(BTW - Jennie is ready to pass Creative Stamping for Scrapbookers as part of Pass the Book: Year Two. Click here for a chance to be the next recipient.)
