So, I quickly pulled out a few of my scrap files and several sheets of 12x12 papers and decided to create my own Starting Points. I started by emptying my green scrap folder and sorting the pieces by size, throwing away the smallest pieces as I went. Then I created four Starting Points, each began with one full sheet of 12x12 paper and was completed with scraps from my green folder. Over the next few days, I flipped through my storage binders and found photos and stories to work with these pages and have four layouts to share with you today.
This first one went together fairly quickly after I pulled two photos of me and Robbie relaxing at home.
This next starting point looks a little bit like a hodge podge and I found it harder to work with. I ended up changing the little embellishment in the top left corner and covered up a good bit of the papers as I worked.
On the back of one of these photos from my 6th birthday party, Mama had written the names of each of my friends and family who attended. I copied the back of the photo so that I could preserve Mama's handwriting on the layout.
