Christina from Creations with Christina issued a challenge earlier this month to complete and post a layout every month. Here is the link to her post. Creations with Christina: Scrapbook Challenge I SOOO needed to get back on track with my scrapbooking.
Since discovering the world of blogging, I have been distracted by all the wonderful inspiration afforded to my through the wonderful world of blogging. BUT, I have been so engrossed in reading posts and entering contests that I have neglected the one thing I love to do with my free time: SCRAPBOOK. (Can I get a witness?!) I want to take all this great inspiration and apply it to my scrapbooks and card-making! In defense, my love for cardmaking has been revived thanks to all the talent on the blogs I follow! My Christmas cards were great and I've learned to make great, simple cards using my Cricut and stamps!
Below is my layout for this month. I started this layout back in Thanksgiving of last year. I hate to admit that the pictures are from 2007! Yikes! A lot has happened in our family in the last couple of years ad hence the backlog. Hopefully with this challenge I will get back on track and soon up to date. Wish me luck!
Let me first apologize for the glare on this shot. I'm not a professional photographer and I still need to learn how to take better pictures of my creations.
Below are a few close up shots.
If it were not for my blog friends, I would not have thought of the banner, i-Rock, and using the embroidery floss (I couldn't find baker's twine so I used the floss instead. Worked out great!) Thanks bloggers!!! I think my layout turned out great! It's ready to go in the album, pictures and all! Let me know what you think! I love hearing from others!
