Finally the Scrapbook Page is Done!

 Well it took me some time, but FINALLY it's done!  I had so many photos that I wanted to use (as always) but didn't want to have to mention all the different places we visited in the journaling.  I got round that by printing the names right onto the photos before they were developedThe larger photos I mentioned their location in the journaling. 
Do you see the band of swirly things on the side of each page?  I liked the brown of them matching the chipboard letters I used, but didn't like the pink that was in that paper.  I bet you can't see pink can you? (Click on the photo for a larger view and then click again to magnify it further).  That's because I coloured over the pink with my green pencil crayon and then topped it with glossy accents.  Don't be afraid to alter the paper to match your overall design, whether it's by colouring it as I did, or perhaps by using a background stamp to change the paper. Oh by the way, the white border you see around the photo is added as I post the photos, the pages don't have white around them.

Well did anyone look at the time of this post?  Yes it really is 1:50am and I'm off to bed now.  We had a midnight crop tonight and though horribly windy and snowy, we were all warm and cozy at the store and enjoyed some lovely laughter.  Well, until we had to leave to go home that is...need to work on that process methinks!

I have some other "stuff" to post later for you to see.  Mary Kay has sent us some very innovative scrapbook pages that she's made and also I'll post the page that the folks created at the crop tonight.

Oh I just noticed that it's Constantin Brancusi's 135th birthday today.  Who is he? I had no idea but I learned that he was a crafter just like you and me.  Closer to home though, it's my daughter Sandra "C's" childhood friend Sandra "B's" birthday today too.  That's how we identified them...Sandra "C" for Carrick and Sandra "B" for her last name.  Aren't you glad that you learned about that bit of family trivia...LOL.  One of my quirks...... having a birthday/anniversary/death/event to go with a date.

See "ya" later...... night.



  1. Love your two page layout and how you wrote on the photos. Your journaling tells a wonderful story with just enough detail. WTG Lilian.

  2. Thanks Audrey...I often have too much to say (can you imagine!) to fit into my journaling space.
