Mommy and me!

Hello, hello and happy Friday to you!  Almost time for the weekend!!  Anyone doing anything extra fun?  I have a full weekend planned, but hope to find the time to work on a few scrapbook pages.  I am having so much fun scrapping again!  My craft room looks like a snow globe that someone shook and shook and shook, but honestly I don't care!  I have pictures strewn every where and piles and piles of paper taking over!  I have embellishments splayed out all over all of the flat surfaces!  My sewing machine is out and my Cricut is plugged in and ready to go!  Normally a mess like that would make my left eyebrow twitch, but lately it just feels like a well loved and used work space!  Yay...go me!!

Guess what...I have another scrapbook page to share with you today!  Surprised?!  LOL  Probably not, huh?  Ok, let's get to it:

Today's page is all about my gorgeous oldest grand kiddo and her gorgeous Mommy!  (One of my very sweet daughters-in-law)  Aren't these pictures just adorable?  I knew as soon as my DIL sent them to me that they would make a super fun page.  They were goofing around with some camera filters and these were the result.  I just love them!

I wanted a nice feminine Springy looking background so I dug out some flower-y papers and matching embellishments.  I started with a piece of white card stock and stamped the background with two small flower stamps.  I like to add little things like that to fill in some of the empty space.  I started by creating a border strip made up of 3 different layers.  I used a border punch on the pink and embossed the white strip with polka dots.

I decided that rather than go with a large title that I would stamp a small sentiment and layer it up!  I added a butterfly (double layered and held together by a staple!) and used fun foam to raise the whole thing up off the page.

I added some flowers and a couple of doilies.  I think doilies make every project feel softer and more delicate.

A few more flowers and another doily!

I matted the photos against a combination of white and different shades of pink and then layered the photos on top of each other.  I also drew in some lines on the bottom right for my journaling. Fun pictures, fun page! I cannot wait to get this page into my grand kiddos album!

I also wanted to share a fun tip with you!  If you want to use a piece of patterned paper that you really like as a background piece, but you would like to salvage some of it, you can cut out the center and just use the outside frame!  Here is the back of my page.  I kept that center for a whole other project. 

Here is today's page one more time:

Hope that you will be able to find some time this weekend to get your scrapbook on!  It is good for the soul!  

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I will see you again soon!  I have lots more to share with you.  Have a great day and happy scrapping!
