So the entire reason I started collecting scrapbooking stuff was so I could well... scrapbook. Guess what I NEVER do? It's ridiculous really. This weekend, I finally got one done! Only 6 billion to go! Wahoo!
So I made this double page layout for my son. This was his first day at a new school that has been a major turning point for us. So it was definitely worth scraping. The nautical nods to page 2 go with the theme the teacher picked for her intro and I included the message from the bottle he received that day from his new teacher. The circles on the side of the pictures have hidden journaling cards.
Here are some close ups:
The paper packs are from Close to my Heart. Most is from the Scholastic paper pack that will still be available. Some is from an older retired pack. The embellishments on page 1: The schoolhouse, flourishes and apple are from SVGCuts.com. The Title I made on my Silhouette using Design Studio. Page 2: The frames and titles I did in Silhouette design studio. The compass is from the silhouette store.
I feel like I am a little rusty on this scrapbook thing. But I printed about 400 pictures form 2012 that are GOING to get done. Hopefully. It was a good plan, lets see how long it takes!
