Finally! A project I've been dreaming of since my first days of scrapbooking. So pleased to be working on the family photo books. Up till now, I've scrapped the grandkids and have many, many albums full. However, the grands grew up, they have cell phones and not cameras and the pictures are not as plentiful a they once were, sadly. But not to fear, I have gazillions of photos of my own kids that need to be addressed and I'm so happy to be getting them into scrapbooks. :)
I decided on Simple Stories, the gorgeous Vintage Lemon Twist collection for this one (the album is Simple Stories, Snap!, in yellow) The photos do not do it justice. Might I just say, I've never ever been a fan of yellow, but something about this collection screamed at me and I fell in love before it was even released. I waited and waited (quite impatiently) for these products and can't begin to tell you how beautiful they are. Here is my cover design.
I hope you enjoyed this little peek. More to come. Thanks for stopping by the studio!

You guys! I am so happy to have actually put together an entire album of the kids' Halloween pictures. I gathered all I had in the closet and, while it wasn't nearly as many as I thought there would be (or hoped for) I have combined them into one album to enjoy anytime I want to. Yay!
When the kids were little, I tried to make as many of their costumes as I could. We spent lots of time in thrift stores - an absolute treasure trove for costume finds!!!- and I did a lot of sewing over the years too. I am proud to say, I passed on the tradition of thrifting and sewing to my own kids whose work you will see in these pictures as well. So glad they picked up some of my crafty.
I used the Simple Stories, Snap! binder in 6x8 with the Spooky Nights collection for this book. Here are just a few of my fave pages.
Devil, Ninja, Grim Reaper, and Fairy. Costumes and makeup by Sally.
Have a crafty week, friends!
