OK, now that I went out and bought all that "stuff" at the Scrapbook Expo, I felt like I needed to get busy and use it. I'm always totally shocked when people go out and spend good money on craft stuff and then come home and don't use it. Yes, they DON'T USE IT! Makes me crazy!
I am just not that person. If I come home with new clothes, I am guaranteed to wear them within 24 hours and if I buy craft supplies, then by heck, I'm going to USE THEM! So, over the next couple of days, I'm going to post some of the new scrapbook pages I've made with all my cute new stickers and things. I also hung up all my new pictures I bought and I love them. I found a picture that was virtually identical to the "Dream" picture I bought for $2.50 and it was marked at $31.95! Now that's what I call a bargain - whoohoo!
Yes, I know this page is too way busy. But I had all these really cute pictures of baby Matt and I just couldn't bear to leave any of them out. That's the problem with me sometimes. Each picture brings back so many memories that I just hate to leave any of them out. I probably should have broken this up into two pages, but I think it's a fun page anyway.
Now this one is my favorite layout. This was Matt's first birthday party (whoops! I wrote Blake instead. These boys look so much alike at this age!). I had some really fun Disney stickers I could use on this page and I love the red and white color scheme - very crisp.
I even manage to squeeze in some journalling on this one (gasp!). I hate my handwriting, so I'm not a big journaller, but I had to mention that he liked his cake so much that we let him have it again for breakfast! Hey, it's got eggs and milk and all kinds of good stuff in it. Also, if you can see, I taught him how to put his Little Tykes toys on all his fingers and he thought that was so funny! What a cute baby in his little Mickey jammies....
Here's another fun scrapbook page for you. With the exception of our oldest son, Ryan, none of my boys are very sports oriented, so this was a good chance to use up some of my sports stickers. I liked the way the striped paper from the Dashing assortment went nicely with Ryan's Little League uniform.
I still had a lot of empty space though, so I found all these school pictures and I noticed that I had dressed him in red in all of them, so I added them for a little extra flair on my pretty Real Red page.
Boy, when I get in the mood to scrapbook, I get on a roll. I've been spending lots of time in my craft room this week. That's good because my Tivo was filling up down there and I've had a good time watching some of my favorite shows - welcome back Ugly Betty and House!
