Recent Layouts

Our last all day crop was held at the Dover alliance church last Saturday.  I had a wonderful day despite being up till 2 am the night before due to car trouble and having to pack.  Since I was helping out with the crop I only managed to get 3 more pages done for Robbie's scrapbook.  I need to hurry up and get it done as his May Graduation is approaching faster than I would care to admit.

In order to quickly get some layouts done I decided to work on getting his sports photo's scrapped. (quick easy layouts little to no journalling)  Here is what I managed to get done.

8th grade Wrestling
 My favorite of the day. I have a hard time finding Wrestling paper so I took the In The Game - Wrestling Stampset from CTMH and random stamped the Images onto Cranberry Cardstock using tone on tone Cranberry ink for images & Star & Black for words.  The titles are cut from the composite picture and used as my title.  Materials Used: Cranberry, Black and White Daisy CS, Cranberry & Black inks, Tiny Typewritter Alpha , The Works Alpha, In the Game - Wrestling Stamp Sets.  Wrestling B&T & Stickers were from my Non-CTMH Stash. Stipple Brush to give white mats a speckled look.

7th Grade Football
Materials Used - White Daisy Cardstock, Red CS from The Paper co, Football B&T from my non-CTMH stash.  School ribbon from LSS, Stamp Set Used Touchdown.  Inks Holiday Red & Black  This was based on a Layout from the Reflections Scrapbook Program.

Freshman Baseball
  This Layout I did as I played along with our Progressive Page Challenge, I couldn't participate in the contest but I wanted to prove that it wasn't hard to do.  Steps were 1) choose cardstock, 2) choose B&T, 3)Mat Pictures (but don't attach) 4)  Add Stamped image to your Cardstock or B&T 5) add Title, 6) Add Punched item  7) Distress Something on Page   8) Attach Pictures  9) Add Journalling (who, what, where, why, when)   10)  Add finishing touches and complete

Hard to believe that 18 years ago today I held a tiny little 20.5 in,  8lb 9 oz boy in my arms at Riverside Hospital, in Columbus OH. Now he is a 215lb 5'11" tall young man in his Senior year of High school.  Amazing how time flies.  He may be considered an adult by others but to me he will always be my Baby Boy.  Now to get his album done before he graduates, or gets married.  He gave his girlfriend Dani an engagement  ring on Oct 30, 2010 their 1 year aniversary of dating.  He couldn't have picked a better girl, Welcome to the family Dani.  Will post pictures of both of them later.

This is one of my favorite Pictures I recently took of Robbie.
It will be one of his Senior Pictures.
