Friday morning I scrapbooked with a couple of friends, Nat and Deb. A group of us try and get together once a week, some make it some weeks and not others - me...EVERY WEEK!! I have decided that I am setting aside this time to do my own thing, not make cards for shops, but do what I want to do...I will probably so scrapbooking...
This page is of my my eldest, my only son, Jacob. You know what it is like with your first...so-o-o many photos so I am happy to make a start! Jacob actually has his own story, he is a walking miracle and one day I will share his story. I love the blues and browns together and they are great for boy pages or cards. I have loosely cased a page by my friend Hannah (aka bubblefrog) but I doubt if she would recognise it! LOL!
The DP's have been sponged and layered with a scalloped border added to the lower one. I have stamped various circles and sentiments, sponged and layered them, then added a corrugated card strip and 2 buttons with string attached between them! I t was very hard to get the colours exact, I think I left it a bit late in the day, it is close but IRL the colours are a bit richer without being too bright! The corrugated strip is for the Ways to Use it Challenge on SCS and the metal button also brings it into this weeks StampinB. Challenge: http://stampinbsdesignteam.blogspot.com/

Oh that Boy! And now nearly a man! (will he be a Lolly Man too?) Linda, I love how you are preserving your precious memories for your children, and their children to treasure. They will look back and know how very special and loved they are!

Sweet face this one! I love baby pictures, don't they take you back when...I love how you displayed the little circles. Truly a labor of love now...Jacob is the cutest embellishment on this page though. TFS Linda, I love your work you know.

What a fabulous page Linda!! You are doing SO WELL on your scrapbooking. My printer has been out for 2 1/2 weeks. Finally, just ended up getting a new one, so hopefully I can start back on my pages!! I miss doing the sketch layouts by Sally!! This is so ADORABLE of your son, Jacob!! I bet you do have tons of photos of him. You've decorated your page so well and love the sponging and metal elements!! Super job! He is a very special little boy!! TFS!
