Stamping, Crafting, Creating


Tuesday, May 4, 2010

CCC #26~scrapbook pages!'s been...hmmmm....let's just say a very long time since I have done any scrapbooking and I am quite rusty. I'm not very happy with my pages but...the pictures are down so this is the way it will stay!!! This was for our blog challenge and my girl Moira was up to giving us a challenge this time! I think she kind of loves me...hehehehe...she mentioned me below when she was posting this on our challenge blog!! ;)
These pictures are from 2005 when my little brother graduated from basic training. The 3 photos are from the mornings was really neat to be there and watch all the boys running and doing there they do in the movies...they really do, do that! My baby was just 10 months old there and he's now 5. The other picture is of my brother and mom after the graduation ceremony!

So... April.. I know you've been looking for a kick in gear.. this is it... the time is now... get that first page done and I'm sure you will be flying through them in no time.

Now.. on to the challenge....

I want to see a double page layout (for those of you who are card makers - make two cards)..

Please use the following sketches...

Page 1

Page 2

I don't want to limit you to anything else.... so no other requirements...

I have wanting to use an 8x10 photo on a scrapbook page.. something I have never done - however if you don't have an 8x10 - you can either mat up a 5x7 or use two 4x6s and mat them together to make a 6x8 or whatever works best for you.
