So VERY Scrabable!!

Of course we're going to scrap our precious grandsons. They are my most useful subjects, second only to OUR sons! Then there are special events, my hubby, and friends/relatives. and THEN, there are the photos that just BEG to be scrapped. The oh so darling & delightful Abigail, premie daughter of a young friend of ours... who is a camera HAM -- she absolutely LOVES to have her picture taken!! and really hams it up in front of the camera. Both her and our grandsons are featured in these four layouts.

Family Heritage

We had a wonderful vacation in March visiting family. You'll be seeing alot of layouts with our grandsons! Meanwhile, here are a couple using Red Ivy Design's kits. My mom was excited about finding an OLD family photo online of the Mincemoyer Clan (my gramma around 3yo & Great Gram & beyond!). She also had a framed oldie of my Great Gram and all her kids (my Gramma before she married & my great aunts & uncles). This inspired my 1st real "vintage" scrapbook layout.

And then, our morning out at Big Red to watch the sunrise. Still a bit nippy, but spring is in the air!! Thought it was kinda cool how we ended up matching the lighthouse. I've had tons of fun using the panorama (auto-stitching!!) feature in my new Sony Cybershot HX5V & really liked the results of the harbor. Got a great one of the sunrise (not shown here).

Tres Amigos

Used a DARLING kit by Amy at 3 L'il Monsters for this layout (OKC). And of course, her scrapping name immediately prompted memories of MY little monsters (3 of them!) and I was off on a picture hunt. Then, I had the great idea of making MY memories "their" memories. I remembered downloading some bubble art for comics-text... couldn't find it... so did an internet search and learned that PSE has these in their shapes library! Yipee!! So I had fun tweaking them to fit the photos and taking chunks of backgrounds from the pics for the smaller bubbles. This was a FUN layout of our 3 sons who are 3 brothers and friends for life!
