Almost finished- (6 LO's)

I have about 5 more pages to complete for the 2008 scrapbook and THEN I can give it to Randall. I had planned on finishing it up tonight while he was at work, but we ran into some problems in the kitchen, so tonight won't be a scrapping night. I might even go somewhere for the night...who knows.

Anyways, these are the 6 I scrapped the other day. I was pleased with how most came out.

This is the one I am not fond of. Just don't care for it.
Journaling says: "Ruthie did really good at her first haircut. Mrs. Debbie did a wonderful job!"

This one I do like. I feel like it needs more, but I am okay with it.
Journaling says: "Ruthie loved to sit and "read" her Bible, even though a lot of times it was upside down. It always made us feel good to watch her grow in the Lord at such a young age."

This one didn't turn out like I had planned, but I think it turned out better! I love this one! The stamp says: "You are inscribed in the palm of His hand." Isaiah 49:16

This one was fun to make. This is only the 2nd page I have ever made with one 4x6 photo. It's hard, but it's one of my favs!
Journaling says: "Randall and I were so ready to make Ruthie a big sister! We prayed hard and God delivered! What an amazing God we have! Ruthie told us the baby was in her belly! She was really excited!" And the stamp says," Ask and it will be given to you; Seek and you will find, Knock and the door will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7"

This one is probably one of my favorites out of the whole book. Letter were cut from Opposites Attract. Arrow from Home Decor.
Journaling says: "2008 Summer-time at Grandmama & Pappy's pool creates so many memories. Ruthie began swimming with her Speedo jacket and shd finally felt comfortable. The steps were still a favorite spot for her. She loved going for a dip!"


This one wasn't how it was supposed to look, but it's fine. I really wasn't happy with my choice of papers. Oh well. "Memories" cut from Home Decor along with the arrow, and the "SDC" is cut from Opposites Attract. I need both of those!
Journaling says: "Silver Dollar City was a blast this year! It was a long awaited trip! Ruthie saw pics of the rides and talked about the constantly! We almost got rained out, but we waited it out and had a ball! We can't wait until next year!"

Thanks for looking!

I LOVE the third one! Definitely my favorite!

The first one is perfectly girly for a first hair cut LO. Smile And I love all the memories you chose to scrap! You do a great job of journaling your feelings and memories (even if it's only in a few words).

And way to go getting so many done! Good luck finishing those last few!

Just a suggestion...
On the BFP page, I'd take a pen and finish out the words in small letters.
So BFP would still dominate the page, but when your grandchildren are looking at the page (and the vernacular has changed), they'll know what BFP meant.

Does that make sense? Leave everything as is, but pen in "ig" next to B, "at" next to F and "ositive" next to P.

Otherwise, you did a wonderful job. I LOVE that papers on the Bible page and how you worked them together.

On the first picture, was the crooked bracket in the lower left on purpose?

Yes, it does make sense. I was going to try something like that, but I never did get it right. I will try again. Thanks! I know DH won't even understand it, but I do. Lol

The crooked bracket was on purpose, the other two are supposed to be a bit crooked too. They really don't look like it in the pic. Maybe when I took it out of the plastic it got moved. :shrug:

No, it looked like it could be done like that on purpose, but I wasn't sure because the top two looked more uniform. It works crooked.

Wow Sadie! Your work is amazing girl!! LOVE that first page, can't believe you don't. Do you add that ribbon to the button? Neat idea!

Love the one with the bible verse..so beautiful. And I especially love the BFP page.

I am sure DH will totally cherish your work. So you don't show him any pages all year and then give it to him as a gift? How cool! But means you have to be on top of the whole year huh? Do you print your own pics then? I'm intrigued by this, sorry for all the questions. LOL

I LOVE the Bible one. The paper on that is so beautiful. Could be used in LO's from young to old alike. So classic and pretty!

They are all great. Smile

Yes, I added the twin to it. It's something I picked up from Wal-Mart in the bead section, and I love it! I use it all the time!

No, I don't show him any work. I try to make it a year-in-review type thing. Last year was my first year to do it. I feel bad b/c this year is late, but this year, I have a job and I am preggo, so I guess I have an excuse! Lol

No, I don't print my own pics. I usually save them all to the computer and print about 20 at a time. I have made so many trips to Wal-Mart in the past few days though. I am sick of it! My printer at home (that isn't hooked up) doesn't print good pics, and I think it's cheaper to do it elsewhere.

You are JUST fine asking questions! I don't mind.

Thanks for all the comments ladies.

Wow, your dh is going to love this book! I think my favorite is the one with your dd on the gravel road with the hint of sunshine behind her, I would love to work with that photo! lol. I love everything about that page, love the patterned paper (I'm a daisy fan) and the colors - it all fits together perfectly!

All of them are amazing though, I agree with Michelle about the BFP (the lingo won't be the same probably even when your kids are older and looking at the book).

I like them all, but I think 3 and 6 are my faves. I love the color scheme and layout of #3. #6 - I like the cluster of the 4 squares at the bottom. Lots of ideas here...I am so bad about branching out and trying new arrangements of pics. Thanks for the inspiration!

How do you round the corners of your pics? Do you have one of those punches that you slide the corner into? I think I need one of those Wink

YES! I have the corner rounder thing. I love it. One of the best investments I made in scrapping. I am so bad about never cutting anything but squares, and at least these look a bit different! Wink Go get you one!

oh, more Sadie pages!!!! I love seeing your pages and watching Ruthie grow. My favorite is the "inscribed" page, it's beautiful! But they're all wonderful, in different ways. Smile
