First page in ages

Well, it was slow going because I was trying to match the papers to the colors in the picture without clashing the opposing page in the book. Took me an hour to do this simple page. The colors are off in this picture, I should have used my better camera to take it. Oh, well.

Anyhow, this is for Jordan's professional picture book. One more layout and I'm caught up! (all of the other prof pictures of her for the book are still on the wall). Then I can start Natalie's. Whoo hoo!!!!! Hoping to get back into the scrappin' groove, I miss it. It's been at least 3 weeks since I've done a page.

I think it is beautiful. I love that you do a professional pic book for your kids. I am really thinking about going back and doing that for my kids. Right now all of the pics are either in frames behind newer pics or in a folder.

That is a great idea. We don't have many prof pics yet, but I am sure we will be getting more soon.

That looks great! I'm excited to have you start making pages again. We've missed your work.

I know what you mean about having trouble matching colors on pictures and on the opposing page. That happens to me all of the time, and it can get frustrating once in a while.

that's exactly where mine were before I decided to go this route a couple of years ago. Smile Andrew's book was the first done (although I might have a page or two to add to his soon).

Stephanie - totally OT, but I LOVE your new siggy picture of Andrea, too cute!

thanks girls!

I have another consignment sale project today, so I don't think I'll get to do the layout I wanted to do. Sale is this weekend, so I should be back with more regular pages next week. Wink

AWESOME, Gwen!!! I'm sure it feels good to get back into the groove.

The colors are great and really set off the photo.

Best,

I used the Cuttin' Up. It's my favorite cartridge, I think. But I love the Alphalicious too, tough call to pick a favorite.

A professional book is a great idea! My MIL is a prof. photographer, so my DD is going to have a ton of studio-taken photos ... this is great, love the colors - so soft and simple.
