So...I finally got a picture of the final layout I did for National Scrapbook Day. Anne at Paper Patch Crafts posted this wonderful sketch and offered a great challenge to create something inspired by it...so here is my layout...
This layout makes me so mushy....my baby is not quite a baby anymore and these days seem so long ago...
So...now I'm off to clean up my scrapbook space....my room looks like a pit...everything pulled out to work on these projects as well as Teacher Appreciation Day notebooks and cards...
(I got my June Paper Popsicles kit...oooooooohhhhhhhh boy...my hands finally on some of the Pink Paislee paper...oh dear...need to clean up in there so I can make another mess!!!)
I mean look at this!! (and yes, that is an acrylic album)
Want to get your hands on some of these yummy kits to play with??
