A Scrapbook page!

Woohoo! I finally made another scrapbook page. I really want to scrapbook more, but I'm just lazy I guess. Scrapbook pages are so much harder for me. I'm embarrassed how long this page took me, so I won't tell ya lol. I think the most time consuming part for me is trying to figure out what I want to use on it. I cased the layout from Lynn. I just found her blog the other day and love it! One of the hardest parts of a scrapbook page for me is the titles. First, I never know what to say, and then what to make the title with! I really need to stock up on chipboard alphabets or something. For this page I ended up using some cardstock stickers I had laying around. It took forever, but I put foam dots under the letters so they'd have a little dimension. I also popped up the boat and the star from Nursery Necessities. The patten paper is by Heidi Grace. I'm not sure who makes the cardstock I used, but I got it at Hobby Lobby. They have all of their paper on sale 4 for $1 right now! The ad said all paper under 59 cents 4/$1, but at our Hobby Lobby, there isn't any over 59 cents. I got about 50 sheets. Speaking of sale...did you know Ribbon and Bows Oh My has all of their grosgrain 20% off? They've got such great prices! I've got 135 yards of ribbon coming my way for only $29 including shipping!! I have no idea where I'm going to put it though. I guess it will probably just stay in a big pile for a while, lol.
This is my sweet little nephew David. One day while I was babysitting him, I threw a white sheet down a took a ton of pictures of him in a few different outfits. Isn't he adorable!! I'm going to try to make a page to go with this one with some of the other pictures I took. He was 5 months old here (he's almost 2 now). He is the best! He is always doing or saying something completely adorable. When he started talking, his first sentence was "shake that thing"...OMG, it is the funnest thing ever! He has a toy that says that, which is where he got it from.

I'll try to post tomorrow, but if not, I'll be back Friday for the Stamp Something Challenge. Have a great day!!

Emily that is a wonderful page! You really should scrap more. I find the journaling the hardest to do.

wonderful page and layout- I find it so much easier to have sketch or layout to go by. David is even cuter than the page!
