One Of My First Scrapbook Pages

I just realized the other day that I have absolutely none of my scrapbook pages on my blog. There really are not that many of them right now, but I thought I would start posting some.

This is one of my first scrapbook pages. It is of my daughter and her boyfriend at the time (they are now married with 1 little one). When my son first came home from Iraq, the USMC banquet was not to far off. Because the unit had just returned, the Marines invited their whole families. These are some photos we took just before we all left.

I am not sure where the border stamp came from. It was one of my first stamp purchases which I bought at the local big box craft store. When I saw the date, I realized that I have been stamping for 5 years, not 3 or 4 like I thought, lol. Time sure does go by when you are having fun {wink}

I added glitter to the letters on top and hand wrote the names. Those keys are so cute, I wonder what I did with the rest of the package, lol

There really were not a lot of different photos to choose from. So for the center, I just used one that was closer up than the other. As you can see, James is not thrilled about having his photo taken, we barely got a tiny smile out of him. He has gotten much better and shows his handsome smile all the time now. Soon I will make a page of their wedding and you will surely see it then!

I can hardly believe the few embellishments I had. When I started, I had one drawer in my dinning room, ha ha ha Now I have a whole room that is getting smaller with every purchase!

Hi Sandy,

I personally think embellishments are like bunnies, they multiply quickly! I can't get my youngest ever to smile either with pictures. Then the oldest is a complete ham nd I can't get a serious picture out of him! Can't win!

This is a cute page and sweet photos. It takes patience to combine stamping and scrapping, and you've done it beautifully. I agree, time flies when you're having fun!
