Scrapbooking, Bridging Ceremony


Happy Monday!  Here is my layout for the Memory Nest.  I must say, that I thought I would get a lot more scrapbooking done this summer, but it seems to be difficult to find the time.  I guess the nice weather has been calling me outside too much.  My daughter recently bridged from being a Daisy to a Brownie in Girl Scouts.  It was really cute, but the lighting was horrible.  I tried to make the best of the poor photo quality.  I spent a ton of time on the background of this layout, and you can't see most of it.  I first used my markers to make this circle of dots.  Then I painted more bigger circles.  Finally I used this glaze stuff to make four different textured regions.  You can see the triangles in the upper right best.  I was going to watercolor so the textures pop out more, but decided that it might make the page too busy.  I already have a lot going on and it is a bit tricky to read the title.

Scrapbooking, Unbearbaly Cute


Here is my Memory Nest layout for this week.  My layout is a cute one of my little guy.  I love the outfits with little ears.  They are my weakness.  I recently got a button maker for my daughter's birthday and I made that little panda button using it.  It took a couple of attempts, but I'm starting to get the hang of it.  I see lots and lots of buttons in my future.   Buttons are one of my favorite embellishments for scrapbooking.
