I managed to almost complete 3 pages in my Smash Album. I snapped some photos of them while they were on my desk.
The first page is of my two boys, hamming it up for the camera in their Grad tux's. Such handsome boys :)
I used Smash tape ~ it comes coloured in funky blocks like that. And a couple of Smash tabs to hold my photo in place. The brad is Crate Paper and the chipboard button is My Little Yellow Bicycle.
I also stamped the date using my new Smash stamper. It has a bunch of cute sayings on the same rotating date stamper. Really neat and reasonably priced. They are tucked in with the Smash display. Check them out. I know I'm going to be using my stamper on many layouts.
This next page is my family with my parents. It's been over 7 years since we've all been in the same place at the same time so it was wonderful of my friend Lilia to bring over her camera and get us all to pose for this photo. Thanks, Lilia!
I used Prima leaves and flowers, Smash polka dot tap & journal tab, green MM paint and Prima sticker letters.
This last page is a picture of me that isn't too, too bad. I hate photos of me and most of them end with a tap of the delete key. I see a 25 year old me when I look in the mirror, why do I see such an old me in photos?
I punched a butterly shape out of some cardstock and used it as a stencil with the MM green paint. Then I outlined it with my black pen and put a gold jewel on the body.
The paper is out of Ang's scrap bag. Thanks, Ang!
I used some more Smash tape and some Smash journal pages ~ still have to do the actual journaling.
The brads are Crate Paper. Clock is Prima.
I hope you'll join us for the next Smash and Mash.
These albums are really a fun way to scrap.
