Yes, I Am Nuts...

I truly believe I have lost my mind. I have been scrapping for nine years, basically since my son's birth. Of course, like most people, my first pages are not wonderful. However, many are pretty good. However, I digress, I have never scrapped in chronological order. I have taken much flack for this, but it just didn't suit me.

Well, this is where I have lost my mind...

My son is now 9, and I have decided to go back and scrap his life in chronological order in my new album. Yes, I am certifiable.

I have started his school age albums (two of them) in chronological order, so I decided I must be consistent and do his baby days album the same. I realized I am not scrapping for just me, but to preserve memories of his life for him to have forever. So, it wasn't fair for me to just scrap what I like.

This is the first page of his baby album. I have very few pregnant pictures, and needed to get these safely in an album.

The paper is from the DCWV black and white stack and my friend Shelly's stash. The title is cut using Cursive 101 and welded in DS on Shelly's Expression. (I was at her house). The blue paper is Bazzill textured and die cut cardstock. The center strip is punched with Threading Water and the journaling is printed on vellum. The two quotes are from vellum quote stacks. I really like this page and am glad it starts out his album.

Enjoy Everything,
