A Couple of Scrapbook Pages

I'm just going to share of couple of the simple scrapbook pages I made on Saturday. 
I picked up an 8 X 12" book and am regretting it. I purchased it because I didn't think I'd have much to put in it and I figured mom would like the colorful peace symbols on the front. 
It is one of the simplest books I have done. 
I had very few scrap booking supplies with me last weekend. The pretty fabric roses (that can be colored with inks)  and the butterfly are courtesy of my good friend who dumped her whole table top into a box and brought it along to sort.

My daughter and mom, Amy was in college at the time. She's the first grandchild and only girl.
The photos aren't matted and I even did some journaling by hand, I NEVER do that.

 Photos of some Christmas's past. 
We always made sure to be together at Christmas. On Mom's last Christmas she couldn't get out so we brought the party to her. That reminds me that I need to add some of those photos to my Christmas pages. 

The Christmas tree was cut with my Silhouette, the colored ornaments are scraps from Carolee, and the stocking is a Stampin' Up punch. It's blue because I wanted to blend in with something blue on the facing page. 
The Stampin' Up demonstrator who organizes this had all of her inventory, and them some, along. It's nice because if you forget something she'll have it to use or paper to sell. 
She keeps her supplies in the basement and told us she made 31 trips up the steps with bins and 31 down to get another bin. Brenda is a hard worker, the bins were heavy!!!

Hubby left about 4:30 this morning for a long  work trip to Nigeria, the return trip is not scheduled until the end of February. I got up to see him off and I'm still up! I have a full schedule this week so it will go fast!

Ta Ta for now..............I'll be back later!


  1. The important thing is to get those pictures in a book! Your mom would approve!

  2. Those pages are wonderful, Linda. You did a great job on them. I have never really scrap-booked...although I think I have done every other craft imaginable. How wonderful to have memories of your Mom and Christmas with her. xo Diana
