There are some of my sons' pages that I did for them when I first started scrapping that "scream" at me to be reworked. Most of them are in Jon's album, his were the first pages I scrapped. Since I started scrapping in 2004, I have acquired A LOT of tools and toys that have made my scrapping "better". This Page of Ben's was one that I have wanted to rework. These pictures are some of my favorite of Ben and I knew they deserved a better page. I participated in an online crop this last weekend, It was hosted by Cheeky Chics to benefit The Tornado Victims of Oklahoma. One of the challenges was to have a sun in it and have yellow. I knew that was "my call" to rework Ben's page. I LOVE LOVE how it came out. The paper and embellishments are all Adornit . I used a layout from the July/August issue of Creating Keepsakes as a guide. The sun "rays" were not as easy to cut out as I thought they would be. I think I'm going to recreate this for some pictures of my Great-Niece. When I do that one I'm going to stack all 6 colors of papers and cut them at the same time with a rotary cutter. LOL so I will have enough rays for 6 layouts.
I have been scrap booking since 2004. I got started when my mother gave me a scrap book and supplies as a gift. My talents have increased tenfold with the new love of my life my cricut. I love my bug and all that we do together. With the inspiration of the Cricut MB I have now gotten into altering crafts and card making. I am a proud mother of 3 wonderful sons. The oldest is a newly wed and works out at a local Boy Scout Camp. The middle one is a recent graduate from UF, GO GATORS, and just got his first "real job" at Pepsi. The youngest is in his fourth year at UCF, Go Knights, where he is studing hospitality management.
