I chose the 'Handsome' kit because I haven't really used grey very much and I was looking for a bit of a challenge.I started off doing a 12x12 layout of Richard and Kody because I had a great photo that would work with the April challenge at Scrapbook Dreams.
The challenge was to cut up a photo and I must admit that after feeling a bit hesitant at first I LOVE the results. This layout is called 'Buddies' and is about my niece Kody and her 'Buddy' Poppa.
Next I decided to do a double 8x8 layout for Kody's album. Kody's favourite question at the moment is "What doing?" Apparently she asks everyone 'What doing?' all the time! Very cute the first few times but not so much by number 25!!! She calls Mum "Gamma" and Richard is "Pop-pa" so I decided to use that as part of my title. Here's the left side:
Once I'd done the three layouts I still had 2 whole sheets of paper left and I was still itching to scrap so I had a quick look through my stash and found a mini tag album. I 'think' I remember getting it in a sale about 5 years ago because it was cheap... better late than never as far as actually doing something with it goes.
It's nearly Richard's birthday so I thought since I had a few photos of him and Kody I would make him a mini album about their relationship. EVERYTHING got inked, distressed, grunged etc... and it let me make use of ALL of the bits of paper I had left over from the layouts :)
Here's a bird's eye view of the album:Front cover:Pages 1 & 2:Journaling: Kody likes to ask lots of questions! Her favourite one at the moment: What doing?
By the time I'd finished the mini album I only had two small pieces of cream cardstock left! That's great value from a $12 paper kit don't you think??? If you want one of these kits... or one of the other two kits available check them out HERE.
I hope you are all enjoying the 'extra' hour today :) Shell xx
