My sister came over yesterday to do some scrapbooking. Here is a simple, 8x8 page I completed. I have decided to try to do more smaller pages. I feel like the traditional 12x12 are sometimes too large of an area to work with. I'll still do my share of 12x12's but this should be fun and different. This picture is of my son, Nathan, when he was 12 months old. I just can't stand all of the expensive professional photos I have sitting in envelopes. I decided to scrap them and get them out of my office.
Here is the recipe for this page:
Paper: Deja Views Little one collection
Tools: Cuttlebug, Quickuts die
Buttons: Doodlebug Design
Thanks for stopping by!
