So as I am sitting here wondering how long I can get away with NOT unpacking my house and wishing my craft room would hurry up and be done already… I realized. I’ve talked a good talk about scrapbooking, I’ve shown you the dream desk I would like to scrapbook at… but I’ve never shown you any of my scrapbook pages!
I have dozens of completed pages sitting in albums… not being seen. One of my absolute favorite things to do is sit down and look through the albums. Of course it’s even better if I’m sitting down to show someone my albums! Nothing makes something better then sharing it with friends, family and those you love.
So here are two pages from my college scrapbook! The first is a funky little page that I made Senior year! One of my good friends, Ashley, is a tiny little bitty thing and (typically) a very serious person. Well finals in college can make serious people do silly things… like climb inside a giant recycling coke bottle in an attempt to scare your friends. We helped her climb inside and she waited (not very quietly) until groups of people would walk by… then she would scare them. It was a horribly silly thing to do… and that’s one of the reasons why it’s such a fun memory!
I love to use embellishments on my pages… flowers are pretty typical but this page has a host of unusual embellies! The little coke bottle cap letters were a nice touch and the metal aspect of those led me to include other metal items. Like the metal wire or the metal sheet that was die cut into adorable little butterflies! At least I thought they were adorable!
My second page is a little snapshot into my family… as they were in my college days. On the left you can see my parents and I in my college dorm. They would come several times a year to watch me cheer and this was a football game Sophomore year! On the right is the rest of my little family… my younger brother Will and all of our pets! You can see the two beagles we grew up with (Scouty is on the left and Belle is second from the right) as well as my mom’s dog Princess Peach (the long haired miniature dachshund that is second from the left) and my kitty cat Lily. You might have seen her on my about page… she was a present from my parents on my sixteenth birthday so she appears in a lot of my scrapbook pages!
There you have it… a snapshot into my little family circa 2008!
I experimented with hanging embellishments on this layout… like the little hanging tags and the little hanging birdhouse. I thought they turned out really cute! But ! am slightly biased 😉
