So...

Again, it's been a long time since I've updated this blog. For a while I just wasn't in the mood, honestly. But - as you can see below, I've finally added some layouts here, and will be adding more as time allows.

I'm very lucky...I have a pile of black and white baby pictures of myself. My father took all the pictures, he developed most of them, too. There are some color pictures, too. I'm really excited to scrap these pictures - they'll all be in their original format, no cropping of the photos or trimming away the white border. Someday I need to go through the stack of negatives I have, too. I'm sure I'll find more beauties in there to scrap.

See ya soon!

Sweet Life

Me, at 3 years old, taken outside the apartment building in Flushing, Queens, where we lived at that time. My mother made the hat, and knitted the sweater. My father took, and developed the pictures. I smiled for the camera, explored, and enjoyed the little box of Good n'Plenty.

Basic Grey Dark Chocolate letters, Bazzill cardstock, Prima say it with crystals spray, BoBunny cardstock for base, silk flowers from Michaels.

Sweet Baby


Me, again. February, 1966 - just a few weeks old. So sweet - hard to believe I was little like that. :)

Graphic 45 paper, Bazzill cardstock, Prima flowers, Marcella by K embellies, Thickers pink script letters, silk spray from Michaels.



Mom and Me


Just a simple layout of mom and me. Taken February 1967. Graphic 45 Baby to Bride paper, acetate overlay from a pack I had, Prima flowers, Thickers letters, and flower spray cut out on the Cricut, again from the Storybook cartridge. (I'll be using that a lot!)

Sweet Baby


This is a layout of me, in the hospital isolette. :) Taken the day I was born - January, 1966, 43 years ago. My father took the picture, and later developed it. I'm so lucky to have this picture, and many others I'll be scrapping in the near future.

Graphic 45 patterned paper - Baby to Bride line, Bazzill cardstock, Prima flowers, and other silk flowers from Michaels. I also used the "A wish came true" phrase from the Storybook cartridge on the Cricut. <3
