Scrapbook progress


I've been scrapbooking lately with the help of my trusty little Cricut cutter. This handy little guy helps me cut out flowers, hearts, shapes, words......etc. etc.etc.

I've gotten a few pages done from me growing up. I'm only at the 8 months mark. 27 years and 4 months to go! Here are some pictures I took of the pages so far.
There will be a little journaling on the pink rectangle. Just birth info, date, time, weight.

The one on the left is of me and my mom, the one on the right is her dad. How wild is the sofa he's sitting on with me? Oh the eighties.

I'm not sure if you can see the wallpaper from this little picture, but there are orange giraffes on it. I pulled the color scheme for the page from the wallpaper and hope to cut out the giraffe to accent the blank area on the left.

My dad always calls me "Daisy" that's where the influence for this page came in. I still have to cut and paste the word "Daisy" in white and place it above the photo.

Just a collection of pictures of me at 6,7 and 8 months old. Note to parents out there, take as many photos of your second third and any other children to follow the first. There are 2 albums full of pictures like this of me and not so many of my sister. She says she's not jealous but I know she is :)

I'm still a little shaky on the accents and embellishments, but I think the pages all look great so far.

Wow! They look great to me. I wish I was a scrapbooker. But combine lack of patience with money always spent at the thrift mall and what do I get? No scrabooks. :(

Your scrapbook pages are too cute! What a great keepsake for you. I used to scrapbook, but I was too anal to handle the mess that it creates. Me? Issues? Yes, you could say so.
