Fun Rugged Scrapbook layout

April 22, 2013

Welcome back.

With all that has been happening in the world recently (including another devastating earthquake in China) I have been reminded off how important it is to document and keep meaningful keepsakes of all our family and friends.  I will always remember after the Christchurch earthquake in February 2011  I watched a TV news item about how one of the partners of a woman killed in the earthquake got a lot of solace and comfort from looking through the memory books or scrapbooks that she had created.  Books that had been made with love.

As I have been saying in previous posts I have been completing my son’s scrapbook album.  In this fun page layout I have used the Creative Memories Bright Decorative Cardstock and to make it go further I have cut it in half and used it on another page which I will show at a later date.  As you can see I have continued to use the Border Maker Twinkle Chain and picket fence cartridges and to finish decorating the page I have used some Rugged embellishments.  I have used the Custom Cutting System oval cutters to trim the photos and that has helped to keep the focus on a very cute James.  What has been lovely is that I have been watching James grow up all over again.  That has been quite unexpected, but very enjoyable and pleasurable.  I hope that he will look at this book the same way as the gentleman in Christchurch did.
