I decided to take a break from doing my friends album and to scrapbook a LO of my own children. I printed out over 2,000 photos...every picture I had of them so I have plenty to pick from.
First sorry that the pictures stink but I took them inside my craft room since it was raining outside. Plus I already put on my comfy PJ's at 6:00pm and didn't think the neighbors would appreciate that one!
I designed this LO around several challenges. These are pictures of my two angels Mikey and Annie playing in the sprinkler. It is hard to make out but they are trying to drink the water as it is shooting out of the volcano. My daughter was a very tiny girl and the bathing suit she was wearing was either 18 months or 24 months (and she was 3yrs old) and as you can see it kept drooping off of her. But you dare not tell her she was small because she would yell "I am not SMALL....I am a BIG girl!!!" What sweet memories......... I left several areas blank so I can journal about the day. This one will be framed and hung in my office because it makes me smile and think of them.
Here are the challenges I based them off of:
Frosted Designs - Color combo...I had so much fun playing with the colors they picked I had to do another one! And the funny thing is some of those colors are not my cup of tea and I normally wouldn't use them...boy how things have changed!!
My Creative Time "Throwback Thursday" challenge. Emma picked the cartridge Doodlecharms..I had so much fun I had to do another one. For this one I used the sun.
Stuck On U Sketch
Delightful Sketches Summer theme
Bitten By the Bug 2 the challenge was to use the Rainbow from the Once Upon a Princess cartridge. I used my PK-641 Princess Faces stamp set that I just got from Peachy Keen Stamps.
This is one of the first blogs that got me going on this LO because of the rainbow theme. My daughter used to sing all of the time "Somewhere over the Rainbow". She didn't know all of the words but the way she sang it at only 3 years old was just to cute. That's why I had to put little girlie goo faces in the clouds. And now I say that she is somewhere over the rainbow... :(
On my twins birthday a quick rainstorm came thru and there was a double rainbow over my house which of course I got pictures of. A couple of days before I was having a rough day missing my kids and the same thing happened...a double rainbow. I like to think of that as their way of telling me that they are okay and they are with me.
