I am THAT mom. The one who has a camera in her hands at all times. The one who sees her daughter doing something cute and says, "make her keep doing it so I can get the camera!" Partly it is because I have wanted to be a mom my whole life and EVERYTHING my daughter does is amazing. Partly it's because I (gasp!) love to scrapbook and wouldn't love it as much without the pictures!
That being said, sometimes there is no significance to a page other than that I liked the pictures and HAD to scrap them. Or maybe that I had a neat embellishment I just HAD to use. In this case, it was both!
I took these pictures on the first warm day of Spring, on a day I had to change my daughter out of pants and put on a skirt because it was so nice. In both of these shots she was sticking out her tongue, even though they were taken an hour or so apart. So of course I thought of the neat title I had that matched the colors and the attitude! Doodlebug makes them and they are called Headlines. They come in all different varieties, but I think Spunky fit well here!
Because the colors in Grace's shirt were red, white and blue I went right to the 4th of July section at the scrapbooking store. The patterned paper is by Adornit and has near red swirls. Then I chose some Tim Holtz cardstock. I tore the edges of each frame using a ruler to give it a distressed look. Then I clipped on 2 star clips and added some stars that I punched, inked and stamped.
My only other need was for journaling. I cut 2 photo corners with my Sizzix and placed them opposite one another then simply write the journaling inside with a white pen.
Sometimes you need a simple project to give you a sense of accomplishment. Sometimes you can't find any more than 10 minutes in a day and want to get something done! Try this simple layout next time you want to quickly scrap some fun pics!
