All About Me

Since I now have 2 grandchildren (and hopefully more to come in the future) I decided to do an "All About Me" book.  My mom passed on all the photos from when I was little.   I wanted to scrap them anyway, so a book about me would be a great thing to pass on to my grandchildren.  Here are the first two pages.  I found it a bit more challenging to choose colors for these vintage pictures.

I used Core'dinations paper for the borders around the certificate and the photo.  Text cut using Wild Cards cartridge with the Cricut.  Flourish cut using the Gazelle.  The "journalling" in the lower corner was scanned from the back of the certificate, in my mom's handwriting.

I realized its been 2 weeks since I posted any work.  I'm going to make a concerted effort to do a better job of posting more often!

Thanks for looking....

Koala-t hugs,
