Scapbook Sunday: Love

Welcome scrappy friends! We are back to give you another Sunday full of motivation and inspiration for your scrapbooking. I know that having a deadline to create a page is very motivating for me, even if I am throwing it together last second 😉

The theme this month is LOVE. Well, really, what else could it be in February, right?! And there are so many kinds of love to celebrate and commemorate!

If you are following along in order, you just arrived from Andrea Tracy-Tucker's blog. Gor-geous, right?!

My page is actually going to hang on the wall in an 8'x10" photo frame. It is my current favorite way to do memory keeping.

The handsome fellow in the middle of these photos is my 25 year old son. The past November, he went from being a bachelor with no children, to a step-father to 4 children aged 5 to 14! He stepped right into this with only minor bumps and push-backs from the kids, and they LOVE him. These photos are actually from August, before the wedding. How many young men do you know that would be up for this challenge? Plus, he knows that he will never have any children other than these, as his wife had to have a hysterectomy at a young age.

I am so proud of this young man. He has such a big heart, and understands having clear and healthy boundaries for these kids, which makes them feel safe, secure, and loved. Plus he knows how to have fun!

I also love these kids!! So full of life, and uniqueness, and laughter!

The how for this page:
  • Watercolor paper is the base, and there is a wash of Fresh Fig, Berry Burst, and Sweet Sugarplum as the background.
  • Eastern Medallions, Sassy and Sweet, and Petals and More dies to cut various shapes with vellum, Gold Foil cardstock, and colored cardstock. Embossed the heart die cut with the Layered Leaves embossing folder.
  • Heat embossed the sentiment from Petal Palette in white on black cardstock.
One more shot, because I can't waste a good photo! 😎

I am currently in love with Foil cardstock die cuts... and Glimmer paper diecuts! SO lovely!

And now, to one talented and hilarious lady, Cathy Caines!! Seriously, she has a gift.😍
