First of all I want to thank all of you for being wonderful blog friends and leaving such kind comments all the time. THANK YOU! :D
I made this layout yesterday after Emily over at EAD Designs asked me to be a full time Creative Team member! WOO HOO! I was so beyond excited and of course I said YES! There is an announcement on her blog today.
This layout actually started out as a card and evolved from there as I got to thinking that I had never scrapbooked a page about ME. I was also reading an online article on Scrapbooks Etc. saying that you should scrapbook about your blog or online life for your kids to look back on and get an idea of "you". So I went with it and this is what I came up with. I have to go back and find the article, cause I believe it's actually a contest as well.
Before having my second baby I used to be CAUGHT UP on my scrapbooks and would scrap recent happenings in our lives just after they happened. Needless to say I haven't done that in a while, LOL. So it was lots of fun to scrap this event right away. I printed my blog banner (which my husband designed for me, now I just need him to FINISH my blog) and the photo of me on our color printer. I always go and have my photos printed at the store, so it was neat to have what I needed ASAP. OH, I also used the rub on applicator that come with my EAD Rub ons to apply the streaks of cranberry ink, in case you were wondering what other uses they had. ;)
What I used:
Black Rub Ons: EAD DESIGNS!
All Paper: Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday (they are having a DT call if you haven't heard!)
Ribbon: Cosmo Cricket Honey Pie
Stickers: Making Memories Sabrina
Stamps: CTMH June Word Puzzle, Whimsy Numbers, Simple Invites
Ink: CTMH Black and Cranberry
