Garrett's Baby Book & Happy Memorial Day Weekend
I hope you are all out enjoying! We have plentiful rain here, so no park for the kids. Hard to stay dry with a wet slide! Hopefully we'll be able to go out in a few days.
I started this awhile ago on the Simply Snapshots 9x9 pages which recently retired. Now that there's another one on the way, I better finish the other three baby books before I'm really behind!
I thought I was so clever, buying enough to finish the book.. However I forgot to buy the album and sheet protectors to go with it!! So to coin my sister, Holly's, favorite phrase, I said, "I can fix this" and proceeded to do just that.
I wasn't quite sure how to adapt these at first. As you know I am not a great fan of white space. I also don't have a lot of time and didn't want to spend more on a "finished" project. Suck it up kid, white space it is! I am really quite pleased with how they turned out, though. Almost minimalist, but with enough pop and color to be fun.
Some pages were just glued straight onto the White Daisy base, but on others I simply removed the photos on the backs and put them on new bases. I didn't spend a lot of time with B&T's - just more of a collage to highlight the pictures, with a few accents and some journaling as needed.
Yet another one of those projects that just needs to get done before the kids think we don't love them because they never got their own scrapbook, lol! If I hadn't had these already printed, I really think I'd have gone with Studio J for this. I really like how easy it is to get caught up and just get your pages DONE! (If you want a membership, they are only $64.95 this month - just ask me how!)
Hope your Memorial Day is memorable and not for the rain *smiles*!
