Scrapping "Just for Me"

I've been on vacation for a week now, and I've FINALLY scrapped something just for me! It took me all day long to get it done. I think I've lost my mojo! LOL! I've been doing some cardmaking and some scrapping, but most of it was for someone else....so this one was just something I wanted to scrap!

Photos of my newest granddaughter, Maggie, who was born last November. I took these photos when she was about 9 days old. The shaped paper is a Jenni Bowlin paper, the pink and green patterned paper is from Paper Hearts. I matted the photos with a piece of bright pink and punched the bottom edge with a Martha Stewart deep edge punch, then tied a ribbon around the bottom. The title tag was made by stamping the gerber daisies (Flourishes stamp), and then cutting out parts of it before cutting the Spellbinder label. I colored the daisies with Copic markers and inked the tag with some pink inks. The Sweet Dreams label was printed on the computer then cut with a Spellbinders die. The big rubon (I love you) is a Daisy D rubon that I've had forever. The pearl swirls are Prima pearls...and the little pearls on the title tag are from Robin's Nest. The two tickets in the top left were cut with the Tim Holtz ticket die, then I stamped the sentiment on them and hand drew the border lines. The shaped mat was smooth edged, but I trimmed it with my scalloped scissors and added a little doodled dot to each scallop. I also added a bit of faux stitching around the edges of the large mat. The journaling is tucked behind the top photo with a little scalloped pull that I added pearls too.

WHEW! Now...off to go grocery shopping (UGH!) and then hopefully I can get a little more crafting done today! Thanks so much for stopping by....Until next time...

Hugs!

I tried commenting on your great Hunny Bunny lay-out. He's sooo cute and your Bugs Bunny lounging there is so clever. Don't know why the Comment box wouldn't come up.

Everytime I come to your blog, I'm jealous because you have so many grandchildren. I only have 4. If I had known how they would constantly gift my life, I would have made sure I had more, especially during the few teen years of each, when they seem to have a spurt of family-phobia for awhile.

All those kids, and a fulltime job, and you still manage to Comment on our Simplicity Challenge cards. I do sooooo appreciate that!

Your Maggie page is priceless.
