Scrap Pages - here they are!

Okay, here are two of my favorites from last night. OH! And I got 8 pages done, not 7! Not the best speed....but that's ok. It was fun. We're going to a different place on Feb 10th, but this time I'll be the lone paper scrapper with a bunch of digiscrappers around me!

This first page is made from my favorite picture of the boys in a long time. Mamak took this when she did our family photos this year. We have a Christmas Jammie tradition; the boys always get matching Christmas Jammies. This is the first year that Andy *sniff sniff* couldn't have matching ones. He is too big, and had to get them from the boys' section. Anyway, I used black card stock as a base. Then I tore the edges on a piece of Basic Grey (black tie, maybe??). I mounted the photo on a piece of basic grey. I cut strips of black cardstock to go under the photo as an accent. I used a Making Memories white rub on and my white gel pen to title and journal it. That's it! I told you I was a simple scrapper!

This second page uses a picture from Matthew's work Christmas party this year. It was our first experience getting dressed up for a work function outside of a military ball. I used Basic Grey Fruitcake papers along with basic black cardstock. I accented it with basic grey wholy cow rub ons. Again, pretty simple!

I have a few more I'll show you later. The post-it note holder will be up tonight or tomorrow, so keep checking back! Hope you aren't too cold wherever you are.....we have ice on our trees here! We're gonna have some baked potato soup to warm us up!
