Fun Monday - My crafty side...

Karmyn has picked a topic that I love - crafts. I did say I love them, not that I was any good at them. I wish I could post pictures of the curtains I am making, but I was delayed some in the process due to a crappy sewing machine (new one has been purchased and it is going a lot smoother now...). My super crafty neighbor has been my mentor in this process and without her, I am not sure what they would look like...

Anyways, instead I will give you one of my favorite scrapbook pages. I 100% love to scrapbook. I love to create something with pictures that is cool looking and appealing. My only problem? I am really, really not creative and spend most of my time lifting ideas off of other people, websites and books. So, if you have any good ideas, bring it. I love to copy.

Not the world's greatest pictures, but you get the idea.

Go visit Karmyn for more participants....

Nice pages!! I want to get into scrapping...I keep saying I will and then I never do!!

CPA Mom said...

Nice pages! I'm totally going to copy you! Where is that last one from? Neat idea to cut up the pic.

EC said...

The pictures are great! I cannot scrapbook at all - so it doesn't matter to me if you copy, lol, they look great!

Beautiful pages! I'm so behind, but love scrapbooking so much!

Rachel said...

Those are great!! I've thought about doing scrapbooking, but, I'm like you...not creative and would have to steal ideas! But, seriously, those are great!

Sometimes I miss not having all the pages there in an album to actually put my hands on. Do you get them out with the kids to look at?

ChrisB said...

Those are beautiful photos I can see why they are favourites.

Julie said...

Great pages. I just finished a book for my mom's birthday party. I wish I had spent that much time on my own stuff though! : Yes, I'm selfish like that - it's so hard to find cropping time.

First off, I just have to say everytime I come here I get such a kick out of your banner! Now onto scrapbooking. I want to start stamping and scrapbooking and your scrapbook pages are great incentives. Beautiful work.

That's the great thing about scrapbooking - I "scraplift" all the time, but no each page looks different and unique!

I like the cut-up picture. Very unique.

Very nice layouts!

The Sleeping Beauty castle one is really cool. I'd copy that one. :)

Your pages are good.
I like to scrap book to and that is what my post will be about tonight when I get the chance to post it..

Beckie said...

I really like the last one - cool idea!

It is hard for me to come up with original ideas when scrapping.

Happy Fun Monday!

Pictures always create a wonderful image that we can so enjoy - when they are of our loved ones!!

As you have so beautifully expressed.

Pamela said...

I think I messed up by never being a scrapper

Don't think it was so popular those years ago

SJ said...

Very nice work - so crafty! Even though you say you aren't.

I never got into scrapbooking, but am thinking now that maybe I should have. Hmmm.

Kelly M said...

Awesome JOB!! I used to thoroughly enjoy scrapbooking..now just don't have enough time or space to do it in...you need an entire room just dedicated to it.

mjd said...

Nice execution of the ideas. I like your scrapbooking. My pictures are either in a box somewhere, or the newer pictures are stored on my computer.

Pendullum said...

Those are wonderful memories to have captured...Thank you for sharing them...

Tiger Lamb Girl said...

theotherbear said...

They look great - especially like the last page.

Bethany said...

I have a bajillion dollars worth of scrapbooking stuff and nothing to show for it! Can I send it to you with my pics?

Woodlandmama said...

Great job!

Emma in Canada said...

Where did you get the patience to cut around all the pics of the baby? I am so far behind on scrapping, Sophie doesn't have a single page of her own!

lisa's chaos said...

I have wanted to join in the scrapbooking but I have no ideas of my own either, mind if I steal yours! :)

Melissa said...

So cool!

Jippy said...

I feel so intune to you now! I swear I have been wondering when we were going to see some scrap booking pages ! cool!

Scribbit said...

I'm impressed. I'm scrap-bookingly challenged so I'm always interested in what others come up with.

Dear amy w. The scrapbooking is great! I would love to scrapbook some of my photos but I don't have any materials or any idea how to start. And no creative streak hehehe.
