Page Maps Challenge

I have not scrapbooked in a LOOOONG time! I was missing it! I am actually first, and foremost, a scrapbooker. I know it's hard to believe since I primarily post cards, but I have been scrapbooking for about 25 years. I actually started scrapbooking when supplies were hard to come by. I made patterned paper with construction paper and markers, and then got introduced to stamping by my high school art teacher - the rest is history. I happened to be browsing through some sketch blogs and came across this sketch/challenge on the Page Maps blog. They are celebrating the 4th anniversary of Scrapdango and are hosting a contest. Couldn't resist this sketch - I loved it!!
I seldom do a one page layout, so I added a second page that mimics the sketch. The size of these pages are 9x9, which is the size album I make for all of my kids. I used the Veranda Kit from Close To My Heart.

These pictures are the yearly pictures I take of my kids near their birthday. No special occasion, just pictures to note their ages. She is seven here. Thanks for stopping by today!

All Supplies are from CTMH (except the sentiment "So" from Verve stamps)


  1. The pages and your daughter are beautiful!

  2. WOW! The colors and style of Veranda perfectly compliment your beautiful daughter and her coloring.
