Scrapbook Pages

I am not very happy with the way the photos turned out. I need to figure out a better way of displaying them prior to taking pictures next time. Anyway, I will post them as I previously mentioned that I would.

Page 1/2 - Gabrielle enjoying a beautiful snow day
I will journal in the bottom left hand corner

Page 2/2 Photos compliments of Ms. Janie
This was my 1st time using transparencies. Expensive purchase, but I like the finished look. The embellishment says believe in clear rhinestones.

A 2 page spread of Dawson's "crib" aka nursery. The ecru strip on the right hand page will include my journaling when I get around to it.

Dawson 4 month old pictures taken at JCP. I have had this ribbon for a while now and was glad to find a place to use a little.
Gabrielle 3 year old pictures also taken at JCP. I love how this page turned out however feel the "all dressed up" addition would have been more fitting on another page.

This is a local family who goes WAY overboard in their holiday decorations. The money generated from donations is gifted to the lymphoma and leukemia society (if I recall correctly). The overall theme is penguins. It is like a mini blowup land on steroids. We have taken Gabrielle the past 2 years. It will definitely become a yearly stop for us. I will add a journaling box on the right hand page above the polar bear pic.

Don't be shocked - it's me, mom. I just wanted to send you a note to tell you that your scrapbooking is amazing. I'm so proud of you for doing this and for posting your blog - it is always a happy day when I discover you've posted something new. I love the pictures and the music as well as your writing style. You know I always wanted you to keep baby books but now in all honesty I think you have recorded more information and memories this way. I'm really hoping you are printing these out. Thanks too for showing A & S the pix of the prayer book - I'm sure that meant a lot to them.
Love you!

I really want to see the pages with Gabrielle in the snow - in person. I want to see how the vellum looks and how you used it. I never have much luck with the stuff. My mom found vellum tape, which is pretty neat, but I stay away from it most of the time. Great work!!
