Bittersweet Scrapbook Page

Wow! A scrapbook page! I know it has been a very long time since I have managed to create a scrapbook page! My group of scrappin girls have had difficulty getting together and there was a lot of times that when we did, we did something besides scrapbook! Well, we finally started back up again by attending a scrap event. Unfortunately, I only got to do about 6 hours out of what was suppose to be more like 18 hours between Friday and Saturday...darn rental house has frozen pipes, so my husband had to do his landlord duties. But I will say, it felt good to scrapbook again! So hopefully, my scrappin' girls will get back on track (I know I need to send the email out for dates ladies!!).

So these pictures were the ones taken at the hospital when my daughter was born...they actually have a professional photographer that comes in and has a small studio room. So cool! I absolutely love the pictures, but I was having difficulty figuring out what to do with them because they were so special...I didn't want the "scrapbooking" to take away from them. Does that make sense? Anyway, there a a local scrapbook store (Live, Laugh, Love & Scrap in Oxford, MI) set-up at the scrap event and she brought the PERFECT paper for my pictures...brand-new Basic Grey Bittersweet DP. Once I saw the paper, I got so excited to make the page.

Once I had the DP, combined with some Bazzill paper that matched perfectly, I found a scrapbook sketch to start from from Page Maps. I found a fellow demonstrator that had the new 3 heart punch from Stampin' Up! and I got the letters for the title cut using the Storybook alphabet cartridge for the Cricut. So combining all of those elements , I came up with a page that made my pictures stand out.
That is all for now...this post is taking me a while to write since I am trying to write it only during the commercials of LOST...seriously the greatest show EVER!
