I haven't scrapbooked many of my baby photos but I'm starting to take them out of the albums that they've been in for years. Those horrid albums with the sticky back pages and the plastic covers that are made out of all sorts of things that can ruin your photos and eat them away.
I've been trying to come up with creative ways to scrapbook my photos and right now, there's an "About Me" challenge going on over at Soul Scrappers and it's all about scrapbooking about the year you were born and including some baby pictures of yourself. We'd love for you to come over and give it a try!
I used Kraft cardstock for my base page. I added some photo corners punch out of Innocent pink cardstock for some extra color and balance.
I mounted 3 of my baby photos onto Innocent pink cardstock and added some digi paper (from a past StampTV kit) and some borders on top and bottom of the photos with some of the stamps from the In Stitches set with dark rose ink. I added some self-adhesive rhinestones in each of the scalloped images under the photos. I added some sateen flowers, buttons and ribbons (all from GinaK) and some stamped flowers from the Aloha set.
The title was done by stamping the oval from the Versatile Verses set along with the "Happy Birthday" image (also from the Versatile Verses set) and writing in the year I was born with a black glaze pen.
I looked up the year 1976 on wikipedia.org and used some of the famous happenings from my birth year as my journaling. I included my birth information into the important happenings.
So, what happened in your birth year? Do you have some pictures hanging around that desperately need scrapbooking but you were just waiting for some inspiration? Come check out my scrapbooking community, Soul Scrappers, and join the fun and the challenges! We welcome all kind of scrapbookers!
