I'm all over the place when it comes to what year (decade) I choose to scrap next. Today's layout features some really terrible pre-digital age photos that I still felt the need to scrap. Isn't that face adorable?! I had put the pics aside years ago, but challenged myself to "just do it"! My "baby" is 13 now, so it's kind of bittersweet to look back on these pre-school days.
Papers are from Fancy Pants' Trendsetter collection, which I happened to pick up when I visited a real, true-to-life, brick and mortar scrapbook store recently.
That store was Scrappin' Friendzee. I had found it on a google search a while ago, but didn't have a good reason to seek it out. I lived on the other side of the river (read: other side of the world) from the place, and had no recommendations to spur me to make the drive. But last week Tommy and I had to drive over to pick up a bed frame from a shop on that side, and he asked if there was anywhere else I wanted to go while we were over there. A lightbulb went off in my head, and that's how I found myself wandering the aisles of an honest to goodness scrapbook store! Boy, I've missed browsing paper stacks. Internet shopping has its perks but it's just not the same.
Do you have an LSS (local scrapbook store) where you live?
P. S. Those tags on the top are not actual tags. It's a patterned paper! I cut around the top of the tag images, punched holes, folded to make a crease between each "tag", inked and then pop-dotted the paper on the page! Don't they look real?!
