Scrapbook Layout: Pieces

This is a layout Cheryl designed at her Stamp Class, but that I put together in a different way.  I used almost all the same pieces, but it turned out so different!  (I hope Cheryl doesn't think I wrecked her design!) 

These pictures are ones that my sister has recently scanned in her effort to digitize all our family photos (quite a project, and one I'm really grateful for!).  These are all me as a toddler or pre-schooler.  We have been so entertained by looking at these types of pictures because we immediately see features that we notice in our own kids.  I think Sammy does a little side bend like the top left picture, and the older pictures of me remind me of Zack's smile.  My mom looked at these and could remember where several of the dresses came from - she made the red with white rickrack hat and long-sleeved set (at the bottom of the title) so I would be shaded in the boat while my dad fished. 

If you are curious about the puzzle pieces, check out Cheryl's post here - she has the supplies listed too.  One thing she doesn't mention is the crumpled style flower at the left.  We had three flowers punched with the Fancy Flowers Punch.  We misted all of them with water and then crumpled them up into a tiny ball!  It was intimidating to crunch our pretty flowers!  But then we opened them up, let them dry and inked them a bit and it made a beautiful vintage effect, especially fastened together with that fancy Antique Brad


  1. I love it! I wish you had brought it over last night - I can't see all the details on the computer! Love love how you put it together do differently!

  2. I'm glad you like it!

    After thinking a little more about this layout, I am feeling happy that I put some old pics in without telling myself I would have to commit to scrapbooking "all" or even an album's worth of older photos. Because that kind of thing paralyzes me and this was just fun!
