I've been bitten by the bug!

The scrap booking bug that is, I have never scrapped before aside from a couple of 6x6 about me pages. But I took some great pictures on our recent camping trip and decided to give it a go.
I am still trying to figure out the camera thing. But I think it needs to be viewed as a 2 page spread. I am so happy with how this turned out, granted it took me 3 days to finish it but I am proud of it. I used the photo corner punch from SU! and coated the cut outs in crystal effects and then pored sand on them. I love the texture they provide. I used the in colours from SU!, river rock and blue bayou.....I can't say enough about these colours.
I love the photo's of Andrew i took. It was a magical beach and the light was just perfect for the photo op.

I look forward to returning to the beach, next year!

The lighting for these pics is not great. LOL But I love the photo's just the same. My camera has a broken shutter button and I have not been able to have it repaired. So some of my pictures turn out blurry. I printed out the picture of Laura and her Dad in sepia too. It looked very nostalgic.

I had to keep piece and scrap this picture of Charlotte. I took the picture of her through a tree trunk. I like how it turned out. I am going to work on getting more scrap type items. I really enjoy this.....the kids enjoy helping to design their pages too. I am also going to jump on the trend wagon and try digital scrapping too!

Right now I am researching 12x12 printers and scanners. More for my ever growing wish list!
