Long time, no write! 😃 I did plan to take a bit of a hiatus over Christmas but my computer unexpectedly died and I’m still waiting for a replacement. Right now I’m stealing time on my husband’s computer so I can post my Show & Tell Lo’s for Simple Scrapper’s January content. I’ll be back blogging regularly within the next week or so (fingers crossed!).
My Story Starter LO this month allowed me to reminisce a little and scrapbook a few of my favourite books. I loved being able to put these on a LO especially since it isn’t something I would normally do.
I had fun playing with stencils and modelling paste, as well as adding more pictures using a flap design:
My second LO features one of the pics I took of Molly and Gabe during our Christmas Card photo session:
I love the template I used for this one and it worked perfectly with the fence in the photo.
The shine from the silver and white embossing powder is great:
And I had some fun with the modelling paste on the cloud too:

I’ve always wanted to dedicate a scrapbook to my favorite books. So many ideas and so little time.
Your second layout is simply beautiful! Your lines around the photos repeat the visual of the rain at the top. And, I MISS EMBOSSING!
Thank you, Lora! It was fun picking some of my favorite and remembering them. And I love embossing myself – so much fun!
