Scrapbooking For My Kids!






Details: For those of you that know me, you know we adopted our kids over 2 and a half years ago! And I yet have started to scrap the journey.

So I have made two pages tonight using my new Inque Boutqiue Stamps and some basic layering. No fancy bells or whistles here I wanted the pictures to stand out. They are a shocker, Yes this is the actual orphanage. :(

I dont know how to take a good photo of a 12 x 12 yet. I will try again, These pictures came out decent.

I will be making tons more layouts soon

What a great idea - I'm sure your kids will really appreciate that when they're older. I like how you make it simple so that you can focus on the orphanage.

Good luck in your scrapbooking. It seems like it takes forever to do just one page! But the results are so worth it!

I love these layouts! It's nice to see some scrapbook pages, most of us do more cards then scrapbooks...myself included! I appreciate that you shared your "wonderful" moments with us!

It is so beautiful what you're doing to treasure those memories. Really it is. Well, don't know how to go through that many pics but I have about half of that number ready to scrap and double of that to scan and scrap.
