Scrapbooking

I don’t often share my scrapbook pages, but I’ve been catching up on them during my vacation and I’m proud of myself that I’ve gotten so many done! I do a book for each of my grandkids and usually do 4 or 5 pages for each of them every year. Halloween is a must, birthdays, Christmas and our yearly camping trip as well as sporting events or other special occasions end up in the scrapbooks.

This page is for my oldest grandson, Bryson. I goofed and set my camera to some weird setting, so the color was off on some of my photos. I really like them though, so I had them printed in black and white. I don’t usually do that, but I liked the contrast on these pages. All of my matting on this page is Stampin’ Up! Misty Moonlight. The rest of the products are treasures that I found in my travels and at garage sales. I couldn’t quite get the oval photo in the left corner to fit the way that I wanted so I trimmed off the edge.

Huntley is the next oldest, Bryson’s brother. We were up at Itasca State Park in Northern Minnesota, one of my favorite parks. It was a bit cold this year, and we got about 3-4 inches of snow. I was glad that we had 5th wheel campers and weren’t staying in tents.

Salem is my youngest grandson. He and his cousin Wyatt had fun making snowmen. I like using several different shapes for my photos. I usually add a mat layer behind them to make them stand out more. I sometimes cut around the photo like the one of Salem in the lower right hand corner if the photo seems to need to be showcased that way.

This final page is for Zen, Salem’s older brother. I used a yellow matting on the center photo for contrast. The rest of the photos are all matted with Soft Suede. I have one of the black and white photos of Zen that I cut to shape.

I don’t usually have as many photos on one page as I do on these pages, but I must have been in a photography mood because I had lots of photos that I liked and wanted to use. I’ll have to share pages of my grandsons Wyatt and Isaac in another post. For some reason I didn’t photograph any of their pages, and I can’t leave out two of the boys.
