Love To Scrapbook

Hi :) It's been picking up at work so got some overtime this past week and some next week ahead so not much time to scrapbook, so glad I plan ahead when I'm a design team member just in case and this is one of those just in case moments. Got to enjoy seeing the Little League World Series USA championship game today here at the house on TV with a record crowd in South Williamsport for the game today, what a game! It's great to see PA win it and now on to the big game tomorrow with playing against Japan :) Would love to see PA get the title this year, but if not they played one heck of a World Series and should be so proud at this moment making it this far without losing 1 game that is very impressive :) Okay so now onto scrappin :)
Were in a new month of challenges at Lasting Memories and this month's theme is "Techniques and Titles" and this week's challenge is - Mixed Media w/a BOLD title. This is a layout I did in May during LOAD515: Day 2 plus I made this layout using Counterfeit Kit Challenge for their national scrapbook day challenges of: 
This is one side of a 2 page layout (which I need to complete sometime in the near future :) This was based off a sketch from the sketchathon challenge that I cannot get access to now, but it was a fun one to do :). Also it was from the (Inter)National Scrapbook Day challenges over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge: Leslie's Gold glitter Challenge at Counterfeit Kit challenge.          
LOAD515: Day 2: Let’s talk Liner Notes, and dedications!
It’s always fun and interesting reading about who helped the artist make an album and who they dedicate the album to. Who do you dedicate your scrapbooks to and why?
Mixed Media w/a BOLD title is what I think I have :) The bold would be that word LOVE for the Maggie Holmes and the mixed media would be the embossed stamped image :)
 I've got various reasons why I love to scrapbook and alot of my pages focus on my grand kids :) Above 4 of Albert's kids together. Below picture is Brad's boys taken when we were over for Tristan's first birthday (very low key compared to Zachary's party)
 I had fun using the CTMH Gold embossing powder for fun details on my layout with the stamp on the title and the doily stamp scattered about the layout.
Then there is this cutie too :) Buddy brings life into our empty nester house. I addeed sequin stars to the layout and that fun glitter tape pennant for the gold glitter challenge. So to answer LOAD question:  Who do you dedicate your scrapbooks to and why? That produced my journaling for the layout.
I scrapbook because I enjoy doing it. But I have to dedicate my scrapbooking to the moments that are captured by the camera. I have a family I love to scrapbook about and one page can't be dedicated to all my stars.
(I don't think 2 pages will be enough but I will give a try :) Put that on my list to do for September to finish off this layout.
Thank you for stopping by and Who do you dedicate your scrapbooks to and why?
I hope to see your creation on the Lasting Memories link up soon.


  1. I love the touches of gold you added!

  2. Tina, I love the gold and the stars. It looks like a labor of love. So I had to leave a comment because of your pooch. :) We have a blue heeler that keeps us very BUSY. He is 15 months old, named Jagger, and we discovered just this past week that he is an awesome camping dog, but gets bored easily at home. He's high maintenance but totally lovable. Good luck with work...mine will begin to pick up after Labor Day again until the snow flies. Happy crafting!

  3. Beautiful!!!! LOVE the gold with the blue!!!

  4. I love all the gold and the amazing title. So cool with all the different fonts and techniques.

  5. Great job with the gold! That is one color that intimidates me and you pull it off wonderfully on your layout!
