Scrappy Sunday

We are continuing on with my great-niece's sweet 16 album.

These are the next two pages, where Jessica is opening her gifts and goofing off with her friends. My daughter makes her a make-shift hat out of Pink tissue paper and a huge turq. tissue paper bow, that was on one of the gifts.  I love to hear the 2 of them together laughing!

This is a 2 page lay out basically showing the winding down of the party. I used my design runner, I love to use it and so often forget I have it that is the main downfall of not having a dedicated craft room or studio; your stuff is spread out and you sometimes forget what you have.

I made sure that there is lots of little places for Jessica to put captions, as well as journal. I did make some of my own commentary along the way, but not much.

Here they are together.  Once again I apologize for the glare off the album sleeves, it would be just too much trouble for me to take it all apart for scanning or photos.

These now are the last couple of pages. Lots of room for journaling.

This is Jessica and her-at-the-time-boyfriend. She LOVED that little monkey, I do not remember if it was from him or not. I made the photo 5 x 7 cause it was so cute.  Then I did some "pencil-over" to match with the pretty printed lace on the paper (very old from PC)

 I also used my making Memories Grommet tool. I am so glad I
purchased this, adorable!!

The very last page in the book, giving her a place to actually LIST everything.

Next week, we'll visit some close up areas of this album, and talk about what makes it special.
