None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Memories ...

There is always one moment in childhood when the door opens and lets the future in.

Good morning to all my fair friends and followers!

I am slowly but surely taking myself in hand and "scrap-booking" ages of photos and memories.

This has not been an easy task for me I assure you since scrap-booking has never been my forte. But I am finding it to be an interesting and challenging endeavor, so I will continue on with this new adventure and see where it will lead me. I have lots of 12 x 12 papers and possibly more time to indulge my new interest after the first of the coming new year. 

But we shall see ...


For today I am sharing a 12 x 12 two page layout.

No, you are not seeing things. While this appears to be a Christmas layout, it is not. That cute little chubby face is me around my first birthday. And as I was born in December, very close to Christmas, I decided I would use this fabulous kit I purchased during a sale at Hobby Lobby. The nice thing is, I still have plenty of the packet left so I will be able to create a Christmas layout as originally intended. Maybe. LOL ...

I was a bit dismayed to realized I had placed the tape rather crookedly on the paper, but sadly it stuck fast and I could not remove it to straighten it without damaging the paper :O(

Here are the two together and below are the pages individually




Supplies
Cardstock from Stampin Up! and Bazzill
Design paper from "Tis the Season" page kit from The Paper Studio
Alphabitties from Provocraft
"Pirouette" Embossing folder from Cuttlebug
"Tattered Poinsettia" die from Sizzix
Gold Tape from Studio G

I hope you enjoy these! Thanks for stopping by!
