I finally got out the pages I had done while at the Fairview Retreat in November and finished them. I needed to reprint some photos because of bad color, and finish some journaling. You can view more of the family pages I did while at Fairview, on my other blog at askmichelespecialpaperprojects.blogspot.com.
I wanted to put this one here at Something Special, because this is my beautiful grandbaby Claire, and I know I have shown her before with the dress I made for her blessing, but I wanted to show the layout I did for her too because I used pieces from Storytellers Club to embellish, which I designed and had published. I can't take much credit for her beautiful looks, but I can take credit for what she is wearing and the layout which showcases her sweetness, and the blessing we were celebrating.
She is the sweetest little baby girl! We all love her very much!
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
