My National Scrapbooking Day Pages

I hadnt planned anything for National Scrapbooking Day but at the last minute my friend Wendy decided to come to my house and scrapbook with me late.. It was a fun change becuz' we usually scrapbook at her house with her huge room full of supplies. I finally had a chance to share a few things from my stash-it was FUN... We have been playing out pages from some scrapbooking trends magazines.. Always nice to get the juices flowing with ideas from magazines..
My 1st page is my daughter and my husband(Daddy). I might have went a little over board with the jewels but hey-bling can only make it look better..I got tons of those jewel clusters at Michaels on clearance the other day-so I stocked up on them in all colors. Love my felt green thickers. I have been journaling a lot lately around my edges-really liking the way it looks..
This page is of my husband, Roger and his Daddy, Roger Lee. They both have bees-so we both have lots of bee swarms.. Here is one they captured at my house last spring. I used glimmermist on my Big chipboard B-in forest green. I used my felt green thickers again-lovin that color. I got those pretty jewel burst at CKC in Louisville in tons of different colors in Feb.. Then I just got my cute lil bees at Michaels for 50 cents the other day on Clearance too-dont u just love a sale!!
This one is of my husband on a train at work one day back in April 2004. He is a Engineer for N&S Railroad but was working fireman this day. A man was out taking pictures of trains one day and asked these guys if he could take their picture-and he took it and mailed us this 5X7...It is great.. Very simple page of just layering paper over paper. I got these cute lil screw brads at CKC in Charlotte or Louisville last year.. I had to take pictures of most of these pages -mostly becuz they were so thick.. but this one becuz the strips were just not matching up at all..
This last one is of my daughter back in April 2006. This was her 1st trip ever to build a bear. I got this great tree CKC also.. Also got this stencil to this owl i used. Then of course everything looks way better with stickles.. just incase U want to copy this page-my pictures and pattern paper were 3X4 inches.. I seen this page made somewhere-but the squares where a lot smaller. I love how I was able to use 3 pictures on this.I have had these pictures to scrapbook a long time..
So I hope everyone else got to scrap some on NSD-if not-never too late to catch up!!
