Mom's Veggie Garden 2008

I spend most of my crafting time scrapbooking.  This is my first love and find myself always drawn to creating scrapbook pages instead of cards or other paper crafts.  Of course, I am years behind in my endeavors.  I am working on scrapbooking my entire families photo history, LOL!!! Crazy, ya think and I scrapbook just about every picture I take. (What was I thinking!)  I want my family to have photos in ablums to tell our story and just photos in a box or still in the envelopes. 

A few weeks ago, I spent a Sunday afternoon scrapbooking with friends and used some awesome border and page kits I have received from many different SCS swaps.

This 2 page 12x12 layout was made with a Four Season Scrapbooking Page Kit Swap I hosted in the Spring, 2009. Each kit included: 3 sheets of coordinating 8 1/2 x 11 pieces of cardstock and designed paper and 3-4 page accents or emblishments.  This kit was created by SCS friend StampinGoodDeeds (Susan). Included in the kit was the 1-8 1/2 x 11 sheet of green check paper, a coordinating sheet of buttercream yelloe cardstock and a lovely sheet of stamped flowers.  I used the stamped sheet of cardstock and green cardstock from my stash  to create the page borders and matted the photos in the buttercream yellow and a the green cardstock from my stash. She includes a varity of page accents, I could not use them all.  I used several daisy flower punches, brads, the stamped bee accents and the quote.  These pictures are of my mom's veggie garden, 2008.

This page was created from another wonderful scrapbooking page kit received in the same swapped I hosted.  Included in the kit was the green and blue patterned paper, the buttercream ribbon and the 3-D floral emblishment. Sorry, I can't thank the swapper for the kit, no SCS name.   These are some additional pictures of my mom's veggie gard (2008).  It was a great year for her garden.  The tomato plants were over 6 feet tall and we would pick pumpkins, and sqash by the arm full.

Tracey these pages are beautiful, I agree with you, scrapbooking is my first love. I'm hoping this week to get a swap done that is due Nov 20th so I can spend between now and then working on my own personal pages. When I was unpacking my crafting supplies I realized how many wonderful swaps I have that I need to put to use. Thanks for sharing and for the motivation!!
